MESSAGE FROM MARGUERITE
In this issue, we highlight the great American road trip. Journeys that traverse over super highways, as well as iconic routes that allow you to meander the back roads. A good road trip enables us to explore so many destinations, from well-known landmarks and popular boardwalks, to picturesque overlooks that always command a photo op.
Perhaps this summer you and your family are planning your maiden voyage. A new kind of adventure for your family, a camping vacation under the stars, a road trip that takes you to possibly some familiar and maybe some unfamiliar stops along the way. Each hour provides a sense of exploration and excitement, and perhaps new friendships along the way.
As you know, RVers are famous for hitting the road and blazing a trail of adventure as they travel across the country. An initial maiden voyage was all it took to get them hooked, yearning to discover more. For RVers, itís just as much about the journey as it is the destination, and a lot of times, the scenic route is the best route.
On August 21, 2017, we will be able to witness a total solar eclipse, the first such eclipse in the contiguous U.S. since 1979. And, in case you have yet to see the path, it will cross over a number of your favorite Thousand Trails campgrounds, providing you and your family with a prime viewing area for this spectacular event. This is certainly an event worth road tripping for.
So whether your planning your own great American road trip, or making plans to travel to a Thousand Trails campground to witness The Great American Eclipse, as some are referring to it as, the key to a successful trip is the planning process that occurs prior to embarking on any journey.
When you begin to make your plans, consider the scenic route to take advantage of an American pastime: the roadtrip. Who knows what kind of gems you may find along the way!
