Do you video chat with friends or relatives?

It’s easier than ever to stay in touch with friends and family these days. We all have Facebook accounts and YouTube blogs and personal blogs and “Track my RV!” GPS trackers. FaceTime, of course, has changed the way we communicate (it makes you miss people less, doesn’t it?) and in more recent times, Zoom and Skype keep us in touch too.

How do you keep in touch with your friends and relatives when you’re on the road? Do you video chat (and by video chat we mean FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, etc.) with them?

Please vote in the poll below and tell us. It may take a moment to load.

We have a weekly Zoom session for family across the country, Participation ranges from 4 to 20 any given week. I have a working committee at the Coop we belong to – we meet 3 times a week for trouble shooting and for a major project. Plus the BOD of the coop has it’s open meetings on zoom as needed. Seems I am on Zoom a couple of times a day on average.

We use Zoom, Hangout and FaceTime to stay in touch.

I finally found out how to use face time this last March when my wife was in the hospital with chest surgery and due to COVID-19 I couldn’t go see her. We’re in our senior years so we are ignorant to most modern forms of communication, we do good just texting our children and grandchildren.

My wife is hearing impaired and depends on lip reading. So, yes we video chat often.

I would love to but can’t because of poor internet speed. We do use Marco Polo videos so I can see how much the kids are growing as they go about their play.

The different groups that we belong to that are unable to meet right now are meeting regularly on Zoom. I love that we can at least still stay in touch.

I belong to a ham radio club “FRRL” and. We have our monthly meetings with zoom. We have between 35 – 40 members. Works very well. Not as good as in person, but close.

Yes we use video chat a lot because we are deaf and use to sign language to our friends

Love that technology can bring that to you, while you’re out on the road.
