We are both originally from Ohio. In 1982 John was transferred by NCR Corporation to Phoenix, AZ to the administration office. Gerri accepted an accounting supervisor job at Phelps Dodge Corporation, we purchased a home and worked hard to fulfill our dream of retiring to the full time lifestyle. We both took early retirement and in December of 1999 we put our house up for sale on a Thursday, sold it on Saturday and 30 days later we moved into our 5th wheel. We didn't have a truck but had a Freightliner RV Hauler on order. We left Phoenix in March of 2000 heading to Livingston, TX "to get legal" In 2003 we were offered a leased lot at the Escapees Co-Op "RoVers Roost" in Casa Grande, AZ. We traveled another 15 years enjoying family and friends along the way and returning to Casa Grande every November to winter with our Escapee family and volunteer our time at the Co-Op. in March of 2014 we sold our Freightliner, tied down our 5th wheel on our lot and headed out in our 2014 Honda Accord for a different adventure. While visiting our family in Ohio our daughter in GA found a Class C Winnebago Aspect for sale in her area. We fell in love with it, bought it and we now call it our "summer home". During the winter months we take it out of storage every month and go somewhere, whether it's to boondock out in the desert, visit our many friends in Yuma or attend a rally, we just love to travel.

Skills & Expertise to Share

John likes to woodcarve. We both are computer literate. Love to read but when we get around people we love to visit and relax.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

BLM land anywhere available, Quartzsite, AZ in January for the big RV show. Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta park for two weeks while we volunteer our time. Some Elks Clubs. We travel all over.

The Buckeyes's Rig

Our 2010 Winnebago Aspect Class C is 31' with 3 slides. We are fully contained. We have 400 watts of solar and are used to boonbocking. We also have an onboard generator. We pull our 2014 Honda Accord on a tow dolly because of the CVT transmission.
