Some ten years ago, I retired from the practice of law, closed an art gallery and framing shop, and began a stint as our family's domestic engineer. Great work, if you can get it. I enjoy reading, music, politics, cooking, photography, cycling, backpacking, hiking, exercise (no, really), great conversation, and taking care of our two sons (at least I did until they left for college a few years back). It's been said rarely do I meet a stranger. If I'm up to it, and you are too, I can appreciate an opportunity to exchange ideas and/or get to know who you are. I do, generally speaking, like meeting new people.
I see RV travel like Tim Cahill of Harvest Hostdoes, as an extension of my life-time of backpacking adventures. RVing is, I would imagine, definitely more like backpacking at the Ritz. My hope as we begin our nomadic journey is that the actual backpacking trips will not cease, I'll just be launching them from various trailheads with my home on wheels at my back. I've been thinking about the possibilities for full time RV travel for a while now and owe a debt of gratitude to many who are already out there enjoying the travels and travails of living the nomadic lifestyle in an RV full-time. I have learned and lived vicariously over the past year and a half through your experiences. There's a wealth of knowledge about the full-time RV lifestyle out there and, my advice, if you're pondering taking the plunge yourself, make sure to spend some real time doing your own due diligence before heading out (our Resources page may provide a good beginning). In the coming months, I hope to meet (and maybe share a glass of wine or a beer or dinner) some who have indirectly assisted and entertained me with their knowledge and experiences.
Melanie and I are looking forward to adding our knowledge and experience here in these pages as we travel.
