When and How to Get in the RV and Go

Home » When and How to Get in the RV and Go

When most people take a vacation, they plan well in advance. They save, search for deals, make reservations, and look forward to the day. What happens, however, when that day is simply too far away? Sometimes, we need to get away sooner, rather than later. There could be any number of reasons why. Perhaps, a major event leaves us in need of some time to process. Or, life has been too overwhelming of late. Maybe, you’re simply tired, or a sudden, strong urge overtakes you to be somewhere different.

Get in your RV and go somewhere.

Sometimes, you just need to get away. Your mental health may even depend upon it. And, while there are a number of ways to do so, an RV becomes a helpful tool. It offers you many potential ways to make this desire or need a reality, and there are ways to make it happen.

If You Need It to be Cheap: It doesn’t have to cost a lot to get away. You don’t have to save for months, or even years. If you already have your RV, that’s one less thing you have to buy. In fact, all you need is gas money to get you where you want to go, food money that’s just enough to keep you from going hungry—or to keep you alive if you’re on a really tight budget—and money for RV parks and camping sites, if those are your destinations. Overall, you can go as far as you can afford.

Sometimes, a Weekend Will Do: You don’t always need a lengthy vacation. Sometimes, all you need is a couple of days. You can pack quickly and take off for the weekend. If you want to go somewhere a little farther, request a partial Friday off. If there’s still some concern, offer to make up the time. You never know how easygoing a boss will be until you ask. Sometimes, it helps to be honest if you’re feeling overwhelmed and need some rest to come back in refreshed. In these cases, all you need are a few easy-to-acquire days.

If You Need More Time: If what you really need is an extended vacation, that may take a little more planning. However, if you’re up against some strong anxiety and need the time sooner, rather than later, talk to your superiors. Again, sometimes honesty is best; you never know how well the conversation may go. You can request some work-from-home time. If your work is the sort that can be done via the phone, internet, etc., then perhaps you can negotiate a way for you to be on the road with the RV, and still getting work accomplished. Even though that means it will not be a true “vacation,” sometimes the extra freedom and change of scenery is enough.

Of course, there are times in life when doing all of this simply isn’t possible without problematic repercussions related to your job, money, and other responsibilities. However, taking care of yourself should be a priority, so the possibility of getting into the RV and getting away is worth examining. When you’re ready to do so, consider coming to Bethy Creek. There is plenty here to help you enjoy your time off, whenever you’re able to get it.
