Had my rig for 2 years but still learning everyday. Obviously the 45 minute orientation from dealer was lacking a little.

I learn something every trip, some of it I am sure I knew at some point in time... Been camping and RV'ing for over 35 years.

Wife & I grew up RVing with our folks. Our kids have done the same with us. Wife & I have been RVing sense 1985. My folks bought their first RV in 1960, so I go back 55 years for my first RV trip.

Same here. My dad was an Avid fisherman starting at age 5 we were tent camping in the high sierra that was in the 50's graduated to a dreamer pickup camper around 59 or 60 and then to a bumper pull Terry trailer. Hopefully picture display of a dreamer roughly the same vintage on a ford pick. My dads was a 1961 1/2 ton 3pd on the column. It had a full race Iskenderian cam shift with eddlebrock intake manifold with 3 2 barrel carbeurators and Hedman headers. Back in the day.

This what it looked like. Dad had a 59 Chevy Impala to tow it with.
Being the oldest I got to sleep in the top overhang bed.

Very nice. I can remember my younger brother and I went over Tioga pass riding in the cab over bed. At each bend of the road it appeared as though we were going over the edge. To think my parents would have been arrested and jailed for child endangerment now. We had great times!

My parents weren't the outdoors type. I joined the Boy Scouts when I was 11 and have been outdoors every since. Hell I can't even work in an office for two days in a row. A few years back my company decided I should be a project manager, that lasted less than a month, they told me to take my laptop and get my ass back out in the field. Good thing about them is that they pay you based more on longevity and performance rather than job title.

I can remember camping in canvas tents that you didn't touch when it was raining. About the same time as I joined BSA there was a guy that owned the service station on the corner in our neighborhood, he would load a up a few of us neighborhood hellions and take us out camping for a weekend at the local lake. He had a pickup camper and a tent trailer, used to haul 4 or 5 of us about once a month, grand times.

I started my two kids camping when they were 5 and 6, we tried to go once a month. Kept that up until they went off to college. My daughter lives in a cabin in the MA woods and my son lives in Boston. Both still love the outdoors. I currently live on 40 acres surrounded by suburgatory, but they will have to pay me a lot to move.
