Hitting the Road...for real!
We head out tomorrow for our first real road trip. We are headed to Livingston TX to do all of the logistical chores of setting up residency (registering vehicles, drivers license, etc). We are planning to split it into about 4 days, possibly staying an extra day in OK City, which is about half way. We are excited to get going, but also a bit anxious. I think it will feel good to get a couple of days on the road behind us so that we know it's no big deal. Wish us luck! I'll check back in in a few days!!
We are Connie and Tracy, a.k.a "G-Ma C" and "G-Ma T" to Scooter and Ruby. We are in our mid-40's and have been living the traditional American dream of home ownership, lots of toys and careers to pay for it all. But as this way of life has provided less and less satisfaction over the years, we decided that the time had come to make feeding our souls a priority. Pursuing our long-time dream of living a nomadic lifestyle, in March 2010, we sold our house and most of our personal belongings, resigned from our careers and hit the road in our RV, along with our 80-pound dog, Hunter, and 20-pound cat, Jasper. Although we don't expect to become monetarily wealthy, we have no doubt we will be much richer than we could ever imagine. We have no idea what lies ahead but please follow us on our journey to unknown adventures!
