Although there are a million reasons why you could choose to drop the “stay at home” lifestyle and start RVing, most people do it because they don’t want to live a “normal” life, they want to do something extraordinary and interesting. Whether you’re planning on selling the home and completely committing to a life on the road, or you’re just planning to take long vacations away from home, RVing is all about learning new things. In this blog, we’re going to talk about eight things you’ll learn while you’re out RVing that you can’t learn while sitting at home.
Appreciation of the outdoors
Although it’s great to have a stable job, a comfortable home, and an expensive car, what good does this do for you other than encouraging you to spend more time inside watching T.V. or being bored? When you’re RVing, there’s no way to huddle up on your couch and avoid the outside world because there are great adventures surrounding you all the time! That’s not to say that RVs aren’t comfortable for living in, however, but when you look out the window and see a new adventure waiting for you every day, it’s impossible to resist the urge to go out and explore.
If you’re a homebody, chances are, you plan trips every once in awhile just to get out and do things, but after a couple days, you’ll get bored and go back to your safe place at home. It may sound harsh, but this applies to everyone! The only way to truly appreciate nature and the outdoors is to live and breathe it. And you don’t have to live in a cave to do that, just surround yourself with nature every day! And when you have a greater appreciation of nature, you’ll have a whole new view on life—give it a try!
Think about this for a minute: how much money do people pay to have a great view outside their home? If you own a beachside home or a home with a great view of the mountains, you’ve likely spent your life savings to afford something like that. Why would you drop all your money to see the same view every day when you could have a different view every single day you wake up, for free? The more you think about it, the crazier it sounds! We’re so focused on landing that perfect job, perfect home, and perfect car that we don’t even realize that everything we wanted in life can be acquired for free! RVing will teach you how to make the most out of the money you have.
Using your creativity
RVing will allow you to express your creativity in ways that you weren’t able to previously. Did you have plans to go on a hike, but it started pouring out? You’re going to have to find some other way to keep busy and when you’re traveling because Netflix isn’t always an option. You’ll notice that over time, electronics will become less of a form of entertainment and more of a tool for being able to make money and to use in emergency situations. This used to be common knowledge, but people are so reliant on their devices nowadays for entertainment that it isn’t entirely evident now.
