A little history....

Finally, we will set off for life on the road. We've dreamed of this soooo long, and tomorrow it becomes a reality. Actually, we became full timers in April, 2009, when we moved out of our stix 'n' bricks house and took up living in a fiver (5th wheel trailer)...

This is our first rig. Pretty and very livable, but by June of 2010 we knew a motorhome would suit our needs better because we, Richard and I and our pets, Baby Snooks and Jasper, could enjoy the living quarters going down the road.

We bought a 40 foot long 1995 Safari Ivory Edition with a 300 Cummins and Allison automatic transmission. It has no slides, and we didn't want any. We wanted it to be fully livable with no adjustments for our stop and go life on the road.

We don't have much of a nest egg for emergencies, and everything we own is loaded in the motorhome and The Little Green Toad, as we have named our bright green Ford Fiesta, but we are trusting our Father to provide and we can always work along the way if our retirement income falls short.
