Have you ever made a decision and then you’re itching to get things moving? Well, that’s how I feel about joining the camping club called The National African American RV Association (NAARVA). What does a girl have to do to be down with the club?
Okay. So it’s been only one day and I need to slow my jet. You see…I’m just excited about being able to connect with some cool campers. I don’t know them, but I have a close friend who has hung out with this group. If she says they’re cool, they must be. Right? Yes. And that’s that. So I’m going to relax and be patient.
This camping club, NAARVA, was formed in 1993. Their first outing consisted of 165 RV’s. Can you imagine? The club is nationwide and broken into four regions. Each region has between 5 and 17 chapters.
I really wanted to avoid an official membership club, but this seems to be the way to go for now. No matter how much my friends hear about me and my family camping, it’s still just ‘us’ out there. So I’m thinking joining this group will support our statements that black people do camp.
I’ll keep you updated on my progress. In the meantime, feel free to check out NAARVA here.
