Theresa Leppert shares her memories of converting an RV into a boat and camping along the river with her family in the 1970s with Go RVing.

I have been camping as long as I can remember. My dad sold RVs in the 1970s and 1980s, so we were always in and around the camping lifestyle.  I remember spending a lot of time at RV shows.  The excitement of those shows was tangible. In the 70s, there was always a mainliner act of some sort.  The one I remember best was the year The Flying Wallendas performed their trapeze act over our heads as we explored the Expo Center while my dad worked.  If you’ve never heard of them, here’s the LINK to the documentary made in 1998 about their incredible family. I have an autographed sweaty towel from one of them somewhere! I was so proud of that autograph and having my picture taken with such a famous person.
