Well, DH and I love road tripping so much that in 2007, we went on a long one in a new RV with our dog Jerry, after doctors told us he had just a few months to live. When Jerry continued to thrive after a year, we decided to keep moving and today, five years later, we're still on the road! We've put over 70,000 miles on our rig traveling to all parts of North America.
In fact, I'm writing this from our solar-powered RV while camped along the most remote stretch of the Rio Grande, near Terlingua, Texas (we have satellite Internet which keeps us online even when there's no cell service). The scenery is breathtaking and once again we are stunned at the beauty on this continent. We are constantly surprised at new finds like this.
I say: why not keep driving? The full-timing lifestyle isn't for everyone but if you have the traveling bug, why not find a way to take a year off and see if it suits you?
