Joining The RV Nation

Ken Wright hated RVs and RVers... until he became and RVer.

The source of my arrogance is that my wife and I have long been outdoor purists: backpackers, car campers, river runners, and commercial guides. In all those decades, we’ve always slept – and, for several summers, lived -- under either canvas or the stars, and the biggest “motor coach” we’ve employed has been a 1981 Jeep Wagoneer. And we have endeavored to raise our two children – now 10- and 12-year-old backcountry brats and river rats themselves -- the same proudly primitive way.

Yet here we be. We be RV.

I really liked most of the fellow RVers we met on the road and in campgrounds up and down the great Rocky Mountains. While these are not people we would normally wouldn’t run into camping the way we usually camp, they were still fun. They were friendly. They were interesting. They were … well, travelers, just like us. And I think we found with these folks a deeper connection here than I, in my mountain-man machismo, was ever willing to admit before. Full Story...
