Retired and Livin the Dream

Retired two years ago. Been RVing for 20 years. Started out with a couple pop-ups and ended up with a 40' Diesel Pusher. Not full time but lots of long trips. Headed for Alaska this summer. Really like this forum.

And it only gets better when you get rid of the house and most of the things that have become anchors. People often mention that I am living the American Dream when I tell them that I am retired and Full-time. And they're right!

Howdy Joe and Kippy! Welcome to the forum. We're not full timers, either...and have no plans to be. Just love taking trips and seeing the country.

We spent 3 months in Alaska a few years ago. Other than a few new rock chips and a cracked windshield ( a Alaska badge of honor) we had a GREAT time! Enjoy your trip, as the say it is " a trip of a lifetime"!
