Hi! I'm Terrie and I've had this crazy dream for several years. I've started and stopped several times, but now, it looks like we're prepping to make the dream come true!
As most major life decisions happen, I had a traumatic life event about 4 years ago that shook the foundation of my life. As I was going out of town for a solo weekend in Charleston, SC, I passed a fifth wheel RV on the road and it was like my heart jumped out of my chest and my inside voice was screaming....GO! Do THAT! It was the first glimmer of light my heart had seen in a LONG time. And so the dream began....
In 2014, I bought a Rockwood Ultralight 26' travel trailer to give it a try. I had a remote job, so I could work from anywhere as long as I had WiFi. So, for about 4 months, I hopped around Florida making sure I could setup, breakdown, and make time to go do things. My JOB was very demanding at the time so that meant long days in the RV in front of a computer screen. I made sure Saturdays and Sundays were set aside to get out and explore. I loved it!
I began researching, thinking, and planning with any spare moment I had. I bookmarked places I wanted to see and experiences I wanted to have. This went on for a year or so, and then I made the move.
I left Smithfield, NC and couch surfed for about 8 months to save money to buy my dream RV and planned to be on the road January, 2017. Needless to say, life happened. I stuffed the dream away and bought a house in Florida in October of 2017.
Along the way, I met someone who loves to travel as well. So, if all goes well, January 1st, 2019, will be the day we hit the road. We joke about how different we are and when I see a 6 she sees a 9. But it does expand both of our horizons and I think we'll find different ways to experience the same things. Sounds like fun, huh?
There's more to share about my traveling family, but that's what blog posts are for! So, return to the site often and I'll keep you updated. But most importantly...Come SEE with US!
Meet the Travel Family
Below you will find so info on our travel family. Return often to read posts from the four legged travel members.
The One With The Dream
Some of my friends call me "a geek with a personality". I love gadgets and playing with new tech.
I've worked remotely for about 15 years now. Sometimes I miss the office life, but I get a lot more completed than if I had to commute and work in an office environment. And I can even get a load of laundry done while on a 3 hour conference call.
I want to travel the US and see and do all I can while I can. I love meeting new people and experiencing the world we live in. Can't wait to meet you along the way!
Crazy Rescue Dog
I was rescued by Terrie from an animal shelter and was a little crazy when she first met me. I jumped to the top of the fence with excitement when we first met. Terrie even called me a kangaroo! She adopted me and we began our journey together. When we got home, I settled in but was still a bit crazy. Terrie has had to replace two bedspreads because I chewed them up through my crate bars (I don't like CRATES!). Now, after some training, I have better manners. I'm loving swimming in the pool, eating treats, and sleeping on the bed. We're doing this thing called camping and I LOVE camping! So many new smells and places to PEE!
Crazy Blue Heeler
Hi! My name is Kitt Kat! But no, I'm not a candy bar. I'm a cross between a red and blue heeler and I am a great f-r-i-s-b-e-e dog! Please don't tell Mom I know how to spell it. I have a TON of energy and am sometimes too smart for my own good. Check back often for my shenanigans. Maybe you can help me stay out of trouble!
