As a Man I actually prefer an all natural woman. No Makeup, Natural Breasts, Hairy armpits legs and other areas does not bother me. It shows confidence and acceptance of who you are as a woman. Seriously It's just hair. You go girl :)
8:10 That spot was so glorious and peaceful. I felt it to my toes. The difference between going through the closed for business town and then the truck stop........ then this glorious spot. Instant stress relief, even just watching it here. I can only imagine how you felt to actually experience it.
While humanity as a species only has existed for a couple of hundred thousand years (not millions) they did get along without showering. They did however also have an average lifespan of not even 30 years since the child mortality rate from illness and lack of hygiene was high.
But I get your point, you really only do need a fraction of the waters you use - even if you'd still use the ol' soap and water and stand in the shower space I'd bet you could get clean with 1-2 liters of water; the modern long, hot shower is truly a waste of resources. But as long as dirt, smell and pathogens is gotten rid of every way that works is good.
And when it comes to shaving I fully agree with you! Why should hair on a man be considered clean but on a woman it's suddenly dirty?
Really goes to show how close minded some people are, blindly following societal norms just "because that's way it's supposed to be". Double so when they actively try to shame those who walk against such norms in an attempt to get them "back in line" for daring to do their own thing. Such a sad side of human social psychology...
I’m sorry you found OK dreary and boring. It is usually anything but dreary. In OK we say, if you don’t like the weather, wait a few hours and it will change. We have all seasons. This year my Roses were still blooming in November. Life in OK is anything but boring. Next time take time to go to the Memorial bombing site, watch the Thunder or come in the spring and see the Tornadoes——you won’t be bored then.
With that viewers comment, that would mean that hair on your head, or a "beautiful mane" would equate to being very unclean. Really? I've never heard women with gorgeous long locks being called dirty or unclean. Disregard the uneducated haters....
I haven't been to Oklahoma since I was 12. Had family in the Stroud and Davenport area.My dislike of hairy lady bits started when I was a young Private in the US Army stationed in Germany back in the late 80s.To each their own though.
Hahaha all the women in Europe who don't shave armpits or legs wouldn't agree with her! Here's another argument is your head not clean because you have hair? Perception is reality to some.
Enjoying your channel!
Oklahoma is not even a MidWestern State. It is, rather...a Great Plains State. And yes...my Man is a Trucker and we enjoy driving through the beautiful 'great plains' of Oklahoma. There is great beauty in all States and People of this Nation.
I used to live on the road and I did it for 6.5 years as a paid Trucker. After so many years of it, I would look at the Truck and I'd have this feeling that, I can't escape the truck. I was a trapped Rat in a Box that I could never escape from.
I've never cared whether women shave their legs or underarms. There is nothing wrong with hair. I certainly don't want to shave MY legs or pits! It's your body. Do whatever you want with it. Meanwhile, I'll keep enjoying your videos, Carolyn. :-)
Was not funny when I was a teenager and wonted to shave my legs. My Mother from Germany was in shock. Said to me “we will see after I talk to your Father”. Now that is funny when she explain how shocked she was with my request.
One of the things about the nomad life that concerns me is not showering regularly. I love my showers and no way could I go 2 weeks without one. Especially in the summer after being all sweaty. I'm all for being natural, but I'm not growing out arm pit hair or leg hair. . Nope. I like when my legs feel and look smooth after shaving. I think it looks gross when woman have underarm hair. And vice versa, I don't like when men shave their legs or arm pits. I realize it's all about social conditioning but I don't think my mind is going to change on that one.
