We have all read the reports touting the benefits of RV travel. It is family friendly, you get to sleep in your own bed every night, no hassles at the airport such as security and over booked flights, no worries about bed bugs, you can prepare your own healthy meals instead of eating fatty restaurant fare, pet friendly, go where you want when you want, it’s considerably more economical than flying, staying in a hotel and eating out every meal, etc, etc. I totally agree with all these reasons, plus a laundry list of others. But one of the major benefits, which I never hear mentioned, is that the view at mealtime is always better than some chain brand eatery along a major urban thoroughfare would offer. With an RV, you can linger over breakfast while watching the sun rise over your favorite lake, you can stop for lunch along a babbling mountain stream, enjoy afternoon tea on a mountain pass and eat dinner in the desert while watching the moon rise over the horizon, just to name a few possibilities. Can Denny’s offer that? I don’t think so! Oh, and I almost forgot to mention, reservations are never required.
Views and vittles, one of the best adventures in RVing.
