To RV or Not?

Article Contributed By Tamar Wilson To RV or not to RV? Is that the question? No, the question is where are we going? My girlfriend was planning to take her first RV trip with her husband and two boys and had decided to do Arizona, “because there is nothing in Utah”. I literally choked on my Sushi. Nothing in Utah, where should I start? Bryce Canyon Arches Moab Monument Valley Dinosaur National Park Vermilion Castle At the time I just had no words so later I texted her a Utah website and reminded her that I had been Rving for the last 15 years. Have not heard from her since - hope she did not fall into the Grand Canyon. Back to me, I traveled all over the western part of this country in a 1978 VW van and then upgraded to a 1988 Commander. We spent half of these trips on the side of the road and the other half in the most amazing places I have ever seen. Some of the side of the road experiences were the most entertaining. Breaking down is not that bad when you are in an RV. You have food, bed, and if you pack correctly lots of beer and we can never forget the bathroom. Due to these breakdowns we saw things we would have never found, Vermilion Castle was my favorite. It was fall and so beautiful, being from San Diego, fall colors are not something we get to see. I was surrounded by leaves of yellow and red. A few days later, we ended up in Vernon, Utah, with another breakdown and discovered Dinosaur National park. The most wonderful people helped us out in getting the vehicle fixed. I have never met nicer people than I have in Utah and still stay in touch with some of them. But good to have beer in your RV, can’t buy it there. The park was amazing they are still excavating there and have displayed that in their museum, it is something to see. On another trip when the RV was running well we went through Monument Valley and found a small town called Mexican Hat. We were looking for some relief from the RV and stopped to see if they had any accommodations. They put us up in an apartment. It was a two bedroom, I kissed my partner and had a whole room to myself. So check every website, look at the miles and time you have available. Keep it simple never rush, you might find a place you don’t want to leave and other locations will come on other trips. But always remember, even brand new RV’s can break down. Make sure that cell phone works everywhere and, not to advertise, but AAA has the best deals for travelers and a great price, even when it happens down your own block. In my final words, look for the hidden places, talk to people in the areas, use social media to your advantage, find your best vacation. Happy Traveling.
