Last year while camping at Conconully State Park the A/C fan stopped working on my XTerra. I was buried under the dash trying to figure it out when a fellow camper strolled by to help. Turns out he is an auto tech. and figured out what was wrong and got our A/C fan working again.
This past summer while spending 2 weeks at South Beach State Park a couple pulled in beside us with a fairly well set up fishing rig. One one trip back from the bay, the guy came over and asked if we liked crab. He then proceeded to go back to his boat and bring over two huge live crab for us. When I mentioned that we didn't have a pot large enough to cook them, he went back and returned with a pot too.
How can you beat that? As someone else mentioned here on this forum, how many friends have you made wandering the halls of a hotel? If it weren't for camping or riding the motorbikes we probably wouldn't have any friends...Ha!
Camping mostly close to home in Western NY I have met plenty of our neighbors to our north. Me and DW received our Prince Edward Islands guide in the mail today. Next July we plan on doing a 2 week Canadian tour through Ottawa to Prince Edwards Is. I cannot wait for winter to be over!!
And I love my Labattes Blue!
