We know the general destination, but that's often it. When we went to Canada, we just stopped when all of the four capable drivers were too tired to drive and slept on the ground in sleeping bags. 'Cuz we're fancy like that.

If we were in a car we may chance winging it again like we loved...

On the bikes, not so much... Hard to sleep on a solo seat! And last year it bugged me to get soaked huge dollars for a crappy room because it was getting late and riding tired is a very bad idea....

Actually... We thought of that to be honest, but decided against it fora few reasons, space being a premium on the bikes being the main one... Wet rainy days another... By the time we pack a tent, two sleeping bags etc we loose most of one bike to just camping gear

I love to wing it. Other than the first few nights in the US, our nearly 4 week trip around 12 states was very winged lol. But we were camping vs moteling. We stayed in a hotel/motel twice. Once in PA when it was very very wet and all our stuff was wet. And once in IL because it was late, we had been driving for nearly 12 hours and couldn't find a decent camp sight. Not once though did we have to sleep in the car!

Our best find was a campground in IN. We didn't like the one we had picked (I would say what direction we were going in and Maf would look at the AAA books and pick campgrounds that had what were were looking for in that direction in the morning...) got lost and found a fantastic spot in the middle of Amish country.

Camping is fun, be far easier to wing it too....

We considered a trailer for Jeff's bike so we could camp easier (bring small stove, air mattress etc) but not sure we want to have one on, may take the feel we like away.. We may borrow one and try it

Before we had kids we used to wing it and just GO but now that we have 2 little ones I have to plan. We usually make our annual trip up to San Francisco each year and we've been to San Diego. Our big family trip was to Hawaii but I wasn't able to go bc I was prego with Park.

We wing it.

Only time that has ever done me bad was coming in to Vegas last year. Yikes!

Still I would rather pay more than be stuck to a schedule.
