Revving Up for Retirement


My wife and I have been RVing for a year, and love it. We will spend much more time in our Winnebago after we retire in about 2 years.

I am looking forward to gleaning lots of wisdom from my new friends at iRV2. My first question is, where can I get that map avatar that shows the states we have visited?

Welcome! We are Ron and Marybeth from Nevada. We are currently looking at going full time this summer. Our house will be on the market shortly and once it sells we plan on purchasing an Itasca 42GD. There is so much to learn but that is half the fun the this lifestyle change! Good luck with your travels, and you never know, we may be neighbors at a campground somewhere down the road!

Hope to retire next year.

After the two brutal winters up here in NE. Ohio it might call for a winter trip to south Texas (Mission / McAllen). I see why people head south for the winter.

Good for you, I plan on doing the same thing in a couple of years. I don't want to wish my life away but I can not wait until the day comes when I can just say adios to the work life. It just is not what it used to be for me.

One suggestion I would make is to take it s.l.o.w. Don't try to fill in all those states in a hurry.

We full-timed for 16 years and traveled constantly. We still haven't seen all there is out there. Each state has it's own secret places and you can find beauty in every one.

Stay off the interstates and travel the secondary roads. Yes, it's slower but you see so much more. Don't limit yourself to full hookup RV parks. Branch out and do some dry camping in our lovely national forests, state parks and national parks. RVs are self-contained for a reason. Staying IN those places gives you a better feel of the place you're visiting.

Enjoy your retirement!
