DW is in charge of aggravating me. After 3 yrs traveling she still can't read a map or work the GPS. If I ask, she will put in a CD. She does close the inside and do a walk around.

I'd like to add to the person that said you could stay in a nice hotel for all you pay for the rig. True but a hotel may have:

1. Kids running up and down halls.
2. Waiting on people in breakfast line.
3. Going through checking in and checking out process.
4. Having to deal with loud people.

What I like about being the co pilot is:

1. Also having a stake in this.
2. I'm the primary (only) decorator.
( no funky hotel decor to look at)
3. Setting up our rig , our way.
4. Making it romantic.
5. Breakfast and snacks anytime. Last time we pulled over for lunch, we parked in an old farm town historic district and opened our shade and had nice
Ambiance for lunch. Very relaxing.( sometimes like our daughter says, it's nice to 'avoid people ) so we retreat to the rig for lunch. Our own nice kitchen, clean, nice and relaxing and no waiting on food. Plus we eat healthier, that way.

He takes care of the mechanics and I as the co-pilot make sure the ambiance is good. I just love the convenience of having our own "rolling cabin."

Heck, I even found 'chandelier Rome Paris stick on wall decor" to add a special touch inside. I love my co pilot job. I think I'd cry if we had to give it all up at this point. Ours is a Gateway and we say a 'Gateway to Heaven,' when we road trip to see our states beauty !!!!

Yeah, this co-pilots addicted thus far ! Who knew camping could be this much fun.

The fur baby is not much help unless he has to stop

Hi All, oh this brings back so many wonderful memories when my husband and I traveled. I did the inside he outside then when I am solo I had to learn to do it all... Not near as bad as I thought. I agree with twogipseys both should know how to drive in case of emergency. It was a nice summer day we stopped by the river and he went to check out the fish. He fell on some large boulders luckly he was ok but I had to learn to drive truck , 5th and tow car on bad roads and I did it but that is NOT the way to learn. Oh I just love this place.
ryegal, tip your glass

We both share inside and outside work. When he is driving ( he is a bad passenger), I am his extra set of eyes. I look for mergers, cars off on the shoulder, etc. I never read or take my attention off the road and he thinks my contribution is pretty important. We are a team.

All I expect from my co-pilot is to alert me when she needs to use the bathroom. I do the rest.
