Many of you have asked.. how do we find all those great sites, have all those great adventures… as we travel around in our RV. Though we are big believers in serendipity… taking advantage of what suddenly comes our way and not being locked into an inflexible schedule… we also do our share of planning.

We like to think of a plan as a general direction, subject to change if new opportunities present themselves, but a a pointer to where we want to go and how we intend to get there.

So we’re going to show you. We use all sorts of tools to make up that plan…books, maps, guides, online resources. You can’t make a good plan without good information. In the description below, we’ll put links to the tools we’re going to show you.

Here’s the video. Below it, I will list all the resources we showed in the video:
