Keeping In Touch
One of the best ways to keep in touch with fellow RVers is through social media. I like to use some of the more common social platforms, like Facebook and Instagram, to connect with and follow the people that I meet on the road. This is a fun way to keep up with new friends, see where their travels are taking them and get ideas for your own trips. Facebook Groups, in particular, are great for finding fellow RVers with similar interests and for sharing very valuable, specific information.
I also like to use Google Maps to stay in touch. While this isn’t typically used as a social app, the ‘Location Sharing’ feature allows me to see where some of my friends are and then coordinate campground meetups. Just make sure that you’re only sharing your location with a select group of trusted people.
If you do connect with someone in an online group or through social media, and you both decide to meet in person, it’s always good to practice caution. Try to meet somewhere public with other people around and set a time limit for your meeting upfront. This way, if you feel uncomfortable or aren’t feeling a connection, you can gracefully exit. However, if you do feel comfortable, then you can always ask to extend the visit or agree to meet again.
