ElizaBeth and I will live and travel full time in our 30-foot Itasca Sunstar RV, at least until we have visited all national parks, every state fair, or when we get ready to do something else – whichever comes first.
I like to write and want to try a novel set in higher education that will have to be fiction since nobody would believe what really goes on. After working in facilities management since I was 16, I have done every job there is from cleaning to high voltage electrical switching and am pretty handy, and I may submit some articles on RV repairs and maintenance. We have been able to complete a few consulting jobs for other institutions and would like to get more customers. Advancing my limited knowledge in fly fishing is on the agenda, but mostly we just want to take it easy.
We have been relaxing in the RV over long weekends and took a sort of shakedown cruise over the Winter Break, spending Christmas at Alpine, TX. We fried a turkey, read books, and to paraphrase Hollywood Henderson, mostly didn’t do anything and didn’t start that until after lunch.
I have had this website URL for years, and this past week relocated the site to a different host and WordPress. I would love to have you join us as we start our new adventure.
