Marv misses being a project manager, Belle enjoyed her career as an accountant
Someone in the full-time RVer world, who likely had a career in some highly structured profession, came up with a system for proper travel. Some people call it the Rule of Twos and it's something like this:
Drive no more than 200 miles a dayEh, that’s an adequate plan for the type of people who need plans. You probably don’t want to wear yourself out by driving long distances. You don’t want to arrive someplace too late to get a space or be setting up in the dark. And if you go to the trouble of getting somewhere, it doesn’t make much sense to be dashing off.
Arrive at your destination before 2:00PM
Stay at least two days
I’m not a systematized person. I resist structure unless there’s a compelling reason, like getting paid. So I give the Rule of Twos two middle fingers. This is my life, my golden years, so I’m going to do it however I please. And probably not the same way twice. At least not on purpose.
Here are some variations on the Rule of Twos.
Stay up until 2:00AM
Drive two miles
Stay two months
Cross two state lines
Give a lift to two hitchhikers
Stay twenty miles from the nearest human
Walk 2,000 yards
Take 200 photos
Publish two of them in the blog
Plan tomorrow’s route twiceYou could make your own Rule of Twos. And it doesn’t need to be two. It can be whatever. Yeah, that’s it: the Rule of Whatever. Whatever you want. Whatever you feel like. Whatever works for you.
Change the plan two more times
Stay in bed another two hours
