Taking Breaks While Traveling is Key
What are your plans for breaks? This seems like a lot of questions however we can provide some insights to help prepare for this event in your life.
Google suggests that this special event in your life of traveling across the states should take at least 9 days. But what if traffic is not ideal? It is quite likely in your travels at some point you will come across an area during the “rush” hour where everyone and their mother will be coming home from work. When these circumstances inevitably happen why not take a break? You bought an RV for leisure and fun, not to feel like you’re trapped in another vehicle in rush hour after work. So how about every two hours or so find a place to take a break at and we’re not talking about a little 5 minute break , shoot for at least 15 minutes.
What should you do on these breaks? A walk sounds lovely after being confined to a vehicle for a long period of time. Enjoy the area, scenery and take in the fresh air. Your body will surely appreciate being able to move and afterwards you will be prepared once more to take on the road. Do you have someone riding with you? If so can they drive? If you can switch drivers that gives more rest time for the previous driver and when it comes to switch again you will have a well rested, safe driver.
