We are Chris and Angela Ried. Chris is a Nebraska native and Angela is from Texas. We have been married for 12 years and have three grown sons, two of which will be getting married soon.
We are fortunate to quasi-retire after our business partner bought our part of the company. After working extremely hard 27/7/365, we are finally taking time to enjoy life for a while. We're sure another project or endeavor will evolve one day but we aren't looking for one just yet.
We like to go to Mexico and enjoy the sun and beach (and margaritas) about once a year but it's been so much fun to explore the US. We love state parks, national parks and forests, and all of the new towns. We would love to visit Canada one day and even venture up to Alaska.
Chris is talented in several areas from framing and construction to sales training to website design and hosting. He has become pretty proficient at taking care of our rig and making some awesome mods to it.
Angela is just really friendly and is a decent cook. And she picks out great wines.
We have not boondocked before but are excited to start!
Chris was born in Omaha, Nebraska (yes, he's a rabid Husker fan) but grew up mostly in Des Moines and Ames, Iowa. Angela was born in Denison, Texas which is right on the Texas-Oklahoma border.
We have a 44-foot fifth wheel. It is a 2017 Heartland Road Warrior 427. She is a toy-hauler and we haul around our Can Am motorcycle. Our rig is named Big Betty and she has 2 driver's side slides, a passenger side drop-down patio/porch and we use the back ramp as a patio/porch also. We love to spend time out there with a cup of coffee (a must), a cold beverage or a glass of wine (Angela only).
