After moving from South Wales, U.K, to New Brunswick, Canada in 1956, Graham's family began camping in a tent, up and down the eastern U.S. seaboard for a month each year, for the next 10 years. It was a great camping adventure!
Betty was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, marrying Graham in 1974. Our 4 children were born in Calgary, Alberta, and now live with our 3 grandchildren in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
We travel in a class A 2005 Georgie Boy Cruise Master LE, with trips including Alaska and the Yukon; Victoria, British Columbia and the Oregon coast; regular trips to visit family and friends in Ontario as well as regular visits to South Padre Island, Texas.
As we begin full-timing, we have mapped out an itinerary that takes us to all 10 Canadian provinces, 48 contiguous states and the District of Columbia. We are looking forward to renewing many acquaintances, and making new friends along the way! You can follow us at www.reddoch.ca
As a labour & delivery nurse for 40 years, Betty has lots of experience bringing new life into the world. She retires this week from her responsibilities as Quality Officer for Women's Health in Winnipeg.
Graham has served on a variety of not-for-profit Boards of Directors on local, provincial and national levels. In a 40+ career in criminal justice, he worked as Executive Director of both victim and offender serving organizations, focussed mainly on healing and reconciliation.
We have a 9 year old golden doodle named Charlie. He has grown up with our grandkids, so is very child friendly.
We are new to boon docking, but are looking forward to this new adventure. In the past we have preferred national, state and county parks, with Cameron County Texas Isla Blanca park as a favourite winter destination. Pacific Beach State Park in Washington State, and Camden Hills State Park in Maine are favourites. Of course, Tunnel Mountain campground in Banff, Alberta is pretty nice too!
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada is our home town, with 2 adult sons, 2 adult daughters, and 3 grandchildren here. Our licence plates say "Friendly Manitoba", and that has been our experience over the past 30 years.
Our class A 2005 Georgie Boy Cruise Master LE (gas) is 37' long, with 3 slides. We tow a small Smart Car, 4 wheels down.
