Glen & Margaret Bassindale - Newmar Kountry Klub
Glen grew up "real camping" in Algonquin Park, you know with a tent, canoe, freeze dried food and cold dips in the lake,
I grew up with my parents, who started out with the original box tent trailer from the Simpson Sears catalogue. They went through the whole process of moving up to a larger tent trailer, to the slide in truck camper to a fifth wheel and then onto a Newmar in the early 80s.
When Glen and I started camping we went one year in his tent and the next year in 1992, we bought our first Newmar 5th wheel and you can say the rest is history.
We joined the Kountry Klub in 1992 and attended our first International rally in 1993. We have participated in the Klub at all levels, starting out as secretary/treasurer, then on to chapter presidents and stepped up to Region 8 Directors in 2010.
We think the best thing about the Klub is travelling to and enjoying places throughout North America that we would quite possibly never have known existed. It has been a great experience!
