Good morning/evening all!

Just took delivery of a new 23RS a few weeks ago! It is SO neat!! Can't wait to get the wife and kids packed up next week-end and go camping!

Of course we have many questions...How do I do this? What makes that work? Blah blah but I'm sure the first trip will answer many of those and generate some more.

Looking forward to reading this board and meeting folks.

Our general info:

Located in Wichita, KS

I'm close to 40, my lovely wife is close to 30

I'm retired from the Air Force working at an aircraft manufacuter

My wife is an 8 yr veteran of the Air Force, homemaker, mother, daycare guru and master of a million other tasks for which she is underpaid but not under valued...and yes I wrote that myself guys without her making me!! Hahaha

Two small children 2 and 4 and a big German Shepard that hasn't yet figured out she is not a human.

We bought our 23 RS out of state after growing weary of a pushy dealer


Looking forward to mostly week-end jaunts and that sort of short term camping.

Again, nice to be here... Oh by the way, the username comes from a little town in South Carolina called...You guessed it, Travelers Rest...GO DEVILDOGS!!

Hey Travelers,

Welcome to the forum. Where are you going to camp in Kansas? Looking at www.reserveamerica.com I see most sites are North and West of you. Let me know if you decide to "travel west" and camp in Colorado.

Welcome to OUTBACKERS Traveler!

I see we have quite a bit in common already:


I live in the Mid West.

I work for the DOD...Air Force branch.

I own an OUTBACK: (25RS S)

I'm close to 40. REALLY CLOSE!

My wife is a DAYCARE GURU.

I have 2 children.

I have a big German Shepherd Dog...who is laying at my feet as I type.

WOW! Maybe we are long lost twins!

Hmmmm wouldn't be at Ellsworth or Minot would ya? If you're near Minot we may cross paths sometime! I visit there from time to time and the next time, it'll be in the camper!

Is 41 really close to 40 or is it really REALLY close???

We are also looking forward to our first outing. We will spend a little time at Wellington Lake to get everyting checked out befroe we go on our big 2 week trip in July.

Ahhhh yes, GFAFB, I spent many years afraid I would get orders there on B-52's. That was when I was young and heard many storys about how things were there in the early eighties...

I've grown up since then sunny I'm sure that, notwithstanding the weather, it is a beautiful place.

Perhaps one day we can take the trailer and go far...or is it fargo? Hahaha

Thanks for the greetings!

Steve

Hey, Kansans!

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new Outbacks!


We have lots in common. I, too, have an Outback; I've been 40 once, I know what kids are, and I have driven the treeless plain from El Dorado to Emporia many times.

Actually, my brother lives in Wichita and my wife's family are in Leawood and Kansas City and we go through there every couple of years.

Enjoy your new trailers!

Mark
