What I learned from my in-laws about camping.

Discovering the fun of a weekend travel trailer with a big family.

My husband has been camping with his family his entire childhood and he loved it. When we met I was pretty clear that I was a room service girl. My experience with camping involved a lot of work on my part and a lot of baby sitting other people’s kids, cooking, cleaning and taking care of those who had too much booze or sun or both. It also involved tents, cooking over a fire pit, bug bites and sunburns.

So why am I writing about camping? My mother in law and father in law are RVers. They are retired and tour the country 9 months of the year. They assured me that rv camping is not the same as tent camping. They are so adorable when they show us pictures from their trip or how they organize the RV or tell us stories of things they have experienced together. They are great ambassadors for the RV lifestyle.

Which brings me back to making the decision to buy a travel trailer. I thought it would be a great idea to take my husband RVing for his birthday weekend. My girls thought he would really enjoy it so I began looking at RV rentals or used RVs. I may post about that process later but basically my husband was sure if I got a used camper or rented a small camper that my experience would not be great and we would not go again. Also, I am one of those women who doesn’t like to tell her family no too often, although I am sure they would disagree with that . So we bought 2016 Coachmen 246RKS.

Happy campers

My husband and I both have children from previous marriages. We are what you would call a blended family. We both work with computer. I like to craft and code programs. We have 5 children 15 to 27, an amazing daughter in law and my Mom makes 9. All totalled we have three dogs, three cats, three birds and two chinchillas. Our home is not what you call calm but we do our best and love every crazy minute of it.
