Video: “Five lessons I learned in 5 years of RVing”

In this video, she shares the top five lessons she’s learned in her travels. Actually, she tosses in a sixth lesson, as you will see if you click the video.

I quit watching Carolyn’s channel when she became so political. One thing she does well is talk for 15 minutes when she could have said it in 3.

Really enjoyed this video, so many tidbits I can relate to, many by reading in between the lines! My partner and I have had many opportunities to delight in the saying ‘one plus one is waaaay more than two’.

Stunning to hear someone declare they don’t have any friends to hang out with after 5 years of RVing. RVing literally makes it easy to find adult friends and acquaintances all over the country, at least from my experience over the same period of time and situation. And yes, as Benny says, there are groups which are a good way to get started building a network of friends. It doesn’t take much internet searching to find them.

RV travel seems to have a lot of folks who know how to find information by either going out and doing, asking friends, or looking things up on the internet.

But I guess there are also people out there who stumble around, viewing each others weblog videos, and sharing re-inventing the wheel.

I think its easy for some to miss the points conveyed in number six. But Carolyn seamed honest and wants to share the experience of life in an RV. Everything is right with that. I recommend she check out the convergences with xcapers. Great people (couples mostly, but some solo) full & part timers who work while RVing. They get together a few times a year and share thier RV and work life on the road. Its a welcoming community. Just a thought.

Glad I went to the comments first. Half hour of my time better spent on the rest of RV travel news.

Wow! Some people can take 28 minutes to tell me 5 minutes worth of information.

I know eh? All I need is the info short and sweet with any links that they have. As a side note, it gets pretty old fast watching people mess with their hair all the time. Filming in the desert, try wearing a hat.

Yes, she goes a long way to say very little. I used to watch her channel some. But her political add-ins drove me away. I thought surely this topic would be free of that, but no. One of the things she says she learned is (paraphrasing): Wow! People in red states are nice! Who’d a thought it!
