No. 4: Something is bound to go wrong We’ve all been there – or at least feared being there. You accidentally lock your keys in the car, discover a flat tire or god forbid the AC stops working in the dead heat of summer. Before you book your rental, make sure that the service you’re using comes with 24/7 roadside assistance and customer support, so you’re not alone out there, no matter the situation.
No. 5: You have to sleep in a Walmart parking lot It’s great for groceries, but there’s more appealing places out there to spend the night. Check in to one of the more than 500 Kampgrounds of America (KOA) campgrounds at your fingertips in the U.S. and Canada, or park your rig for the night at one of Canada’s breathtaking provincial parks (Banff will change your life). Pro tip: Free, social forum apps like iOverlander can be a helpful lifeline in pointing you toward a free campsite to spend the night. TRAVEL OFTEN . LIVE WELL . 71
