Well stated.

Too often today people look for the negative, so much so they are blind to the positive.

It just seems the older some people get the more cynical the become.

My wife had eight brothers and sisters and when they were young they camped for 2 weeks at a time. She talks fondly of those trips and the places she saw. Granted 2 weeks is not full time, but i'll cheer those guys on and I would like to spend a day or two next to them.

When you think about how the regular schooling is going nowdays, they more than likely can easily beat it. Bet they get more one on one with their teacher.

I grew up in a family only slightly smaller than this one. Our home was only slightly larger than the motorhome they are using. Our parents were loving and sincere-our family was strong and supportive of one another. All of us children became very successful adults with great jobs/careers and families of our own. All 10 of us siblings look back on our childhood with no feelings except disgust, and each of us left quickly as soon as we were old enough. We were forced to live with no privacy, no sense of individuality, and older children had to assume adult roles to help care for younger ones, thus giving up their childhood. Not one of us chose to have a large family of our own. I wish these people the best. I hope the children overcome the disadvantages.

We have parked next to very large families in campgrounds with outstandingly well behaved children. A large group of people in one campsite, however, cannot help but be noisy and disruptive. They have the right to be there. We just would rather park elsewhere.

I'll bet there were quite a few families on the Oregon Trail who had 10 or more kids. And just think of those conditions..............

Wanderlust can be a strong obsession.

One thing I do wonder. How do they legally drive with that many kids in the MH? I noticed they don't talk about sleeping arrangements and I got to wondering if it's a legal issue (i.e. you can't actually legally restrain that many people in a MH)?
I'll be curious to see if they talk about it.

What is the seat belt law in New York State?

New York State law requires all front seat passengers to wear seat belts. Children under the age of 16 must wear seat belts when they are in the front seat or the back seat.

Then there is the seatbelt exemption for busses................

Now, if they can find the laws of the other 49 states, it would be interesting............

Me too. Tallulah pointed out that the baby wasn't in a car seat. I was wondering if they had a Norcold. It wouldn't be able to cool if it was opened as many times as it would be with that crew.

I'm 1 of 15 kids. 12 boys and 3 girls. My parents are turning 90 in the next couple of months. You couldn't put me in that MH for anything. To me that's just crazy.
