We've been on the road full-time since 2013, after buying the Winnie from a surfer in Venice Beach, CA, gutting it, and making it into a little cottage on 6 wheels. I run an online business, and can work from anywhere, so I work from everywhere!
Life on the road in an RV was never my dream, but it's turned out to be one of my life's greatest blessings. I get to see places, meet people, and spend time with friends and family all over the country that a conventional life wouldn't allow. It's also pushed me far outside of my comfort zone and shown me just how much I am capable of.
I love to cook, garden, knit, sew, build, design, photograph and write. I grew up with a dad who taught me everything he knew about carpentry and auto repair, so I can usually figure out a way to fix or make just about anything I need. I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty, and I've really had fun learning how to make life on the road in a vintage RV work!
As long as it's level and quiet, I'm happy. I have pretty much everything I need in my little "bubble", but if there's a beach or nature nearby, that's a big bonus!
I started out in Southern CA, but I've lived in KS, MI, and NY too. I've traveled through 16 states so far on this trip, mostly in the lower midwest section of the US. I'm looking forward to adding to that list, although anywhere near the Atlantic ocean feels most like home to me.
1970 Winnebago D-22, Class A. No slide-outs, pretty simple and classic looking. 22' long (plus about 2' cargo trunk on the back) by 9' wide, by about 11' high. Totally self-contained, with my own water filtration, waste management, and minimal electricity use. I rarely need to plug in, but I have a 30 amp plug when needed (usually just for AC).
