Jon's Journeys (Added 11/29/10) This is my personal daily blog at Google. I have started it to cover the musings on purchasing an Escape 17B Travel Trailer & to document a trip to the Southwest & Canada in the Spring of 2011. The first post is Here. The 2011 trip is over (111 days & 18,700 miles). An index to daily updates & more photos than are available at the blogsite are at 2011 Trip, Page 1.
No long trips for 2013, atleast until October. I did take a 37 day trip to Nova Scotia.
Well, not quite right (No long trips in 2013) since October 10th was the starting point for a 305 day trip. I'm back home.
My last long adventure had a break in the middle. It started with a trip to Alaska along with friends traveling with a Scamp 16. After a couple of months break at home I'm heading back on the road & will add a link to the index when I leave Oswego.
I'm back on the road (as of October 14th) heading to the Southwest for winter. An index of the trip is here.

Two Plus Lu (Added 5/22/17) "Clay is an analytical, thoughtful, and conscientious California native (minus some years spent in Ohio) who loves getting his hands dirty, the mechanics of how things work, and going to places with no cell phone service. Cait is a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed Irish Bostonian who is annoyingly proud of her heritage and can eat a pint of raspberries in under 30 seconds. They met in grad school in California. Lucy is a shelter mutt who loves to pretend like she wants to say hi to you, only to dart away at the last second. Her weaknesses include Cheez-its and a game of throw the stick." They started in a truck camper, and now travel in an Escape 5th wheel.

Yukon Sights (Added 5/25/16) Sue's site had lots of information about traveling in the Yukon, Alaska, and the Canadian North.

Life in Trillium (Added 5/25/16) "To put it succinctly, we are a couple of friends, partners, tiny-home dwelling, Toyota truck driving, lovers and soulmates from Vancouver, BC bound for Ushuaia, Argentina and back again. We are hauling a vintage 1974 Trillium 1300 that we renovated ourselves for over 5 months prior to our departure. Our hauler is named the Green Bastard, a 1992 Toyota Pickup that has been rebuilt twice (hence the bastard moniker) and heavily upgraded inside and out to suit our needs."

We consider it profoundly applicable to life in general. The home page picture is our camp site at Canal Campground on Lake Barkley in Kentucky, the first park we stayed in when we began our full-time RV adventure, and we found it to be the perfect representation of “Turn when the road does”."

Charley and Kamala Sunshine Travels (Added 5/27/15) From their "About Page" - "For over a third of a century we've been wandering this marvelous world as a dyad. In our younger days we were both searchers; God, Meaning, Nirvana and all that kind of stuff. I've got tell you that the Search was fun and I wish I could tell you that we discovered El Dorado and fountains of Wisdom on the Search, but alas, somewhere along the line the striving for such things just fell by the wayside and we became wanderers instead of searchers (even more fun, really). I can tell you that both the Searching and the Wandering has brought into being one hell of a Love Affair. We still continue our wanderings through this amazing life on this small rock in space amongst all these amazing creatures in all kinds of ways." More here. When not on bikes, they travel in a Casita travel trailer.
Camp That Site (Added 5/27/15) I don't know whether to put this site in the blogs section, or the camping information page, so I'll do both! While there is a blog, the stated purpose of the site is to identify the best sites at the campgrounds they visit.
Live, Laugh RV (Added 5/27/15) From their "About Us" page: "Two grown kids, semi-retired, and more time to play, sounds like the perfect opportunity to hit the road in the 5th wheel.

We both embrace this new adventure of RVing and can’t wait to see what awaits around the next bend in this new chapter in life!" More about them here.
Young Fulltimers (Added 3/3/15) "We are a young couple nearly two years into our relationship, with half that time spent speculating the nuances of full-time life on the road. While we cannot yet reveal our identities to protect our existing careers, we look forward to personally interacting with members of the fulltiming community so we can shed light on this unique practice, which is no longer reserved just for retirees. Until we can reveal ourselves, we will tag each post with "HIM" or "HER" to let you know who is posting!"

