It has now been 10 years ago that Paul and I sold our house, all our possessions, and took to the road in an RV. We managed to spend time in every state but Alaska, Hawaii, and North Dakota. We spent months in California and Colorado and visited most National Parks and virtually every Presidential Library. We followed the Oregon Trail, old Route 66, and Lewis and Clarke. One year we did a literary tour where we visited the hometowns of our favorite authors: Mark Twain’s Hannibal, MO, Robert Frost’s in Bennington, VT, Nathaniel Hawthorn, Henry David Thoreau, Louisa May Alcott and Ralph Waldo Emerson in New England.
We stayed in Maryland for Christmas in 2002 and managed to encounter a snowstorm!
We had many adventures including getting caught in a mine shaft cave-in in Cripple Creek, Colorado. One time I inched my way along a narrow winding mountain road during a blinding snowstorm on our way through Arizona. Another time, the wheels of our RV became embedded in soft sand in the desert with nobody around for miles and miles. We had no debts and no property or possessions to maintain. It was a dream come true. We went through two homes on wheels, a Carri-Lite and a Hitchhiker II. They were both 35 feet long and had slide-out rooms. Once the slide-outs were open, we enjoyed as much space as a small apartment!
Here we are, moving from the old RV to the new RV
