I used to sign up on various discussion forums, but I simply don't have the patience for wading through the useless posts and the lack of moderation. Drives me crazy, so for the most part I just avoid them now. I have tried two facebook groups recently, but I'm pretty much done with them now too.
Some of the discussion just makes you shake your head. Check this out...
The one group is called "Boondocking and free camping USA".
I had figured this would be about finding great free campsites. But a lot of the posts are from younger hippy type people who think boondocking is finding a residential street to park on in Philadelphia.
I open up the page this morning, and here is the first post...
How long can you go / do you think is safe to go (maybe indefinitely?) / can you go without others noticing, without taking a shower and only using wet wipes?
And I tried the "Internet for RV'ers" forum. But these people are all techies who use 40 or 50 GB per month and have unlimited plans. Not sure what I was expecting to learn there, but they did have one interesting discussion about Windows 10 and the fact that the automatic download will use up 4 GBs of data. And that when you do get Windows 10, you are not able to turn off automatic updating. No, there will be no windows 10 for us.
Then, there is the "On the Road in Mexico" facebook forum where half the people are concerned about "safety" and the other half are people who live in Mexico because they can afford to have hired help there.
I just checked in there, and the first post I read has people saying how you should be paying fruit and veggie vendors double (!) what they are asking. No wonder gringos get taken advantage of. These are just not my type of travelers.
There is a lot of good information on the internet, but there sure is a lot of crap as well!
