Your the Good Son! I have family in Rouses Point so I dispute the farthest North and East claim.

I am 29 and my husband is 34. We are selling the house and buying a camper at the end of this year. I am a CPA and can work on the road and husband will take care of our 2 girls ( 2&4). Can't wait to have more freedom! I hope I still count since I am still a dreamer

Although we loved our new coach, we were a bit disappointed in many of the RV parks we stayed in, and with many of the other RVers we met on our 3 month trip. We are a young, active couple that enjoys sporting events, entertainment, and doing things. Unfortunately, while most of the people we met were very nice, ALL (with the exception of one couple we met) were older--if not in age, in spirit--, cliquish, and very "set in their ways". Most were on multiple pharmaceuticals and tethered to their doctors at home. Most were "early to bed", and seemed to prefer hibernating in their coach or going to the local restaurant to eat and drink coffee to getting out and doing fun activities. Both my husband and I felt like we were caught in a "generation gap". All of these people seemed to have one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel. Many were having to contemplate selling their coaches due to medical problems. At one of the get-togethers we went to, they were actually discussing having a line item in their club budget to send flowers for "member deaths or deaths of members' spouses"!
We SO much want to find a YOUNGER group of people to travel with but are totally stumped as to how to find these people. We KNOW we can't be the ONLY ones out there that feel this way!! Does ANYBODY have any suggestions?
Hi there I know how you feel. I am 39 and my wife is 41, we are both air traffic controllers in Hampton GA. We live just south of you in Mcdonough. We too just got a motorhome last July when we traded in our airstream. We get about 5 weeks off a yr and travel as much as we can, and on our weekends. Anyway I'm Steve and my wife is Aleece, we can be reached at [moderator edit]. Oh we are going to the ga good Sam rally in perry next week to see what hat is all about.

We are working on it! I need 3 more monthly customers to afford it but we should be in an rv at the end of this year. Very few weeks I try to convince my husband to just do it now and live off our savings .

I suggest you try to find different parks. Public parks are filled with people of all ages.

State park we camped at last weekend was at least 50% under 40, tons of kids biking and playing everywhere.

Greetings all! I'm currently 39 and my partner just turned 40. We've been on the road full time since 2006, and have traveled in three different RVs so far. (16' teardrop, 17' fiberglass egg and now a 35' vintage bus conversion).

We work remotely as software developers - both for our clients, and we write some mobile apps. We also pick up fun odd jobs along the way to keep things interesting.

On our blog, we have list of links to other 'younger' full time RVers - there are lots and lots of us blogging about life on the road (and probably many more who don't blog.)

Best wishes,
- Cherie

I'm 45 and my DH is 57(well til the end of the month It's his BD) we both work he is a diesel mechanic and has 4 weeks vacation. He comes camping in the spring and fall when cool with an occasional weekend with family during summer. I work for a deaf school and have a strange work schedule but it means that during the school year I usually get a 3 day weekend every other week and I try (don't always get to) go at least 1(3day) trip every two month for fun and to relax.

OK I’ll have to admit I am really bad with acronyms. What is DW & DH? I get the husband wife part, but what does the D stand for?

I am 54 & DW is 55. DW is a traveling nurse, she is full time in the motor home and works mostly13 week assignments. She is currently in Leesburg FL until the end of the month. She considers herself a working Snowbird. I am a mechanic for a major airline. Mostly I travel each week to where ever she is working. We both work 3 day work weeks and sometimes our schedules are the same. DW has been traveling for over 6 years and in an rv for the past 4. We recently upgraded from a 2004 Coachman class A Gasser to a 2013 Winnebago diesel pusher 42'. We are putting the s&b up for sale this spring and we will both be full timing. I will be looking for a crash pad for the days I need to be at work.
