One of the best ways that we as humans can educate ourselves before attempting a new experience is to read about how another person or group enjoyed a similar experience. While we may experience thing in a completely different manner dependent on weather and other outside influences, we can learn a lot by checking out how other people decide to take their RV Vacations!
With as much driving as we do, Doug and I had always said we wanted to buy an RV. Nothing could be better, we imagined, than a small rolling house on wheels. No stopping for bathroom breaks ever hour! Make your meals while you cruise down the highway! No more single night hotel stays! Before making such a big investment based solely on what we thought, we rented a Class C RV from Road Trip RV Adventures, a local company in Polk City, Iowa, to get some real RV experience.
Living in an RV will remind you of your first apartment. My first apartment was tiny, with a kitchen I could barely turn around in, a bathroom that no more than one person could occupy at a time and a living area that doubled as a dining room. In fact, it was probably about the same square footage as our 29 foot RV- but I had it to myself. Organization is the key. A place for everything, and you figure out really quick what is- and what isn’t -necessary.
At 11 pm, when you’re still miles from where you wanted to be, Walmart is the most beautiful thing you’ll see. Miles upon miles of road construction- and the back up that joins it- slowed us down quite a bit. By the time we made it to North Platte, Nebraska, it was nearing midnight and we couldn’t imagine driving another 3 hours to our intended overnight stop of Scott’s Bluff. We found the closest Walmart and were thrilled to see half a dozen RVs, travel trailers and semis in the back of the lot. As a courtesy, Doug went into the store and spoke with the manager who welcomed us- and mentioned that the donuts would be fresh about 5am.
