“It doesn’t matter where you are; you are nowhere compared to where you can go.” – Bob Proctor
This post is a little different. We usually write about a place or event. This one is about us and change…
It seems like the only constant in life is change. So, here we go again, changing. We’ve had jobs and careers. We’ve retired and become consultants. We’ve been – and still are – volunteers. We’ve owned a photography business. Now we’re professional travelers, full-time RVrs crisscrossing North America.
We’ve spent so much time on the road that we decided to upgrade from a 25 foot lightweight travel trailer to a motorhome. We searched and searched and last summer found a 2006
Monaco Diplomat 40PDQ. We’ve nick-named it The Dip.
Last December, while volunteering at Big Bend National Park, we realized that owning a home didn’t make much sense. After all, it was costing us $20,000 a year just to keep the house and The Dip has all the conveniences of home (except for a dishwasher and hot tub). So we parked The Dip in South Texas and drove back to Gresham, OR, cleaned out the house, and put it on the market. Riley’s former boss, Rob Fussell is our realtor. We are hopeful that it sells soon.
We returned from the house clean-out and are on the road again touring the southwest. Our home is where we are parked. We will make an annual migration to the Pacific Northwest to visit Riley’s daughter and Karen’s brother’s family and to see our doctors and dentist. Otherwise, the road is our guide and there is always something new over the horizon.
You are welcome to join us (vicariously) on our journey across North America and beyond.
