  • "Solo" use to be my vanity license plate my tweeter acc is solos and I plan on going on the road Solo, soon! But, I have panic attacks if I think I am lost. I got lose in the woods once and developed the habit of 'panic attacks' I can't seem to shake, so that will be a challenge. Yes, garage men will take advantage, it happens too often, not only garage men but, most men I have worked for me, if they try to pull something, they don't come back, I've gone through dozens of dishonest workers They name me the Bxtch for good reason

  • I love the fact that they don't stop living their passion just because their partners don't share the same feelings. Inspiring & great tips. 👍

  • Such wonderful ladies! Thank you for sharing your stories and tips with us.
    Lisa I am so sorry for loss of your husband Bill. I know how difficult it can be to lose your loved one. If there is ever a trip you feel two would better than one let me know 🙂
    God Bless all the ladies traveling alone and keep them safe.

  • actually you are in more danger in your own home than you are on the road, sadly. i have been on the road for years and never had any trouble. but i have pulled up camp in the middle of the night in my pj's because it didn't feel right. all these ladies said the same thing, trust your instincts and be aware of your surroundings.

  • I really loved this. I so much want to get a Class B van, grab a couple of my dogs, and go explore. But my husband would NEVER do this. I never thought about doing this on my own. This gave my dream some wings. Thank you to the ladies who shared their stories, and you so much putting it all together and posting this.

  • What a great video segment. I grew up camping, if my dad had to work or didn’t want to go, my mom would pack all 4 of us girls and we would head out for our adventure. My husband is not much of a camping person, but this video has given me the insight to maybe venture out on my own for a little. Thank you for doing this video. And safe travels to you and your husband.

  • I am a solo wilderness traveler. The one thing that I would recommend is a PLB, personal locater beacon. If you are in an area without cell service, the unit uses satellite to send SAR, Search and Rescue. It is to be used only in a life and death emergency. I have the ACR ResQLink+ on my person. I am a paddler and backpacker but any remote area without cell service you may need it. Then you can go ahead and take that night hike! You can use a SPOT or InReach to send messages or to get SAR to your location but those come with a monthly fee. The ACR is a one time purchase and replacement of battery every 7 years. I did a video on the ACR.

  • I lost my husband 2 yrs ago this next Feb. He had spent a year before he got ill remodeling a Toyota Dolphin.our plan was to do a lot of camping the next summer. When he passed I gave the camper away, too many memories and "together" plans. After a year of being solo, I began looking for a camper I could manage on my own. Still looking. My plans? Keep moving and see those sights we had planned on seeing together, for him and for me. Glad to hear there are solo women out there.

  • RE: Vehicle repairs. I've had quite a few run-in's with crooked mechanics, even at the dealership. I'd say about 10% of the times I've taken a vehicle in, I've had someone try to scam me. IDK if it's because I'm female, or because they are simply crooked and they try scamming everyone, male or female. In most cases I suspect it's the latter.

  • Lisa, good for you! By the way, your lovely voice and accent is reminiscent of Kathy Bates….a Southern Kathy Bates. PS She is also an avid RVer.
