Random thoughts, #16
Some would say “Choose the smallest RV you can be comfortable in.” My approach is to “Choose a vehicle that’ll go just about anywhere and whose gas mileage doesn’t make you cringe.” I’ve got too many miles ahead of me for 8 mpg to be acceptable. So a van is what I chose.
I've been on the biggest road trip of my life… seven months on the road and counting. I've been to California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, back to New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming (love those Tetons), Montana, and Idaho. Honestly? It took me a couple of months to get comfortable full-timing in the van, but now that I've learned how to embrace perpetual change and manage the lifestyle, I like it, and I'm crazy about the mountains, lakes, rivers, and freedom.
I suppose that lots of folks would not want to leave behind what they consider "normality," but for me that's easy to trade for the motion-picture-view out my van's windshield.
