One super-large-humongous reason we are on the lookout for an RV, is because we like to take road trips. We love going different places and seeing what sorts of adventures we can find. These road trips have often come about unexpectedly, meaning we simply decide to go somewhere. There are occasions when we do plan or decide to go to a nearby park/forest, but the most fun is when we just pack up the car and hit the road – no destination in mind – no planning – just an awareness that adventure will be found and fun will be ours!
Interestingly, these road trips generally start at night, a direction is chosen and we’re off into the proverbial sunset. On this particular trip we had an overnight camping destination in mind, but when we arrived at the park, all the campsites were occupied, so we kept going. Eventually, we stopped and here’s the view we woke to.
Beautiful, eh? It’s relaxing, let me tell you! It gets better, though. Here’s a few shots as we’re driving to – somewhere.
Then we stopped at an overlook. Don’t ask what road we were on, there are so many. So long as the road (or series of roads) lead to someplace green on the map, it’s fair game! More often than not, we follow state roads, which are much more scenic. In doing so, we have gone through small towns and we’ve seen some potential (future) activities. Since we’re not yet in an RV, any activities we pass become ideas for our RV travel journal.
Nonetheless, we get to find these places.
We cross state lines, sometimes multiple states, sometimes just the same two states more than once.
And there was an absolutely beautiful sunset going on here.
But, as usual, we ended up finding some water. We’ve actually been to this particular spot before, but Baby was much to young to really participate.
This is from our first trip to this river.
And this is Baby having the time of his life on this particular trip. The water was pretty cold, but not nearly as fast moving or high.
When we arrived back home, Baby thought it would be a good time to take some selfies.
Until next time…
What kind of adventures do you go on as a family? How do you include your child(ren) in those adventures? What’s one of your favorite activites or places to visit?
