The Dream

We travel full-time in Beauty, our 2001 30′ Airstream Excella. 1042 days ago we began our ongoing mission to pursue an open-ended location independent retirement plan.

Beauty and the Beast – Mt. Shasta, California

The Prep

It took two years to divest all that did not serve this new life – such as selling our homes and over forty years of accumulated possessions – so we could be LIBerated to enjoy our senior years without the burden of property, maintenance, and debt.

The Canyon RV Resort – Radium Hot Springs, Canada

We love wilderness camping, urban camping, luxury camping, Harvest Hosts, and even appreciate a good overnighter at Cracker Barrel or Walmart.

Dog-friendly dining and activities are a priority.

True, we’re shamelessly in love with travel and the simple life, but we’re honest to a fault.
