Living the full-time RV life after a career in the United States Navy and after spending more than a decade self-publishing a monthly newspaper for the Irish-American community in the Midwest, among a handful of jobs at small Missouri newspapers and an assortment of different fill-in jobs.
These days I travel where I want when I want as my budget and gas prices dictate. No particular direction, destination or timetable. My co-pilot is a mixed breed 10-year-old pound puppy named Bridie.

A ten-year-old mixed breed 60-pounder named Bridie. She has never met a stranger she had not immediately fallen in love with. You were warned.
Most of my previous experiences along this line have been work based as I would deliver my newspapers around Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska but I used to enjoy the beaches of Southern California in an old motorhome back in the 1980s. I’m just not sure that’s even possible these days.
I have been living in Missouri for the past 25 years but I spent my youth in New England on the Massachusetts-New Hampshire border. But a two-decade stint in the Navy has given me the ability to be at home just about anywhere.

A pleasant stay. NomadX was interesting to talk to -- I don't meet many people who have been to both Mount Carantoohil and Castlecomer (two places in Ireland that are distant from each other.) Quiet, no problems. Welcome back anytime.
Always thoughtful, quiet, and self-sufficient. Requires no attention or supervision. And his dog loves EVERYBODY! She’s a sweetie. Always under full control.
This guest was quiet, thoughtful, cooperative, courteous, a good conversationalist, and a willing helper! He heard my chainsaw running in the back yard one day and showed up to help buck some brush with me. Much appreciated. His dog is a sweetheart! Quiet and friendly but a handful to hold onto when she wants to go somewhere. I was surprised at the gauge of the 15' lead that her human uses but after experiencing her torque and traction I understood the need for heavy duty control! But she minds well and is very sociable. His rig is well cared for and is well kept and attractive. Very self sufficient pair of Nomads. Enjoyed their visit. Tell them "HI" from us if they come your way!
