Just wanted to pass along a quick story/anecdote from a recent trip. I'm very new to this after spending much of my life with a backpack/tent for my camping experience. Only have owned our trailer for a month.
We went to an RV park for the weekend last week for the first time, and chose to come in on a Friday night. Dusk comes early these days and by the time we arrived it was pitch black. We were having a hard enough time finding our way around a dark campground and had to make several attempts at approaching our pull through site from the correct direction. I felt like an @$$ rolling around for 20 minutes, especially with the seasonal sites directly on the other side of the path from my short term.
A friendly guy by the name of Doug came out with a flashlight and jumped in the passenger seat to show me how to get into the site, helped me clear a tree on the site, and invited me over for coffee the next morning and a BBQ that evening. Met a bunch of really, really nice people who were just friendly for no other reason than the fact that we were willing to chat and hang out. I can really see now why people get into this and it almost seems like a brother/sisterhood among those who RV. Also had plenty of other visits with some short-term campers in neighboring sites.
So this is a tribute and a thank you to all of you who show hospitality and kindness to those of us who might not know what the heck we're doing. Thanks!
