In Conversation with Bonnie Neely

May 30 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us on Tuesday, May 30th at 5:30 pm for an In Conversation event with Bonnie Burgess Neely! She’ll be chatting about her book Real Ventures: Did We Really Do That?.

Come by and hear more about her incredible life and book at this free event!


Isolation during the Pandemic vastly increased RV travel, but also created anxiety and depression. The best release for emotional distress is humor. This book presents the gift of laughter and escape, so needed at this troubled time in the world! This is the perfect read for your favorite chair or on any trip. Whether you are campers or those who prefer staying at home, it will keep all ages laughing aloud or gasping in amazement.

Real Ventures: “Did We Really Do That?” describes our almost unbelievable but true RV experiences and hilarious tales from 1975 to the present. Our RV travel mileage is equal to three trips to the moon, or around the circumference of the earth’s equator twenty-five times! Our nine different RVs ranged in size from a cramped seventeen 17 feet for a family of six, to thirty-six feet of luxury for two. Our adventures sometimes included a pet, friends, in-laws, a newborn baby, children, teens, the elderly, or the handicapped. We camped in every state in the continental USA, every province in Canada, all over Mexico, El Salvador, Belize, Guatemala, and some of France, Italy, and Switzerland. My husband did not like to be limited to campgrounds reserved in advance, so some of our RV overnights were quite unique (or scary). Since he was a college professor wanting to see as much as possible during school holidays, he preferred to “wing it” and exit to anywhere that looked interesting: our serendipities! These travels began when we were barely thirty years of age and continue till now, at almost age eighty.
