Thanks Bold for the words of encouragement. I need to look for down to earth country girls, instead of the materialistic city ones. Yes gifts to family. Facebook enlighten me on the vacations my brother had over the years. I then realized I had been played...a hard pill to swallow. I treat everyone the way I like to be treated, then go from there. Life is full of surprises, so you never know what lies ahead. Maybe someday, I'll find someone who realizes that a wink with a smile means, I love them. Sorry about the above post, I forgot the forums wasn't my therapist. Thanks Ray for the thread

Streaminwild,
I hear you, and your Golden Rule philosophy is commendable. Let me urge you...do not let the disappointments you have experienced cause you to change who you are.

We have all had disappointing experiences with supposed friends and, yes, even family. When we trust...only to be betrayed...it hurts. There are givers and there are takers in this life. No relationship that is a one way relationship is worthy of your grief. Love is wonderful when the feelings are two sided. A one sided love hurts far more than loneliness.

Be proud of who you are and value your good attributes. I hope that one day soon you will find that lady who can love as she is loved. Stay true to yourself...live a happy and satisfying life...go where you may find someone who shares your interests...and one day...

ColoradoLady What are your rates because your advise is priceless. I consider this forum my family now. The commandery here to help one another... words cannot describe. As Ray thread questions people traveling solo. Yes, but most not by choice. Watching the sunset at the beach or mountaintop with your best friend...I can only hope. Sorry for the hijack Ray.

You are most welcome. Travel Solo, get a dog for a companion....dogs love unconditional....sit with your dog at that sunrise/ sunset...spoil that dog...they love to be touched, and will return love in kind ...they are loyal and happy for your kindness and affection.
Go to AS gatherings, to single ones if available....connect with people (male and female) who share your interests...do you like photography, painting, fishing, kayaking, hiking,etc? Open up for friendships...then, build on those friendships and respect...and one day....(see?)

While in Tampa last week I met a group of people called Loners on wheels. They travel together and seemed to be having a grand time. http://www.lonersonwheels.com/
They were quick to tell me this was not a dating service. It was for people who were single by choice,widowed or divorced. They all travel in their own rigs. More of a support group. I thought it was great. One lady had been doing it fir 15 years since her husband died.

I just looked at the LoW's web site and they appear to be quite the active group. There are gatherings almost every week based on the seasonal weather. In the summer, the northern groups are more active. In the winter, the southern groups are certainly active.

Florida has several groups/units and each of them has a gathering almost every month during the fall, winter and spring. As a seasonal traveler you could go from gathering to gathering with a little sightseeing in between and have a great time exploring!

Thanks for posting this. We'll pass it on to others who may be interested.

Ray has suggested that I move on my idea of ...SOLO TRAVELER's CLUB! I mulled it over and just opened up a new thread...called....SOLO TRAVELER's CLUB! Take a look at it and give me some responses. There are many of us. Let's see where this idea goes! Evelyn.
P.S. It is under Airstream Lifestyles.

I just want to say I'm glad to be able to share this forum with people like streaminwild and ColoradoLady and all the others that strike me as good people! At times I feel like quality people are in somewhat short supply.

If you start a solo bunch, remember some of us who solo are married, else you have a singles club.

Traveling Solo

Thank you CAV! It was great hearing from another woman who is doing it alone! I have to sell my house first before I can by a vintage tin can, but I can't wait and hope to be out of here by May.....this is a great thread! I am encouraged that I can do it. I am 63 and my friends think I am crazy, but I hear the calling..I am an old hippie who can't seem to stay in one place too long, before I have to go! Rving seem to be my answer, although I have never done it. I love the idea of taking my home where ever I go. Is there a book or website to find out where all the rally's are? I love the idea of meeting up with like minded people along the way..I also want to go to music festivals along the way! I think someone could start a match up service on this site...whether it be for love or just traveling companions! Happy trails!

Pecan man, rubyredskies...I just opened a thread called SOLO TRAVELER's Club. Look in forums, under Airstream Lifestyles. It is for anyone..no gender, age, restriction. It is not a dating site, so, of course, all are welcome. Actually, you don't have to be solo. As said....ALL are welcome. It is not a singles club...it is an opportunity to meet other likeminded travelers, share a cup of coffee, etc., share some travel stories, enjoy companionship. Make some new friends, camp or travel in caravan, if you like. It's all up to you, and those you connect with.

Ijustlee, glad to hear from you. We are not unusual...I have found that majority of folks who are campers, are good and decent people. This is certainly one of the benefits of Airstream ownership and of travel and camping. I have yet to meet an unfriendly fellow camper. Welcome!
