And when you're not traveling, you're visiting. Singles spend less time in the rig.

There may be boring moments, but no different than spending the same amount of time alone at home. I love being in the MH, being on the road and driving. It would be more fun to share the experience with someone, but I would not forgo the experience for lack of companionship in it. I try to meet people and develop friends at campgrounds and in the RV community. I have actually made some very nice ongoing friendships with other RVers already, and I have only been out for five and a half summers, with no toad even. It definitely is what you make it.

I guess for conversation sake : Are you traveling solo ?
If yes are you lonely?

We have a friend whose wife died quite a few years ago. He travels all winter long up and down the Florida Keys and I think he has more friends now, that he meets at various parks, then he had when his wife was alive

I think, we’re all a community that can unite under one goal. we need to support everyone and everyone under this premise. Solos and couples and families should all live with each other, in the same campgrounds. None of us should be an outcast. We are already friends. This is the future, as people get displaced all over the us we need to be United as one.

After my wife died I found solo traveling a good way to go. I could let the grief surface when it needed to and get used to not having a constant companion. Almost two years later I’m looking forward to traveling again with my new sweetheart once we’re fully vaccinated and things open up. While solo I discovered audio books and loved them for those long stretches of interstate.

I found exits on the interstate were good cry stops, and long stretches were good for reflection.

Sorry for your loss and happy you are carrying on.

Back when I drove a pretreatment truck, radio mistery theater was my thing. When I lost my wife I couldn't drive and follow a story line at the same time.

I travel both solo and with my older sister. I'm 42 and she is 46. We get along famously. I love the time I get to spend with her and she knows it. We both also highly value our time alone. For this reason(and because I love motorcycles), I have a KLR650 on the bus I can ride anytime the weather is good.

I like being alone too. Nothing like being around someone who just doesn't know how to shut up. I don't do well being around a motor mouth. It's exhausting. Being alone just proves you really don't need to have someone with you, although at times it is very nice to have someone else there.

My two cents, but this is what works for us. Both of us are single and like it that way. Nothing like having ultimate freedom to do whatever you want, when you feel like it. I might go get on my goldwing and take a rip!!!

What I have learned about traveling solo with a pet (dog in my case) is that the pet wins. It's all about them and you better get ready for a lot of walks since you can't let the dog run free. I think I have to take my dog for 7 walks a day for her to do her business (she likes to pee on any scent) starting at 6A and ending around 8P.
I don't mind leaving the dog alone in the coach for a couple hours, with the AC running to keep her cool, but that is the longest I'll leave her alone (Cats are probably different).

I forgot to add that I travel with my two German Shepherd's. One is 9 years old and the other is a year and a half. They are my buddies. Never lonely. I usually stop about every 2 hours or less to take a break and stretch my legs/get a sandwich. If my sister is with me she will take care of the dogs while I take care of myself. If not, I take care of the dogs no problem.

I try and take them to do fun things. For example, I love finding a good clean RV park on a lake. The dogs love to get in the water and cool off just like we do, so I will load a cooler and go down to the lake with my 2 girls and return when my cooler is empty. It's pretty fun!

Your never alone if you have a good dog.
My Lab is a great dog but he can't tell me how far it is to my next exit or what that weather alert blaring on my phone is all about.
