~ Elaine & Joe ~

Hello, and welcome!  We are a baby-boomer couple, along with our English Setter, Caroline, making a major lifestyle transition in order to live our life more deliberately and  to focus on what we enjoy most, being outdoors.  First and foremost, we want to share, inspire and collaborate with family, friends and like-minded fellow travellers all that we can about our journey and this lifestyle.  To facilitate our travel, we are preparing ourselves to live on the road full-time in a RV/motorhome.  The length of time that we do this is not written in stone, rather it is boundless in nature.  It is indeterminable because our bucket list is overflowing with not only the majestic national and provincial parks, but the hidden gems that have a smaller footprint, but no less extraordinary.  We are excited to get out in nature and meet people all over North America, understand its diversity and culture and increase our appreciation for all landscapes.  Our lifestyle will take us toward interesting people, places and most of all afford us the freedom to go where we want, when we want.    We hope you follow our journey!   Happy Trails!!!
