Congratulation! I fell your excitement. Get out in your area and learn some of the ins and out about your unit and afterward hit the road on longer trips. Makes me want to "hit the road" also.

New TT should arrive any day.  First trip is memorial weekend at Wild River State Park, Mn.  I'm like a little kid the night before Christmas.

We just returned from our 2nd trip of the year! We spent a week in Asheville savoring the local arts and craft scene. We even brought the warm weather back to Michigan with us. Our next is a rally next weekend with the FMCA knights of the Highway. Get busy and take a trip.

We just returned from our second trip of the year, a brief 4 day visit to the Tampa area to attend an RV rally at Lazydays.  Our next one will be May 28th when we will leave to spend the summer in Maine, in the Bar Harbor area. Like you, we are anxious to get on the road again and already have the coach pretty much packed except for last minute stuff.

Our first trip of the year was in Jan. to Quartzsite, Ariz. for the big RV rally.  We pretty much camp year around.

I can relate to your excitement though....totally understandable.  Congratulations on the new trailer.  Look forward to your report of your first trip.

We're off to Pine Valley, UT on Memorial Day Weekend as a shakedown cruise for our first BIG adventure beginning June 13, 2013 (hmm, I just noted the numbers on the dates...good thing I'm not superstitious).

Our first BIG adventure in our new motor home will take us to South Lake Tahoe, California's Gold Country (Coloma, CA), Oregon's Southern Coast and the Rogue River area, then to Roseburg to see family and friends for a few days, and back home...18 days total. This will be our first extended vacation in our married lives...being the workaholic I was during my career in construction, I failed miserably in the vacation department...

We just got back home from a 4 day outing to a state park only 50 miles from home. It was our shakedown cruise. All systems were functioning as they should!

We leave the first of June for 2 months, first the Black Hills, then to Gillette, WY for a Beaver Ambassador Club Rally at the same site as the FMCA 88th annual Family Reunion (BAC is volunteering as security there). Then to Cody, WY for a base to explore the eastern half of Yellowstone, then to W Yellowstone, MT for a base to explore the western half of Yellowstone, then to Victor, ID for a base to explore the Grand Tetons, then to Brigham City, UT for a base to explore Salt Lake City, and to see the Promitory Point (I'm a railfan). From there back to Cheyenne, WY to take in a few days of Cheyenne Frontier Days. We have tickets to the rodeo and bullriding. This will be our longest trip, time-wise, to date. Home by the end of July!

 Our first trip was to Quartzite with the forum group. Then we made it up to Death Valley Ca. over to Las Vegas. Worked our way down to Yuma for the dirt track Nationals then on to Fort Davis  and back to our home area.
   We are on our second trip of the new year. We started From Lake Conroe Tx. on to Arrowhead State Park for 2 Nights. Then to Caprock Canyon for 3 nights and some geocaching. We then went to Palo Duro Canyon for 5 nights. We are now on our 3rd day in Santa Fe NM. After we see everything we can we will head to Albuquerque to meet up with the Dodds. Then on to Moab to meet up with the forum group May 12-19th for some off roading. From there on to Alsaka. Don't have any plans or reservations will know when we get there. Life is good!

Our first trip was to Tucson in January to visit with friends from Texas. Our summer plan "was" to begin in late April heading to Pella, IA and Holland, MI for their Tulip Festivals. This plan was thwarted by doctors who diagnosed prostate cancer. Now, Our summer travels will begin in early June after the 9-week radiation schedule.

We plan to visit Elkhart, IN and the Cherry Festival in Traverse City, MI among other locations in the midwest - after that, a slow trip through Kentucky on the way to Dallas and a visit to the new George W. Bush library. (Anything to beat the desert summer heat of Phoenix, AZ)   ;)

If you are already in Traverse City, a short trip to Sault Ste. Marie would be fun.

There is a small campground on the St. Mary's River. Very peaceful and cool in the summer.

Would that be Aune-Osborn Campground? RV Park Reviews http://rvparkreviews.com/park_map.php?cgid=1445gives it a good rating.

Please be careful about listing your trips before you go on here or any social media outlet. The less than savory element of our society uses these outlets to find targets.

VERY good advice; especially for those that divulge all their info; Real Names, Home Location, Long Trips, blogs with location details,  vacant house info, etc.....
That being said, our first of the year will be about 20 miles from the house over Memorial Day mudding the ATV's in my sig---Breaking in the DW's new Rhino!!

Sibbald is a nice park. Dogs are allowed at the far end of the beach. If you are near that area and like stock car racing try Sunset Speedway in Innisfil. They allow free camping behind the track and have very exciting racing

Our first trip for this year was in February to SC, GA, and FL, returning to Upstate NY at the end of March for medical appointments. We would have gone sooner, but we had to wait for the Dr.'s clearance to travel after the DW's last round of radiation treatments. We'll be off again in a week or so, stopping in NJ first to see friends, and then on to wherever we decide when the time comes. We haven't been to SD in quite awhile, so we might head in that direction.

Heading out next weekend for a shakedown trip right after we take delivery of the camper. It has not come in yet, so timing is going to be tight.

Going to a local/familiar State Park (30 minutes from home).

Excited doesn't cover it. I am so ready to turn this page. So happy to be getting back into the woods with the whole family.

Since we are from Florida, we have taken the coach out on 3 or 4 short trips since January 1.  We left on our 6 month "find cool weather" trip a week ago and are presently in the Smokie Mountains near Franklin, NC.
