New Dude in Oklahoma, Headed to Alaska
I'm brand spankin' new to the whole camper thing. My parents had a pop-up while I was growing up and I have a ton of great memories from when we were out in it. I'm active duty now and have tried my best to keep my three boys exposed to the outdoors. We lived in Oklahoma for a while but didn't camp then. We moved to northern Ontario Canada for three years and were avid tent campers (yes, even in the cold rain!). We knew that tent camping probably wouldn't last though. Now we're back in Oklahoma and trying to camp in a tent when it's 90 degrees at night and all the best camp sites are full of spider, snakes, and scorpions is something we tried once and will never again. We're bound for three years in Alaska now and decided it was time to up our game. We got a 28 ft White Hawk and took it out for a 'maiden voyage' over the long weekend. Not everything worked, but we have a few more weeks to iron out the problems before we get on the road for 4,000 miles. I'll be picking y'all's brains soon for recommended solutions to the problems we ran into. Can't wait!
