Road trip Touring are roadtrippers getting the best advice?

Jump to last reply

Coming back to this with thoughts of recent posts here and elsewhere.

Most of us who are regular contributors to these forums either Live here or have at least one or more trips here under our belts.. Some who come onto the forum have never been.. have been saving and planning for years.. might have one and only opportunity to visit.

Given that situation then I don't think it is unreasonable for a new visitor to consider a road trip, indeed the only way many can fit in just some of what they want is a road trip.. We can of course advise against such a venture and use the influence of our own preferences,, but far too often it seems that even those who express the preference to take a roadtrip approach are being discouraged rather than guided.. I have a regular saying of you need a helicopter for that or see UPS and get some parcels to drop whilst you are at it. However I do try and give some practical guidance on road trips advise against detours well out of the way and point out some shortfalls.. Not sure if any of that translates into a language which will be understood (i am often misconstrued) but perhaps a more open minded approach could be given on the roadtrip question for those wishing to take that path?
