Other Information
Our first trip away from home (KOA 3 miles from our house!) Levi Jackson State Park in KY in late April, 2015 Eggs A La Bourbon Rally 2016 in Bardstown, KY (My Old KY Home State Park)
As of 2022, we have camped 7 seasons with our 05 Casita 17 FD. We camped 64 nights in 2022 and 334 nights since 2016. We enjoy going to egg camper rallies, camping with family, and camping by ourselves. I retired 6/30/21. We will continue with our camping routine for 2023 and 2024. At the end of 2024, we may consider a new tow vehicle and, hopefully, the opportunity to expand our camping adventures, distances, and lengths of trips. We may consider another camper at some point, but we love our Casita and will continue to travel with it for at least the next two years.

Tow Vehicle
2009 Kia Borrego Limited V8 2WD
