Have you ever wanted to sell everything you own and just "take off?" Travel the country's back roads, paddle down a meandering stream, experience breath-taking mountain views, walk among 100-year old trees, and just marvel at America's beauty? That is the dream that my partner, Betsy, and I decided to make a reality. This blog describes our adventure. The food we eat, people we meet, sights we see, and the enjoyment we find in traveling.

Come and Join the Village

Have you checked out RVillage yet? Well, you should. This creative and fun new venture is a great way for RV'ers to meet and stay connected while on the road. RVillage is a social media opportunuity that acts as an avenue to meet others with similar interests or in the same RV park as you. 


So this is how it works. Log-on to the website and complete a personal profile (which is free and easy). When you arrive at a new campground, log-on to the website and “check-in” to the park you're staying at. You will be able to see who else is there and send them a message if you wish. 
           
One great feature of RVillage are all the “groups” that have been established. These groups help you find people with similar inerests. The myriad of groups runs a wide spectrum from “Christian Caravan” to “RV Happy Hour” to “RV Fishermen” and a whole lot in between. Can’t find a group to fit your bill? Feel free to create a new one and invite others to join in. And as they say on the website “It's not only about the places we go, it's also about the people we meet along the way.”

Here is an example of just some of the existing groups . . .

GROUP DIRECTORY


RVillage also has mapping tools that allow you to plan a route to your next destination and track your friends as they move across the country and plan future get-togethers.  We have been on RVillage for a while now and have met numerous other RVillagers. It just so happens that our next coach neighbors here in Maine (Pennye and Jerry Rose) are RVillagers as well. Once I saw their profile it was easy to start up a conversation since I already knew something about them.

RVillage is dynamic and always adding features that enhance communication between RV'ers and parks. In just a short time RVillage has grown to over 8,000 members so hurry on over to RVillage and join in.
