    Great advice

    Carol offers many resources, things you ought to consider to do before you venture off on your dream road trip. Things like, if anything should happen to you while you are on the road, reviewing your will, power of attorney etc., these things who wants to think about them? Well, they are important. Questions like, 'if you aren¿t going to be living in your RV, can you life in your truck? or car?' That is an interesting question. I would highly recommend this book even for little road trips, it is full of insightful ideas in making your trip a fun and safe one.¿

    Go for it!

    This book gets you to deal with all the hard decisions about leaving your kid/grandkids/pets/old life behind, missing important dates/ what to do with the house, how to budget...... all the excuses why you never did this road trip til now! But in the end, the book encourages you to finally take time for yourself! If you've never taken an extended holiday - JUST GO DO IT! And this book provides you with all the inspiration and handholding that you'll ever need. No more excuses. Just read this book and you'll be on your way if you really ever truly want to do this trip in your lifetime. Anyone who has ever dreamed of traveling all 48 states or Europe or going wherever their dream destination is should get this book. I once spent a year traveling and it basically changed my life. It took me nine years to return home for good and I find this book inspiring me to take another long trip. At least now I'd have a comprehensive checklist of what to do and not to forget, handy in this time of senior's moments. This book guides you through all the million little details that you will need to make decisions on when you go and when you're on the road. I can't think of anything that they've missed EXCEPT having more scenic pictures 'maybe without that van please!' and somehow making the first half of the book a bit more visually stimulating. I'm sure that they've got a ton of inspiring photos of places that they've traveled to. As I'm not an RVer or camper, I really appreciated the fact that they stayed in motels/hotels and not just campgrounds. It's nice to know that while their budget was pretty good, that it's possible to do it cheaper too.