We plan on leaving our home in Florida around the first of June 2014 and returning home near the end of October. This will be our second trip through the Midwest USA and we plan to spend more time in each state as our 2008 trip was fairly fast and there was a lot left unseen in these states.

In September of 2011 we took delivery of a 2012 27 foot Airstream Flying Cloud and have been living and working full-time in it ever since (1188 days). We’re travelling with our 14 year old Australian Shepherd mix dog Curtis. Curtie doesn’t care where we are, he’s happy as long as we’re together. I think in his mind, living in the trailer is like being in a big dog crate. Between the two trailers, the three of us have spent a total of 1843 days on the road!"

Take To The Highway (added 10/29/14) "My life has been a constant metamorphosis of sorts, always morphing into a new stage in a new place. I have had an incurable case of wanderlust since I was a kid growing up with parents who loved to road trip on a minute’s notice. I have been blessed to see some amazing places on this beautiful planet, so I decided I would like to have a place to share these experiences. I am living out my dream as a full time RVing 9 to 5′er, still hanging on to the “golden handcuffs” for a little longer. As a telecommuter, I figured “If I can do my job anywhere, why not do it everywhere?” So I sold my 3 bedroom home along with everything in it that was not nailed down, bought my Winnie View, and hit the road in March, 2013. The nomadic life suits me even more than I had hoped."
Crissy&Yeti (Added 10/29/14) "We are a couple that has decided that life is too short to be plugged in to the common view of society; go to school, get a job, buy a house, have kids and pay into the giant tax machine for a measly couple of weeks of vacation a year and then die. We are selling everything we own and are taking a year and a half to tour around North America in our travel trailer. Of course we will have to work eventually to pay for our adventures but with our jobs we plan on only working 4 months a year and the remaining 8 months will be spent travelling the world and keeping you entertained with our amazing blog!"

We left Newfoundland, Canada on November 3, 2010 never thinking in a million years that we'd go as far as we have nor for as long as we have. Prior to leaving I decided that "life's too short" and I'm "getting too old" so I sold the house, lock, stock and barrel - yes right down to the dishes ! I have not had one second's regret."
Winnie Views (added 10/29/14) "Since those early tent camping days, we've now transitioned through 3 RVs to our current Winnebago View mini motorhome. Technology has also advanced during these years so that cell phone and internet coverage are nearly everywhere, making it much easier to work on the road and still have an absolutely gorgeous view of nature to look at all day. It's the best of both worlds, and I never take that good fortune for granted! We make our home base in the Chicago area, but travel, work, and live in the View about 4-5 months a year, always looking for the next pretty landscape or waterway to experience. This blog is the diary of our adventures. Thanks for coming along for the ride!" More on their "About Us" page.
The Good Luck Duck (Added 10/29/14) "In 2009 we visited Arizona and knew we had to come back. We researched ways we could recreate our life out West, with jobs and house. At the same time we thought of RVing our way out, we began realizing we didn't want a western version of our American dream. We wanted something more: less. Our plans morphed several times on the way, and in April, 2011, we untethered from our home and friends. We knew zero about what we were doing, but now we know three times that much. We liked to boondock (camp without hookups) on National Forest Service Land and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land. On April 30, 2013, after 14 years together and two years on the road, plans morphed again. Annie, the six cats, and Jake the Big Dog found it more desirable to continue without Roxi. Although Annie is funny and smart and should most definitely write a blog, Roxi will be writing this one. Roxi's next chapter begins now, in a 2004 Toyota Prius, "Spud.""
OnTheRoadWithRiley (Added 10/29/14) "I’m Jeanne, from Austin, Texas. Riley is my dog, a Sheltie from Austin Sheltie Rescue. We were traveling for a few months in a 1992 22′ Lazy Daze motorhome.

The adventure started before ever hitting the open road. It began with renting an RV for a few days more than a year before I actually purchased Charlene, and it’s continued on ever since then in the process of shopping for an RV, learning about and making modifications to Charlene, and now in learning about blogging so I can share what I’ve learned with you. As my adventures unfold I’ll add them to the blog. More about Russ on his "About" page.

