RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

Speaking of socializing. Think we can agree most of us are part of this club. Maybe we should start using this sign instead of waviing. Truck Gang Mike Hey Mike. I think you are on to something. Maybe those of us who are social should put a "Welcome" sign on our campsite, and/or those not wanting to socialize could put an "N" sign on their site. That would make it easier to identify each other. Or :D (friendly), :( (leave me alone). As for politics? Civility has disappeared. I am certainly willing to engage in civil discourse. We can agree to disagree, but lack of discourse and, education and exchange of viewpoints just leads to further division.

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

Fascinating discussion. I am relatively new at camping only - only five seasons. Socializing is one of the main reasons I go camping. I find it a roll of the dice. On most camping trips, which are longer stays, up to a month, I find someone that enjoys socializing, as I do. Every once in a while I will find a place where interaction is minimal. I find the least social are usually the big expensive DP's, unless they are retired seasonals. It may be explained, in some cases by the fact that if they are working and can really afford those big fancy rigs, they probably have a really high stress job and just want to get away. They desire solitude. Perhaps I will try sitting closer to the road. I always sit facing the road, and wave, and say hello, to indicate willingness for interaction. If I find a place that I like, and people that I like, I will often go back to that place. One couple I met this summer, I will be camping not far from his home, next summer. He is talking about bringing his camper to join me for a weekend. So there are still a bunch of us out there that are looking to socialize and add to the number our friends. I had to laugh at lakeside013104's comment. Kindness always wins in the end. I still open the door for everybody, man, woman or child. To extrapolate from another expression, if a person acts humble, polite and kind, one does not know whether or not he is a fool. Some people by their reactions announce to the world that they are. Thus the kind person wins.

Plan a Trip section

We need the map back.Good Sam can only be used as a secondary site to check on destination spot discovered on a map on another site. GS campground ratings are also usually way too high.
