Freedom to Travel with Our "Home"
by Robert ("Jess") Jessup
We started living full-time in a fifth-wheel RV two years before I retired from my second career to be sure that was going to work as our lifestyle.
My first career was as an USAF pilot and I think going all over the world put the travel bug in both my wife and me. Once I was fully retired (Dec 08), we hit the road and didn't look back.
We absolutely love the lifestyle! I've always loved Texas and we found a nice seniors-only park in the Rio Grande Valley where we winter. We also found a RV park/horse ranch in Colorado where we plan to spend at least part of each summer. In between--as our budget and family issues permit--we have traveled throughout the western US.
We plan to continue this lifestyle as long as our health allows. Then we'll buy a park model home in a seniors-only park, probably in our favorite one in Harlingen, Texas.
