So, you’ve packed up your RV and you are ready to hit the road for an epic camping trip! If you are an inexperienced camper, you might not be aware of the potential risks or things that could cause your trip to go awry.

As an avid outdoorsman, Dean Buescher enjoys all aspects of the adventurous outdoor lifestyle, from skiing and boating to grilling and camping. Today he shares the 3/3/3 rule for camping so you can save yourself from a major headache on your trip. 

  1. Drive no more than 300 miles per day you travel. It would take roughly five or six hours to drive that far. You want to abide by this rule so you have plenty of time to make it to the campground.
  2. Arrive at the campground before 3 pm. The reason for this is because many campgrounds only have attendants during the day before 3. In order to make sure someone is there if something goes wrong, arrive in the early afternoon.
  3. Plan to stay in the camping spot for at least 3 days, simply because it takes a lot of effort to set up at a camping spot. You’ll probably just get way too stressed out if you’re constantly going from campsite to campsite.
