As unbelievable as it seems, we have already passed the 6-month anniversary of our life as full-time RVers.   I have put together an album of some of my favorite pictures along the way.  The choices were very personal and include some spectacular scenery and wildlife, very important people, famous and not-so-famous places, and even a few artistic expressions.   All represent moments in time which were special to me.  I hope you enjoy them.

We now begin the second half of our first year as professional campers.  The call of the adventure is stronger than ever, since we’ve had a taste of what the life can offer.  As we follow our dream into the next phase,  we will continue to turn when the road does.

I wish you enough!
