We were at a cg near Mt Rushmore SD in our little Casita about 4 summers ago. As we were setting up to BBQ, a tent trailer pullled in. They had a Cali plate, so at some point the topic of "where about in Cali" came up. They said off the central coast.... oh where.... a little place north of... really? Us too, we're near... NO WAY... For reals? You live just down the street from Don's mom! And, the woman turns out to be a lady who works with my son's ex-wife's aunt (and of course we all know each others names as a result). The husband knows Don's uncle from work a few years back.


Oh, and thanks Fishy! We appreciate your contributions!

I try and avoid old classmates. Somtimes a whole year goes by and we don't see a single license plate from home.

A few years ago, before I bought my Eagle, I was renting a trailer at a camp site at Goderich, Ontario, on the shores of Lake Huron, about 3+ hours EAST of where I live. I noticed an Outback travel trailer that I liked. I spoke to the owner and he asked me to come in and see it. He told me he was very happy with it.

A few months later, I was at Darien Lake theme park, about 2.5 hours SOUTH, in New York State . I saw the exact same model of trailer so I thought I would ask the owner how he liked his.

I'll be darned - it was the same guy and same trailer!

What are the chances?

Crabman, I will take you up on the crabs.....and oysters ......and clams...and and and.
I was born and raised near St. Micheals on the Eastern Shore of MD. I am living in AZ now and miss the REAL seafood and the water.

And I would NEVER talk about work.

My big deal with spring break is to get away from work!!! We vowed not to talk any work the entire week....but darn-it - I will be reminded of work all week long..lol....

I SORTA feel your pain as I almost had this happen. Two years ago a co worker who is a fellow camper was going to get a seasonal site at the same place i camp. I felt EXACTLY like you. I had no problems with her, she was very nice, but I also was thinking...oi vey! I go camping to get away from work, if she is in the same area, will they come down to our site and talk about the job a lot?

Lucky for me, she and her spouse ended up choosing a different campground.

Not much help I am to ya, other than to say I know EXACTLY what you mean, and think I know pretty much how you are feeling right now.

YES!! My 2nd time out camping I pulled into the site and it was dark. I was NOT getting that RV in that site. This woman tells me her husband would back it in ifI wanted him too (well, yea). I jump out of the truck and the woman is in a t shirt, shorts, no makeup and it happens to be a lady from work!! She is always dressed to the 9's and professional....didn't even recognize her.
We were campsite neighbors all weekend and never talked about work. It was great.
What are the chances~

I never have a problem running into co-workers where I camp... it is just too far from bars for them...
