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!

    1. Hi Thomas…thank you SO much for your very kind comments. It is truly a lifestyle we both love and very much hope to help others looking to start this journey too. I’m thrilled that you like the home page too. I’m actually quite pleased with that and just need to connect the links with the buttons.

      I appreciate your very kind works.

  2. Dear Sue,

    Your website is always full of fresh and valuable information and I love to visit your website to get new insights and via your website only I first came across the RV and this life style which is awesome. Actually it was a big shock in the beginning and I am really happy you are enjoying and living your dream.

    Your Friend,
    Paul

    1. Hi Paul, yes, we are really enjoying this lifestyle. Right now we’re looking into something called work-camping where we travel to different RV parks and work for a short period of time. Some of these jobs come with space rent included and some have space rent plus a small salary. We’ll be doing this by February of 2019.

      Thank you for stopping by, Paul

  3. Hi Sue,
    I have seen travelogue presentations that gave the facts but not the sense of what it really feels like to make a living on the road. You post makes us feel that we are there with you. You also make an excellent point about what it takes to share a life on the road. This is the case where “opposite attract” would not be a good idea. Similar souls sharing the same space seems a more likely success. It’s obvious that you and mark are true soul mates with a calling for the outdoors. I wish you continued happiness.
