In 2009 we visited Arizona and knew we had to come back. We researched ways we could recreate our life out West, with jobs and house.
At the same time we thought of RVing our way out, we began realizing we didn't want a western version of our American dream. We wanted something more: less.
Our plans morphed several times on the way, and in April, 2011, we untethered from our home and friends. We knew zero about what we were doing, but now we know three times that much. We liked to boondock (camp without hookups) on National Forest Service Land and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land.
On April 30, 2013, after 14 years together and two years on the road, plans morphed again. Annie, the six cats, and Jake the Big Dog continued on without Roxi. Although Annie is funny and smart and should most definitely write a blog (here it is!), Roxi will be writing this one.
Roxi's next chapter begins now, in a 2004 Toyota Prius, "Spud."
