Hi! I'm Julia in Albuquerque. I have a 2007 17' SD that's been sitting in my driveway for 2 years. I will tow with a Toyota Tacoma. I used it once for 4 days with my kids when I got it, and then changes at work and home made travel difficult. Getting ready for my 2nd trip in June, and hopefully many more. I was going to be a solo woman (with my pittie, Shooki), but fell in love, so now I've got a buddy to join me for some of my trips. My young adult children seem uninterested to go camping with mom. Six years ago, after we got our dog, I rented a class C (19' cruise america) RV and we made a week long trip to the "Dog Beaches of Southern California". It was fabulous and we've made a few trips to the beach over the years with the rented Class C. I hated having to stow and secure everything each time we wanted to travel from the campground, so I opted for a trailer. I have a lot to learn, and feel overwhelmed again, but pretty excited. I am either retired or in between gigs. I haven't decided yet. Oh, and the username comes from my hobby. I do beadwork with tiny glass beads that I stitch together.
PS - We already cracked our door on the first trip. Live and Learn. :-)