In fall 2010, we moved to North Idaho and tried living traditionally by buying a house, volunteering, and getting involved in the community. Despite all of our efforts, things just weren't working. We discussed ways to make the community and our current life more palatable but in the end, we bought a van. In November 2012, I quit my job and we made the van our home. We'd like to try the homelife thing again someday, we're just not sure where we want to put down our roots next." They are now traveling in a 13' Scamp.

Wandering Our Way (Added 12/30/12) From Denny & Sue's About Us: "I retired from a career in engineering, sales and general management a few years ago and with Sue retiring also we decided to try the life of seasonal nomads. Two of our three grown children live in the south and the winter in Michigan seems to get colder every year in spite of global warming so we are wandering through Florida with occasional stops to see the kids.

Plus I've got my new hobby with me wherever we go." They are traveling in a Lil' Snoozy fiberglass trailer.

Join us on our adventures, and I promise we will keep you "entertained" if nothing else! See you on the road, Ali & Charlie"
...Rolling in a RV - Wheelchair Traveling... (Added 1/4/12) " We've been fulltiming since 1993. Traveling in an RV became a long term goal of ours after we spent a year on the road in 1976 with our 4 year old daughter. We settled down and got to work saving money. Both of us had jobs and we also bought houses and apartment buildings which we remodeled , rented and eventually sold. It was a lot of work for a modest profit not at all like the infomercials on TV portray it! :D In the spring of 1993, our daughter was in college , we put our house up for sale and loaded the RV. On the road at last! We were young , I was 39 and Tony was 42 , so we didn't have any income such as pensions or social security checks. Our savings would not last until social security kicked in so our plan was to workcamp , volunteer and pick up jobs whenever we felt the need. I had my journeymen electrician license and Tony had a class C driver's license so we we're pretty confident that we wouldn't have a problem getting short term work.
Then in Oct. of 1993 I was in an accident which damaged my spinal cord and I am now in a wheelchair permanently. After about eight month of hospitals and rehab centers we were ready to get back to our lives. Our new handicapped motorhome was finished in Oct. 1994. We got back on the road!"

We call this our "Halfway House." This is a stopping off point on our journey to becoming fulltime rv'ers. Next step-sell the house and travel full time in our motor home.

I cannot think of a better way to see this great country that is called the United States of America. I feel there is so much history and sights to see...and we never take the time to explore and see them because of time constraints. What better way to see America than to be able to take as much time as you like to go from one place to another without having to worry about being at a certain spot by a certain date...and being able to do this in the comforts of "your own home".

Mountainborn Chronicles (Added 3/8/10) "Deep in the heart of the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas, Mountainborn lives the ancient hunting lifestyle of his forebearers, while blending modern technology into his mountainer’s daily activities.

Mountainborn’s Grandmother worried about her grandson while he was away in the military. She wrote a widely published poem about him titled MOUNTAINBORN, the name stuck. He longed for those misty mountains, while overseas, but the ancient lifestyle was the thing that he missed the most. There was just something about roaming those remote mountains with a gun and a dog that he constantly dreamed of. His descriptions of the Ouachita mountains and hunting to provide for his family constitute the MOUNTAINBORN CHRONICLES. Currently serving as Chief of Police, Larry Harmon lives with his wife Betty and retired drug dog Dillon at the foot of Cross Mountain, near Vandervoort, Arkansas.The MOUNTAINBORN CHRONICLES is dedicated to the memory of CLARA GANDY ANDERSEN.His Grandmother taught him to dream beyond the Mountains that surrounded him."

Too many hobbies, not enough time. And now it's gourds - burning, carving, painting. One of these times we'll settle down, probably in Yuma, Arizona where it is warm.

We go home to Georgia as often as we can to spend time with family and catch up with friends. I call myself a wannabe photographer, and try to take some photos every day. Some days I get something good, other days it is just practice. Other things I do to keep myself from going crazy are quilting, sewing, soapmaking, fishing, selling things on ebay, and cooking. My husband, Jim, and I love to try out the local foods wherever we may be. We like to shop the small produce stands for farm fresh fruits and veggies. Who knows, we may be in your town tomorrow!"
