Introducing Mark and Sue
Our New Beginnings. We met online. We had both been through tumultuous relationships and discovered each other on an online dating site. Number one matches, according to the website. This truly was the beginning for us, for our lives together. Fourteen months later we were married in a little chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada and honeymooned in, of all places, Death Valley.
Driving long distances for a good hamburger or tasty treat became our “style” and train travel was our ultimate getaway. Being on the road was relaxing and quickly we came to the conclusion that our life together would have to ultimately involve travel. Lots and lots of travel.
It’s important for you to get to know us. If you’re here on this website, reading this blog post, then you might be a lot like us. We are adventurers with a love of all things travel.
Space is Not an Issue
Mark and I discovered early in our relationship that we consistently shared the same space. If Mark was in the kitchen, I was in the kitchen too. If I was in the living room, Mark was in there with me. We never felt the need to have our separate space. This was a precursor for living in an RV.
Our Year of Firsts
We bought our first RV, a 26′ Fleetwood Terra, Class A motorhome in 2005. Our intention was to take my husband’s dad to his home state of Louisiana for a visit with his last remaining family members. Sadly, this trip caused a flare of dementia for my father-in-law, that and a bad snow storm in Texas made us turn back for home. The memories associated with that trip caused us to sell this sweet RV.
In 2007, after both of Mark’s parents had passed, we bought our second RV, a 22′ PleasureWay Plateau Class B motorhome. We took some nice trips in this little beauty but it wasn’t our “dream” home.
When the time was right, we began a much-needed facelift on our house. New paint inside and out, new carpet and tile floors, updated cabinets and countertops in the kitchen. This was a lot of work. Did we have second thoughts about selling our home after all this work was done? Nope! Not in the least.
The next few weeks were just a blur. After meeting with our realtor and putting the house on the market, we had our first offer within three days. Only slightly lower than our ask, we accepted this cash offer and closed within seven days. The weekend was spent having the biggest and most thorough yard sale of our lives!
The Mystery of History
The rest is, as they say, history.
RV Road Masters will bring to you ways to travel light and travel right. You’ll learn the “one in, one out” rule of RV life. How to de-clutter, thin out and pare down all the stuff holding you down.
And best of all, we’ll show you how we fund our travels, so very little money comes out of our savings. And we’ll show you how you can do it too.
We hope you’ll stick with us on this joy-ride we call living the dream!
