Trip Planning Essentials for Comfort and Fun
Even if you plan to do a little camping or backpacking while RVing,
you can bring almost anything with you when you take to the road in
your Recreational Vehicle.There is no reason your trip can’t be
fun and comfortable! Try some of the tips below to make sure your trip
is a great one:
1. Successful Picnics:
The trickiest part of having a successful picnic is remembering everything.
Bring along a plastic tarp to put underneath the blanket in case the
ground is wet. Don’t forget the tablecloth. Paper towels are essential
for spills. Cleaning wipes for sanitizing dirty hands and faces, especially
if you have children, are also a great item to bring along.
Writing journal, art and craft supplies, books, magazines, lots of pens
and pencils, audio books, your favorite music CDs, portable CD player.
This is a good time for the kids to catch up with any required summer
reading for school.
3. Baking on the Road or Camping
To enjoy the best in baked goods on the road, quality mixes are a quick,
easy solution. Mixes make vacation life easier, because everything is
contained in one package. They are also convenient and proven, so you
know your bread, cakes, pastries and desserts will turn out well.
4. The Basics - Water and Cleaning Supplies
Bring along light snacks and a rolling cooler with cold drinks. Be sure
to include bottled water. This will help you avoid making unintended
stops. Have moist towelettes and paper towels handy for spills.
5. Stay Connected with Portable Devices
iPhones, Androids, Blackberries... Whatever you have, you can stay connected and even close that business deal you've been working on. Each
new generation of these devices is smaller, and the prices keep falling.
Plus, they’re a great way to stay in touch, and can be lifesavers
in an emergency situation. Keep your phone within easy reach and get
to know its features. Use it sensibly, however. Reports indicate that
driving while talking on the phone increases accident rates. And, with the availability of wi-fi and 3G and 4G wireless access, you can stay up on your online poker games, facebook activity, and even conduct business on the road.
6. Camping Essentials
For the campground, you will need outdoor carpet, lawn or camping chairs,
awning, and, of course, a BBQ grill.
7. Toys for the Kids
It will be to your advantage to let your children bring along their
techno gear while traveling, in spite of your policy at home for electronic
toys such as Game Boys, portable DVD players, headphones and the like.
These important assets will help to keep them relaxed while traveling,
and they will be less likely to get fed up and whine.
One final note, as you plan your roadtrip, be sure to pick campgrounds
that offer a little something for every member of your family.
