Kay and Al Aguilar of Pueblo, Colorado, are in their 6th year as campground hosts at the Apgar Campground near the west entrance of Glacier National Park.
Kay, a retired physical education college professor, and Al, a former manager of a men’s clothing store, began tent camping in 1982. “But,” said Kay, “I was not a happy camper when the tent got wet.” During one rainy camping trip in 1990 Kay saw a little motorhome roll by.
“I pointed at it and said: ‘I want one of those,'” said Kay. Within a year, the Aguilars were camping in a 1990 Winnebago Warrior built on a Toyota chassis. “That rig was like a Swiss Army Knife. I wish they still made them.”
Today the Aguilars drive a 2004 32-foot Fleetwood Southwind. During the winters they volunteer with the Habitat for Humanity Care-A-Vanners working in Alice, Texas. “They are a small affiliate and wonderful people,” said Kay.
