Rules of the Road (courtesy of Round America)
Rule 1: See the real world. Stay off the interstate highways
Rule 2: Eat pie. Eat where the locals eat. Avoid franchised restaurants. “Slow food” rather than fast food.
Rule 3: See the sights that others miss. Don’t visit many theme parks.
Rule 4: Plan to enjoy the unexpected. When something catches your eye, check it out
Rule 5: Try new things - new places, new people, new food, new experiences
Rule 6: Stop and smell the roses - or whatever. No need to rush; enjoy the journey
Rule 7: Think local. Listen to local radio stations; read local paper; watch local TV.
Rule 8: Make the best of every situation. If it seems boring, or ugly or wrong, look again.
Rule 9: Be smart. Be safe. Be prepared. Exercise every day. Keep the gas tank full.
Rule 10: Preserve the experience. Maintain a journal; keep records, and take lots of photos.
