When John and I (Trish) were married (1974), I had a degree in Art Education. A few years later John got his degree in Industrial Arts Education. Little did we know that for about 25 years of our marriage we would work in far different fields – I at the US Bankruptcy Court and John as a Paramedic.
Our 2 sons were born those early years of marriage and have both been making their own ways in the world. Both own their own homes and work hard caring for their families. As of 2014 we have 2 dear grandchildren.
In 2012 we both retired and began embarking on our long held dream to explore North America while living full time in our 2003 Safari Zanzibar. Our goal is to experience this country’s history, geography, it’s story at ground level. We plan to visit the National Parks, golf courses and any special places that cross our path. Visiting our friends and relatives where they live is another dream of ours. We hope to unleash from our structured lives to live what life brings us, while we are physically able to do so. We see this as our chance to experience life together in a new way as well as to share what the heck full timing is like. This Journal is our record of these experiences.
Update: We’ve upgraded to a Winnebago Journey 36M. I’ve also decided to share my watercolor paintings (created before our trip) and websites of others that have inspired me:
UPDATE: We sold our 36′ Winnebago Journey on May 14th, 2017. We are continuing our travels, just by different methods. Now my postings will be intermittent, so I’d recommend that you click to “Follow” my site so that when I do post you’ll get a message letting you know.
