Planning your next vacation but not sure where to go?
That RV you bought is calling your name. It wants to feel the air stream over its roof as it cruises down the highway, passing all the pipsqueak cars that are making their way to work. Your RV guiltily snickers as it passes those who have to schlep to work, as it looks forward to its campground destination.
It misses the sounds and smells of its people and pets, the laughter, the whispers, the squeals, the barking and howling, the wafting smoke of the fire pit, the sweet burning smell of marshmallows on a stick. It yearns to feel the surge of electricity and water through its hoses and wires. It sits in its parking space behind your house reminiscing about the texture, the aroma, and the color of campground dirt of your last camping excursion. And it sighs, waiting…waiting…for you to respond.
It would be wrong of you to ignore the calls of your RV; it would be rude. Simply downright rude.
So where should you go? For how long should you go? Should you plan everything down to a T? Or should you just wing it?
Whatever direction you choose, whatever level of spontaneity you choose, there’s a campsite for you. Prefer a warmer clime than you are at now? Head to Florida, where you can still enjoy the warmth of the sun, beach side or lakeside. There’s public or private. If you prefer a smaller campground, check out Twin Lakes RV Resort, where you can get in a little boating, fishing and swimming.
If your RV is a history buff kind of recreational vehicle, it might enjoy a tour of great American historic sites. Take a spin to Pennsylvania, pass the Appalachian Trail, and get in on some Civil War reenactment action at the Gettysburg Battlefield Resort. Adjacent to the famous battlefield, this resort offers the opportunity to take a step back in time while still enjoying modern amenities.
What are you waiting for? There’s no better time than the present. Check your calendar, mark off your dates, dust off the RV, stock it up and get a’ movin’. You’ll thank your RV for reminding you that there’s a big camping world out there and there’s a site with your name on it, waiting to play host to your next great vacation.
