Loving retirement and traveling around this beautiful country of ours

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We’re the McKnights from York PA, mostly retired (except for a few volunteer commitments) and spending half our time on the road. We’ve been camping since 1960’s when we were pup tent purists, scoffing at big rigs wedged in next to our humble abode. Through the years we’ve slept in backpacking tents of various sizes, adding air mattresses at some point, and eventually cots. In 2013 we took a big step up when we graduated to a truck tent for our month-long trip to The Badlands and Beyond.

It was a fabulous trip and our arrangement worked so well that we did another month long trip in 2015, this time following The Great River Road from the headwaters of the Mississippi down to New Orleans. May proved to be quite chilly and damp, and we decided that if we wanted to continue camping, especially in the off season, we needed to upgrade our accommodations a bit. When we discovered Oliver Travel Trailers, it was love at first sight. We usually travel for three months, and go home for three months at a time. Works well for us, at least for now.
