New Year's “RVlutions”
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page”- St. Augustine
Many people use the New Year as a time to start something new and make changes in their lives. New Year’s resolutions such as exercising and eating right are among the top resolutions every year and more often than not, those resolutions only last a few weeks, even a few months. If you are contemplating what your New Year’s resolution is going to be, make sure it’s one you can keep. In the RV world you could even call it a New Year’s “RVlution”.
The possibilities for your New Year’s “RVlution” are endless. To start, make a list of things you want to accomplish in your RV this year. Your list could include places you want to visit, new activities to try, exploring the ins and outs of your RV, and possibly renovating your RV one project at a time. Think of the things you want to accomplish most and put them at the top of your list.
From here, determine how much time you can or are willing to devote to completing your tasks. If you are only planning to travel a couple of weeks out of the year, your list should be short. For example, pick maybe your top 2 destinations and depending on how far you have to travel to reach those destinations, split them into two separate trips. Or, if you want to replace the carpet in your RV and put down tile or wood flooring, set aside a full week or two weekends to get your project completed. Setting a time frame makes it easier to get the task at hand done so you don’t keep putting it off until “next time”.
Next, set your RV travel route. Make the destination you most want to visit the first location in your RV’s GPS system. This ensures that you can devote as much time at your first destination as you want and see everything you want to see. The next destinations on your “RVlution” list can be planned out based on your location from your first stop, by the direction you want to travel, and by how much time you have left on your travel itinerary.
Last, try some different activities this year! There are so many different activities that have become popular over the last year and chances are most destinations you visit will have a place nearby that offers them. For example, paddle boarding has become all the craze in water sport activities. If you are anywhere near a body of water it’s a fun activity to try and it’s a good workout as well. If you have never been hang-gliding or parasailing before, it’s a fun and safe activity for all. Plus, you get to view the beauty of the landscape from a perspective you have never seen before. No matter what you try you can at least say you’ve done it once. Who knows, you may even find a new favorite hobby!
Whatever items you put on your New Year’s “RVlutions” list, make resolutions that are attainable and fun at the same time. Keep your list posted in plain view so you have access to it at all times. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, so take the time to do things you’ve been putting off and set out for some fun times in your RV!
