It is time again for “THE QUESTION” that causes the OFM lots of misery each time he moves on.
Where are you going? Remember we are talking about RVers who usually have a few years under their belts. Here is what the conversation usually goes like.

Q. Where are you going?
A. Westerly in general.

Q. But where.
A. Just towards western Texas/New Mexico.

Q. You HAVE to know where you will stop!
A. Nope. The Teams just roll and stop when we get there.

Q. Get where?
A. Where we chose to stop.

Sometimes the conversation is more elaborate but is still essentially the same. By now they think the OFM is just being a smartass. It is impossible for most folks to understand that a boondocker capable rig does not have to have an exact plan to just roll on. Never in 12 years of Rving full time has this type of conversation come out well.

If we just say some location like XXXXX, Texas, then they try to pin us to an exact date we will get there. Why can’t we just be allowed to meander westerly? On top of that since the blog tracks us, if we don’t happen to go to XXXXX they all too often get upset we did not go there.

Q. “well then where do you have reservations?”
A. We don’t have reservations.

Q. “How do you know there will be a place for you?”
A. we don’t.

And the horrible circle of questions goes onward.

Now here is the question for our readers. How do you handle these situations?  They are not good ways of trying to have tooooo much fun.