Carolyn i thought about the haunted lake too, and there you are at a lake. Then after you fixed your camera it looked upward accidentally, or was that a ghost? you have that paper with the name caroline on it as well! Capone watches out for you though! Growing up we were poor, I'm a real coal miners daughter, not a joke. But anyway, we were considered lucky to have what we did. My mom fixed a water hose to the sink of our rented house . We had water indoors after that but only cold. We heated our water on the stove and would bathe from a wash pan, and get a clean pan of water to rinse from. A horrible flood came in 1977 and even flooded our cities. Our house had water almost touching the ceiling within 4". We made it out with our furniture and belongings. Because of that flood in Knox and Bell counties Ky we had our first home and bathroom, FEMA helped us get a home. We were eligible for a trailer home 3 bedroom at a fairly cheap price. So I was almost 12 years old when we had our first bathroom. I told my mom she'd never have to ask me to go bathe again. I alway carried water at my grandmothers house, and bathed from a pan every night at her house too. You will learn how to appreciate things this way. Sorry such a long story :)
Dang, having to much fun, talk about wide open spaces, when I moved here to Oklahoma and started going to and from town people wave at you. So, I started paying attention when someone would pass me and I would wave back. Lol, crazy I know uh? It’s Thursday night here and it’s 19 degrees in Enid, OK Bought a bigger heater than my buddy heater, this one has a thermostat and it turns on and off. It saves me on propane not running all the time. The buddy heater is 8,000 BTU and this bigger heater is 15,000BTU. Wow, what a difference. Safe travels Carolyn And Capone. 👍😀☃️
Hay Carolyn it’s Randy just wanted to stop in and say hi and your videos are awesome,although I gots to give it to you on just pulling up in no mans lands and just camp for the night your one of the bravest women I ever come acrossed,tonight I let my daughter Ala that’s 8 years old watch this video with me and yes right off the bat she said can we do this Dad,although I played it off and said one day after your out of school we might ,but thanks Carolyn for being the woman you are and I gots to say if my daughter approved of you and liked you ,your doing something right,oh she also liked your dog,,be safe carolyn
Going back to LA then? The PNW is dreary for a solid 4 months but things are a changen! So, you mentioned 'Fishing Spot'. I'd say looking to see if it's fishing season would have worked... Anyway, think of the best of the area and not the cons.
I so wish I was free to come to the RTR this year. This is the life I'm meant to live. I have always known that being in nature away from people is my calling. I just never realized that this is possible until I ran across Bob Wells channel which then led me to you. There is a reason I discovered you both. I feel that we are led to our paths in life but we choose not to listen. The older I have become the more I understand about this. When possible I follow these messages as much as I can. I too need my alone time to recharge my batteries. They are so drained at this time of my life but you have opened my mind up so I'm able to see my true self. Thank you CAROLYN and sweet Capone. You just help me see what is inside of me. I was so lost but now I'm found. Lol lol lol. I CHOOSE TO BE KIND. What the world needs now, is love sweet love, not just for some, but for everyone. Always love that song. It reminds me of you. A positive message. You look great in that sweater. The color is so perfect for you. Capone needs a nice outfit for Christmas this year. Lol lol.
Really enjoyed the scenery and traveling along with you. Capone is the sweetest dog and he looks so comfy and seems to enjoy being on the road. I imagine it would be very lonely without his company. Stay safe and hugs to Capone.
found you the perfect rig. if you back into a tree, you will break the tree no matter how huge it is.
Hi Carolyn.I love watching your videos.It's a bit of escape-ism for follow your stories.Sadly it's only a dream for most of us here in the UK because it's only Scotland where you can park for free in lay bys but even then the police tend to move you on.Matilda is a nice machine.Looks very comfortable x
You can use wifi through att AND verizon to make a call with the Skype app. If the person you call has a Skype app it is a free Skype to Skype call. If they don't have Skype i have a $3 account to make national calls unlimited. It is totally nuts to have to drive an hour to get a different cell signal if you already have a signal and can make a Skype call. You can have the app on your laptop or on your phone. It is not always an awesome signal but most of the time it is. Hope this helps. LMK
When I was growing up, many years ago, we just had a bath on Saturday night and washed our hair. The only exception was if you got very dirty and spot cleaning wouldn't work. This was the norm back then. I don't take daily bath/showers but will do sink baths inbetween. In fact a sink bath is good to conserve water.
New rigs rattle after a couple trips lol. Short story: At my first duty station i roomed with a gal who was al natural she believed as long as she shampooed her hair wherever it maybe she was clean, because shampoo was for hair not bar soap.
FYI: Never turn on the wet/damp device, keep rice on hand and put it in a plastic bag for at least 24 hours in a warm spot. The dampness can potentially short out more stuff when you turn it on before its dry. Good luck.
I like your new sweater. Shaving is such a personal thing. I don't understand why people are so concerned about your cleanliness and shaving. People say things online that they would never say to your face! Ugh!
#388 Ahoy Carolyn. Wheeling a ship at sea during a calm is boring, also. Just water in all directions. And the heat! Deck plates hot enough to fry your feet on. Oklahoma is a lovely state those Oklahoma Hills bring beauty to the plains.
I am living vicariously through your videos. In my younger days I groomed Standardbred racehorses. I traveled all over this glorious continent. I miss being able to take that side road and end up in the middle of an antique car show,county fair or a huge farmer's market. Your videos make me smile. Thank you!
I love the way you think, Carolyn, and the way you talk to your camera as if it were a person sitting there with you. So natural, and the way you act a little goofy with singing, etc, is really refreshing, too. Safe travels to you, and keep up the great work.
