Looking for what it's REALLY like
on the road in an RV? Then you have come to the right place! We have newsletters as they happened; the trials AND the triumphs
are included, as they happened to us. It was all an adventure to us. Our approach required our wacky
sense of humor to help get over the rough spots in our road (you'll see!) On the other pages of this site we also have
a page or two of links to some of our favorite online resources for research and info on the lifestyle. We even have some
photos in here, but really aren't pictures booooring? LOL!
Remember we originally bought the rig to
find a good 40-50 foot sailboat, a ketch or yawl, to then liveaboard fulltime. The RV was only supposed to be for a
few months, a year at most. One day we both looked at each other, and found each was afraid to tell the other we wanted
to continue RVing, in lieu of our original dream. No regrets!
These are our "Tales from the Road";
the trip journals of how I went from a straight laced military type, back to my 60's roots, and became a Full time RVr. An RVr is really an "Influential Street Person", as "The Woodcarver" once told me.
The only difference between the average RVr, and us is that we are about 20 years younger, and were in the first wave of "Boomers"
on the road.
The newsletters cover from 1997 to
current and contain our adventures as we lived them. From getting rid of most of our stuff, getting the Diesel dually, the
5th wheel, and what we found on the road, both good and bad. As I said, the newsletters started as a missive to our "friends"
group, but have grown way beyond that. The real travel newsletters start with Newsletter 14, so if you want to skip the "family
fare" emails, as we got the truck and rig in newsletters 1-13, feel free.
