Where to Start When Planning an RV Vacation




If you’re considering renting an RV for a vacation, you may not know where to start.  Renting an RV is a little different than renting a regular car, and you need to find an RV rental company to do it.  Here is what you need to do if you’re considering renting an RV for your next vacation.

 
What’s The First Step?

The first step is deciding if renting an RV is really right for your family.  You also need to decide where you are going to go?  If you rent an RV, are you going to have to drive to your destination, and how much time will that take?  Also, you will need to decide what type of RV is right for you.  Depending on your budget, you can go low-end or high-end, and the amenities of the RV reflect the price you pay. 


How Much Does It Cost?

Depending on your budget, and RV can be a cost effective or high-end vacation.  There are RVs to meet everyone’s needs, but a recent study found that a 13-day RV rental will average $2,000, which equals about $150 per day.  That is on par with a mid-priced hotel room.  Also, considering your RV can probably hold your entire family, you save on airfare and other costs.

However, you usually have to pay for mileage with an RV, which is around $0.30 per mile, and you will also need to pay for fuel.  With gas around $3.50 per gallon, that could add up to quite a bit of money.  You also need to consider insurance, like simple caravan insurance, since your regular auto insurance may not cover you. 


What Are The Best RV Destinations?

The best RV destinations are usually national and state parks.  These places usually have great campgrounds with lots of things to do, and can accommodate an RV with all the amenities.  State parks also have well maintained roads, which is good for driving an RV, especially if you’re a beginner.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic?
