2/2/2 Rule in RVing can keep you enjoying travel on the road
I’ve been RVing and camping for 20 years now and have recently started to hear about this thing called the 2/2/2 Rule. I just ignored it at first, but I kept seeing it everywhere. I did a little digging to find out what it was. It’s a simple rule that some RVers plan their travels by.
Rule #1: Only travel 200 miles a day. Rule 1 is the most difficult of the three to abide by. Traveling long distances in the shortest time frame sometimes is the only way to do it. However, if you have time to meander your way across the land, plan to stick to 200 miles daily; you will be happier for less distance traveled.
Rule #2: Stop every 2 hours. Pulling over every 2 hours for a pit stop is a good idea. It gives you and your passengers time to stretch your legs, take a potty break or see what roadside attractions there are near. Stopping to get snacks is always a great option.
Rule #3: Find your overnight spot before 2 pm. Finding your camping spot by 2 pm allows enough time to set up camp and enjoy the rest of the afternoon. This rule is the best in the bunch. Have you ever tried to set up camp in the pitch black? Not fun!
In planning your next trip, implement this 2/2/2 Rule for maximum enjoyment. It may become the RV rule you can’t live without.
