We’ve been married for 42 years and since April 2016 we have been living full-time in Beauty (our 2001 30′ Airstream Excella) as we travel around the United States and Canada with our chihuahua, Pico de Gallo. We’re Californians, in good health and retired from our former careers, and we’re not yet receiving Medicare benefits or social security. We don’t play golf or tennis, and puttering around the house and garden lost it’s charms on us ages ago.
Currently, we own no property and have nothing in storage. The accumulation of 40 years took two years to liquidate. Now, we are free, liberated (LIB – Living in Beauty), to occupy ourselves full-time with our passion for travel. We’re simply wanderers with no firm itinerary. Our style is 4-3-2 (four-hour driving limit, stop by 3 pm and stay for 2-weeks) but we’re known to break from that guideline when we catch wind of a good beer fest or hot springs because we hold to our motto, “No Fake Deadlines.”
Here is a 2 minute documentary about living full-time in our Airstream.
