Now, I will admit that sometimes my brain is sorely lacking stimulation…and I’m not sure if the following was stimulation, or simply boredom. However, I do think my results are quite interesting.
One day as I was traveling to Texas on a road similar to the one above, though considerably busier than this one, I became focused on how many RVs there were on the northbound side of the road. Of course, at first I was just jealous, because all those people were headed for places I would like to be going. But alas, my TT was waiting for me down in Texas, where I had left it for the majority of the winter.
There were a LOT of 18-wheelers on the road, but there were also a LOT of RVs!!! My little pea-brain decided I should count how many RVs I saw compared to the number of semis. I counted for a rather large number of miles, and then did it again later in the day, just to substantiate the claims I am about to make. I came up with an average of 1 RV to every 19 semis. Then, I thought…that’s not really a fair accounting of how many people are RVing…I need to eliminate the semis from my count.
At that point, I started counting passenger vehicles compared to RVs. Low and behold, I actually ended up with…1 RV to every 9 cars. That means that 10% of the population is traveling in RVs!! How smart are they?!? I wish there had been a way to know how many were full timers opposed to part timers. I’ll have to work on that one!
Ya’ll have lots of fun…and be safe!!
