Our First Trip

Just got around to buying our first TT. Its a Coachman Clipper Cadet, 16 ft. Big enough for the two of us and our attack dog Bella. We are both retired and decided to start traveling the USA. I'm a retired Navy DAV, and also retired from the Postal Service. We've got a lot to learn but from what I can see there are a lot of good people here who can break us in. York Maine will be our first stop and we cant wait. Looking forward to meeting some of you on the road.

Ken

Some of the nicest people I have EVER met were at campgrounds. I haven't met anyone yet who wasn't super nice.

Thanks very much for the welcome. We have spent a lot of time in Lancaster over the last 40 years. Our best friend from the Navy and his family lived there. Our friend Mike passed away earlier this year and we were fortunate enough to visit him to say goodbye about 3 days before he passed. We will always have fond memories of PA and will be traveling through there at the end of this month.

Welcome from recently retired NJ couple

I know you will enjoy Maine. We are driving up to Vermont next week to spend a week at Winhall Brook Campground run by Army Corps of Engineers. I know we will be early for the leaf change but it is always pretty up there. Enjoy your trip and campsite.
