How it all began...
The idea had been circling in my head for years. But the time was right and I could no longer fight the wanderlust that had built up. I bought a 1977 GMC NuWa motor home, threw a solar panel on top and started getting it ready for the open road. My main goal: to wander around North America, catching up with old friends, visiting new places and experiencing things I haven't before. This is my story...

Pahrump, NV - I had thought several times prior to being on the road that there is the potential of boredom setting in at some point. I'm here to report that I no longer think that will be an issue. I've been on the road for almost 3 months (living in the RV for nearly 6 months) and I am finding that my days are constantly filled with activities, chores, laughter, learning, playing and much more. I've experience countless beautiful sunsets, starry nights and blue sky days (throw in there a few snowy days as well).
I think the main thing that impresses me most with the people that I’ve met is their ability to give. All of them have given freely both personal belongings and personal knowledge. While some of this giving is part of the constant "downsizing" and "purging" that vehicular living necessitates, it is still remarkable. Equally impressive is the knowledge that is shared within this group of individuals. Just in the short time that I’ve been here (1 week) I’ve learned so much. From KateI've expanded my knitting knowledge to include hat making and increasing/decreasing stitches;from Cheri I've learned how to make wire jewelry; from Wayne I've learned some things about my RV engine and being a great host; Bob has endless van living information, including solar and employment; Steve showed us his stunt kite flying skills and solar knowledge; Charlene knows turtle repair (don’t ask).
