"Live Your Road Trip Dream" is written
in two sections, each designed for a different part of planning
your own trip.
1 - The Plan
What we heard time and again from people both at home and on the
road, is that they would love to do a year-long trip like
we did, but they don't have a clue how to begin getting themselves
organized to actually make it happen.
This section gives you all the information you need to plan your
own road trip of a lifetime - whatever that is for you. Take a trip
around the United States like we did, or a long trek through Asia,
or a motor home trip through Europe, or a sailboat trip around the
world. We have included worksheets, budgets, common sense, a little
psychology, and humor to help you on your way to wherever your dream
Part 2 - The Trip
What's it really like to be on the road, away from home,
every day for a year?
It's important is to get a feel for what it is like to travel for
an extended period of time. Our road trip was in a camping van;
your trip may be by boat or hiking - whatever your mode
of movement the same principles apply.
This section will reveal a lot about the issues that we faced and
how we handled them "on the fly." No matter how prepared you are
for your adventure, each day will be endured or enjoyed based on
how you react to all the scenarios you will face. It is also part
of what makes the journey a trip of a lifetime.
