That video was hilarious!! We loved it!! Please ALL.. No disrespect was inferred or meant by my question. It came about because some of our friends cannot believe that DW has an RV!! We are planning a winter trip to Tucson, AZ. Will be staying at Lazydays RV. Hope to meet up. Thanks for the chuckle!

My wife is also Jewish, we've been RVing in one form or another for 35 years. Now that we're retired and in an RV park year around we have met many other Jewish families, many times identified by special holiday decorations displayed in/on their rig or site.

Historically it has been rare to see black families in the campground, but happily that is changing too. We've welcomed a number of non-Caucasian families to our "home" park in South Carolina and we have many families of color here in our Florida park.

I, for one, find it outstanding and encouraging to see families of all ethnic backgrounds enjoying the RV lifestyle. It is just one of the common interests that proves we're all more alike than not.

Go in peace....

I have camped in thousand trails mostly and on two occasions we met black campers there. One happened to be a retired Army Lt. Colonel. I also post on an Army web site, and have spoken to about a half dozen more.

On the Road Again, With Clarence and Ginny - Law Blog - WSJ

Hey !! We parked our Prevost right beside Clarence and Ginny a few years back. I never asked what he did for a living, and he did not ask me either. After sitting around a while and chatting, it dawned on me that he is "that" Clarence of the Supreme Court. I felt like a fool for not recognizing him immediately, but when you see someone famous and not in the their normal surroundings, it really is unexpected.

My guess is that about 10% of the people in my various rally meets are Jewish.

I must tell about about one of the greatest story's about "Getting along with others" I have witnessed.

back in 1987 I used to work installing satellite dishes(the old big ones). This was back in the day when you could put a "chip" in the decoders and get more channels. So we had to go to customers houses every 3 months of so.
The owner of the Dish store that sold them a Jewish man named Dave.
one of his customers was a Christian man. (I can't remember his name)
Both cussed like sailors. Every time time we came back from this customers home he had a give Dave a message, and every time we went to the customers home we had a message for him.
They usually started with "Tell that Jew, I said Merry Christmas" Then Dave would tell us to tell him "Have a Happy Hanukkah" .......It went back a and forth all in good fun.

Same here, we met them at a campground in Bar Harbor one summer, several families around a campfire. Also did not recognize them until several weeks later they were both interviewed on TV. Very personable..

Funny coincidence that right under the "Jews who RV" topic in "Recent Discussions" was "Where is the bacon" LOL

I guess this was the question of the week! Gee has it really come down to asking? I understand your reasoning but this is not 1943.
