I wave, makes me smile when someone actually waves back. Just got back from Leavenworth WA, what a great place to RV at Icicle River Resort....passed 50 plus RV's and only got one wave back after waving to at least 20. What is with thos WA state people?

Many I see seem to have a deathgrip on the wheel. I don't think they are looking anywhere but straight ahead!

I feel no need to do something because someone else thinks I need to. Friendly means staying on your side of the road so I don't have to dive into the ditch to avoid hitting you while you wave.

Maybe I'm just anti-social, but I'm a happy anti-socialist.
I'm with you. While I'm friendly and courteous when out, I'm still an anti-social type of person. It's not a snotty attitude nor an impoliteness, it's just a personality trait. I will bend over backwards to help another, but I also get tired of saying Happy New Year to every living being by 1/1/xxxx about 1 hour after I leave the house. I will say thank you to anyone for any thing, but I will not be upset if they don't reply "You're Welcome". To me, it's a "Where is your heart" type of thing... if YOU meant it, the other person's reply or lack of shouldn't hurt.

Wow, some very interesting comments! We always wave, some return the wave, some don't - we noted that in the midwest people are more likely to wave and return a wave. Some places in the south you "gotta" look closely 'cause they only use their fingers to wave.

As for snobbishness, we don't worry 'bout it - they don't know how much money we have (or don't have!) !!!

I'd bet that if it was a gorgeous young gal they were meeting, they'd SEE her quite easily, and then wave with BOTH hands, "glare" or not - and I'd also bet that those too arthritic to take one hand off that hard to control RV wheel to wave, have NO problems taking that same hand off the wheel to tune the radio, adjust their glasses - or scratch their butts - all without the slightest complaints from their better halves...

Here in friendly Oregon, we ALL wave, to every one, every time - after all, it helps keep our eyes exercised, the blood circulated, and joints all loose and flexible - and I don't recall hearing about a single accident caused by that friendly wave...

On the other hand, I do remember biking with my daughter on the back, and she wouldn't let me wave at crotch rockets, she would say " their not real bikers" lol!

When I'm on the side of the road and smoke is coming from under the hood and I see a fellow RVer I jump up and down and wave both hands over my head! . Not sure why they keep driving right on by- some wave as they pass

Did you at least enjoy the chicken leg I threw at you? It landed on the ladder rung.

What is wrong with thos (sic) WA state people? Nothing!

Why is it wrong to mind my own business, and keep my hands, eyes and focus on the road? Why would someone be so egotistical to think that if they do it, everyone else should do it or there's something wrong with them? Other posters go so far as to question non-wavers driving ability because they don't wave "like I do, because I'm so friendly and good".

Shoot, if I did start waving someone would complain because I didn't use all my fingers. (just a joke kids, just a joke)

I always wave and sometimes tap the air horns real lightly, most of the time people wave back. At the campgrounds most people are very friendly, same people are driving the Mohos.

I wave to fellow Rv'rs, sometimes I get one back, most of the time not, but that's OK, makes me feel good for trying. Corvettes used to wave all the time but not so much the last few years, especially newer Vettes. Seem like the newer Vette owners look down on the older Vettes. I had a 72' I bought new. Just sold it a few years ago.
