Don’t over plan too much. Things always change, places pop up, things go wrong, things go right, just roll with it and see where the adventure takes you. You’ll probably end up finding an amazing spot you feel connected to and won’t wanna leave for a few days. Who knows, just appreciate everything along the way.
FOLLOW THE SUN
If things don’t work out or the weather changes, don’t be afraid to bail on that plan and chase the good weather. The weather can change a lot within even just an hours drive, check the weather and move on if need be, most things are more enjoyable with the sun on your side, and no one likes a damp van.
DON’T STOP MOVING
Although it can be easy to settle into holiday mode, it’s important to keep active to keep your energy and endorphins high, especially after a long drive. Maybe even do a free gym trial or go for a swim at the local swimming pool and make use of the facilities and showers so you can feel refreshed and clean after days on the road.
