Hey Claire, I think Judy let you know that I would like to respond to your question regarding RV travel, being a single woman and on the road with your corgis. I only started RVing seriously in 2010, when I bought my motorhome. Many years prior to that I had borrowed one from my BIL at the time and took it on an all girls camp trip. From there I knew that some day I would like to have one of my own. I'm 63, single now, and travel 4-5 months out of the year. I travel alone but generally with a destination of meeting some like minded travelers, i.e. owners of the same type of RV (every make has them) and recently a group called RV Women which has chapters all over the county. Enroute, I look for interesting places or locations I would like to stop. The get together may only be for 3 or 4 days but I will make a minimum of a week out of that. Last year I attended a dog camp with Timmy for 3 days, then met up with the Pacific Northwest group of corgi owners for 6 days at Grayland Beach inWashington, then went to an RV get together in Oregon. I was gone for a month total.
Moral of my novel (LOL) I find the nicest people in an RV park or campground, I've never felt uncomfortable or alone, but I do enjoy my own company and that of my dog so I'm never lonely.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask me, I'll friend you and that way you can send a message privately.
By the way, there is a great "dog camp" in the Chicago area, called Campdogwood, I've though about it, but that's a long way to go. Good luck and happy traveling now that you're retired.
Hi Claire!!Finally found You!We who are corgi campers have been trying to answer Your camping questions.Sylvia and Timmy would be wonderful to talk to on hereshe's also a single traveler,We are a camping couple with 2 corgis and a travel trailer.I'll tell Sylvia I found You!!
I also think Our 2 Merlins are alot alike.They just started Their lives totally different,but both ended up with people Who love them!!Our girl is also the alpha/boss of the house.We found a wonderful breeder up in Oregon about 5 months after We lost 2 geriatric pups within a month of each other.She had a 4 month old little girl,who she had already taken to a couple of puppy matches,but her legs were just too short for the standards!!But great for Us!!Keri was already doggydoor ,potty trained and leash trained.We drove up,fell in love and took Her home.We have always felt 2 dogs are happier together,so 6 months later,We contacted the breeder again.Well,back up to Oregon with Keri tagging along :).She helped Us pick out Merlin!!We needed a passive/sweet male to go with Her alpha spirit.He couldn't be sweeter.They both love to travel like Yours,so RVing with them is a blast!!We're taking off tomorrow for a 3-day trip to the local beach.BTW,do You happen to have Bev Levy there in Michigan as a corgi pal??She's a great corgi Mom too!!
