Retired Couple Just Starting Out On Our “Big Ball of String” Tour

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We’re Dave and Melanie. Melanie was a financial analyst, who retired several years ago. Dave retired from the Marine Corps after 21 years back in 1997. He recently retired from NCIS. We both REALLY enjoy playing golf. We’re new to the RV adventure and hope to spend the next year or so playing golf across the United States while seeing all the “Big Ball of String” like points of interest.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Melanie was a financial analyst and is a wizard with spreadsheets and budgets. Dave spent many years as a project/program manager, so planning, organizing and facilitating solutions is his strength. He’s also a jack of all trades, master of none.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

No favorites yet, as we haven’t been at this very long. We hope to park in quiet places within easy driving distance of interesting americana points of interest.

Dave_and_Mel's Hometown

We recently sold our house in Dumfries, VA. We’re full time in our RV while we travel around. We don’t know if we’ll be traveling a couple of months or a couple of years. Since we’ve never RV’d before, we don’t know if we’ll like it. During our travels we’ll figure out where we want to land... so long as it’s somewhere warm!
