Traveling in an RV is one of the perks of our retirement. It can be relaxing, exhausting, entertaining, and memorable. However, there are things I’ve learned along the way . . .
- In an RV, there is a place for everything. (Why is it that no matter where Gary leaves his shoes, I trip over them?)
- A good book is a necessity; however, always carry an extra. For my girlfriends: I just finished reading the Mary Higgins Clark book, All By Myself, Alone – 3 stars, and I started reading Karin Slaughter’s book, The Good Daughter – so far a 5-star.
- An entire day can be spent reading and sleeping. I know that’s hard for you to visualize Gary doing that, but when we travel, he does.
- RV campgrounds are like small communities; everyone helping their neighbor.
- There are campsites in an RV park that are labeled “Adults Only”. I thought that was odd, so yes, we checked it out. Obviously, dogs are allowed.
- There are a bazillion different models of RVs, and it’s truly a personal choice as to why you buy the one you buy.
- There is definitely RV envy!!
- Don’t worry, friends; dogs are being rescued!!
- Most people are “up-and-at-em” by 8:00 a.m. P.S. Not us!! Well, I am.
- In the mountains, when the sun is out, you’re hot. When the sun goes behind a cloud, you need a jacket. Keeps you guessing.
- And, finally . . . cue the song: “What the World Needs Now”. There is limited cell service, Wi-Fi, and TV channels in the mountains. Consequently, most people are oblivious to world problems. Maybe that’s why it’s such a happy place!! (Well, that and the amount of alcohol consumption.) 😊
Until then . . . carry on!
