I gather a lot of couples do this, and single men. But it takes moxy for single women to go 'round full timing, right? Just curious.

We are camping in Gila Bend, AZ at Augie's Quail Trail RV Park. There are three women here that travel alone. One has a class A motor home, one has a very large 5th wheel and the other has a class C. We had a cake and ice cream social in the rec. hall this afternoon and they all were having the time of their lives. Yes, women can and do RV alone and have fun doing it.

My grandmother did this for a time. As a single gal beyond that certain age, she LOVED it. The company was always great, she saw beautiful scenery, and those she met were full of piss n' vinegar, just like her.

I traveled alone with two small children until I met my husband who fell in love with the life style and now that the children are grown, I have someone to travel with and share. As a single traveler, I tried to stay invisible to avoid problems so I believe there are a lot more out there then most know about.

Hi,

This is something I think about doing in the future...how did you "stay invisible?'

There are at least 3 solo ladies in the RV park I'm currently in.
They don't seem concerned about safety, often see them out and
about, drinking coffee at the office etc. 2 of the ladies have came
over and introduced themselves when I was sitting outside my
Casita drinking coffee.
I think anytime you are staying in a commercial RV park you
have nothing to worry about.
Staying in a state park or at a truck stop may or may not be
different, I don't have enough experience in that area to say.

We are staying at Park Sierra in Coarsegold, CA this weekend. There are 60 single gals, 20 single men, and 175 couples full timing here. This is Stage Coach Days, the annual celebration of the start of this park.

All kinda of activities and demonstrations going on. Lori is doing a Dutch Oven demonstration for 100 people in about an hour. Everyone will get samples. She is cooking about 7 dutch ovens full of food. YUM.

Check out Sisters on the Fly (AKA Cowgirl Caravan) at http://www.sistersonthefly.com/
I don't know how many are full-timers but there are a lot of them & they seem to have a great time!

Look at the trailer photos for some really creative & fun designs too.

Cool

"I intend to be one. I don't know about moxy. I just want to get outta here."

Amen, sister. I can't wait to leave this job and hit the highway. My fantasy is heading out 5 minutes after I retire (in 1 year, 11 months, 3 weeks, 8 hours, 13 minutes, and 9 seconds) and not even knowing where I'm headed. I won't have any clocks or watches onboard, and everyone I meet will have to check theirs at the door! I'll be a young and free 65 years old! Yahoo!

I'll come back in about 6 months and take my kids and grandkids on road trips. Them will be the days.
