Hi Ladies,

I've been a member of the RV America forum for quite awhile, but pretty much as a 'lurker'. I've enjoyed following the Town Talk for quite a while, and learned a lot and would like to be a member.

I'm married, three grown children and seven wonderful grandkids. We camped when our kids were young, then stopped for quite awhile and started again with a 5th wheel in 2001. Joined a Good Sam chapter here in Wisconsin and camp at least one weekend a month from May to October.

We've taken two extended trips with the RV....one month in Florida and then another time we spent 6 weeks in AZ.

Welcome, glad you decided to quit lurking and join the fun. I met you in the chat room. I have a brother that lives across the lake in Thunder Bay. I have only been up that way once and it was beautiful.

I camped with my boys when they were young. My DH doesn't want to travel so I usually make short trips alone or with my sister. I tried to find a Good Sam Chapter to camp with but the ones around here don't do much.

Hi Martha,

Our Good Sam Club camps one weekend a month, since there are a few members who are still working. The weekend usually consists of going for a 'fish fry' on Friday evening. We have a potluck breakfast and a potluck supper on Saturday. Usually have our meeting after the breakfast and then can do whatever we wish until later in the afternoon. Sometimes the hosts plan special activities or games. If we're camping in an area where there are other activities, some go shopping, rummaging, or gambling if we're near a casino. The one thing that I really miss is that we don't do any campfire cooking....that used to be one of my favorite parts of camping when we camped with our kids years ago. We do have a campfire on Friday and Saturday nights, weather permitting. How far do you and your sister travel from home? What type of things do you do when camping? Have you been to any of the get togethers the ladies have organized?

My sister and I usually go to Toledo Bend Lake which is on the border of Texas and Louisiana about 200 miles from me. My sister lives near there so I pick her up on the way. She is still working so we don't get very far from home. We both like to fish so do that at the lake and if the fish aren't biting she likes to look for garage sales. She keeps talking about us going to Disney World but if we don't hurry up we will have to rent wheelchairs when we get there. lol

A couple of years ago I joined the Texas chapter of RVing Women and have been to some of their rallies. That is a fun bunch of women. There are usually some activities planned and of course a pot luck. I went to the GTG in Aransas Pass last month. That was with some of the RVW members and some of the forum members.
