Pinterest is one of the hottest new websites (if you can call it that) going viral on the internet. The short story is that you can create a board where you post photos of whatever you want: your RV trips, favorite campground shots, scenic spots, wildlife, or in the case of the Pinterest blog from Rentzio, an RV rental aggregator in Miami, Florida, has created a Pinterest board described as:
“When choosing the perfect gift for your favorite RVer, remember that RVers aren’t that much different than kids. Each shares an unbridled passion to roam the outdoors, an unwavering attraction to shiny things and an undying love for new toys.. you really can’t go wrong if you find something that enhances their life(style).”
The board is called “Cool gift ideas for RVers” and has links and photos of the stuff that you might want to drop in the stocking of your favorite RVer. These include such items as a 12-volt crock pot, solar-powered charger for your electronic gadgets, and even an indoor portable campfire in a rock for when it’s rainy or cold outside.
Great RV Parks, Go Green While Camping, Camping in Style, and Extravagant RV Interiors. In fact, they have 61 boards with more than 2,800 photos. You can see the boards on the Rentzio Pinterest page. There is something there for just about any kind of RVer.
After you digest some of the links and photos on the Rentzio board consider setting one up for yourself. They are fun, you can post photos from anywhere–they don’t have to ones you took–and link to anywhere that you think is interesting. And you can create many boards to reflect your interests and discoveries. Go to Pinterest to get started.
Creating your own boards is not only fun but also a way to allow friends and family at home to follow your adventures.
