Who am I?

After years of wondering what I am supposed to do with my life, I have finally realized I was meant to travel.  Follow me on my journey and wander where I am.

travel with me

I am a business owner and entrepreneur who has dabbled in all sorts of industries and positions with no real sense of true gratitude.  At the age of 28 I realized I needed a change in my life before I was stuck.  That is where my journey started.  At this point in my life I had a great career, amazing friends and a wonderful family.  Even with all of that being said, I still had this feeling that something was missing.  What was my “Why”?  What was I supposed to do?  What was I meant do do?  Where did I belong?  Up until recently I still did not have those answers.  I had found ways to curb the feeling and to live the “American Dream”.

May of 2011 I decided I was going to quit my job, sell everything I own and pack up my Isuzu Rodeo and start driving.  Yes, that seems a little dramatic but I knew that was my chance to get out of my comfort zone and figure out what I was missing.  I spent a little over a month on the road and had little in savings to rely on.  I finally landed in Phoenix, which I had been to several times, and decided this is where I was going to stay and start a new life.

Almost 6 years later I still have not been able to satisfy that feeling that something is missing.  I own my own business, home, great friends, strong relationships, amazing family, etc.  Some would say I am living the “American Dream” but yet something is still missing.  With much soul searching and reflecting I realized the times that I am truly the happiest is when I am traveling, hiking, enjoying the outdoors and encountering the unknown.  Could it be that I just realized my calling?  Do I have to wait until retirement to achieve my goal of buying an RV and traveling the world?

After thinking long and hard about it, I realized I don’t have to be retired to make this happen.  I started doing research and found out there are many people out there that are not retired that live the outdoor, traveling, RV life.  That is my calling.  Because of this realization I am going to do what makes me happy and start my new life.  I have decided that unlike all my other travels over the years, what I am doing needs to be documented. It is my goal to help other people who have had the same struggle as me, people just getting started, people wanting to travel and need recommendations, or just people who like to live vicariously through other people.

Now that you know where this all started and where it’s going…….Let’s get personal

  • I love kitties and Pinot Grigio

  • I am a HUGE Wisconsin Badger & Green Bay Packer fan.
    (you guessed it, I’m from Wisconsin)
  • I have 2 kitties.  Koy (big white & fluffy) & Amos (big black puma snuggler)

  • I love the outdoors and hiking.  The harder and scarier the better.

  • My Grampa is my hero.
