Happy Thanksgiving everyone! As RVers, we have much for which to be thankful. I'm sure that "camping" away from home on this and other holidays gives us some unique perspectives. I thought it would be interesting to hear from my fellow FR3 owners (or others) on some of the challenges created by living in a coach on this and other holidays.

We're camped in Nashville for Thanksgiving, where the temperature last night was 11 degrees, so keeping warm is our biggest concern right now. But it is a minor inconvenience, and we are, indeed, fortunate and blessed.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Stay warm Capt. Mike! I'll be staying in Nashville Saturday night, so I hope it's warmer then.

I second that sentiment - Happy Thanksgiving to all fellow FRF members and your families!

Having the privilege to be able to camp is something I am truly thankful for. For many of us the RV provides a second home, and for all you full timers, the RV allows you the freedom to have a home in so many various areas. Everyone should have the opportunity to camp this way at least once!

Enjoy your meals, families, and football today (and all weekend), and above all be safe on the roads!

Good idea for a thread, spicyrv.

I was thinking about the very topic of thankfulness on our last trip. We recently bought a new Georgetown and as with any new coach, there have been various things that need attention. Some minor, a few not so minor. One of the not-so-minor issues was a situation with a failed slide motor, requiring us a stay in St. Augustine FL for several days there were not part of our itinerary. But you know, while it wasn't in our plan, we ended up having a wonderful time, touring the area and eating at some restaurants we never would have otherwise discovered. Also, as I was sitting at the RV stewing one morning about our "problems", I thought to myself - Wait a minute. How fortunate are we to have gotten to a place in our life where we could purchase a new RV, and then have the time to go enjoy it. What a "problem" to have...a "problem" with our new RV. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm ready to get our issues solved on the new coach, but putting it all in perspective, we have a bunch to be thankful for, and we are!

Some of my best memories as a child where logged in the motorhome that my parents took vacations in, and I'm fortunate to do the same now. What a blessing!

Now, as for Nashville - yes it's cold here! 11 degrees? Well, my thermometer and the NWS said 18 last night, but I guess anything in the teens or below is "cold". We were at Fort Wilderness at Disney. Now our RV it shivering in the driveway with us!.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. And if any of you ever need some help while in Nashville, we live just across the river from where all the campgrounds are, so give us a shout.
