Should I Camp, Hotel, AirBnb, Sleep on the Side of the Road?
Honestly the route was the toughest step to get done, but by far the second is how to sleep, stay, and be comfortable at night. We all have our routines, and I am just like everybody else that way. So walk through my thought process with me, albeit a scary one, and let me know your thoughts on this.
I know I am a solo traveler, and GASP, a woman, but I know how to handle myself. That being said, I don’t know how many times I still get the “YOU’RE TRAVELING ALONE??? BY YOURSELF?” Yes, that’s what solo means. Lol I know dangers lurk around every corner, but I also know self defense and I try to always be aware of my surroundings. Also if you constantly live in fear for what COULD go wrong you will always miss out on what could go RIGHT. ALL THAT TO BE SAID….I have NEVER done an Air BnB before and would LOVE some insight on them and if they are SAFE. It sounds like an awesome time to stay with strangers who could be potentially new friends, or they murder me in my sleep, so there’s that.
Camping- so my family owned a Camping Resort while I grew up, yes, bet some of you didn’t know that! So I know how to fish, camp, start a fire, etc… even go frogging and cook up frog legs – DO NOT TELL KERMIT- HE WOULD NEVER SPEAK TO ME AGAIN! I feel like I know how to take care of myself camping, but it is A LOT of work, and how fun would it be alone? Would other campers invite me over for a sit and chat? Would I want to? Is it safe? Will bears eat me in the middle of the night? So many questions….
Hotels are the easiest and the most expensive. Even if I spend $50 a night, that’s adding up REAL fast! I don’t mind Super 8’s and Red Roof Inns on the road because it’s usually just for the sleep and that’s it, but some of them don’t clean as well as they should and with Covid still being around I’m sure when I hit the road, it makes me nervous. Last summer I stayed at several and wiped down everything I touched when staying at ANY hotel. It’s the risk I take I guess.
I have several homes lined up and people to stay with, so that will help to get some love/friendship on the road. I need it for my soul…I can only be alone so long before I crave human interaction… won’t apologize for it, just who I am, can’t do anything about it. So for those of you who have offered, I will se you, and I APPRECIATE the help. It means you like me, you believe in me, and that will NEVER go unnoticed!!
Let me know what YOU would do, where you would stay, etc… I am driving my car, not flying. No, I can’t afford an RV and no I don’t have a van to sleep in. Just answering the questions I KNOW people will ask LOL Yes, this is my adventure and I AM ready for it, just trying to find the most economical way of enjoying it with me, myself, and I….. HAH, see, I’m not alone, I have two others with me!! Yep, I’m going crazy…join the ride.
