Red face Hello form Ottawa, Canada

Hi
Just a short introduction. We are a family of 6. Four kids ages 12 to 5. We have been camping now for 2 years and loving it. We started out with a 1974 tent trailler and then quickly decided to upgrade to a new tent trailler. We now wish for a bigger trailler!

We are thinking of planning a camping trip out East this summer!

Thanks,
Tammy

Tammy! Sounds like you have your hands full, 4 kids

Its a never ending "want" with camping. We have a 19 foot and thought we would be happy for a while, but we only used it 2 years and are ready for a bigger one.

Default Welcome Tammy!

I was so glad to hear about a new family in Canada. I am the mother of 5 daughters. I have 4 at home ages 16 - 7 years old. So we have so much in common. I grew up in MN about 1 hour south of International Falls. My Dad took us camping often in Minnesota at all those gorgeous lakes. You came to a great site that's a close knit family from all over the US and Canada. Hope you enjoy yourself.

Default HI!

Hi Tammy, how are you? With 4 youngins, I would say you need something bigger than a tent trailer. Are you looking to get a new one, or just wishing to get a new one?

Default Hello Again Tammy!

I wanted to say "Hello" again Tammy! I was wondering what part of the East you were planning on visiting? I guess I am too far east for you. We are in Virginia on the east coast, so I would love if you came for a visit. I've got plenty of room for everyone. They have beautiful places to camp near us too. There are a few differences like we have the ocean, and less rocks.

Default A Tribe of 6

I have 6 in our family too. I am the mother of 5 daughters. Four are at home now. The secret to it is just stay together. We go to stores, malls, and schools. I always keep them together getting groceries. After doing it for a while - they get good at it. They seems to work well together.

You are all so nice.....Thanks for the welcomes!
Life is so busy, I have forgotten to check back here. Sorry I am late with my reply!
We have decided to stay with the tent trailer for one more year.
We will be heading out East(Canada).Does anyone have suggestions on where to camp. New Brunswick is our destination!
