The Stories We Could Tell

Lessons from the Road: Part II

On May 7th, we shoved off from our campground in San Diego making this our two month road-iversary. Here are some more of the “Lessons we have Learned from the Road:”

*Every town has two staples: Chilis and Walgreens
*It only rains when you wash your car
*Always eat at the bar when you are in a new town. You are sure to meet some interesting folks, and the bartender can give you some inside info on where the locals go.
*Bank of America should be renamed “Bank of a few select states of America.” Good luck trying to make a B of A deposit in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana…. they don’t have branches in any of those states. Guess they don’t want our money!
*Free WiFi at an RV Park is a bit misleading… sure it’s free, but good luck if it works.
*Share an entree for lunch/dinner. It helps you save money, cuts calories, and doesn’t leave you feeling disgustingly full!
*We miss you family and friends!

  1. We always loved the local bars or brewpubs for getting info. No better place and people in bars tend to be very friendly! Some are very interesting!

  2. We love your blog. We could add a few more, but our lessons were from 25 years ago. We visited many of the places that you currently are seeing.
    How about:
    Pay showers in campgrounds are always too short.
    Storms typically hover over you for days on end.
    And, yes, local bars are the information centers for our country:)

    Looking forward to reading your future posts!
