Life on the Open Road (April 2006 - May 2008)

The continuing saga of a single fulltime RVer who travels the western US. This is part one of my journey, from April 2006, when the blog started, to May 2008, when the blog continues at

I have been a full-time RVer for 18 years, primarily "boondocking," camping free without hookups, in the Western US. I am connected electronically with the world via satellite TV, phone and internet. My batteries are charged solely by solar panels. I welcome your comments and emails.

Happily Ever After

This German couple, Georg and Rhea, lead a fairy tale life, wandering the world in this specially engineered RV, a wonder of electronics and practical design.

Their story is even more fascinating than their rig. Early in their married life, they decided that their goal would be financial independence, then ceaseless travel in moderate climates.

They established a business of preparing scientifuc documents, working 6 days a week for 13 years, and saving every penny till at last they were free.

Now for the past 20 years, they have enjoyed themselves on several continents. Both are superbly healthy, likable, intelligent people, proving that the good life can be earned and lived.

We crossed paths with them at the Slabs. What a joy to interact with this couple who are doing it just right!

Cool looking rig. What's the broom in the door for? Oh, that's right, they're German. I think Germans must be the cleanest people in the world.
