I guess because they don’t have enough to worry about with things like wars and natural disasters and politics, people are involved in a big debate going on online about the future availability of campgrounds and how hard it is becoming to find a last-minute campsite in many areas. Some blame long-term seasonal campers, others […]

We joined the Good Sam Club when we bought our first motorhome, and just as quickly dropped our membership because our mailbox was immediately crammed with solicitations to renew our membership, to sign up for their roadside insurance plan, and to buy this product and that service. Repeated letters and phone calls to Good Sam […]
