We recently posted a simple question on our Thousand Trails Facebook page. "How long have you been a member?"

I was extremely pleased when I read through the responses. From members who have been a part of the Thousand Trails family for over 42 years, to new members joining the family just days ago, the theme was apparent: Thousand Trails has provided, and continues to provide, generations of families with a great vacation option. From our unique settings and accommodations to our popular themed weekend events, we have been fostering family fun and long lasting memories for over 45 years. And, some of the responses noted that a few of you have been making these same lasting memories with us for the full 45 years!

So, as we gear up for another fun summer season and prepare to create another year of memories, I encourage you to take our vacation personality quiz on page 42 of the magazine. Are the lakes and mountains calling, or do you prefer the beach? Are you always looking for a great locale that provides numerous things to see and do in the area, or are you content to simply spend more time with the family? Whatever your personality turns out to be, I am confident we provide the perfect vacation destination.

We are also excited for you to see what we’ve been up to during the off season. I am sure you will be pleased with the recent upgrades to a number of our properties, from swimming pools and decks, sports courts and mini golf, to expanded beach areas and new rental accommodations, there will be no shortage of fun in the sun this summer. Watch for our Theme Weekend Directory, scheduled to be included in our May issue, to further help plan your vacation. You’ll have your vacation personality determined and events set to make the trip even more worthwhile!

What’s a trip without a theme song? Coming soon, we will be sharing our new Thousand Trails song and I guarantee you and your family will be singing along all season.

With that said, I want to end with a verse from the song:
A thousand trails
A thousand sunsets
A thousands steps
Up to that summit
A thousand things
You haven’t done yet
Just waiting on you
To get out that door

So, what are you waiting for? There are a Thousand Trails, a Thousand Trails for me and you...
