"I've noticed traffic here has dropped off over the years. I still think it's one of the best RV Forums on the planet and regularly recommend it to folks I find who are interested in the RV lifestyle, along with my username."

It didn't drop off, it fell off a cliff. I feel for the Mods, they volunteer to help the community without any help from above. The archaic software and the list of 5000 things not to be mentioned even though commonly mentioned in the rest of the world must weigh heavily.

Here are some sad points...

Casual RV'ing has slumped. Where folks used to go on weekends perhaps five times a summer plus a really long vacation, they may go twice with the long vacation cut in half for duration and distance.

A hundred gallons of gasoline or diesel is a budget buster and allowing a three hundred-mile radius, it is discouraging.

Even down here in Mexico, the fuel is four dollars a gallon, and beachside camping on a Caribbean beach can cost seventy dollars per night. Boondocking on a primitive beach can cost three hundred dollars a month.

Here's an example of what I face. During the summer, escaping a tropical beach is wonderful. Trading ninety degrees eighty percent humidity for seventy degrees and thirty percent humidity is quite a treat.

Quicksilver gets 12 mpg. Not bad for an 18,000 # rig. It is 240 miles to Patzcuaro and 240 miles to return. About 480 miles. Forty dollars of fuel at 4 dollars per gallon. $160 US dollars.

The RV park in Patzcuaro is not in town. It's at the top of a hill three miles distant. So a five dollar per trip taxi is needed. Ten dollars a day for say 7 days.

The RV park charges twenty five dollars a day. $175

But the toll road is a killer. For a three axle rig, it's seventy dollars each way. One hundred forty dollars.

Of the family can pile into the Spirit and it gets 22 mpg. The tolls amount to forty dollars. A downtown set of two rooms costs thirty-five dollars a day which eliminates the taxi.

So three trips are possible during the summer rather than one.

Perhaps, just need upgrade software with https://mlsdev.com/services/mobile-app-development. Another thing to consider when comparing app software and web design is the ease of use. You want to find a web development company that can build your app according to your specific instructions. This can include integrating the app with your existing mobile platform, adding in any new widgets or features as needed, and more. Developers often make the mistake of thinking that an app that works on an old browser is going to work on a new device, but this isn't true. Always choose web developers who specialize in mobile app design so that your app will be effective on the type of device you have in mind.

If you're not paying for it, you're the product.

I'm happy talking about RVing on this site. Will continue to hang around here.

This is a good solution, thanks!

I think that people spend too much time on social networks. Because of this, they spend less time with family, walking, relaxing with friends. When I was in college, I decided to give up Facebook because I didn't have time to study and work. I spent a lot of time at work because I liked her very much. I sometimes turned to https://www.topwritersreview.com/reviews/myhomeworkdone/ to keep up with my studies. Now I sometimes sit in social networks but not very much because it really takes a lot of our free time
