We are fellow campers as well. We are on our third summer with our camper trailer and it is truly one of the best things we’ve purchased! We haven’t ventured very far from Ohio yet but do love camping in MI. National parks are on our list as the kids get older, and we try to keep up with my military brother in law and their family as they have been to over 20!
I too am a middle school teacher (only going into my second year) so I may have lots of questions as I tackle some new subject matter this year but I’m really loving the age, since my own children haven’t hit that mark yet!
