We get lots of questions from regular readers and listeners of out podcast about how we travel and where we stay while heading from pace to place in our RV.
So, in no particular order, let me share our top 10 traveling tips:
- Stay off the Interstates – This is often easier said than done. But always, driving two lane or divided state highways is more interesting and yields more fun places to explore. Unfortunately, though, we find that we can not avoid them completely because interstates are always the fastest and most direct ways to get somewhere and often our schedule is such that we have to be somewhere at a certain time and we don’t have the luxury to indulge our curiosity for the serendipity of relaxed travel. Fortunately, there are ways to minimize the stress of traveling the interstates.
- Follow the Roadtreking 330 Rule – When we’re just meandering, our preferred style is simple: Stop for the day when you have either traveled 330 miles or it reaches [3:30] PM. Notice I said “preferred” style. Generally, this is always best as you are not exhausted from too much driving and when you do stop, you still have time to explore the local area. It’s a good rule to follow but it doesn’t cover every trip. Sometimes things happen. You stay longer somewhere than you planned or something some up and you have to be somewhere faster than you expected. So the 330 Rule can be supplanted anytime by any of the following guidelines.
