Everyone has a Bucket List. It might be mental. It might only have a few things on it. It might even be completely forgotten for long periods of time. It doesn’t matter. The vast majority of individuals have things they someday want to do or see and when it comes right down to it, that’s all a Bucket List is. Some aren’t aware of the fact that the RV lifestyle is completely indicative of all things Bucket List related. Many RVers were actually led to the RVing life by their own personal Bucket List. What is it about the 5th wheel toy hauler and other versatile RV choices that are so amenable to the completion of items on the lifelong “to do” list?
If it’s not obvious, the recreational vehicle is a means of getting started. For some it’s a means of continuing on until the list is complete and it’s time to start a new one because somehow the RVer has lived so much that there’s life left at the end of their Bucket List. That’s the way to go.
Consider what the 5th wheel toy hauler could do for your bucket list.
Step One: Make a Bucket List. If you have one already, you are one step ahead of the game. If you have never actually put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) because you feared that putting your “to dos” down on paper would somehow make it less likely they would be achieved, stop procrastinating. There’s no need to go into an entire lecture on goal setting and achieving, but if we must…we will. Write it down.
Step Two: Pick a starting point. Most people don’t actually start at number one on their Bucket List. Don’t get hung up on the numerical order, your personal preferences or even location. It’s recommended that RVers simply pick the thing that would be easiest to complete and do it.
Step Three: Consider how good it felt to mark something off that list.
Step Four: Make a plan. Pick a group of items on the list and make your next RV trip a Bucket List trip. Example Bucket List trips submitted by previous Pedata customers included the following “to dos” marked off in one trip. Trip One – Milk a cow, sing in the rain, sleep on the ground in the outdoors, paddle a canoe, climb a mountain and eat something disgusting. Trip Two – Write a letter to the editor of a local newspaper, create a photo journal, take an art class, adopt a pet, see Niagara Falls, and leave a huge tip. Trip Three – Learn to ride a bike, swim in the ocean, eat octopus, see a shark, ride a roller coaster, and go hunting.
Step Five: Create an easy method of accessing your list. You never know when you might be able to mark something off. Fold a copy up and carry it in your wallet. If your smartphone offers a note section, add a Bucket List to your list of…well, lists. Having them written down was the first step, but now that you’re moving you’ll want to keep them very accessible because you’re going to want to jump in your fifth toy hauler at a moment’s notice for future Bucket List trips.
The fifth wheel toy hauler or other RV isn’t necessary in order to successfully complete a Bucket List. It’s just a really handy tool to have around. Don’t mess around the next time you leave home and head out on the open road. Go out with purpose and experience life the way you’ve always meant to.
