Die-hard campers defy slow economy

Branson Daily News - MO, United States
Nothing can stop them, the die-hard campers, who, despite bad weather, the failing economy or high fuel prices, keep traveling to Branson.

“The economy hasn’t stopped us from camping,” said Ronnie Dunigan, of Tulsa, Okla. “We don’t come quite as often as we did before, but now we stay longer. It’s just not feasible to come to Branson to camp for only three or four days, because of the price of gas.”

This time around, Dunigan is setting up for a month-long stay.

“My RV gets about six miles to the gallon, so when we travel, we try to get our money’s worth,” he said. “We have been (camping) for 58 years and we don’t plan on stopping because of a little bad weather or gas prices.”
