Before we started RV’ing we travelled a bit to different places. When in Mexico, Belize or Thailand we chose to stay in places that were a bit more rustic. Gaps in the walls, holes in the window screens, basic shelters with handmade furniture, a stove, a sink and rusty appliances. We’ve travelled to cities in the USA, stayed in Paris, London, Barcelona and Lisbon at places that I refer to as “Brass and Glass”.. they have all the fancy staff, stuff, and all the amenities.
How do you travel?
How do you RV?
Are you a Boondocker who choses to stay in places that are out of the way, a bit rustic, are you comfortable without electricity, wifi and tv?
Are you a Resorter who prefers swimming pools, hot tubs, hot showers, laundry, free cable tv and wifi?
We’ve certainly tried a bit of each on this trip and stayed at Campgrounds and RV Parks that are a bit of both.
We’ve overnighted at farms that raised alpaca’s, goats, lambs, or chickens. We’ve visited wineries in Canada and the USA and tasted wine and bought a few to take with us on the road. We’ve overnighted in a few driveways of people who are kind, inquisitive and generous with their time and made us feel so welcome.
We’ve been in RV parks that have dirt roads, gravel roads, or paved roads, we’ve dealt with roots, ruts and steep sites from back to front, more often than not the sites are level. We’ve been in public showers and bathrooms that are spotless, with perfect hot water and great water pressure, and some that are none of the above. Laundry room machines that function and are spotless., and some that aren’t.
Both choices have their charm and place in any road trip. It all depends on how you like to roll!
