The story behind the RV calendar and planner…
The idea for this RV planner came to me spontaneously two years ago. It was Fall, and I realized that I would need a new planner soon, but I did not want to get rid of that year’s calendar, because it was the only record I had of every campground we had stayed in during our first year as fulltime RVers. We were travelling fast that year and were moving to a new campground about every 4 days. We had covered a lot of ground, and we had written the names of each campground and their location in my calendar as we booked each one. Looking back through the campground names and places brought back so many memories, and I could not bear to throw it away.
So, I decided to keep it, but I wanted a better option for the future. One that would be a better keepsake, but also one that would cater to our needs as fulltime RVers.
I started searching, but to my amazement, I could find nothing! I could not find a single RV calendar and planner.
My very next thought was…fine, I can make one myself then.
I started making my plans, determining what I wanted to include and how I wanted it to look. On our travel days, I took a notebook with me in the truck and jotted down ideas for the RV calendar. I made sketches and lists of everything I wanted in an RV planner. I knew I wanted it to function as an organizational tool that would keep the important information we needed on the road at our fingertips. I also wanted it to be functional and to help me with RV checklists. It was also important that it would be durable enough to handle life on the road, but also have an artistic design so that I would enjoy seeing it each day.
As I spent more time on it, I realized that if I wanted a RV calendar and planner, then other RVers probably did too! I broadened what I wanted to include to accommodate fulltime and part-time RVing, so that any RVer could use it. I also wanted it to be a great option for those looking for a gift for RVers, something unique and meaningful to show them that you are excited about their travels.
I designed The Original Planner for RVers from scratch. Then, I worked with a Pennsylvania printer to have the work printed. I knew I wanted this RV calendar and planner to be Made in the USA.
And that is how The Original Planner for RVers came to be for 2017. It started with my own desire to stay organized in our travels and have a keepsake to remind us of all the wonderful places we have been.
My goal for our RV calendar and planner…
And now, I offer this RV calendar and planner to serve that same purpose for you! I hope it helps to keep you on budget so that you can travel more. I hope it organizes your important information like road side assistance, maintenance and more so that you can keep your RV on the road and have what you need in the event of an emergency. I hope that each month’s quotes inspire you to be courageous and explore this world. I hope that our Dream Big! features aid you in setting goals and accomplishing them. I hope that our many RV living checklists make you feel confident in the RV lifestyle. I hope this planner becomes a heartwarming keepsake for many years to come.
And, most of all, I hope The Original Planner for RVers is your companion as you wander freely in 2018.
And, yes, I plan to design this RV calendar and planner each year and make it available to RVers everywhere!
