Old Man Winter is no friend of the adventurer who loves driving his or her motorhome. Even though the winter can make for some great cold-weather activities, it’s much more difficult (and dangerous even) to drive a large motorhome during the snowy season. With safety in mind, it makes sense to store your rig for the winter and wait it out till spring.
If you’re dealing with the sadness that sets in when you can’t take your motorhome out on the road, then you aren’t alone. Luckily, here’s how you can deal with the winter blues of not driving your motorhome.
Plan Trips For Spring
The moment that the roads clear and the weather improves in the spring, it’s the perfect chance for you to get out there to enjoy your motorhome. Therefore, plan out your trips for spring as you wait during the winter. In some cases, campgrounds may even require months of notice beforehand. By planning well in advance, you can make sure that you get the best spots available when spring rolls around. It also doesn’t hurt that setting your sights on an awesome spring vacation can also help the winter pass as well.
Look Back At Your Last Adventure
While you wait to get out on your next trip, look back at all your amazing adventures from last year. Your family videos are fun to pull out when guests are over during the holidays, and it’s also a good chance for you to reminisce over what a great time you had. In addition, keep in mind the things that you may have missed out on last year. When the weather improves and you finally get out this upcoming spring, you can make up for any missing moments you have in those family videos.
Visit Your Rig
True love simply can’t be held apart. When you can’t go on any longer, visit your rig during the winter season. While you’re visiting, go through all of your winter maintenance to make sure it’s running well. Seeing the paint of your rig or smelling its interior will help to remind you of all the good times you’re going to have when winter finally goes away.
Connect With Others
You’re not the only person who is missing the feeling of taking out their motorhome. Look to find support from others who are going through the same withdrawal as you, as this can help you get through the winter season. Reconnect with friends you’ve met while traveling, look for local meetups, or hop online to find others who share your passion. Not only will you make it through the winter, but you may also find some great new friends to travel with.
Winter may seem endless when you want to take your motorhome out on the road. Luckily, the season will soon end and you’ll be out there before you know it. But in order to help you get through the season, keep these tips in mind for dealing with the winter blues of not driving your motorhome.
