I guess I'm old fashioned, I still wave on two lanes when your eye to eye. I know some will disagree but if I can't pick my hand up for a second to be friendly I guess I don't belong behind the wheel! More than half don't wave. Oh well.

We got our MH a year and a half ago and wasn't sure about the wave thing. I like to wave so we got a Jeep!!!! :-)

Hard to see across the interstate. I am an "old" farm kid, and like to wave to everybody, but the old two lane highways much easier to see the wave. Rv'ers haven't changed, still very friendly and helpful.

I wave when safe and would say it's about 50/50 on wave backs.

I try to wave

For those of you that know ol' southern boys like me, we all wave

I've been driving this beast for a little over a year now and it is getting easier for me to wave than to weave, but sometime I'm trying not to run into ya',

but, in-case I missed...here's a wave
