I have been a member of numerous forums including topics such as RV camping,photography,bodybuilding and strength,hobbies and air brushing.
I have also bought and sold hundreds of items off craigslist meeting alot of people in person.
I have learned that people are for the overwhelming majority nice,honest,polite,caring and always looking for a little interesting conversation and a new friend. We all do keep our guard up a bit though.
Twice I met up with multiple families off my Rv forum and spent the weekend all together without ever meeting anyone (risky huh!).I have never been so pleased and made many friends that we try and keep in touch and try to meet at Rv places.
The people here are no different.
