We feel very fortunate to be part of a relatively small group of folks who write blogs about their RV life and experiences, and some of us have been doing this for a long time. Phannie and Mae, for example, has been going since 2005; many of the others we follow have been around much longer. Regardless of their longevity, however, these bloggers accrue a following among fellow RV bloggers who get to know each other, to a degree, through their postings. It is natural, then, that we try to meet up with our blogging brothers and sisters if we happen to cross their paths. It always strikes us that, had it not been for their blogging activity, we would probably never had had the opportunity to become friends.
Having had the good fortune to meet a number of our blogger friends over the life of Phannie and Mae, we look forward in each instance to making a deeper acquaintance, enhancing through personal nuance and interaction what we already know about them. And that foreknowledge seems always to turn out to be more significant than expected; you can tell a lot about people by what they write and how they write it.
To a person, we value these fine folks as our friends, and we count it as our extreme good fortune to have met them in person. Here they are, in no particular order:
