We started tent camping in the 1980's and discovered we really enjoyed being out in nature. Rosie retired in 2000. In 2003, we bought our first RV, a 26' travel trailer. I retired from full time employment in 2006. We pulled that trailer from Idaho to Georgia in 2006 and from Idaho to Alaska in 2008. In 2009, we sold the travel trailer and found a used 1997 Alpenlite 34' fifth wheel at a small dealership in Salt Lake City. It was set up for boondocking with 4 batteries, a gas generator and 100 gallon fresh water tank. With 2 slides it seemed very spacious compared to the travel trailer.
After many years of summer RV trips around the western US, we came back from a six week adventure last September and made the decision that we wanted to do this full time. So we set a goal for getting on the road by June of 2012. We put our home up for sale in January 2012. We moved into our camper on April 19th and checked in for a month at a local campground. We closed on the sale of our home on May 1, 2012.

We have two furry companions, Sammy and Annie. They bring a lot of joy to our lives.We plan to limit our travels to the western USA going where ever the weather is warm at that time of year. We hope you will enjoy following us and reading about our travels.
