Enjoying life with hubby and our extremely friendly Border Collie/ Sheltie dog, Dakota. This summer We are campground hosts for the Olympic National Park in Washington State. We have spent the last two winters near Blythe, California. We love nature and seeing wild animals.
We like the quiet and can sometimes seem like hermits staying to ourselves. We have been full-timers for almost three years as our only home is on wheels. We are enjoying the western United States and do not expect to drive back across the Mississippi. We are from Pennsylvania. We are grandparents and have four grandchildren.

The Degenhardts's Hometown

We are always traveling! Our hats are in our motorhome. We have spent a small portion of our last two winters in Blythe, California, but that's as permanent as it gets for us!
