      The Mountains October 28 That’s a great story Curtis; I can relate. On our maiden voyage in May 2016, we headed up to BC to visit family. We were booked at the Cultus Lake TT and had never stayed there before. As we neared the park, I made a wrong turn and we ended up in a reside...  more

      Mike and Donna Wagner October 28 We have never been full-time RVers - but we still had a "maiden voyage". For us it was when we borrowed Mike's brother's little Class C, loaded up our 12 year old daughter, and a neighborhood dog that had adopted us and wouldn't go home - and we didn't kn...  more

        Curtis (RVillage Founder) October 28 Love this! I took my nieces and nephews to Disneyland once in the bus. I dropped em off at the front and told em I would park and find em in a bit. Then I parked, made myself a PB&J sammich, laid down on the bed and watched TV. THEN i went in to meet them. :)

      Tea Time Smiles October 28 I do not have any memory of my first trip in an RV.  This is understandable as I was 29 days old (they used one of the drawers as my bassinet).  This Shasta trailer wasn’t vintage at the time.  Thank you mom & dad for making nature my home!!!

        Nancy & Jonathan October 28 Just love that car and TT your parents owned.  We bought our 1st RV in 2019 (we are in our 60s and retired), after looking for two years.  We ended up with the modern version of what your parents had!

      Outofsightadventures October 28 What a great story! As I was reading it, a phrase that is very special to Alec and me for various reasons, came to my mind...”Omnia mea mecum porto”...translates to “all that is mine I carry with me” but means so much more:)
