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
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.
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
