Thank you everyone for bringing this back on track. smile My daughter is happy with all the responses. Nautic1 your absolutily right. One of my favorite sayings is that if your not part of the solutions your part of the problem. smile I agree with you too 4snymph we need to get there doesn't matter how, just need to get there and support. And love to hear that Suzie about the younger generations smile But as the older vanners we need to let the younger ones come in and help them and welcome them and their ideas as was stated. smile Bringing up the problems may help others speak out and bring up the answers we are all looking for.
Live everyday like there is no tomorrow.

Suzie I'm glad you stated all the new to our Vanning Family. There are quite alot of new younger vanners joining us and starting their own clubs. Some of them were introduced by their parents, some introduced by their friends. My Daughter has been in tow with me the past few years, making new friends and 'getting it'. I'm second generation so that would make her third generation; just have to talk her into buying and driving a van now smile Also, my 6 year old Grandaughter just adores vans and keeps asking to go to an evant. Looks like I'm going to have to step up to the plate and turn her into fourth generation. Years ago I personally did not bring children to truck-ins because that was my time away to unwind. But now that I'm much older I come to realize that if I do not bring my kids/grandkids and introduce them to this wonderful life I have enjoyed for so long, I am not doing my job to see that this lifestyle grows.
My club is also growing which makes me quite happy. It'll never be the 250 vans it was back in the 70's, but hey we are adding new members!
And the hubby likes to try and make it to a new evant each summer, one that we haven't been to yet. We'll be heading to Ohio next weekend to check out the Knightmare Vanners and support them. Of course being able to afford going away for the weekend is first important. This Sunday we'll be heading to a park here in Detroit for a picnic we were invited to by one of the Detroit clubs here. Haven't hung out with the Detroit clubs in a quite awhile, so we're due. I've never gotten into Vanning Politics so I guess I'm a bit blinded or naive. Or maybe it's just that for the past 34 years I go to have the best time with my best friends smile We wish the younger generation joining us the very best and will stand behind and support them every inch of the way.

Thanks Deb-sorry I forgot to mention about the new blood in MI too--you guys have 3 new members in the past couple of years too! And they are a great addition!

I really do believe we will be just fine into the future.
I also believe that those that keep saying 'vanning is dying' or asking 'what is wrong with vanning' are often--even unintentionally--the source of too much attention and need to get out to eVANts other than that one an hour from the house!

Vanners of all ages and kinds just gotta hit the highway and see what is really happening out in the VANNING world! You really don't get the full effect on the flatscreen!
Cherish your friends!
HUGGS to all!
