I'm a 69 year old retiree contemplating selling my condo, buying a small RV or travel trailer, and taking off across America solo. I'm a wildlife photographer, so the destinations that interest me are state and national parks, wildlife refuges, etc. I've never had a camper before (usually I just rent a local cabin when I travel), or done anything so ambitious and open ended. I would welcome any advice (and cautions) you may have for a complete novice road tripper.

Thank you!
