Taking the unbeaten path has the potential to add a lot more fond memories. For the sake of argument, I’m going to assume that almost everyone reading this post has read or heard “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost. If you can’t remember all the way back to High School, it’s the one that ends:
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
Let me first state that this is not an English lesson, or even a life lesson; it’s an RV lesson. Essentially, taken literally and in a language we can all understand, when the traveler in the poem comes upon a fork in the road he chose the unbeaten path. Why? The unfamiliar road was a detour where he could potentially find an entirely new world of sights, sounds and opportunities.
Vacationing? Remember, it’s not where you are going and fast you get there, but where you are going and HOW you get there. Some of my fondest traveling memories started as nothing more as just a fork in the road.
Here are some informative travel sites you should visit before you sit down to plan your RV vacation:
Can anyone share some good stories about taking the road less traveled?
