Soon to be empty nesters "practicing" for rv life in retirement

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are relatively new to the RV lifestyle, but fell in love with the idea after renting a truck camper in Iceland in 2016. We have 3 (almost all grown) children and we'll soon be "empty nesters". We are looking forward to exploring the country by RV in retirement and practice any chance we get! We are a quiet couple that enjoys the outdoors. We love hiking, sightseeing, golfing, birding & photography. Looking forward to meeting new friends & exploring this beautiful country!

If Cookie Monster had a dog, it would be our 2-1/2 year old Bernedoodle Maggie. She's a fluffy, bouncy fur ball the size of a small pony. It's rare that she travels with us though.

Fun loving family

We so enjoyed hosting this family of three...Seemed like we have known them forever....our family of "new friends" continues to grow. Learned about their way of life...especially how he makes wine and were so happy to share some of our rhubarb so he could make more...The rhubarb wine was very good....notice I said it is all gone!!! They are welcome to come stay with us anytime
