This question is a bit tough for me to answer because there are so many things I like about RVing that it’s hard to narrow it down to one favorite. I have over time come up with my answer, but it definitely took some thought.
Obviously there’s getting to see so many neat things in person, the joy of experiencing something new and being able to say “I was there.” Then there are all the interesting people you meet, and the convenience of being able to visit friends and relatives for extended periods of time without imposing on anyone’s hospitality. Another high point would be the freedom of a less rigid schedule and the flexibility to balance life and work better. And lets not forget how you grow as a person, learning more about yourself once you escape the rut of 9 – 5 living and discover what you’re capable of as you handle the ups and downs of life on the road.
I love all of these aspects of fulll-timing, but often it’s the moments of quiet contentment that I enjoy the most. The times when it feels like, at least for a while, all aspects of your life are in balance and getting the attention they need. When the regrets of the past, the need-to-do’s of today, and the worries about the future fall away to let the beauty of the moment shine through.
Which may be like cheating, because for me at least these moments are founded on having some of everything in that third paragraph, as well as having the money and resources to take care of my basic needs. It’s like saying my favorite part is all of it put together. Which is true in a sense, it’s the balance between work and life, adventure and a feeling of home and security, having fun with people and enjoying quiet time by myself, the wild joy of experiencing the world in all it’s wonder, and the moments of quiet self-contemplation. In the end, what I love most about RVing is that feeling of having enough, not just of money but of everything else I want too. What’s yours?
