Welcome GWM, I retired in 2006, have a used 22ft Class C. I haven't been anywhere yet. I am making the big leap, after June 1. I am on my way to getting someone to help me gain confidence with the driving. I am busy planning my route. I am in Louisiana so I just want to get to somewhere cooler. Let us know what you are looking at and what type of RV you have always wanted. olive

Welcome GWM. There are lots and lots of us who travel alone. Start looking at all kinds of RVs to get an idea what you want. I always suggest buying one that is at least one year old to avoid the huge depreciation of a new rig. Sit in the driver's seat and see how you feel. I found Class A's intimidating to me and I ended up buying a Class C, 31' and I tow a Saturn cause you can tow it wheels down easily. I agree that if you get tired of driving pull over; fix lunch, get on the internet, take a nap then get back on the road. There are days I only drive 150 miles and others I drive 400. Just depends on how I feel. I just turned 67 so I like my naps. I LOVE having my very own bed, kitchen and bathroom and having my two dogs with me. As you can tell from reading the forum we all love the RVing lifestyle.

You're right Karen, I don't think there is anyone on this forum who hates being on the road! We've had some gals who have had to give it up for awhile but they did not leave because they did not like it they left because they needed to work.
Once you get over the nervousness you'll love it. Don't like the view or your noisy neighbor? You can be ready to hitch up and move to another site or campground in less than an hour...surely can't do that in a stick house!
Some people ask us "How often do you move around?...teasingly my hubby says " When the grass is too tall!"
You'll find alot of nice people out on the road and in the campgrounds..why....because they feel relaxed out there. It feels wonderful to just sit outside and listen to the crickets, see the Moon and all the stars. Ever see a meteor shower out in the middle of nowhere? Fantastic light show!!
I will say it does help if you are a chatter box, people who are very very shy have a hard time adjusting because they don't start the conversations. Me I'm a chatterbox and never shut up! lol

My Mom hated that I never shut up, even had a teacher tape my mouth shut! I thought it was funny instead of a punishment. Anyway I told my Mom sorry for being such a hyper active kid but God made me that way so I can make friends easily in my Adult life. Oh I think we'd have a ball together and others will join because they don't want just "Us" having all the fun!

Hi, Getting my little Pleasure-Way first week of June. It is a 2006 Excel wide body RD.
Looking forward to taking it on some shakedown trips this summer....and going to the solo women convention in the fall.
I hope to meet many of you on my travels...and appreciate all you have to share.

Mary, I'd like to know more about the solo women's convention and also about your Pleasure Way as that is one of the class Bs I've been interested in. You have your PM turned off so I couldn't email you personally but mine is on so if you'd like to talk that way please feel free. Send/post any pictures, too. Lenora

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

Is the convention the RVing Women Convention in Charleston, SC in September? If it is, it should be a great convention. I attended the one in Lodi last year. Also, if that is the one, look for Fernie as Flossie Floozie. Patty

Patty and Sammie, too.
