Anybody that lets the kids eat ice cream straight out of the carton is of the highest character. My kids grew up camping all over the country in a pop up and they still talk about those trips. One now owns a pop up and the other uses a tent. The both love hiking. Raising your kids outdoors is a wonderful way to start them off ready to explore.

You'll have to change your photo at the bottom of your posts. It sounds like money very well spent. Just think of all the fond memories your family will have. Do you have any plans for a long trip this summer?

Ohh... the memories camping with the kids. Our time camping with the kids, when that size, came in the '60s and 70s.
We fished, so camping and fishing (boat) at one of the many large COE lakes went on just about every weekend till campgrounds closed for the winter.
Good looking truck/trailer combo.
Take lots of pics. When you get close to 80 you will enjoy those times even more.

Thanks guys. I updated my signature pic, must not have accepted it. ill fix it. I love taking pictures when we are out and about. Always nice to share them and to look back. We have a lot of small weekend and long weekend trips planned the largest is coming up in a few weeks (4 nights). currently Disney world is on the docket so the bulk of our vacation time and budget is being saved for winter 2020. Luckily there are a lot of nice parks within a few hours drive where we live.

just an evening of rain. kids played in the camper for a bit and had some treats. We kept the fire raging so it stayed lit while the awning kept us dry. could have been much worse. rainy days at camp are better than sunny days at home [emoticon]
