The first time you set out on the open road in your RV, you have no idea what's in store. An adventure unfolds before you, a lifestyle forms around you and suddenly you're hooked. But RV camping isn't just about having fun, it's also about change and adaptation. Before you buy that RV, find out the 5 ways RV camping changes you.
1. YOU GET CLOSER TO PEOPLE
Sure, you'll get closer to the people in your RV, geographically if nothing else. But we are talking big picture. When you travel across the country, you'll meet people from all walks of life, from all backgrounds and from all places. What you'll learn is that no matter how you may differ from someone in appearance, background or beliefs, we're all human at the core and we're all just doing the best we can. The RV lifestyle gets you closer to people.
2. YOU REALIZE TIME IS PRECIOUS
They say time flies when you're having fun, and it's the truth! Time slips past on RV vacations, and suddenly our laughter, joy and fun become fond memories. In our busy world it's hard to slow down, but when you're RV camping you can just stop for a moment and take life in. It's then that you realize time is a precious.
3.YOUR LEARN WHAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT TO YOU
Have you ever thought about what you'd take from your house if you could only pack a suitcase? RV camping poses that kind of scenario. You don't have much space to bring along everything you own, just everything you need. Without all those possessions weighing you down, you're free to live uninhibited. When you have to strategically choose what you bring, you have a chance to learn what's really important to you.
4. YOU FIND NEW WAYS TO DO THINGS
RV camping is a community. You'll learn all kinds of things, whether it's small like learning to make popcorn over the campfire, or whether it's big, like learning how to fix your RV's plumbing. Along your travels you'll learn a little something from each person you meet. Soon you'll have an entire repertoire of knowledge that came from people all over the country and the world.
5. COOKING BECOMES AN ART
In a house, you have plenty of place to store food. You can buy plenty of groceries, spices, dry goods and snacks. When you're camping, you have to work with limited space, both for storage and for cooking. The end result? You learn to make amazing meals on campfires, with limited ingredients and using what you have on hand. It makes you more resourceful and the benefit is that you get delicious meals. Keep learning, friends! And keep making delicious art.
