What It Means To Us

There is a saying, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

While the saying’s origins are fuzzy, its meaning is clear. If you are on a long journey, you will go farther with others at your side. There is no longer a journey in life, and you will need others. Those with you on the journey will help you overcome the obstacles you are sure to face. Go Together Go Far is about that.

Don’t let fate alone determine who your traveling companions will be. I want to ensure that my wife and children are by my side on this journey. As a result, Niki and I purposely chose camping and RVing as a mechanism to achieve that outcome. Camping as a family has a variety of benefits that act as step stones to our goal. Also, Niki wanted an option for a shower and a toilet, so tents were never going to cut it.

Camping is multifaceted. It isn’t just about popping a tent and getting an uncomfortable night’s sleep. When we camp, we have a goal in mind. Often, it is to get out of the house and away from the day-to-day tasks. That’s a good goal. Other times, we travel to a different city to explore something there. Camping is a means to that end. That’s a good goal too.

Not every goal works out as we planned. For instance, it can rain. Sometimes the kids are grumpy. Firewood is too green to burn. Maybe I’m grumpy. But that is part of it. Camping is an excellent microcosm of life. You can’t control it all and need to learn to overcome the challenges it offers as a team and as a family.

Practice Makes Perfect

So this is how we choose to practice overcoming life’s challenges. Camping. I know camping isn’t some vast, grand event that happens once and changes lives. Regular camping trips are a series of small events. It is about consistency over intensity. My twins are young enough not to remember all of these camping trips and the time spent together. They will remember the feeling of family and being together, though.

Maybe someday, when we have a significant life challenge to get through, the kids will know how to rely on each other. It will be something they have done before because of camping.

Hi, my name is Andy. I have been camping my whole life. I started camping with my parents as a little kid and remember hanging out around a campfire roasting marshmallows. As I got older, car camping was a regular occurrence. After I got married and started a family, we decided we wanted to share the travel and camping experience with our kids. Out of that experience, this site, GoTogetherGoFar.com, was born.
