No house. No property.

No storage, debt or plan.

Just living in Beauty …

for as long as we can.

The Dream

We travel full-time in Beauty, our 2001 30′ Airstream Excella. 823 days ago we began our ongoing mission to pursue an open-ended location independent retirement plan.

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 Life

We share travel tips, safety tips, facts and information, and how to prepare great food in a small galley.

We drive the backroads, shun fast-food, convenience stores and reservations.

The Canyon RV Resort – Radium Hot Springs, British Columbia, Canada

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

We brake for craft breweries, gardens and farmer’s markets.

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.
