We always stayed in a cabin- at Black Moshannon-
we jumped right into a Camper- not the normal (from what I understand)- tenting- then pop up - then rv....
I am just wondering.....if anyone else jumped right in?

My husband grew up camping with a variety of trailers, 5th wheels, Class C and Class A.

As a couple we did tent, cabinish (private converted farm), and then when I got tired of buying new air mattresses we went looking for other options. Came home with a 30 foot camper!

Funny but true.

My wife grew up camping in a travel trailer. I gew up at my parents bungalow(cabin), with no amenities. Basically camping.
When we had our first house together, we couldn't keep a camper of any type on the property. So when we moved, a place for camper parking was on the list. Shortly after that, we had our first travel trailer. Had that for a few years, bought our 2nd travel trailer, now we have a Class C motorhome.


Really need to get my blogs back up to date

you know- I really do like the tent camping- we never did it that often- it has only been recently that we realized the importance of slowing down and really enjoying life to the fullest- but I think that being able to "rough it" with no ammenities... is a real skill- plus I am sure that you have some great memories from that bungalow Mikhen!

I liked tenting ok once everything was set up - but the set up and tear down really made it tough to enough the camping

Our first one was a 1990 sunline pop up we bought out of the horse trader for $500The thing leaked like a sieve. But a couple tarps and some duct tape solved that problem We used it for 2 seasons then bought a 2007 fleetwood pop up new


Its all fun and games then crasher gets a site beside you

Went camping as a kid with my parents in a 69' Apache pop up and a few times tenting. My wife and I camped for years in a tent but not very often. After two years of searching we purchased a new Summerland 2600 in 2010 and this year realizing we out grew it we purchased 13' Passport 3220.

Some of my fondest memories growing up are camping in the Apache pop up. We hope to create many memories for our children.

Awww- that is a shame that he hates it- My 16 yr old loves it, he sees it as a way to relax- and the first weekend we went- he literally went to sleep both nights at 930 pm and got up at 930 am- he has so much homework that he is normally doesn't get to go to bed until around 11 every night and then is up at 615- so he gets to sleep- which all 16 yr olds love LOL

Mine loves to sleep too especially while camping. We try to camp at places that he and I can go canoeing, fishing or some other activity. But now that he has a girl friend and mom and dad aren't cool anymore he would rather stay with a friend.

Maybe someday he will enjoy it again with us but for now it is hard letting go when he is not with us.

Well- I know being a teen at one point in life- LOL- it is totally normal too- to need to back off from your parents and make those connections with other teens- so- I am sure he will hit his late teens and come back to the camping thing and not care if mom and dad are cool or not:)
