With the end of summer upon us, take some time to kick back, reflect, and laugh at yourself and this crazy RV lifestyle we live.

Just like Jeff Foxworthy taught us how to recognize a redneck, I think we need to educate the public on how to spot an "RVer":

- If your SOLARAMA/Cocoon sunglasses can also be used as welding goggles, you might be a RVer.
- If someone says toad' and you DON'T think of an amphibian, you might be a RVer
- If you own a light-blue Haband jumpsuit with a belt, you might be a RVer
- If you know the gas and diesel tax rates of every state, you might be a RVer
- If you have not been on a airplane since Nixon was president, you might be a RVer
- If you drive 60 miles per hour when the speed limit is 75 miles per hour, you might be a RVer
- If a car parked in the RV slot at Cracker Barrel gives you road rage, you might be a RVer
- If you spent your anniversary night in a Wal-Mart parking lot, you might be a RVer
- If you and your spouse have matching patch vests, you might be a RVer
- If you have pee'd while moving 60 miles per hour, you might be a RVer
- If you have no problem dealing with sewage on a daily basis, you might be a RVer
- If you wave at EVERY car that passes, you might be a RVer
- If you live in the northern United States but haven't seen snow in 20 years, you might be a RVer
- If you own a dolly' but don't have a daughter, you might be a RVer
- If your windshield is bigger than most kitchen tables, you might be a RVer
- If you have never been to Hawaii because you can't drive there, you might be a RVer
- If you stop at highway rest areas but NEVER leave your vehicle, you might be a RVer
- If you vote via absentee ballot, you might be a RVer
- If you prefer the factory tour in Forest City, IA to the factory tour in Bowling Green, KY, you might be a RVer
- If you argue with your GPS about the best route to take, you might be a RVer
- If you know who Lawrence Welk is, you might be a RVer
- If you keep a Woodalls Campground book next to your home toilet, you might be a RVer
- If your couch moves at the speed limit, but your butt doesn't move from the couch, you might be a RVer
- If you drive something that has more square footage than a typical apartment, you might be a RVer
- If your friends are jealous of your lifestyle, you might be a RVer!

You need to be published - I love your writing!! You left out one thing though . . .

If you try to flush every toilet with your foot . . . you might be an RV'er.

That is a good one!

Everyone should feel free to make this a live list where they can add their own.

If you have more mirrors in your bedroom than in a cheap motel, you might be a RVer.
If you make Thanksgiving dinner in a microwave, you might be a RVer.
If you can give directions outside of your home state, you might be a RVer.

If it takes an extra wallet to hold all of your grocery store and fuel station frequent buyer cards, you may be an RVer.

If your idea of a good fuel stop is keeping it under $200, you may be an RVer.

If you have 3 TV's in less square footage than your old 2 car garage, you may be an RVer.

For all you 'jumpsuit' guys, there is quite a selection here:

Jumpsuits for sale

They even have one with an 'action stripe'. Sorry but my wife says 'action' will be lacking in this get up...

-If your "Beach House" looks identical to your "lake House"....
-If you jump at the chance to tell a passing Rv'er his antenna is still "Up"
-If you find yourself kicking "off" your shoes when you visit friends.
-If you can readily give the length, width & height of your vehicle at the drop of a hat
-If you unthinkingly call your husband "DH" or wife "DW"
-If you rubberneck down the highway every time a motorhome passes by...
-If you notice low-hanging tree branches over the roadway...
-If you keep a phillips screwdriver & pliers in more than 2 places in your home.
-If your wife hesitates (even for a second) before she turns "on" the microwave oven...
-If you can't resist adding to this rambling list...


&gt;&gt;&gt;You just might be a RV'er
