Grammy and Bampa hit the road this weekend!

I am Julie and my husband is Jim. We are not camping novices (my dad had an RV dealership for 30 years and we have camped in everything from tents to huge coaches with our families.) However, we just bought our OWN TT for the first time, a Jayco Eagle 306RKDS, and are giddy like little children to take it for a whirl this weekend. Although we like to do Disney and take cruises, we also have three kids in different states and the grands live 700 miles away. The good thing is there is a state park just a few miles from them, so this is going to be our version of a second home. I have also been a lead moderator on one of the largest message board systems out there, so have a great affinity for the way these things work. I love that with technology people with similar interests can find new friends.

Congratulations Julie and Jim and welcome to the JOF. All are welcome here... even moderators.

I see, too, you are from MI. We lived there for many years. Lots of friends and family still there, but we're fortunate that our grandkids are close here in AZ.

We're Disney fans, too, but last fall was fantastic and our first time with our TT at 'the Fort.' Looking forward to our next time there the 2018 Food & Wine.
