MEDIA: We’ve Been Blurbed!

Posted In: Blog, Media Coverage, Photos

Kristy and I are members of Good Sam Club. We joined in 2007, a few months after buying our Airstream and hitting the road. We don’t have any “official” affiliation with the club, although we do blog on RV.net (a site that’s owned by the same parent company, Affinity).

When we first started camping, we really didn’t know ANYTHING about the RV club scene. What interested me in Good Sam Club, quite frankly, was the 10% discount that members receive when staying at Good Sam campgrounds. It costs about $20 to join the club, but the membership “pays for itself” if you use it at campgrounds the way we do.

When we do long term Airstream travel, we stay at a lot of privately owned campgrounds. There’s more to life than Walmart parking lots, right? At times, even the most ardent boondocker has gotta have hookups. Even Queen Elizabeth I took four baths a year.

We usually choose to stay at Good Sam parks because (1) they are everywhere (2) they are usually quite good (3) we get a modest discount, and (4) there is NO number four. 😉

Anyway, as part of its standard membership, Good Sam Club also sends a monthly magazine to its almost ONE MILLION members. We were pleased to see LongLongHoneymoon.com featured in the current issue. Woo hoo! Good news, indeed.

 

What's this? Long Long Honeymoon gets a little magazine love!

Some corporate campgrounds are basically grassy parking lots with sewer hookups – sounds inviting, doesn’t it? But I’ve noticed that most (not all) Good Sam parks are a little more charming in character than other campgrounds.

Each park is individually owned and operated, so there’s obviously some variation in quality. But we’ve had satisfying experiences at the parks. You usually (not always!) get a little more space, a little better landscaping, and a little warmer hospitality. We use the Trailer Life Directory and RVParkReviews.com to choose the better campgrounds before we book a reservation.

So anyway, thanks to the good people at Good Sam Club for the coverage. We’re getting 2010 off to a promising start!
