Retired couple that loves the full time RV life!


Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Soon after I retired from nursing we sold our home and rentals to our son and began full time RV life. We are nearly three years into it now. Traveling is in my wife’s DNA as much as mine. We spend a fair amount of time at our home base 10 acres to be part of our grandchildren’s lives who all live within an hours drive.
As a second career I am a custom cabinetmaker and furniture builder. Also, making wine, mostly fruit wines is a great pastime for me. The fruits are mostly from our own property.
Living the RV lifestyle has afforded us to meet so many people from across this country.

We love both cats and dogs but are living without them now.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We travel the 1000 mile length of the Baja about every year. Two of our favorite places to boondock on that journey are Playa Santispac on the Bahia de Concepcion and Santa Ynez a cattle ranch in the middle of nowhere near Cataviña.

fixtrauma's Hometown

Lebanon, Oregon is a small town of about 16,000. I was born in our hospital here right after it was built. Twenty years later I returned as a new nurse and the woman who hired me was the same one who signed my birth certificate! I spent most of my career about 50 yards from where I was born. When growing up this was very much a logging and wood industry town. Much of that is gone but our town is transforming into a university town. About ten years ago a medical school was built here and they now have nearly 410 medical students. That is stirring up other related businesses in the town. We maintain about ten wooded acres on the edge of town that we call home when not traveling. Very quiet but near to downtown activities.
