Our first day at the Hershey RV show focused on coaches. The crowds were light and it made it easy to spend time on the models that we wanted to see.
Of course we wanted to spend time at the Newmar section of the show. And, much to our surprise, we bumped into John and Michelle from Newmar.
Not that we had ever met them before. No, we met them through this video:
We had watched this video dozens of times while we were waiting for our coach to be built and delivered. When we saw them in real life, it was almost as though we were meeting some old friends.
They were both very generous with their time and both really nice people genuinely interested in our ownership experience.
We also made some new friends in one of the Dutch Stars, Jake and Lydia, a wonderful couple from Pennsylvania. They own a 2015 Dutch Star and we began sharing a lot of stories about our ownership experience, the differences between Canadians and Americans, the American election as well as a number of other topics. Another couple joined in, Lynn and Debbie, and, before we knew it, a couple of hours had passed.
This was one of the highlights of our day. I’m not sure if we will connect again with Jake and Lydia, I hope that we do, and I am not sure if Lynn and Debbie elected to purchase a Dutch Star. I do know that great conversation with delightful people is an enriching experience.
