I need to know if there are any horror stories about this decision....going full time Also has anyone experienced robberies or any other type of violence on the road?? My husband says it is just as safe , but I wonder because we will have pretty much what we own in our MoHo thanks Home is where my hubby and my heart is!

I have traveled for two years - an elderly lady, on my own, with just a dog, and I have never encountered a problem on the road. I boondock a lot! Truck stops, Walmsrt, parking lots, way out in the woods, totally isolated, not even cell service sometimes. Been broken down at the side of the road. NO PROBLEMS! The only time I was hassled was a drunk fellow workamper at my place of work. I would have been safer on the road.

Three years full time and the only violence I have had is the beating I took in Dominos. LOL Really never any problems. I fact it's like this forum, people seem to eager to help and make you feel welcome. And it's easy talk to everyone because we all have a story about a trip or place.
It's just a other part of life (like after the kids left home) sit back and enjoy the trip. Learning as we go CJ

[font=Century Gothic] I travel alone and feel very safe in my MH. Other RV'ers are very welcoming and helpful. When I have a problem with something on my rig (often something I need to learn! LOL), I often can find someone in the campground who knows what to do, or can give me a hand doing it. Nicest people in the world. [/font] Janice and Bandit the Wonder Dog (& Kiwi too!)

Good point, Janice. If anyone is around when I'm wrestling the Propane tank in I have no hesitation in asking. Usually I don't even have to ask. I also have a very long awning. I have never put it up without someone running over, both women and men, asking if I need help. Maybe it's because I'm only 5.2 and I'm swinging on the end of the cord...hmm.

We have been Full-Time 7 yrs in May and never had a problem except some ninny kept letting his dog come too close to my cats in one campground. He found out I was not a push over and walked his dog elsewhere when I put my foot down. Thefts? Only once in Mexico at a rally there, two people did not lock up their RV's. Other wise I have never had a problem. On the most part most people are honest and friendly and love to help someone out.

That reminded me...was it Sharon that picked up some dog poop and dumped it outside an RV only to find out later it was the wrong RV? Still get a chuckle out of that one.

I don't have a horror story so I'm going to share a nice one. While camping in our 5er in Newport, OR with my dau and her family, my son in law was rubbernecking out the dining room window at the people next to us who were having dessert at their picnic table. He then opens the window and asks what they are eating. About a half hour later there is a knock at our door and there is the neighbor lady with a huge plate of mini chocolate covered cream puffs sprinkled with powdered sugar. She really warmed our hearts and made our tummies smile! "We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another."

Sometimes, the only right answer is silence...which in and of itself speaks a thousand words.
