Life is short... go camping

Paul and I have spent many of the best months of our married life camping.


It's a complete release from the daily life. Yes, even retired, there is "stuff" that hangs around your head.r


We both agree that the best thing that we bought in our retirement planning was the Oliver. It has taken us, many times six to eight weeks at a time, to places we've either not been, or not explored the way we'd like. Most of the eastern US and Canada have seen the Ollie, and the strip states on the west side of the Mississipi.


Camping is the best (not the only) way to see North America. You are in control, can take your time, move as you please. Reservations not required, when you're willing to go to the road less traveled.




PS Our Oliver is not our only camping vehicle. We have rented around the world. Last year, in a minimal camping van, we met some of the nicest people in our rented camping van in Australia. A special greeting to Jenny and Kevin Harrison in Tasmania. We hope we'll see you again, soon.
