About Us
  1. Our first camping trip. This was at East Harbor State Park. Although, we loved the tent. The rainy days ahead made us need a little more...
    Oh my, how young. Can't believe they are 2014/2015 high school graduates now

    This is Heidi and I's last trip using the tent..
    This is at Put-in-Bay South Bass Island State Park.

  2. Time for a change!
    So, we talked it over and decided to buy a pop-up and sell the tent. so the tent that served us well was put on Craigslist and I started my search.

  3. Where to begin...      I guess from the beginning would be best..

    I lived in a lot of different places starting in the sunny state of Florida. After moving around Florida quite a bit from one coast to the other and then back again, my family moved north to the great state of Ohio. Settling down to just one area took about 18 years then I joined the Army. Because of all the moving around, I found that staying in one place was a little difficult. But I have now been in NE Ohio for quite a few years now.
     Now on the other hand, Heidi has lived in one small geographical area her entire life. So has her family. Her and I both enjoy traveling and venturing to other areas of this state and the Eastern US. We are soon to be empty nesters and we're working our way up to going full time eventually. Let me show you how we got started camping and where that has taken us so far.
  4. Finally,We Bought A Travel Trailer .. I need to fix what ?

    The Roof..
    Well that was a first. Learned a lot about that. Heidi always steps up her game during our repairs. She is awesome.

    When working with camper leaks learn and live this mantra.  "Where the water goes, The water GROWS" 

    We bought the Terry Resort in the late summer and stored it under a tarp all winter.  Springtime broke out and so did the tools. 

    The day we brought it home.

    Watch the video below for some extensive roof repairs

  5. 6 MONTHS TO REFURBISH AND WE ONLY USED IT TWICE

                             Here we are during our second AND last camping excursion with the Starcraft.  
     
     You read correctly we only camped in this pop-up 2 times.
     
    This was an investment purchase to get us back on track. You'll notice a pattern of buying cheap, fixin' up and selling refurbished at a fair price. We are not getting rich, just getting on.
  6. Got a great deal.    Now we are camping on wheels!

     If you are not familiar with these campers you should research them a bit they were ahead of their time and are still COOL.
      At this point, we realized we liked having a camper but was not happy with all the loading and unloading of the supplies from the back of the truck. So, we took this pic and on Craigslist the Apache Ramada went.

  7. What happened to all the Money
    We had some money saved up from the Apache sale BUT,  life happened and we used the funds for automotive repairs, school, and home repairs etc ....., you know "Life".

     After a couple years of working on the truck upgrading and repairing it was finally ready to driven anywhere in the country.
    BAM !!!!!!! Lady ran a stop sign... She totaled her 08 Durango into the side of my poor truck. Well after finding out the insurance company wasn't impressed with how much work I had into the truck,( I have a folder literally 3 inches thick of receipts), I negotiated the best deal I could and bought a welder and started putting it back together again.  Now it's starting to show it's age and we are finally outgrowing the mainly stock little V8.
  8. What another Pop-UP!
      So, spring came along and we found another "fixer-upper".
       Boy, is that an understatement!

    Now don't look at this pic and expect to see what I'm talking about needing work, because this is the after photo.
