My fiancé and I are eloping in Asheville, NC and finally booked our Airbnb. We made a last minute decision to only book it for the first 4 nights instead of the 9 we were planning because we had the crazy idea to road trip the rest. I’m pretty sure we’re having a collective late 20s crisis, but that’s okay.
We have some ideas of places we’d like to see, but we’ve never done this! We have 5 days unplanned and Asheville is about 8 hours south of where we live. I took off an additional 4 days to indulge in a staycation when we get back and I’m trying to convince him to do the same so we have more time to road trip.
I’m wondering if we should consider renting a camper van? It seems like a good idea but I imagine it’s out of our budget. We normally tent camp but it’s still going to be cold in the mountains and camping gear will be a lot to pack into our little hatchback along with our outfits and everything else. We could also book motel rooms last minute and of course just sleep in the car if needed.
How did you plan and pack for your road trip?
