RV Life has many "norms" to it — towing, travel days, setting up and breaking down camp, flushing the tanks, and more. But it will be some of the unexpected encounters, unusual locations, people we met, and the odd things about RV life which will be some of our most treasured memories.
Here are 10 odd things I will miss about RV life. The little things that add to the experience but many don't realize are part of it.
Driving down the highway and the view of Betty Jo (the Airstream) in the side view mirror. This one I will miss the most, the shiny views of her following us.
One of the many challenges of being 50' in length is GAS STATIONS. We usually go to truck stops and go through the same lines as the BIG BOYS (semis), but every once in a while there isn't one around and so we have to find a gas station where we can get in and out of. I wonder how long before I quit judging a gas based on whether or not Betty Jo fits. :-)
Parking by the BIG BOYS (semis) at a Rest Stop. One of the many advantages of RVing is having access to your own restroom and kitchen. Often, we would stop for a bathroom break, stretching, and a quick bite to eat. Man, am I going to miss that.
One of the perks about RV Life is the GEMS! The scenic highways you discover by accident (or on purpose). Then when you find a quiet spot to pull over to enjoy a meal and just absorb the surroundings, what more could you ask for.
The Unusual Locations we slept. RV Life is not all about RV Parks, State parks, National campgrounds, there is so much more to it. Some of the best night's sleep were in parking lots, on a farm, or while Boondocking.
The Airstream WAVE and Flash on the road, or how excited we get whenever another Airstream is in the same RV Park.
Cautiously opening up cupboards and doors. You never know what shifted during travel day.
The Oddities and Fun things you see on the road.
The Stars and the Spectacular Sunsets
The people we met. RV life provides an extraordinary opportunity to meet people from all over and all walks of life.
As we roam the roads and highways, looking for that next fantastic stop, keep track of our travels in our Airstream - Betty Jo
