Neither rain, nor sleet, nor gloom of night will keep me from my appointed camping date with friends. You may recall a couple of weeks ago I questioned whether I would be able
to negotiate our RV down the steep snow covered hill we live on. Well I am happy to report the weekend get away was a success even in spite of the rain, snow, sleet and gloominess of gray skies and darkness of night. Good friends, lots of firewood, a tarp and a couple of electric heaters made for an enjoyable winter camping trip. How about you?
Do you have a RV winter get away scheduled? If not, schedule one today. It is a great way to beat the winter blues.
Dave Helgeson’s many roles in the RV industry started before he even had a driver’s license. His grandparents and father owned an RV dealership before the term “RV” had been coined, and Dave played a pivotal role in nearly every position of an RV dealership. He and his wife Cheri launched their own RV dealership in the Pacific Northwest. The duo also spent 29 years overseeing regional RV shows. Dave has also served as President of a local chapter of the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA), worked on the board of advisors for the RV Technician Program of a local technical college, and served as a board member of the Manufactured Home and RV Association. Dave’s reputation earned him the title of “The foremost expert on boondocking,” bestowed by RV industry icon, the late Gary Bunzer (The RV Doctor). When he’s not out boondocking, you’ll find Dave in the spotlight at RV shows across the country, giving seminars about all things RVing. He and Cheri currently roam in their fifth travel trailer, with Dave doing all the service, repair and modifications to his own unit.
