Ram has to take them out that was as their technology and stats has poor Ram back in the dust. They do make fantastic grocery getters for a soccor mom though.

That's funny. I play NA flute. Once I was sitting in a campground in Germany, outside the caravan, playing my flute. I got some serious weird looks...you would think these people had never heard a flute before.

I'm more taken back by the trailers/RVs stacked side-by-side.........it looks like a parking lot........not my idea of a campground.

Don't have a picture but this reminds me of rig I see a lot. They have a slide in truck camper mounted on flat bed trailer long enough to have storage under what would normally be over cab bunk and space at rear for patio area. If I see this year will take picture and try to post.

Here's my funny story. This happened some time ago and it still cracks me up.
We had arrived at our campground for some needed relaxing time when another pop-up camper family pulled into next to us (no problem) they must have had four kids pile out of their camper (again no problem). So as campers usually do mom and dad got to setting up and the kids hurried around waiting for the go play command.
Mom and dad did a great job with setting things up and finally give the kids the command to go play so they could have a little quite time. After the kids took off mom and dad disappeared into the camper, well in their haste they had forgotten to put down the legs on the back of the camper. This would have been their side of the camper. I can only assume things where going splendidly because of what happened next.
We where all sitting by the fire having a beer when all of the sudden the pop up tips up on the back side and dad comes popping out from the canvas (naked of course) and the camper slams back down to the ground. Again being they must have experience with kids intruding they had locked the camper door. Poor old dad couldn't get that door open fast enough.
There was no way all of us could not laugh because it was just funny, we did not heckle or applaud just laughed a bit.
It must have been to much for them because shortly after things calmed down mom went and got the kids, dad packed the camper and off they went. Felt bad for them that they felt the need to depart, we know where them four kids came from after all.

Itís not a campground, itís an RV park. The reason it looks so crowded is every site has a snowbird in it. No one in this park is here to camp, they come here for the warm weather, the beach, and the camaraderie of other RVers . While the sites are close together, itís not nearly as bad as it looks. Hereís a picture of one of the RV sites after the snowbirds began departing for their northern homes. You can get a better idea of the spacing if you look at the RVs in the background of this picture.

Now... if you had broken out a tuba or accordion, all would have been good and the beer would have flowed freely.

I would have taken a bow, put the legs down, then gotten back into the camper to finish what I started. It's the great outdoors, is it not?
