Despite their completely impractical nature, RVs hold a special place in my heart. Part of it is nostalgia for childhood adventures, but part of it is the sheer, ridiculous audacity of driving a house around. I love the big, stupid things, and I dream of owning one before the oil is gone, so shows like the eighteenth annual Colorado RV Adventure Travel Show are like Disneyland for me. Everything from behemoths that cost twice the value of my house to little trailers you could pull behind a compact car will be on display at the Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th Street, from 10:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. daily, today through Saturday. Throw in some seminars on camp cooking, RV safety and more, and you have three days of bliss for RV geeks. Admission is $8 for ages twelve and up, $7 for seniors 62 and over, and free for kids eleven and under, with discounts available online.

Jan. 9-12, 10 a.m.-9:30 p.m., 2008
