But thankfully I found a solution to my traveling woes—an RV.
I like the idea of traveling and the times when I get to see gorgeous mountains, valleys, lakes, and rivers. However, I hate the process of traveling itself. In the best case scenario, I have to enter an airport and get processed through TSA just so I can sit in a first class plane seat for several hours or the course of a day if there are layovers. Driving is even worse, regardless of whether or not you have another driver. Sooner or later you’ll have to stop at a hotel somewhere and this is by far the thing I hate the most about road trips. The nasty motels and hotels along the way leave distressing memories in my mind. I wouldn’t even want to bring my suit cases up to my room in these situations, and would take out my sleeping bag so I could sprawl out on top of the dirty covers. I tried to push these memories out of my head, especially on subsequent trips around the country later in my older adulthood. You have to deal with the negatives if you want to enjoy traveling to this degree. But thankfully I found a solution to my traveling woes—an RV. If I could find an affordable RV with a good heating and cooling system inside to keep me warm or cool depending on the season, I would be absolutely thrilled. That way I can find a place to park and stay comfortable and prevent being contaminated by mold spores in a dirty hotel room. An RV a/c wouldn’t have nasty odors either.
