After many years of planning, we rented our home, got rid of a lot of our “stuff”, put the rest in storage and moved into our 39′ Class A diesel motorhome, Island Girl. The two of us are taking three years off to travel the U.S. and Canada with our canine companion, Angel. We hope to find the perfect community in which to establish our next home along the way.
We’ll spend this first winter in Florida and head up the eastern seaboard this coming spring. We hope to see the cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C., spend summer in the far north, hopefully making it to Nova Scotia, and head to New England for the fall. After that we’ll head back out West and spend the following winter in Southern California, then head north for the summer and hopefully make it to Alaska. We have no plans beyond that, nor for the last year of our journey, and of course, any or all of this can change, that’s the beauty of this walkabout.
