We got out of the heat for the summer and spent 2 mos in northern Az in our new travel trailer. We usually travel from north (Alaska) to south ( Arizona) every year for 3-6 weeks fall and spring. This year as with others health problems plagued us, we are hoping to get back in the swing next winter season.

A few short trips in the summer. We have spent up to 7 months ( fall winter and spring ) then home to flowers, friends and GK’s coming to stay for 6-9 weeks. It’s fun to be home in the summer. But we travel from WA state to the SE coast family, holidays, and Hilton Head .

From May to September we live in our 35 foot Damon (Thor) returning to our house, usually Tuesday to Wednesday. Then at the end of the season we travel for about a month.

Retired this year, and I am taking time to prepare to travel a lot more pulling a 30 foot trailer. Hopefully I will be on the road this fall and winter.

We are staying in our travel trailer while my fiancé takes contracts as a traveling OR tech. He’ll use the extra money to pay off his student loans. I work from home so I am fortunate to be able to travel with him. I’m surprised at how many other contract medical professionals also travel by RV.
