We’ve been married for 43 years and in April 2016 we became full-time RV travelers. Our trailer, Beauty, is a 2001 30′ Airstream Excella. The Beast, our 2014 Ram 2500 diesel with a Cummins engine is our TV (towing vehicle). Pico de Gallo, our itinerant chihuahua is 10 years-old.
We’re retired, healthy, not enrolled in Medicare or receiving Social Security benefits. Traveling during the best years of our lives, before ill-health sets in, is our goal.
We’re Californians, but no longer property owners. We have nothing in storage and no home base. Two years of preparation preceded this adventure – selling our homes and releasing over forty years of accumulated possessions to others. Traveling light is the goal, unburdened and liberated (LIB – Living in Beauty).
We’re simply wanderers with no firm itinerary. Our style is 4-3-2 : four-hour driving limit, stop by 3 pm and reside for 2-weeks – but we’ll drive for days to attend a beer festival, hot springs or natural wonder. Our motto is, “No Fake Deadlines” and we’re sticking to it. “No reservations” is another rule we rarely break.
