Poll - Do you visit other "eggs" in campgrounds

When camping in your Fiberglass Egg you you stop in and say HI to any other "egg owner's" in the campground? My wife always knows that if I go for a walk she will find me talking with someone with a fiberglass egg.

Of course. We are a friendly bunch, so why not stop and say HI.

I'm not quite understanding the distinction between the last two poll choices.

That said, my wife and I are both somewhat introverted (she more so), so I don't go out of my way to start conversations. We're both in a very people-centered vocation, so when we're on vacation we like to withdraw a bit and be anonymous. I would never go out of my way to avoid meeting people, but I am the type to wave and pass on, unless they give signals that they would enjoy chatting.

Yes, I get so excited when I see another fiberglass trailer and quite perturbed when the people aren't home. If people seem like they want to be left alone though and don't make eye contact etc I leave them be.

No question about it, I always stop and say hello, and introduce myself as another Egg owner.
Normally that will get me a tour, which I'm more than happy to reciprocate with at my campsite. I don't push myself into their vacation, though. Many times I'll exchange information about the camping groups I'm in and FGRV, of course!!

When we first started traveling Ginny was hesitant to intrude on others until she realized they were away and alone and now always stops to say hello. In general I find RVers to be a friendly group.

We particularly stop and visit with egg owners, in a sense it's a life club. We find that people that once owned a fiberglass trailer virtually always stop by, reliving their past.

The friendliness is particularly nice when you're really away, a good chance to find more of the 'good places'.

I vote either of the first two. We always welcome visitors and questions. But once we got thrown out of a Casita owners campsite, and a Snoozy owner wasn't too friendly, so you never know. I had a "Visitors Welcome" sign made for our teardrop as that attracts a lot of attention but found some people were hesitant to ask about it. The order of most to least attraction seems to be teardrop, then the Uhaul, and the Casita draws the least interest.

One year we were on the road almost 11 months. That year we kept track of the number of trailer tours we did, it was over 100 separate tours. We feel we're spreading the word, the people have always been nice.

When ever we visit someone we make sure to invite them over. Obviously not everyone is going to love us, but that's ok. It's always positive to offer consideration to another.

I always tell our kids that when you give a gift, the gift is gone. It is their's, they get to do what they want with it.

We send a check to one of our nieces every month, she never says thank you. That's OK, but maybe not polite, but it's been given with no strings attached, as should every gift be given. It's the same with a greeting, it's a gift of your time. It may not be accepted graciously, they may be having a bad moment, day or even life, however it might just make a little or even a big difference. Love often and well.

If they didn't want me to come over and talk, they shouldn't have purchased an egg.


On the other hand, I don't like them coming over to our site cause Terry won't stop talking about our egg.

Enjoy,

Perry

The Modernistic teardrop is a 1946, Casita is a '96. I'll have to see if I can rearrange that list. EDIT, all I could do was change the punctuation and add the year of the Casita, hope that clarifies it.
