    Hey everyone! I'm Ryan, live in Ontario, Canada! Been looking through the boards for quite a while now and decided to join up. We currently have a park model trailer just outside Kincardine, just off Lake Huron and typically have an 8 month season there (March opening, late November closing). It's my happy place, one might say I am not your ordinary 24 year old (still at home and love going up with my parents.) I'm not a current tent trailer owner, although I see myself purchasing one in the next year or two to do some travelling, kayaking and fishing (we used to have one when I was a kid until my parents purchased our park model in 2000.) Been an avid camper my whole life, basically grew up at the campground and my first time in our old tent trailer I was only 2 weeks old! Dad recalls having to make formula over the Coleman stove!

    Look forward to reading up on the rest of the board and meeting you all. For now, enjoy this picture of our vintage Ford Aerostar and our awesome StarCraft PUP. Miss that thing!

    Welcome to the Portal from South Carolina. I've spent some time in an old Aerostar. We enjoyed that vehicle.

    Welcome from Georgia! My aunt & uncle had something like your park model trailer on a lake in Michigan for a couple years. I got to go up there and hang out with my cousin a few times.

    Good luck finding the right popup for you and making some new adventures!

    Welcome to the Portal from the Kitchener-Waterloo area. Great to have you join up. I know the Kincardine area extremely well, beautiful country there.

    It's nice having a park model, the longer seasons for sure is a big positive! Lake Michigan is gorgeous!

    Elmira, eh?! I know that area quite well..we take Hwy 86 all the way up from Guelph to Lucknow! We are at Fisherman's Cove. As you said, nice area! Nice to meet you as well!

    Ah yes, Fisherman's Cove, right at Black Horse Golf Course. The big town of Lucknow, I've been working there for the past 5 years. I just ran out of work there about 2 months ago and don't go any more. I loved it up there.

    Haha too funny, such a small world. Do you travel from Elmira daily then? You definitely know about the ice cream at Holyrood General store then!

    Well, sadly I don't go up anymore. I would travel from my place, over to my old boss's farm near Stratford. From there I would go to St. Helens, which is only 5 mins from Lucknow. I would then travel back and forth from St. Helens to various farms and cottages in the area. I went basically from Goderich up to North Bruce, which is north of Tiverton a ways. On the east boundary, I would go from Hanover to Holland Center and up to Owen Sound. So if you were to draw a line making an area that those towns border, thats where I was. I never went for ice cream in Holyrood, but always saw lots of Amish guys parked there.
