For awhile now I’ve had a dream of traveling full time in an RV, seeking out some of the beauty of our earth-mother, seeing some old friends, meeting new people, and maybe doing some volunteer work at animal sanctuaries along the way.
Soon I’ll be retiring from the 3-11:30 world of nursing at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula’s Family Birth Center, so the time has come to bring the dream alive! This blog will be the story of the adventures that Joy, Shiloh and myself encounter along the way….and the thoughts that are evoked as a result.
Update! Life in “Wandering Spirit” began August 10, 2014, and we spent the first night under the beautiful full moon.
My trailer is a 2011 Casita, Freedom Deluxe, which I bought used in October, 2013. Peggy and Doug owned it before me and did wonderful things to it, including putting a solar panel on top, putting in a nice sound system, many other nice mods, and they also included a Honda generator, 2000. Since then a friend built a wifi antenna for me, that we fondly call the ‘Joel Pole’.
Wandering Spirit is pulled by “Joy Ride”, a 2012 Ford F150 EcoBoost. That’s a lot more power than I need to pull a Casita, but I feel better knowing the extra power is there.
