We’ve been dreaming about spring camping trips all winter, but with the current pandemic, many travel plans have been cancelled or postponed for the foreseeable future. While we stay home right now, there are still some things you can do to create a flexible plan that will be ready to put into action when it’s safe to travel again.
Make that bucket list
While we wait to hit the road again, it’s the perfect time to really reflect on our RV goals and priorities, and create a bucket list of places and road trips you want to take.
When mapping out a trip without a timeline, think year-round. By planning a trip that doesn’t depend on the season, you can set off on your adventure no matter what time of the year travel restrictions relax. Look for campgrounds with longer operating seasons or year-round sites, and do some research into the activities available in every season.
Choose FCFS campgrounds
While many parks are offering tentative summer reservation, if you don’t want to chance committing to a date at this time, focus on campgrounds that offer a large selection of first-come, first-serve sites. If possible, plan to arrive mid-week for a better chance of securing one of these sites.
Give Boondocking a try
When you’re planning a road trip without a solid timeline, it’s a great opportunity to plan on boondocking. Take some time now to map out your route and identify spots where you can park for the night along the way.
Enjoy the ultimate RV staycation
If your RV is currently parked at home, why not have the ultimate RV staycation in your own yard? We always recommend a pre-season weekend in your RV to make sure everything is running smoothly after the winter. Put out the awning, set up camp, light your portable fire pit, and get your camping fix without leaving home.
We hope everyone is staying safe during this challenging time, and looking forward to future RV adventures!
