We sold our house in 98 and went full time for 3 years. We did the outer coast line all the way around the U.S. the first year. The second year we rambled thru all the middle states. The third year we went to Mexico for 27 days and then on up to Canada starting at B.C. and working out way to Winnepeg. We came back into the U.S. near Grand Forks, N.D. and took in some fine Sprint car racing. We did all 46 states, excluding Hawaii and Alaska. We had already flown to Hawaii earlier and just recently got back from a Alaska trip. So now we have doneum all.
While traveling ,we fell in love with Northern Florida and in 2001 built a new house in an area called the Hammock. It's filled with giant Live Oaks.
Now we are busy with the new house and all the new things to do here. We kept the RV for later travels because we didn't finish Eastern Canada, especially Fundi Bay.
We were supposed to sell the RV because our house money was in it when we came off the road, but the interest rates got so low we figured we would try to do both. So far so good. We almost went down with everyone else that was in the market but we are still making it.
We did a total of 50,000 miles on the rv, 29,000 on the bug, and 18,000 on the Harley. It was a great trip and we were young enough to enjoy all that was out there, including climbing Bell Rock in Sedona .
Here's a couple of pictures of our new hang out. It's a great area. It gets cool here for 2 months of the year but most of the time you can wear shorts. We wanted some cool weather because my wife has a lot of leather outfits for riding the Harley and if we went too far south she wouldn't get to use them.
