Sure seems possible, I'm sure people have met in stranger ways and married.

There is a potential, but it is kind of like being a single tandem bike rider.

But if she's there with her TD she's gonna be attached to it... what you need to do... is build yourself a double axle teardrop with a hitch receiver on back, so it's legal in some states to tow double trailers with a truck.

Sounds difficult.

Pretty small population of people to begin with. Most events have under 20 TD, huge events are under 200. And you then are looking for singles or want to be singles within that group. If you are camping alone, I presume there is a reason. Then they have to live near each other or be willing/able to move to be near each other. Hard to image someone relocating based on a single weekend.

As a dog show person, the dog show community has similar characteristics. Actually a larger national population, easily 200,000-500,000 people, most likely bigger. People (200-2000) come together on weekends. Not too many live near each other. Often travel long distances to get there. Regularly meeting the same group of people. Some are singles, most are part of a couple traveling as singles (always a surprise to meet the other half). Most are older -- 50+ for half the population. Everyone shares common interest. However, not very many new couples out of the group.

Then again, met my eventual wife through a running club -- maybe 15-30 people total with 2-5 women. Thinking back, I recall a second couple getting together from the same group. Granted, we all lived in the same town, saw each almost every weekend, almost all of us were single, graduate students and as such were very mobile. [ maybe, the correct population is graduate students -- about 10,000; fair turn over due to graduation; about the same age; pretty equal male to female; same town for several years]

Why not. Single women camp solo, single men camp solo. Already have 2 things in common, camping and teardrops. Might have to get out to a few more gatherings to increase the chances.

I thought gatherings were just a front for swinger parties.

Funny you mention this. I once sold a tandem bike to a single guy because he thought he could use it to meet someone.

Mike, they get married at gatherings, yes, but they are planned out. The TCT (Tin Can Tourist) has wedding ceremonies often at their gatherings but they are planned ahead to give everyone there a chance to attend if they would like to. Sometimes they dress up in unconventional ways and sometimes it's traditional but more often, very unusual dress. Lots of campers attend and there are Teardroppers, vintage and not so vintage campers. It happens more often than you think. :)
