[QUOTE=Grumpytrkr;107478]Where in Brown County, Indiana did you stay? QUOTE]

We stayed at Brown County State Park and loved it. it is a beautiful campground and we were able to mountain bike the 25 miles of trails in the park right from the campsite.

My only complaint is that the town of Nashville seems to roll up the sidewalks at 6pm. :-)

I have not tried that park yet, but have heard good things about it. If all goes well, summer of 2013 will find us camping at least a couple of days at Tahquemenon State Park and the Porcupine Mountains State Park. If everything doesn't go as planned, we'll hit several state parks in the lower peninsula. Otsego and one of the Higgins Lake State Parks, Silver Lake State Park, and Hoffmaster State Park are all on the list, as well as some close to home parks such as Brighton, Pinckney, Seven Lakes, etc. We'll see; it's tough to make plans with our busy schedules. Happy Camping!!

We enjoyed our first year with our 2012 32bhds. We got out as much as possible. I even took it out myself when my hubby couldn't get away. Very easy to drive.
April ~ Hocking Hills Ohio State Park
May ~ Brookville Indiana State Park
June ~ East Harbor Ohio State Park and Franklin County Indiana Fairgrounds
July ~ Butler County Ohio Fair (My boys are in 4H)
August ~ Sleeping Bear Dunes Nat'l Park, Platte River Campground, and Mears State Park (Lake Michigan side)
September ~ Cowan Lake Ohio State Park and Franklin County Indiana Fairgrounds (Tractor show)
October ~ Hueston Woods Ohio State Park and Whitewater Memorial State Park Indiana and Liberty Indiana on our family farm
10 trips and 44 nights. We stayed relatively close to home and are planning a week in Gatlinburg in April and another long trip to Mackinac and Sault Ste. Marie August 2013. I'm sure we will add on as we go.

I recommend South Higgins over North Higgins. The sites are bigger and South actually has some full hook-up sites. Hoffmaster is nice too but I seem to recall the walk to the beach was very long.

Thanks for the tips, Snake. Everything that we've seen on the west side of Michigan is nice, even Ludington despite the raccoon problem. I have been looking forward to a trip to Higgins Lake; sad to say, but being a Michigan resident for 39 years, I've never been there.

We went to Charleston four days for our first trip in April. Then went on weekend trips to Myakka & Hillsboro River state parks. In the summer, we went north and spent two months on Cape Cod. We are now back home in FL for the winter and thinking of what to do next year.

We picked up our new TT in July but since we had used up a lot of our vacation time going to Alaska (cruise and land tour) we didn't have a lot of time to camp. We made one local four day trip to Wildwood State Park and a five day trip to Lancaster, PA. Next year we start the season with a trip to Disney's Ft. Wildness Campground in Florida with stops in Virginia Beach and Savanna, GA. Can't wait to take the cover off and get going .

We think it was the fuel pump. The fuel rails were dumping hot fuel back into the tank causing the fuel pump to overheat. We had to stop every 5, 20, 30, mi. On a fresh tank we could get more distance. Sold the truck to my best friends (actually they were with us) son in law he hasn't had a problem. By the way I told the wife the trip couldn't get worse it did! We got caught in a hail storm damaged the front of the travel trailer as well. We had trouble with our new Coleman trailer on a trip but that's a whole nuther story.
