Mark has been working as our Sr. Business Data Analyst since August 2020. While he’s relatively new to our team, he’s no noob when it comes to RVing. He and his wife spent 2019 through late 2020 traveling around the U.S. in there travel trailer. They recently took Coach-Net’s Airstream for a quick weekend trip.
- Where did you go?
We went to Lake O.H. Ivie in Voss, TX for the Memorial holiday weekend. It’s about a 3 hour drive from our home in Granbury. It’s a very secluded and beautiful Texas lake where I used to go all the time as a child. It was my first time to visit the lake in over 20 years.
- How long was your trip?
We only stayed in the lakeside RV park for 2 nights. We didn’t want to stay for too long as it was our 6 month old’s first time camping and we were not quite sure how it would go. As it turns out, she loved it and we could have stayed much longer.
- Was this your 1st time RVing?
Actually, from 2019 through late 2020 we traveled around the U.S. and lived in an RV. We are very experienced RVers and love every minute of it.
- What’s the fondest memory of your trip?
This whole trip will be special because it was our daughter’s first camping trip. She absolutely loved looking out the big windows of the Airstream!
- Did you find anything challenging about your RV trip?
With the location being remote, we didn’t have any cell reception so that was challenging at times, especially when trying to meet up with family and plan things. It was also an unmarked RV spot on dirt paths with some very tight turns and close obstacles. We had to do a 180 and some fancy maneuvering but were able to get it there without a scratch or problem. These types of challenges are also a big part of the fun for me; maybe not so much for my wife.
- Would you go again?
Yes, we love to get on any lake we can and Ivie is so clear and blue which is a rare find in TX. The fishing is really really good there right now and never fails (but keep that on the down-low.)
- Where would you like to go next?
We would like to visit more of the great state parks in TX. In our experience state parks, all across the US, is the best RV camping experience.
- Why do you love RVing?
The best thing about RVing is that you can right into the attraction or scene you are visiting. You don’t have to travel back and forth between a hotel, you have everything you need right there with you.
