Well, a lot of my friends are in Kerrville this month for a gathering of friends. Meeting new friends and renewing acquaintances with old friends.
It was a couple years ago when a chat room through RV Dreams was established for the purpose of exchanging information between Rver’s. A few of us found the chat room and started chatting each night. As time progressed and we got to know each other better more people started migrating to the chat room.
Quite a few of us were signed up to go to the RV Dreams Rally in Branson and this would be our first face to face meeting. Let me tell you it was one cool rally. I have never in my life had so much fun with people I didn’t know. It was non stop hugs and handshakes until everyone got there.
Even though the days were busy with seminars and demonstrations the magic started in the evening when the laptops came out. Imagine chatting with someone on the internet and being able to look up and see their face across the table not to mention the verbal communication going on at the same time. (Dee and Bob) Teaching those people who were a little leary of the chatroom was fun too. Showing them the ropes and explaining how safe it was was part of our job. This particular chat room has no profanity and most nights it is like a big neighborhood block party.
We even had a show and tell on a big screen for the whole group as to how the chat works with six of us as demonstrators talking to our friends in Canada, Maine and Texas.
Close friendships have developed over the past two years that will continue way into the future. Rver’s are notoriously friendly and this is what this group is all about. We welcome newcomers and greet them with open arms --- as well as those who do not chat on a regular basis.
That is what the gathering is all about - A gathering of Friends.
That’s it For Today.
