Great idea and a great way to gather some ideas for cool spots to camp/visit as well.

Thanks BoldAdventure! You've managed to inspire me in many ways and this Instagram idea is yet another. Ironically, I just recently joined FB to stay in touch with friends as we soon leave on our own full-timing adventures, so am curious to know the advantages of Instagram. Is there less political and opinionated content, and just photo sharing?

Love your truck and color. I also dug the paleo breakfast big-time - I'm right there with you on having a great cook on-board and starting off each day right with a hearty breakfast. I started reading a great fitness blog about 2 years ago and its primal influence helped make me mentally, emotionally, and physically able to take on the challenge of full-timing. Have you heard of marksdailyapple.com? I highly recommend it to anyone I meet interested in improving one's fitness. I plan on researching Instagram and look forward to more inspiration whole counting down the days to departure...7.

Yup, been following Mark for awhile. Have his books too.


I feel like FB encourages you or demands of you to interact with it and over share.

IG is just photo sharing. It doesn't require me to share in order to enjoy looking at photos. It's like national geographic every day.

I'm sure someone is always making things political/opinionated. But you don't have to follow them, and people don't repost crap like chain emails.

I use an app on my iPad called Infinitgallery that just lets you browse Instagram. Once you discover tags it can be an interesting way to discover places.

Yes, tweens tag stuff stupidly, but there are photographers and others that will tag things with #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark or #utah etc and you get the idea and you can explore more photos and other people who took them.

I generally check out the #airstream tag for new people who might have interesting feeds.

When I did first join I did take random crap photos or pictures of my food. I try to be way more conscious about what I share now. And make sure it's only relevant to what I want to share. Which is travel/adventure/good living and family life on the road.

As these different hosting formats gain popularity, I think that there is a dilution of information on forums like this one. I did FB for about 90 days and bailed out when people I didn't even know wanted to "friend" me.

Perhaps it's a generational thing, but I have better things to do than constantly check electronic media.

As a side note, there are posters in Wells Fargo touting their mobile banking app showing a family at the dinner table and everyone of them is checking a smart phone!

I'm on dozens of forums. Corvette forums, expo forums, offroad forums, gun forums, this forum. I even ran my own car forum for 6 years. In my mind, forums and their predecessors the Bulletin Boards are the internets true social media. The interactions are always better, the information exchanged usually useful. I've learned how to repair my home, work on cars, rebuild a motor, find constellations, dial in my rifle, etc all thanks to forums.

What does FB offer? Endless dribble and cat pictures.

I avoid twitter and Facebook because they are endless time sinks that encourage behavior that one normally wouldn't do. And research has shown that heavy social media users actually lose the ability to do any real cognitive thinking.

A lot has been written on game theory and the use of the reward system to goad people into over sharing.

We al bemoan big government, but everyone seems content to share away with big data.

I like Instagram and I use Facebook to promote my band but other than that I don't particularly like FB. I am hoping for an invite to try ELLO.

I enjoy fb here and there with a certain core group of friends - otherwise I enjoy it to share photos and content with close family and friends

As a former journalist and somewhat reformed news junkie, the best use of Twitter I have found is when journalists covering a story are able to pretty much live tweet what is going on in situations where they really can't do a broadcast or compile an entire story to post on their news site. Of course this does require some experience, otherwise what you get lacks context and raw feed can often be fragmented and misleading, either intentionally or not.

When the Texas Rangers were being auctioned off in bankruptcy court in the late evening to early morning hours a few years ago, Anthony Andro, one of the reporters covering the event did an amazing job of posting the blow by blow with enough color and scene information to give great contextual framing.
