Hello from the mountains of WNC

My wife and I have loved camping since we first married. We spent of honeymoon at a Pigeon Forge campground in 1982. We started out tent camping with our 3 boys, then moved up to a used pop up that I rebuilt from the ground up. We then purchased a used 22' TT that served us well until our boys found out about girls and lost interest in camping. Last year we got the bug back and purchased a used 32' 2013 North Trail bunk house. We had Christmas at Callaway Gardens with all the Grand kids staying with us and the parents in near by cabins. We thought the bunk house would be great, but the kids all slept on the floor in sleeping bags, so they could talk all night. After the great experience of the 2015 camping season we decided that our love for camping was still strong. We wanted more creature comforts than the bunk house offered, so we traded it in on a new 2015 Starcraft Travel Star 27' 5th wheel. Our first brand new RV. I build custom furniture and my wife has a furniture consignment store. We are busy during the summer season, but we slip away to camp every chance we get. Happy RVing

Welcome from the flatter part of North Carolina. You live in one of the prettiest parts of our state.

Congratulations on the new rig. Our grandkids also love camping with us.
