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 have 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 like 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, our plans diverged. Annie, the six cats, and Jake the Big Dog found a place to stay put in the 1996 38 foot Fleetwood Bounder, minus Roxi. Although Annie is funny and smart and should most definitely write a blog, I'll be writing this one.
Roxi's next chapter begins now, in a 2004 Toyota Prius, "Spud."
