Gas prices not keeping families from traveling

High gas prices are not going to stop members of the National African-American RVers Association from travel and recreation. This year’s Southern Regional Rally, in Gadsden at the River Country Campground, was lined with recreational vehicles belonging to more than 200 families.

The Southern Regional Rally, which takes place once a year, brings together 15 local groups from the Southern region in areas including, Alabama, Arkan-sas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas.

Lemuel Horton, director of the Southern Region of NAARVA and president of the Merrimac Sams group in Decatur, Ga., said he doesn’t think too much about gas.

“As an RVer, if you worry about gas, you’re in the wrong business. People probably take shorter trips now because of the price, but it doesn’t stop it,” he said.

Sydria Carter, member of the Jacksonville, Fla., group said while gas is high, she still is willing to attend these events.

“It’s a priority for us, so we make sacrifices,” Carter said.

NAARVA, an organization known for being family-oriented, also fosters camaraderie and lifelong friendships. S.N. Campbell said that’s a large part of the attraction and what the organization is about.
