MEMORIES ARE MADE HERE
Call them patterns, habits, traditions or even OCD. There is something uniquely comforting in having a daily habit or two, a touchstone for your day. When you’re on the go it's hard sometimes to stay in touch with the real You, the woman who starts every day by filling the bird feeder or taking a lavender shower or drinking a cup of hot Earl Grey with fireweed honey and a wee drop of cream.
Would your RV travels be more enriching, inviting, comforting if you adopt a routine or habit that becomes a cherished tradition when you’re on the go? Some of us get into the RV to get away, yet old patterns may mean a lot too. As you travel in your RV, here are some traditions you might start now to treasure as long as you live.
Traditions For You Alone
* Start every day with a prayer or meditation in the cockpit with its view of the outside world. Or do a tai chi workout at sunrise.
* Start a quilt with a new square for every special place you visit. Vow to learn a new French irregular verb each day, or a sonnet or Psalm.
* Start a diary devoted solely to your RV travels, experiences, thoughts, plans, fears. Join networks on the Internet or ham radio.
Traditions For the RV
* Everyday habits bring sameness and sanity to life on the road. Food traditions are always good. Bean soup and cornbread every Saturday night? Celebrate the first Friday of the month with dinner and a movie? Set aside every other Tuesday for RV housecleaning and maintenance followed by a Chinese takeout dinner?
* One very practical habit to adopt is to walk completely around the RV every morning to check for anything amiss: a leak, a flat tire, a loose panel, a sagging slide.
* Birthday and holiday traditions don’t always work if you’re on the go. Cupcakes instead of a big layer cake? Cornish game hens instead of a big Thanksgiving turkey? Get online to send yellow roses to your sister on her anniversary?
* You might start an on-board corkboard of photos and souvenirs. Start a Fun Fund where loose change goes at the end of each day. When the kitty is full, splurge on a special outing.
* Decide on dates when you will look back, look ahead, take stock and set goals having to do with the RV. Think if them as promises to yourself. Instead of chafing over everyday annoyances, save your wants and gripes for times when you take full inventory.
Traditions For the Campground
* Could you adopt a tradition that others will remember you for? Become known as the woman who makes that famous casserole or those delicious hazelnut cookies for the potluck. Or the woman who makes potholders for the clubhouse kitchen, embroiders them with Jenny Was Here, and leaves two behind at each place she visits.
* Everyone who has ever camped with him remembers the fellow who came out of his RV at sunset each day and played Taps as the flag was correctly lowered and stowed.
Memories. When it comes to RV travel, the best ones are waiting just over the next hill.
