And sometimes you see something really beautiful. We were next to this trailer several years ago in Port Aransas, TX.

Well let's see, we saw a pet pig & one of those jet pack water things. Pig was in Guntersville Al at Little Mtn Marina & the jet pack, which was pretty cool, was while kayaking on Percy priest lake from Nashville Shores Rv park in TN.

Amazingly, Iíve seen pet pigs twice now. One little guy and once a big huge fat pig. To this day, I still canít fathom how they traveled with it.

You can just make out the water line to it.

It has a hard-plumbed PVC pipe to the campsiteís sewer outlet that goes under the rig.

I've seen a pig but saw 3 Saint Bernards in 1 RV. Don't know how they managed that seems it would be hard to move around.

Just this past September in Pigeon Forge, we had someone camping in a smaller tt at river plantation, that had a whopper of a pig with them, the woman even bragged about it sleeping in bed with her. Got to make you wonder what people are thinking.

I never saw what camper these people were in (I don't think the Jay Feather in the background was theirs) but here's the pig:

Nope!

But, can I shock you a little more? I'm pretty positive that's Ziggy the Traveling Pig:

Yeah, I think you are right. I remember that they had a bunch of posters around the campsite with pictures of the pig in costumes and such. I can't handle all that.

Lmao...they want donations and are vegans. No bacon there. Hubby tells a story of how they had a pig as kids and their dad let it go to the drive in with them.
