Reader Poll: How old are you?

Are you a youngster, an oldster or an in-betweenster?

RVtravel.com has traditionally attracted a 55+ audience. There have been plenty younger than 55, and many in their 70s and 80s. The biggest group has always been in their 60s.

But now, when we look at the statistics of who is visiting our website, we see a lot of younger folks. While we do not track readers like Facebook or Google, we do learn very general things, like their sex and ages. That’s pretty much it.

It’s been awhile since we asked you your age, so let’s give ‘er another shot. So, how old are you?

Thanks for responding — much appreciated.

That’s the main fault I find with FL, it’s full of old people. When I was a trucker we referred to FL as God’s waiting room, looking around I can see why. Lol

I just turned 56 in April of this year. I am hoping once I retire I can go camping more if my body lets me. I just gave up a physical labor job stacking green lumber to driving city cab. Driving is pretty easy on my body.

75 tomorrow the 12th of June. And I still love my RV, Eagle Cap 950 mounted on a Ram 3500. We love traveling to new destinations and I always bring my Rad Mini ebike to go exploring. Will continue this lifestyle until someone takes my keys away. But with the price of diesel lately, going long distances is not so appealing.

Thank you Diane, I appreciate the acknowledgement. How did I get here so fast and I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up!

In your next age poll, please include a “I’m in my 90’s (or older)” category. Thank you!

My wife and I are in our mid 70’s and hope to be able to continue to rv into our mid 80’s.

Looks like your answer is no. It’s still the 50-80s. My thinking it will stay there. Heading into retirement of already there. Example is my older son is 28 and told him about Rvtravel his comment was what for. Some day you wish you had with all the knowledge passed on. He grew up camping tents to RV helped and watched and a DYI kid. So if RV Travel is around 20+ years from now maybe. He’ll replace me in that cycle.

Hi, Jim. That makes me think about when people complain about getting older. I just tell them that it’s better than the alternative. Have a great day! 😀 –Diane

How Old Are You
Yesterday I would have voted in the 70’s, today I voted in the 80’s.
One day does make a difference. LOL.

for some reason I am no longer able to see the actual input spot on your polls. I can not input or see the results. What gives?

As my dad always said when I missed the nail with the hammer, you’re not holding your mouth right. Lol

Sorry you’re having probems with the polls, Michael. I haven’t heard of anyone else having the issue that you are. If you can see the poll, all you have to do is tap or click on the line with the option you want. To see the results even without voting, you can just click on the button at the bottom to “See results.” If you can’t do any of the above, it must be something in how your device is set up, i.e., filters blocking those options or something. I’m not techy at all, so that’s just a guess. Sorry to not be of more assistance. Take care. 😀 –Diane
