Herzog Family RV "Road Trip" Tips

R  RESEARCH
(Start at GoRVing.com to view options for types of RVs, where to go and what to do.)

O  ORGANIZE TO MAXIMIZE
(Planning well actually allows for spontaneity.)
 
A  APPRECIATE THE JOURNEY
(The big windshield of an RV is like a movie of America unfolding before your eyes.)
 
D  DINE IN
(Save money, eat healthy. Dining out should be an option, not an obligation.)
 
T  TIME IT WELL
(Pay attention to time of year, time of day when planning a visit.)

(Take advantage of the comforts of home kitchen, beds, TVs, bathroom.)
 
I  INTELLECTUALIZE
