Our Last RV Test Run

As I said in my last post, last week’s “test run” wasn’t the first. We’ve been through quite a few motorhomes/RVs in our day and had a lot of fun.

Here’s the blog post I wrote on our last “test-run.” It was definitely bigger and nicer than our current one. But I wouldn’t say we degraded. We just adjusted to what life threw our way (and city policy lengths).

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did, reading it again!

Camping With The Koontzes

My family is really into camping. We love it. Ever since I was a baby we’ve been going places in, first a camper van, then a motorhome, then an RV.

My older brother and I both learned how to ride our bikes while staying at the same motorhome park, several years apart from each other. That’s something, I imagine, is learned on the neighborhood street, with the friendly neighborhood kids cheering you on from the sidewalk and your mom smiling from the porch, holding a glass of lemonade on a tray for you for when you’re done.

That happens.. right?

Motorhomes and RVs have been something of a staple in my family. We use them for everything — camping, the beach, to live in when our house was being built, to spend the day in when our church was forty minutes away and we didn’t want to drive home to eat a fifteen minute lunch before having to rush back to church for Sunday afternoon choir practice.

Motorhomes and RVs have just been a huge part of our lives. The movie, “RV,” speaks to us.
