For those of you who DON'T plan ahead - when DO you make plans? Do you just look at where you are at 5pm, and make some calls?
Any insights would be appreciated!
PS We have a Thor Siesta, Class C - done friends with a van don't worry much, and I suspect people with big class A's don't move every day.
Above all relax and have fun...that is the point isn't it.
How much planning do you do in general? Shop for a week's worth of groceries and have every meal planned out? Or you just wing it and grab each days dinner when you're hungry? Same thing goes here...
We've done both: Plan each stop and make reservations well in advance, or at a late afternoon stop figure how much more we want to drive and start calling.. In one case you know exactly how far you have to drive and in the other you just stop when you feel like it (after you've made a few drives those two values approach each other as you get used driving the RV).
