Hi - I'm just beginning to look into RVing as a retirement option. I live in a double wide mobile home in Auburn, AL. If the economy picks up, I can retire in 3 more years. I need information on groups of women traveling alone. I've always wanted to see the USA by land; this looks like the best way. I'm afraid of getting really lonely. I don't get lonely while I'm at home, I live alone, but I do see people I know everyday at work. Help....Text[font=Comic Sans MS]Text[/font][color=Green]Text[/color] Later,

Jean Welcome! I am not a good one to answer your question - at least not yet! I'll be on the road in a month - kind of a forced retirement due to an injury. I too am concerned about being lonely - but have been told by other women on the forum (who are FABULOUS by the way) that if one is not lonely at home, then one won't be lonely on the road. I think it will just be incumbent upon us to smile at strangers, and turn them into new found friends. There is also the phone, and the internet. I realize that I communicate with many of my current friends in this manner, and will continue to do so. I also feel I've made a lot of new friends with the women on the forum, and I'm sure you will as well! To new adventures! Kerry

Welcome to the forum ! So glad you joined us :D I travel by myself in a 5th wheel trailer - well I do have my dog Molly and my cat Murphy with me so I'm not all alone :D There are times when I've gotten very lonely, but it passes. If I try, I can usually find someone to chat with if I want to. Of course the forum helps me stay connected too !! Enjoy Trudy, Molly & Murphy 37' Montana 5th wheel - "be the kind of person your dog thinks you are"

Thanks so much. Sorry you have to retire because of an injury but looks like we both maybe making good choices. My retirement won't be much but I CANNOT go live with my children. They probably don't want it and I couldn't take it for very long.
I hope to find a tiny trailer, maybe tear-drop for the next 3 years just to check it out. Then when I retire and sell the house, I'll buy something bigger.
Again thanks for the encouragement.[font=Comic Sans MS]Text[/font][color=Green]Text[/color] Later,

Thanks. It will be an effort to go out and smile when I'm down but I see where it's something I'll have to do. I have 2 big dogs now that are very old, 13 and 10. I plan on getting a small, not yelping dog, when they die. I'm making plans even now.
Thanks for the encouragement.

Jean I thought I would have a small, not yappy dog as well - turns out I have two, and uh, they yap. I'm going to have to work on this because whenever they see a dog in a park I'm afraid they are going to make everyone nuts! Enjoy the process! Kerry

Hi Jean! Welcome to our Forum....so very happy to have you join and delighted you chose to post!
You will be amazed at how friendly people are at RV parks! Also, many parks have a full schedule of activities --- so if you want friends, they are easy to find.
I don't wish to live with our kids either, although they are wonderful people and I love the two dearly. However, having a trailer is a perfect way to see our gorgeous country--- and drop by occasionally to see the kids as well. You can have the best of both worlds!!
We travel with two litte dachshund sisters, and they have learned to be good girls in RV parks. They don't bark unless someone comes onto "our property". It's funny how they ignore people walking by, and ignore them but they know our "property boundaries" and let us know if someone encroaches. They will also ignore other dogs walking by...UNLESS one of them has fussed and told them ugly things as they strolled by. In that case, our girls will bark and tell that dog off EVERY time it is around.. Grin..
Again, Jean....WELCOME!! Hurry back and post often, we are anticipating getting to know you better!!
Happy RV Dreaming! :)
