We are on the way home from Florida and stopped at a KOA south of Savannah,Ga. for the night.I noticed the lady in the rv next to us looked really familiar.I went out to talk to her and ask what campgrounds they had stayed at as they were on their way home from Florida also.We didn't stay at any of the same campgrounds or even near the same areas.When she said they were from Lancaster,Pa.it all came together.She was our tour guide when we were at the National rally in Pa.We spent quite a bit of time with her,touring the Amish home,pretzle and candy factory as well as that infamous long walking tour of Philadelphia. She and her husband had been down at the Gulf still doing repair work from Katrina and had gone to Fl.a few days before heading home.Unfortunately she doesn't care much for rving! So yes,its a small world!

While in a Pittsburg KOA a couple of years ago a gentleman kept walking back and forth in front of our fiver when he came up to me and said i look familiar. Well, while talking, we drifted back to Florida in 1980, and we had worked together as firefighter and i was a paramedic. For sure a small world.

2nd senario
Parked in the Oasis Park in Las Vegas last year a Tiffin Phaeton pulled in and for a few days we saw no one exit the rig. Finally, the gentleman came out and we talked for awhile only to find out we worked as young teenagers at the Jersey shore in the 50s. Absolutely a small world.

When I was in the Army I ran into a guy in Germany I had grown up with. Than while stationed in Hawaii I ran into a girl I knew in High school, and lastly while stationed in California I ran into another guy I had known in High School. I grew up in Utah so all of these were over 1500 miles from my home.

While living in Saudi Arabia back in the early 80's we were on vacation in Hong Kong. We were touring Victoria Peak and we heard someone calling out our middle daughters name. Turned out o be a boy she went to school with in Jupiter, Fla. Yes, it is a very small world.

Mine is a bummer! Last fall I attended a weeklong conference in San Antonio (I live in WA State). A week after I got home I was talking on the phone to my brother who lives in ND and found out he was in San Antonio at the same time and stayed in the same hotel!! We were on different floors and neither one of us knew the other was there. By the way I haven't seen him since March of 07.

On our Alaska 2000 trip, we went into a campground store just outside of Denali and ran into a couple we knew from back home and hadn't seen for 10yrs.

The world even gets smaller when you display an iRV2.com sticker! It's almost as good as having a Stew Leonard bag!

Back in the late 40's I spent summers with my grandparents in the Catskills. Very rural. Family across the highway had kids so we had playmates. Early 50's we moved to Illinois (military family). In 1960 I was working after school in a grocery store. An airman from the base was working there parttime also. We got to talking about names and he said that I had never heard his last name before. I said that I had. The family that had the kids across the highway had a foster child with that name. He told me that his family had been split apart and 7 kids fostered out. 6 of them had found each other but no one knew where Ralph was. You guessed it--Ralph was the foster child I played with during the summers. And I was able to connect him with his brother. And this happened years after I left that area and 1000 miles away.

We were in Branson, Missouri and were sitting in a restaurant eating lunch and I asked if they had fry sauce, natch they said they had never heard of it and the woman behind us started to tell them what it was. We turned around to look at her and she was a woman my wife had worked with at the IRS in Utah some 10 years earlier.
