us2_x.jpg (42400 bytes)Danielle is from the Montreal, Quebec area where she lived all her life until Jack "uprooted" her and took her to PA, where we spent our "house-bound" years. And yes, she speaks French - it is her first language. She learned to speak English as a child, and has refined it over the years. She still has an accent, but it is not French, it is southeastern Pennsylvania!

Jack was born in Texas, but raised in Pennsylvania. That is where we lived before full timing. Jack worked for a major computer manufacturer his entire career, and Danielle worked for a national transportation company, in various areas (including safety, and loss prevention). Her career was what first pointed us towards "big" trucks as RV haulers.

When we were housebound we spent our free time with our horses (we have both ridden almost all our lives), windsurfing, and taking care of our pets. And of course, slaving over the Great American Dream - a house. Boy, were we ever slow to catch on to the fact that our houses were running (or is that ruining) our lives. But once we did, it did not take us long to "escape". In October of 2009 we celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary....where did the time go?

We started full timing as soon as we thought it was financially possible for us. We wish we would have started sooner - we love the lifestyle. We don't anticipate stopping until our health requires us to - which will be many years in the future, we hope.

We workamp in the summer. We typically decide on an area we would like to see in depth. We then find a job in that area - this gives us a "free" base to see the area from, and we enjoy the work. We have generally worked in commercial campgrounds, and have enjoyed the experience. We don't do it for the money, but it does minimize expenses.

Our hobbies revolve around outdoor activities. We are avid windsurfers in the spring and fall; we hike, bike ride and rollerblade wherever we are.

poppy_danielle_GC.jpg (38524 bytes)We had not planned to have any pets while full timing. It definitely restricts what you can do. But, in Sept. 2004 we "acquired" a 3 year old (we think) Australian Shepherd mix. She is about the best dog you could hope for as a full timer. Quiet, not too energetic (unlike most Australian Shepherds), and very willing to please. Like all our former pets she will be with us until she dies, so it is a big commitment. She only weighs 45 pounds, so it is easy to "boost" her into the truck. Actually, we are surprised we "lasted" as long as we did without a dog (over 6 years).
