Destination?



Tioga George Destination Hint

9am- When planning your RV trip, do you want to know your destination? Do you research to know all about the place? Make reservations for a campsite?

Most times, the Tioga George RV Team doesn't do any of these things. We don't want to know anything about where we are going. When we will get there. What we will be doing there. Where we will camp.

If you are looking for an RV adventure, just head out.

You might be thinking, "Just head out?! Has Tioga George lost his mind?

Have you followed my Blog for awhile? Especially during the MsTioga days? Did you wonder how MsTioga and I found spectacular adventures? 


No plan RV adventures
Planning takes nearly all the wonder and excitement from an RV trip. Reservations = Being at a certain place, at a certain time.
Don't do that to yourself!

Begin traveling each RV day without knowing where you are going or when you will get there.

Right now, picture yourself taking the wheel of your RV at the beginning of your day. Maybe 10 miles or so down the road you come to a:
  • Gorgeous river
  • Museum
  • Nice looking restaurant
  • Interesting town
  • Whatever
After parking your RV, you explore a little. Then you think to yourself:
"Wow! This is nice!"
  
You have sooooo many options at this point. You may decide to camp there. For as long as you wish. Or explore for a bit, then head out again. The most important thing is, that you are not tied down to plans that you made.

Plans that were made WITHOUT knowing about this place that you just found this morning.

  • Just finished breakfast. 
  • Cabinet drawers are coming along. Figured out how full extension slides attach to the cabinet.
  • Off to 24 Hour Fitness. Now going every other day to 24 Hour.

5pm - Baby Boid Jumps!
Something very important happened this afternoon!

Ever since Baby Boid became part of the family, I've been asking him:
"Jump-jump, Baby Boid." 

Baby Boid never jumped on me. He allowed me to pet him. And hold him with my thumb and index finger while he was in his cage. But he was skittish about going on my finger when I held my finger against his chest.

However, this afternoon when I returned from 24 Hour Fitness, I knew right away, something had changed. Without me asking Baby Boid to jump, he jumped on his own. On to the arm of the La-Z-Boy recliner where I was sitting.

I asked Boid, "What's up with you?" Boid didn't answer. He kept exploring. Up my pants leg. Then jumped on my shirt. Climbed right up to my face, and looked around!

I didn't want to mess this special moment up by reaching for iPhone to take a pic of Boid walking on me. I did capture one pic though!

Boid is sooooo courageous and friendly!

  1. Jim and I rarely planned anything while full-timing. We loved the adventure of heading toward _____ and soaking up the beauty along the way. When we reached ______, we explored that area. When we were in UT, we joke about driving 440 miles roundtrip to have a steak dinner! We left in the morning without plans, got caught up with the geological formations, and the rest is history.

  2. That's the way we like to travel too, but this year to many people tag along, but soon we will break loose for a while. Having fun is the best part.

  3. Sometimes I head for a certain place, then at the exit, pass it by and keep going. That's such a feeling of having control over my life. Going where I want, when I want, and then changing my mind at the last minute. And sometimes I have no plan to leave a place, wake up in the morning, and start packing up, and I'm on the road again. It's really nice to have wheels under my house. :)

    1. Yes, Barbara!

      Adventuring in an RV is the only way for me! And by your comment, for you too.

      PS: Little Scampy and I plan to be on-the-road again around the beginning of February!

  4. We always "just head out" and decide along the way where we are going and how long we are staying. We have only made reservations a hand full of times and then only the day or two before we arrive. That is why it is an "adventure" and nor a "tour".

  5. In April, we're heading out to the state of San Luis Potosi. We know some parts but want to explore back roads. Once we're to the city of SLP, we will take the first road west that we find. Two weeks will give us an opportunity to discover new places.

    1. Hi LBM,

      Do you actually boondock camp in Mexico?

      I hardly did any camping in the boondocks while in Mexico. Preferred to camp in small towns, to be close to the people.

    2. Wow George. I guess you never took a look at my blog. We stay on desolate beaches, mountain passes, ranches, wherever we can find a place. Once in awhile, to accommodate friends or a special event we'll stay in an rv park although we don't care much for that. Mexico also has many state and national parks where we like to stay also. We like to be away from the crowds. I live full-time and work in Mexico so I like get away from the crowds. I don't have the luxury of being retired yet.
