How Do We Plan Our Travels?

Where are you traveling to next?

It’s one of the most common questions we are asked. To be honest, we ask ourselves this question quite often as well. While it’s a great problem to have, it can be overwhelming planning out your travels. There are so many beautiful places the U.S. has to offer and not to mention the places you can travel to outside of the U.S. borders.

So how do you choose?

Follow the Weather

One of the most important factors while living and traveling in an RV is the weather. While there are lots of different RV’s out there and some handle the weather better than others, it can make for a miserable experience living in a small space and not being able to enjoy the outdoors. That has been key for us on how we endure living in a small space year round…by using the great outdoors as our living space.

We want to be outside hiking, biking, swimming, or just enjoying the fresh air. Starring at the aluminum walls of our Airstream gets old fast without the added square footage that is added on by following good weather.

Look for Events

One of our absolute favorite things about RV living is the amazing people you meet along the way. A really great way to do that is to attend events along the way. There are tons of festivals, rallies, celebrations all over the country that having an RV can take you to. Whatever your interests or if there is an event you have always wanted to attend, now is your chance! RVing makes for great opportunities to attend your favorite events.

The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta had always been on my bucket list and finally getting to experience this event was a dream come true. Once we decided we wanted to attend this event, we scheduled our summer and late fall travels around this area. We try not to schedule too many events so that we are not always on a “schedule”, but having events as a direction is a great way to get started and meet like-minded people.
