It was about six years ago that Judy and I first began to think seriously about totally changing our way of life. In our first blog entry I shared our experience of meeting a host couple at
Judy and I only know Juanita and Gordon through their blog. I ran across a link to their travel journal on one of the RV Forums I was reading in Dec. of 2007. I checked it out and we have been dedicated followers since. They began their life on the road in March of 2006. Today just happens to be their 6th anniversary on the road as fulltimers. Juanita and Gordon’s “little house on wheels” at the time was a Sunny Brook fifth wheel. Through their journal, we have traveled from the Rio Grand Valley of Texas to Port Orford,
and many points in between. I have gained much insight, knowledge, and entertainment through Juanita and Gordon’s journal. Thanks for your inspiration. Oregon

We found out about Howard and Linda’s web site while attending the Atlanta Winter RV Show in 2008. Judy and I were trying to determine what type of RV would best meet our RVing needs. During the course of the show, we had a conversation with a couple about our plans and they asked us if we were familiar with Linda and Howard’s site. I told them no. The couple said “you must check it out”, so we did. That was the most valuable information we gained that day at the show! RV-Dreams is a clearing house for anything RV related. You can read about Howard and Linda’s journey and how it came to be on the site as well as follow their travel journal. Think of the phrase, “the total package”. Judy and I met them in Dec at Gen. Coffee State Park in Douglas, GA. That was our first outing with our “Cardinal”. You will not meet a more delightful couple. You can read about the outing in their journal entry by clicking “here” and " here". Linda and Howard, thanks for all you do for the entire RV community.

We met with Joe and Nancy during one of their stop-overs near our home. I sent them an email and asked if we could stop by for a short visit. They were so helpful, answering our many questions about full-time RVing. Joe and Nancy have stopped by since and we get together for a little visit. They travel now from May – Oct. and spend the rest of the year in New Port Richie, FL. Judy and I keep up with them through their blog.
and Joe, thanks for sharing your experiences with us. Nancy
I met Peter this past Nov. after he contacted me via email. He is a reader of the Workamper forums and saw a post that included my home town in the signature. He lives nearby so we set up a coffee meeting. We now try to meet at least weekly. Peter has shared his many workamping experiences with me. He will be reporting along with his wife in a couple of weeks to a “Dude Ranch” in NC. They will be there until Oct. or so. Thanks for the camaraderie and advice.
