I just want to let you all know that I'll be putting up an informational web page on the CheapRVLiving site this week.  Then, I'll start contacting experienced vandwelling women that I know to see if they will be one of our panel members, or share their expertise at a mini session.  So, continue to stay tuned!

Thank you Suanne, I was really excited about attending my first RTR. Now I'm super excited for the opportunity to meet and hang out with more of the women. I have been traveling off and on since retirement in 2006 first with a partner and now alone. My trips have became longer and my van set up has gotten better. I have been watching YouTube videos and reading the forums to gain more knowledge and I just can't wait! I'm nervous about figuring out where to camp once I get to the RTR. Thinking it would be awesome to meet some people before hand then arrive and camp together. Are there opportunities for that?

Thanks, Bob & Suanne! Great opportunity. I'm interested in topics mentioned. The ones I need most:

Arts & crafts on the road
Mentoring after RTR
Tent pitch
Basic vehicle maintenance
Safe food storage
How to read maps...a biggie

Great addition to standard RTR!!! Heart

I think a Women's RTR is a wonderful idea, and this bit especially is pure gold.  Thank you!

Awesome idea. I have some obligations that will probably keep me from attending but I’m excited it’s starting. Maybe videos of some sessions?

Try not to be nervous about where to camp at the RTR. Just park wherever there's an open spot on the side of one of several fingers of land (long areas of higher ground between washes) at the site. You will quickly meet your neighbors, both men and women. Everyone there is friendly and helpful. You can always move after you've met some people you like.
Last year was my first RTR and I thoroughly enjoyed it and met many people. I had a new to me trailer and had never boondocked before and did fine. With a little help on some solar panels to keep my batteries charged up.

Bohemian, it's a pretty fluid space. Many people move as they find a space more to their liking or needs. Pull in and set up, but if you see a place you like better, move there.

You will meet your neighbors, which could be a good reason to move every few days. To meet more people.

jaxtonsgram, life will always throw excuses and hardships in our way. I say, if you have the time and funds to go to the RTR/Women's RTR, then go. You can get a somewhat reliable 10-day weather forecast and plan accordingly. A lot of times, people don't get a "next time" for whatever reason.
