Got layed off from Sears Parts and Service and nobody would hire an "old guy". So I filed for Social Security and sat at home watching TV and surfing the internet. B-o-o-o-o-ring!!
I ride my motorcycle with a group called the Patriot Guard Riders and one of my buddies sent out an email with a picture of a Camper Van and an old black trailer he had hauled his bike around in. I went to look at it and bought it on the spot as I realized I could live in it, tow my motorcycle in the trailer and stop paying rent.
My son came to look at it after I bought it. He sat in the rear captain chair, looked around and said, "Oh wow.....It's YOU Dad."
I needed no more encouragement and Rusty (my canine best bud) and I have REALLY enjoyed life for the last 3 years traveling all over.
Redding, California is my "base of operations". I travel for 3 to 4 months then spend a couple months boondocking in the Redding and Chico area.

We had the pleasure to meet Tim and Rusty these last two days. Tim is an very interesting person and extremely considerate of others. He's a great communicator and kept me informed of his arrival time and date. He is a no-fuss kinda guy.Down to earth kinda guy and just fun to be around. Our dogs had fun running after one another. And the invitations is opened anytime. Enjoyed having them here. I would differently recommend them to others. They where a joy to spend the time with.
