But as grey nomad Facebook users ourselves, we know that fear is quite unjustified and inhibiting.
If you love the outdoor life … and you must if you are visiting this site … then surely you have some adventurous spirit in your being.
And that’s where Facebook comes into its own.
Forget about those Facebook boneheads who want to dribble on with posts like, “I’m going down the shops now for a coffee”. Who cares?
Facebook is just great for keeping in touch with family and friends and seeing, via photos and videos, what the grandkids are up to. Of course, you really want to know only what the littlies are doing. Better you don’t know what the bigger ones are up to … lol … that’s Facebook jargon for Laugh Out Loud!
But what really stirs our juices are all the special interest Facebook group pages that now exist.
Below is a selection we love. Just click on the picture to load a Facebook group that interests you. Please note – some group admins (especially Rober James of Motorhomes Australia) regularly change the group page cover photo, so what you see below may not be the current cover:
