Hello, my name is Kimberly. My daughter (7), dogs and I are about to embark on a journey of a lifetime---full timing in our new RV. I am a traumatic brain injury survivor, and also struggle with multiple sclerosis and Lyme disease.

Sarah and I lost our home (and entire family) in October of 2006. Life has not been kind in many ways, but has afforded us countless lessons; ones we intend to put to good use as we embark on a fresh, new start in life.

We are full-timing on a mission :-) ---campaigning for service dog/brain injury awareness, and heading to TN to start a new equine assisted activity program (The Equine Ability Program) to help other people with traumatic brain injury, PTSD, depression, cognitive dysfunction and more.

We plan to use every mile and every campsite we inhabit to teach people about what life is like with brain injury, pass out information/resources, and demonstrate service dog tasks with my dogs (the Canine and Abled dogs from Canine and Abled, Inc.

We've ordered a Jayco Jay Feather 23K, and are anxiously awaiting its arrival. We're so excited to get on the road (end of June/beginning of July). Until then, I'm taking my crash course in RV101, and looking forward to the miles up ahead!

You are very wise my dear, Kimberly

I am so glad you are going to help others become aware of your convictions. That is very admirable, to say the least. I have my own page on this site, just look for me saying "I love this site" lol, and I really do. I am still in the research stage, yet my ultimate goal is to write a book about showing others how to find "the path meant for them" My stand is that I want others to be aware that first they have to clean out their own dark corners that haunt them and then to be in a situation where they can help others who want to be helped. Many people need answers. I am still on my journey, gaining as much wisdom as I can so I can help others. That is one thing I like about this site, it does help others who are planning on the full-timer path. The most important thing to me, is to be at my computer or campfire with words of encouragement. Good luck with your quest!!!
