Real RVers Living Their Dreams
As a kid, I said that when I retired, I was going to buy an RV and travel the country. And then I finalized realized, why do I need to wait until I’m older? How often do you get to live out your life dreams while you’re still young?
Wait! New York City? In an RV? Yes, it’s totally possible. Not to mention staying in an RV makes visiting America’s largest city (also one of the most expensive cities) more affordable.
When I started rock climbing, I never imagined what I would find and the people I would meet. When you grow up in a city, you live in a bubble and you think that life is really only one way when there are so many different walks of life and different points of view. But you’ll never know that unless you go see it for yourself.
When you go in with an open mind, there’s a lot more room to feel fulfilled and excited by all these cool things you didn’t expect.
Everything you’ve ever learned about in a book at school, when you Go RVing, you get to see that.
We travel to do what we do, and it’s nice to have comfort to return to.
