Dedication to all those campers...

I am always amazed at how nice our camper/neighbors are. We just moved to a better site in the same RV park. Both new neighbors came out to help us. After that we were invited over to a campfire tonight and had a wonderful time with new friends. Most of you probably already know or have had these experiences. But I thought it would be nice to dedicate a thread to experiences with wonderful camper - neighbors. Please share those experiences you've had.

About 25 years ago my DW and I were camping on the northern Ca coast. We met a younger couple that were travelling in a russian built copy of the BMW that the germans used in WW2. It started to rain very hard and all the couple had was a small pup tent. We invited them in our small 5r and made coffee and hot chocolat and had a splendid time talking about there travels on the motorbike with side car.

A few years ago I gave blood at a church in Milton, Wi. I got light-headed, and the nice lady put ice on the back of neck so I would not faint .About 2 weeks later we set out on a trip west. We were camped in Wyoming, when a trailer with Wisconsin plates parked next to us. I said "welcome cheeseheads", and the woman turned around, looked at me and said: hey aren't you the guy that almost fainted on me? Small world...What are the odds !!!

We're CG hosts, we could write a book a month about our guest's. We get invited to campsites for birthdays, anniversary's and just for anything. We are blessed to have landed this.
We could write the sequel to the movie "RV" every month as well! I like helping the newbs with water heaters, fridge, TV and the list goes on and on!

Has happened once, a gal came over after hearing, ""we just bought it" she asked If I slept well, I said like a lamb, she said then its a keeper. Zero the rest of weekend Has never happened to us, since. They were here for the summer from Texas.

Pretty sad state of affairs. I must say

I'm always looking for RV Parks / Camp grounds that have a better ratio of adults verses children, Don't get me wrong i love kids as much as the next guy. But I love parents even better when they can keep track of these kids as well. If we stayed some place and the kids are disrespectful and unruly we more than likely won't come back. We have been staying at this little camp ground up in Michigan and got lucky to be placed next to some full timers that were very nice, and very quiet as well as thoughtful of others. Makes for a nice stay knowing there's not going to be someones rug rats running through your camp site. I must be getting "old" and set in my ways, "LOL"

DW says no matter where we are I make RV friends....I'll talk to most anybody and what I like is that most folks in CG are friendly and want to talk, even if its only for a minute or two......Then in the next couple of days we move on and make more RV friends at the next CG....

I hope we're in the same campground with you sometime, We would talk your ear off about how good that Pace looks in your profile. Moving from campground to campground is like moving to a new neighborhood every few days, you're never know what you're going to get. In our experience, at 3 out of 5 parks, you're going to have a nice conversation with someone in the park.

A few years ago I had major surgery on my leg. It was to be done in a hospital about 55 miles away from the small RV park we were spending the winter in. The day before we had a knock on the door and there were two ladies standing there. They wanted to know what times we wanted them to walk our dogs for us so that my wife could stay with me until I was out of surgery. Not can we, but we will, and what time?

My surgery and recovery was the talk of the park. Whenever my wife walked the dogs, everyone would ask how I was doing. A few days after surgery, I was still bed bound; my wife answered a knock at the door. The next odor neighbor was there with a quart of homemade chicken soup for me!

Some readers may think: “How intrusive!” and yes, sometimes the neighbors are. Everyone knows everyone’s business. In a world where some people don’t even know the neighbors name, and the only contact between neighbors is an occasional wave, I take “intrusive.”

Being part of a true “community” is unique in my adult life. Very much like the small town of my youth, everyone knows the business of the other. The great thing is that everyone does care about, and for each other.

Want to meet folks in an RV park? Open the hood of your truck. Works every time.
