#1 The Beginning

And then there was TWO! We raise our kids(4), are approaching the ends of our careers, and decide we want to see the country. RVing seemed the ideal answer. We shopped, we dreamed, we shopped,we researched, we shopped, we talked to others, we shopped, we debated, we shopped, and we finally bought(whew). Through a series of fortunate events(or as Mary says"someone up stairs is watching over us") we found the perfect truck, a Ford F550. Then through Mary's determined internet search we found the ideal 5th wheel. The kids had moved out on their own, our house was sold and into 300 sq feet we moved. Interesting change, though not to difficult moving from a small house. Still a couple of years from retirement, we plan on refining our RV lifestyle to prepare for life on the road.

Two and-a-half years later we are almost ready. We have done some traveling around the country. Georgia for an RV rally,S Dakota for Mt Rushmore, Indiana for RV heaven and the Amish, and NC just to watch the leaves change. We are nothing if not dedicated "leaf-peepers". We are planning a 4 week trip to NY's Catskill Mountains and will park the rig for a year after that. The next year will be spent finalizing our retirement plans, preping our rig for fulltime on the road, and planning our travels which may be nothing more than "lets go that way".

We have a lot of friends who are curious about our lifestyle choice. You know... the what, when, where, who, how, and especially why. With this blog we hope they and anyone else who wishes can follow us and understand our answers to these questions. This is the start of a new blog and our new life. Please share and enjoy it with us.

Home is where we park it,
