Guest Post: A Love Letter to Frankie and Pere

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I asked readers to write a love letter to their DINOS and picked a winning essay.  Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing all of the entries.

Here’s what Kat wrote:


My Dearest Frankie & Pere,

 I suffer from Fibromyalgia and PTSD, making me a PINOS (Person in Need of Space).  Thank you for making last year’s 6 week camping tour of Texas, Mississippi, Georgia, Louisiana, Florida and North Carolina a wonderful success.  I would not have been able to go without you both.  You are wonderful diplomats for DINOS and PINOS.  You help me to know who are safe people to meet and chat with in the campgrounds.  I was able to go out hiking and beach walking with you both.  Something I never could have done on my own. 



Pere, thank you for taking me to the top of Fort Pickens to see the Gulf of Mexico and the butterflies migrating.  Your youthful energy and exploratory nature are appreciated.  Frankie, thank you for helping me find the best photography spots.  You have the patience of a Saint.  We saw so many beautiful places, plants and animals on this trip.  I wanted you to know camping season is almost here and I am looking forward to the new places you will take me.  Start counting boys – T minus 30 days til Camping season begins.

All My Love,
