Yellowstone Park – Anywhere USA – Prescott AZ (Photo) – Traveling as a Lifestyle – Does that Interest Anyone – We Are Thinking about It – Someday –

imageHave you ever thought of traveling as a lifestyle in a motor home or a five-wheel recreational vehicle (RV)? Some people do it after retirement. We know a few who have done it and enjoy it. Would we? We are thinking about it.

I’ve enjoyed camping in a tent. I’ve never been camping in an RV. Tents are cheaper, but my hubby has no interest in tent camping. He’s accustomed to staying in fine hotels. I talked him into a certain less expensive hotel when we traveled to see my family. We survived roughing it like that. He was surprised it was as nice as it was for less money.

Are we daydreaming or will we do it? Not sure yet. Just thinking a lot about it. Maybe next year or the year after that, we might do it.

Are you a person that likes to travel and/or camp in state parks or other campgrounds? Steve’s first destination after visiting our families, he says, would be Yellowstone Park. Where would you like to visit?

    • I think most people would have that experience, liking it for a while but not all the time. I think I could live that way and be happy, but I’m wondering if my hubby would really like it. He is used to having a comfortable home. I’m getting used to having a comfy home, too.

  2. I never got to travel much. I did go to the shopping mall though. Two years ago.

    • Two years ago to the shopping mall? I’m not a shopper either, Carl. I could skip shopping, except for groceries, forever, if I didn’t have to have clothes once in a while.

      I never got to travel much either. Very little. But I’m open to a change of lifestyle if it suits my husband. Wherever he is, I will be fine. Blessings to you…

    I’m not much of a traveler. When I do travel, I like to stay in nice, comfortable hotels. Camping in an RV might be fun in the mountains or near a lake or river with beautiful scenery. I wouldn’t want to travel as a lifestyle. I’m the type who likes to stay in one spot.

    • I have to admit that I like staying in comfortable hotels, and I like having a comfortable home. Yet, my life has caused me to have to move a lot. One thing better than moving form one home to another (way too much work) would be to drive the entire home to another place. I understand what you are saying, and I’m hearing it over and over again. Thank you for your comment. Blessings to you, Joyce…

    I don’t know if I could do an rv long term, but we do like to go camping. We have a pop up trailer, so it’s a step up from tent camping… It has a heater but not a bathroom or air conditioner so at least I feel like we’re not too soft 🙂

    • Wow. A heater would be nice. Yes, you are still roughing it, but it’s better than a tent. If we had been camping in a pop-up camper, we wouldn’t have floated on our air mattresses when a huge thunderstorm hit Ocala National Park. We apparently had set up camp in a low spot, and the torrential rainstorm flooded us right out of it. We didn’t float out the door. We had to get up and wade to the van and sit out the storm until morning. Ha! We laughed about it the next day, but not during the night. Thanks for your visit and comment. Blessings to you, Janna…
