This Camping Group Is Ladies Only
Camping can include fishing and fires and frolicking in a forest. But it doesn’t have to. Some adventurous women fancy a feminine version of camping, television station WBIR reported.
Last weekend compact campers crowded Claybough Campground in Pigeon Forge. It was a gathering of women from across the country with a special bond. They are Sisters on the Fly.
“It’s a wonderful, wonderful group. All women. You don’t bring your pets, don’t bring your husbands, don’t bring your children, and you can travel in little groups if you want to,” Penny Manning said.
She has been active in the group only recently but joined 14 years ago.
“I saw about six little campers and one happened to have the email address. And I thought when I get older I am going to do that. That’s what I am going to do and I went back and I joined,” she said.
A polka dot vintage camper belongs to sister #3347. But they don’t get hung up on numbers or even campers.
“A lot of people think you have to have a little camper. I’ve only had mine about a month,” she said.
Each camper has a theme. Penny Manning calls hers Sweet Fanny McGee.
“I meant for it to look in the 60s because it’s a ’63 Metzendorf but I think it looks more like a teenager’s room. But that’s ok. It’s bright, it’s sunny, comfortable,” she explained.
