Hey y'all! These awesome guys have been traveling the US in an RV for months, hitting major cities such as Austin, TX, Miami, FL, Nashville, TN, Chicago, IL and much much more. I have had a blast keeping up with their travels and frequently catching up with them about what is new on the road so it was totally necessary to update y'all on everything new with them! Don't miss out on their travels and make sure to check out their tumblr and instagram @caRVingthelane!
My favorite question to answer now adays is "where do you live?" Traveling is something that should be done by every twenty-something and a cross country RV trip was how we decided to do it. After saving as much money as we could for this gas guzzler, we quit our jobs in Massachusetts and decided to see what this country was really about. Pinterest has so many beautiful pictures of what the U.S. has to offer but we decided to see it for ourselves.
Taking this trip is much more than going from city to city and experiencing the nightlife. It can be really easy to hit a new location and get sucked into getting some margaritas and beers. We've done our share of drinking and it's been great, but it turns out the bartenders make the drinks the same way and they just speak in different accents. The inside of bars look really similar everywhere and it takes a lot more effort to make your trip memorable and exciting.
We made it to Austin after taking down the east coast and it's been a blast. We've also made our share of mistakes along the way. For those of you saddling up in your RV tomorrow, here are some tips for your trip:
Knowing people. We've been to Nashville, Chicago, Miami, Key West and everywhere in between. Some of our favorite stops? Savannah, Tampa Bay and Clevelend! Yes, Cleveland. One of our travelors actually knew an old high school buddy that lived there and he took us around and gave us the best look at the city. Not to mention a trip to the Indians game as well as a home cooked meal. Hearing stories and getting some history of Cleveland really made the stop worth while and made us realize the people are the ones who make the city. So call up that old buddy and see if he has a spare couple hours to show you around!
Keep your camera on. I can't begin to tell you how many pictures we've taken. It's in the thousands and we have some pretty breathtaking snaps (even underwater while scuba-diving) that could slapped on the front of any post card. The best part of having the camera and looking back at what we captured is watching the videos. It really gives you a sense of the mood and brings you back to the feeling of being there. Any small laughs, dumb conversations and even arguements that are caught on camera end up being some of the biggest moments looking back on them. Keep the camera rolling and having a few spare batteries to keep it going.
