My First Camper Camping Experience
Recently I ventured into my first major joint purchase with my significant other. We settled on a 2017 Wolf Pup which is just under 23' and has one slide out, figuring it would be more than enough for 2 people and ocassionally Rocco the Min-Pin.
I've done a decent amount of camping, mostly at music festivals, and always in a tent. For the low payment(they let you spread them out to 10+ years) I should have bought one years ago. All of those humid and hot July days and nights tenting it and fighting to keep an air mattress inflated are gone. Don't get me wrong, I have great memories of those festivals, they would just be nicer if AC had been an option. Of course the year I get a camper is the year my schedule most likely won't allow for music festivities. A couple of weekend days here and there though at a campground is for sure doable.
For our first trip out we settled on The Sherwood Forest Campground in Gilbert, MN. We have stayed there before tenting it while other friends enjoyed their campers and still had a great time. Being it was still early in the season I was able to book pretty much their prime spot with a great view of Lake Ore-Be-Gone and full hookups too!
Other than the puppy getting used to the new space, a few things the camper dealer failed to tell me, and my forgetting a part that makes my new grill work, we had a great time. Apparently I'm not too bad at campfire cooking, plus The Whistling Bird is within walking distance so we didn't starve.
We can't wait for the next weekend camping getaway, even if it's not a music festival. Tent or camper, where do you like to go?
