Although roadtripping can be enjoyed by individuals of any age, there are a number of reasons that hitting the road during your 20s can be seen as the ultimate time to set out for adventure. This is not to say that you can never roadtrip again in your later years, but taking advantage of your 20s to hit the road comes with a variety of advantages that combine to make for a truly memorable experience. So if you’re currently in your 20s, there is truly no better time to load up a campervan hire and head for the open road.

There are many reasons that make your 20s the prime time for roadtripping, but the five top reasons are listed below.

Free Time

During your early 20s you may still be in school, making semester breaks the perfect time for a carefree roadtrip adventure. You won’t have to worry about classes since you are between semesters, and as long as you have enough cash to last for your trip you will be in good shape. Try to work a part time job during the time you’re at school so you can put some cash aside for your trips. You can then enjoy roadtrips with your friends with a  carefree mentality that you may not enjoy later on in life when you have more responsibilities.

Better Stamina

It is a simple fact that younger individuals tend to be much stronger physically than those in their 30s and 40s. Of course you can stay healthy and fit later on, but in your 20s you simply have more stamina than you will later on. Since roadtripping often includes some sleepless nights, long driving hours, and a multitude of outdoor activities, you will be much more capable of handling them in your 20s.

Less Responsibility

Let’s face it, you just have much less responsibility in your 20s than you will later on. Perhaps you are not married, have no children, and are free of adult matters like mortgages and full time jobs. That makes your 20s the perfect time to take advantage of the open road. You will truly be able to enjoy your experiences and adventures with less baggage from the adult world dragging you down.

Ability To face Hardships

By the time you get into your 30s you will be used to things like comfortable beds, immaculate bathrooms, and fashionable furniture. This will make it extra hard to find yourself sleeping in a campervan, a tent, or in other less-than-ideal circumstances. This is not to say that you can’t continue to sleep rough on road trips throughout your lifetime, but it will certainly be a little easier on you when you are younger. So make sure to get the rough stuff out of the way in your 20s.

Stockpile Memories

These very well may be the best times of your life, so make sure to take advantage and build up a nice bank of memories you can always look back on. In the future you may not be able to travel as much, so get those road miles under your belt while you still can.

Anyone in their 20s is highly recommended to get out there on the open road and enjoy themselves. Take advantage of your free time, your minimal responsibilities, and your peak stamina and hit the road this spring.
