WINTER 2010

Deadline: February 1, 2011 Questions: Call Laurel Volberding 630-240-8058 or 847-727-8058

Are You Connected? Remember the good ‘ole days when surfing was done at the beach, tweeting was something birds did, chatting was done over a cup of coffee, posts were for holding up fences and a mouse was something you didn’t want in your house! But of course back then you couldn’t shop from your easy chair or know what your grade school friend was having for dinner. Have you ever been Facebook’d or tweeted? Do you post your adventures on YouTube? Do you just like to LOL (laugh out loud) every now and then or send a text or two? Well if you’re between 45 and 80, chances are you’ve ventured into the world of Social Networking. Over 58% of those between 45-70 are now using some form of social networking and are the fastest growing segment of users. This doesn’t even include all the husbands who hi-jack their wife’s account! In fact recent numbers show that Facebook, by population, would be the world’s 5th largest country! So what is social networking? It’s really just a way for people to stay connected to family and friends. You can share pictures of a recent vacation, write about your latest adventure or tweet (posting a short message) about everything from daily activities to life changing events. You can reconnect with friends from high school or just keep up with the grandkids activities. There are hundreds of groups dedicated to particular activities and interests such as Prevost Owners Group, an online

community dedicated to sharing information about all things Prevost. From lifestyle to maintenance, they discuss it all. In fact, social networking is quickly becoming just another part of the daily routine for hundreds of millions of people across the globe. It’s estimated that over 20% of our time online is now spent logging our activities on Facebook, tending our virtual farms or Tweeting our thoughts. Special features like “tagging” pictures lets you know when someone has posted a picture of you, hopefully a flattering one! Or you can send a virtual hug or bouquet of flowers and quite possibly never forget a birthday again. The RV lifestyle makes staying connected to friends and family a challenge. While most are quick to make new friends along the way, it’s easy to disconnect as you pack up and move on. Now you can exchange an email address or profile info and keep in touch until your paths cross again. And don’t think for a moment you’ll miss that grandbaby’s first steps. Chances are, the video is already posted on YouTube. We at Millennium know a good thing when we see it. We have recently enhanced our website, giving you even more of what you love, including all the bells and whistles of social networking. It’s kind of like Millennium on steroids, except without all the hostility! LOL! We’ve beefed up our photo gallery by adding thousands of additional pictures, and 10 times as many videos, including the extremely popular “Tours by Vonna” and Holiday videos. You can read staff bios, checkout where we’ve been, where we’re off to next or just read about our latest rally and even

sign-up for the next one. Our “Favorite Getaways,” with an interactive map, shows our favorite RV resorts across the country. Then check out our “Featured Resort” to see what makes are monthly pick so special. As you shop for a new coach you’ll want to practice your design skills with our Floorplan Designer or checkout our large selection of New and Pre-owned coaches all featuring picture & video highlights. When you see a coach you like, leave us a comment, we always like to hear your thoughts and ideas. As you know, we’re big on technology, so we’ve dedicated multiple areas to keep you updated on the technological innovations that set Millennium apart. We even have an “Ask the Expert” page that you can submit questions to our resident Guru & Commander in Chief, Nelson! Social media is quickly becoming one of the most effective ways of getting information to those who have an interest in what we do. So if you happen to be in the dwindling group of those who haven’t yet jumped on the bandwagon, grab a friend or neighbor to help you get started. It won’t take long before you realize just how much you’ve been missing. If you’re a social media veteran, then we hope you enjoy our website’s new style and take advantage of all the new interactive features. Facebook us, send us a Tweet or give us a “Like”, however you do it, stay in touch!

CONNeCtiONS!

Nothing brings a smile to our face faster than hearing, “Mossey and Linda are coming!” We could hang out with them all day! Mossy is possibly the funniest person you’ll ever meet and just when you think you know Linda you’ll discover that her grandmother smoked a pipe. Full-timing for 5 years now, chances are you’ll run into them eventually. Take a moment to get to know Mossey and Linda, you’ll be glad you did! Linda & Mossey

1). Hometown(s): Mossey and Linda are originally from Pennsylvania, but have spent 20 years in Florida. Now it’s wherever the road takes them, with only semi-permanent spots in Pennsylvania and at their children’s home in Florida. 2). How long have been RVing? “We actually have been Full-timers for 5 years, although we just did sell our home in Florida last May.” 3). What do you enjoy most about your Millennium? “Mossey and I love the people and the way our Millennium feels like home. We love the way Millennium Luxury Coaches is so open to create changes for each individual to have their personal touch to their own “home on wheels.” 4). What are some of your favorite places to go in your RV? “Linda and I love the journey the most! We enjoy pulling into a new area and having the freedom to decide if we want to stay and explore! It’s not the actual place, as much as the friends we meet and the fun we have that makes it a favorite place to go.” Mossey summed it up by saying, “There is nothing like taking your home to a place you have never been, and then taking all the time you want to see everything you want.” 5). Who likes to drive and who likes to direct? “We both like to drive! But we usually never drive to far at one time! We have an unwritten rule ‘Always stop for Happy Hour.’ That’s one of the benefits of retirement; very few schedules!” 6). Most memorable moment RV ing? “Our most memorable moments usually include trying to park a 45’ RV into a 30’ spot! We do however enjoy all types of parks and making new friends along the way. During Thanksgiving one year, we stopped in at a small park heading to Highway 95. Some fellow RVers invited us to join them and their family, that lived locally, to a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. It was a great day! We found ourselves thankful again that we belong to such a wonderful group of people known as RVers! As we look back over the years, we realize that the quiet extended times and the unplanned places we have stopped at, have been the ones we have enjoyed the most, even more than going to the ‘must see places’.” 7). Hobbies – “We do love to travel on land or at sea. We like to go on one or two cruises and/or take a vacation each year. We also like to golf and read.” 8). Other interesting facts- “We are both into yoga!” Mossey is known as a history buff and Linda is in the process of writing a book. “We love to be able to sleep in and wake up leisurely! We absolutely love our new job…..Retirement!! And by the way, we are very good at it!” Mossey and Linda, you certainly are living the Good Life…..thanks for having us along for the ride!

Taylor

“Howdy,” I’m Tucker! I’m 3 years old and I was born in San Antonio Texas. My baby sister, Taylor, is 20 months old and she was born in Buenos Aires Argentina. We live with our parents, Brian and Susan in San Antonio! Taylor is definitely a “daddy’s girl” and always wants to hang out with him. Every day she gets to go to work with our parents and ride in the front seat of the car! They always stop at Starbucks (mama’s favorite place) and see our friends. Mom and Dad bought us a Millennium so we can go on vacations with them. We like to lie under the table, sleep at the foot of the bed and watch TV in our beds when we are in the salon. Taylor loves all her toys, especially the squeaky ones. But she won’t let me play with them! She is so soft and affectionate but don’t be fooled, she’s tough! She loves to chew on rocks, yes, real rocks! And boy does she love to eat. Her favorite snack is Green Beans. As for me, I’m a mama’s boy and proud of it!! I’m very active and like to stay in shape by chasing anything that moves quickly, like our 7 yr old sister Kiki, a long haired cat. But I would never hurt her; I’m a very gentle brother. My parents think I’m funny when I’m contemplating my next move; they say I stand like a “linebacker.” I enjoy chewing on my bones and if I find anything on the floor I’ll pick it up and give it to mom or dad. I share everything with Kiki and Taylor, even my favorite crunchy apple treats. When I’m not on the run, my favorite pastime is sleeping and I love a good walk in the park, but my greatest love is my mama! We are so happy we have a Millennium. Now we can always be together!
