This is a question that I have enjoyed asking... When asking the question myself I have found some wonderful and fun stories. Some like me got into motor homing because of our pet(s). Some through the company they worked for and enjoyed it so much that they stayed with it. As the story starts, you see a question in each face, seemly wondering why are you asking me this question. Some try to make it short. However, once inside their head you find their true love for the outdoors, the open roads and to see this wonderful country with it's rich history and much more. As I said, we got into RVing because of our pet. Our story, like most we wanted to go on a vacation, but with our dog it made going anywhere a problem, Most hotels will not permit a pet and some will. One day out of the blue, I got a call from an old Air Force friend asking if we would go to the dedication of the Vietnam Dog HandlersCanine Memorial to be held at Fort Benning, GA. He also informed me without asking our pets were welcomed and could stay at the hotel with us. After it was over my wife and I talked about taking some vacation time, which we had not done in years. We started to explorer the question with friends who had pets. Some were like us with nowhere to leave a pet., until he got a motor home. We explored the idea of owning a motor home and that is another story. We loved it the first time out on the open road. We drove from Florida to Texas to watch my sister’s boy get some Navy wings. He now is a pilot flying the F-18. My wife loves Football and I enjoy baseball, we found that the university Florida State University (FSU) had an RV parking a cross the street from both ball fields. We enjoyed the home games until we lost our pet from old age. She was the beat, always near my wife keeping her company. We found a RV park in North Georgia. Then a short 7 mile drive back into the hills near Blairsville. Now, I am retired and always looking for the next road trip. I found a wonderful Motor home website called Movinon.netthey have wrote a few books on the subject of road trips along with tons of pictures. To complete this story let me just say, “It is the call of the open road. The total enjoyment and freedom to explor this rich and blessed country of ours.
