I think it'd be fun! I'm married, but my wife is NOT a "camper", so the kids (b,12 & g,9) and I are it! ;-) We typically do the state parks around us (3hrs is farthest we've traveled so far), but we are limited to summer because my Sundays are tied up (I'm a pastor.)

If something works out summer '15 I'd be interested!

Ragin, I'm guessing you are a Louisiana native? We are only about 3.5 hrs from Baton Rouge, might have to meet in the middle sometime.

My wife just suggested that we should set a goal to camp at least once in every month for the next year. We're in Ohio and usually camp on October and March. We just need to add November through February. We might need to add some of the ideas floating around on here.

As for our family, my five year old daughter is really the reason we bought Shiny. We actually began our camping adventures by taking my then 3 year old to the central CA coast in a tent. At that point she was already more accustomed to fine hotels than a tent. And, oh yeah, the communal bathroom didn't do it for her. We like to say that Shiny was an expensive fix to Ivy peeing her sleeping bag on two consecutive nights.

My wife really led me into this life. Most of her fondest childhood memories are based on RV camping with her family in the Sierra Nevada mountains. We now try to search out opportunities to camp with other children. We attended Alumafandango a few weeks ago. The best part was finding another couple four rigs down from us with a 5 year old daughter of their own. Our two girls were inseparable during the week. We are now planning on our next outing together.

We have four daughters, ages 10 through 14. Our travels are with a 30 foot bunkhouse, but mostly we stay close to home at Hidden Ridge resort. Lots to do there and within easy driving distance of our home so we can pick it up and go elsewhere any time we choose!

I'm feeling less like a minority with every post. We are two working parents with 3 kids (4, 9 and 11) in Arkansas. Like most we are limited to weekends and 1 or 2 longer trips a year.

I'm glad to see this thread coming alive. I hope next year some of us can make small rallies.

families who camp together stay together

We travel with two boys ages 14 and 17 and being home learners, we have a lot of time to dedicate to streaming, off-season especially. Looking for teenagers in BC, Washington, Oregon and Idaho.

m.nolte,

Yep, Louisiana natives and a grad of UL Lafayette. We are currently living in the bootheel of Missouri. It would be good to meet up some time if we could make it work!

Yep! It's nice to find out that there are others who aren't yet even close to retirement or full-timing (though it would be fun!) 😉
