Friendly folks, and (hopefully) soon-to-be empty nester's, yearning for the road again, plan on taking a 'deep seat & a far-away look' as we set out to explore our beautiful country!

Howdy! I'm JP, and my beautiful bride of 30 yrs is Traci. We are both former rodeo contestants, and we have 13yrs. of military experience behind us. I am the vet, and she was, and still is the patient wife behind the man. 7 yrs Navy, 6 yrs National Guard (including a 1-yr "paid" Iraq vacation). She put up with all the family separations, and she puts up with me!

We still work full-time, her as an accounts manager, and I am a self-employed plumber, and drain cleaner. We expect to be "empty nester's" in a couple yrs, and wanderlust is calling to us once again. Very recently, we've just purchased our first RV, a Windjammer 34' travel trailer, and plan on spending some long weekends on the road now, and look forward, with great anticipation to reacquainting with some old stomps, seeing some new ones, and meeting some fantastic new people.

We are fans of delicious flavor, so hope to visit many of the restaurants and other "cookery-type-places" that we've seen on Diners, Drive-In's & Dives, and Food Paradise cable TV programs.
