In the beginning...

Stix n Brix; Clayton NC

We are starting this blog a little early to keep up with our progress towards our goal of fulltime RVing. We know that there will be days and even weeks when it seems so far away. We also know that it is closer now than it was when we decided this would be the ideal lifestyle for us.

I will be doing most of the posts but Gin will speak up occasionally. She is definitely the tech support in all we do. I am Syl and plan to retire in the Fall of 2011. Many people are strong enough to quit their stressful jobs and travel fulltime in their RV. We aren't brave enough to do that on a wing and a prayer. I will be 50 upon retirement so we figure that should give us a couple of good decades.

Gin has a different life story than many people. She was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) while in her mid 20's and has her ups and downs with that disease. She has been on disability for 20 years due to MS. We've been together our entire adult life.

Hi Gin and Syl! I followed your blog link from the RV-dreams site. I'm Gypsy Turtle 2 there and want to thank you for volunteering to help us clean up at the rally. It's also a small world. I see you are in Clayton. We are in Durham :) There appears to be a few North Carolinians on that site. I look forward to following your blog. We are on the same schedule. House is going up for sale soon and hope to hit the road in the fall.

Looking forward to reading your blog. My partner and I will be heading out as fulltimers in December of this year. We are in our early 50's and are stoked about hitting the road. Good luck to you and be safe
