Hello from Ohio!

My husband and I traded our 73 VW Thing for a 62 ambassador, international, land yacht this weekend. We have two boys one who is 5 and the other who is 15 months. We decided the VW Thing was fun but it was time to build some memories camping with the kids. We have "played" in it the whole weekend and are looking forward to our first adventure. My husband and I are looking forward to the restoration. It is in decent shape but someone redecorated in the 80's so there is some work to do. Anyway, Just wanted to say hello!

These are the pictures from the PO.

That looks really nice and you will have lots of room for the children. I see you already have your flamingo! You are all in for some serious fun and memory making.

Hi fellow Ohioan

Larrry and I are in La Grange, Ohio. We have had a great time camping in Ohio and are glad to see lots of young families joining in on the fun times.
As blucloud says we are having an impromptu get together this weekend. We hope to plan another get together so that more Ohio folks (and anyone else who wants to come) can show up and camp with us before it is time to see snowflakes again. So let us know if you are interested!
Here is the link to that thread..right here on the Forums:

You will find everyone on here helpful and friendly, with lots of good advice, and lots of photos to help you with restoring the beauty to your "new" toy.
