Yes, RVers contribute to society. Tourism is the major industry in many places, you help support their industry. There are many other ways they contribute. Don't worry about the manager's comments.


Excellent response. Also, may RV'ers volunteer their time to various causes, etc.... 99% of people contribute something to society - I truly believe this.


Happy Travels!

I hope you didn't work directly for this person. Sounds like a controlling jerk. It is no one's business how or if you contribute to anything. That's the problem now days, everyone wants to dictate what you should or shouldn't do. Tell him to lay off the lemons for breakfast and get a life LOl


I agree 100%

I would tell him I don't contribute a single thing and I don't have to justify my life or lifestyle to anyone.

What I would not mention is the fact that I have spent most of my life being a productive member of socity and now that I am retired I have earned the right to live out my remaining time on this earth doing whatever pleases me.

I agree with you. DH and I are both retired Air Force. We have spent over half our lives living and promoting the motto "service before self." I have to say, we are tired. It's time to focus on "us" for a while. We do, still contribute to charities, our community and our country by paying taxes promptly and voting. Now, it's time to go camping and exploring our wonderful country.

Don't let one person's view distort your goals for happiness.

I think that we ALL contribute by passing on our knowledge,encouragement and kinship on this forum. As campers or RVers we instill in our children the importance of respect for the planet and others, and that, carries into their lives in the world when they grow up. The importance of family and being involved in an activity that builds character and memories that will and do last a lifetime is a contribution to society. So the answer is YES.

We would all do well to simply gently bloom where we're planted. Unlike the fellow showing raw resentment. And please don't think he's behaving as a religious Christian. He is a decoy, a fraud.

Most especially, thanks for serving when serving wasn't cool.

You've paid all societal dues. Enjoy yourselves!

Although I pay a rather large sum in taxes which helps 'something' (I think), I truly learned what giving back to society means from my bride of 20 years. She is truly an inspiration, and although she runs her own company, and is busier than a one handed paper hanger, she always makes the time to lecture, assist, donate, mentor, and to be a great role model for young adults.

When I grow up I want to be just like her!
