About Us

We are Jennie and Stuart from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We are currently at home planning next year’s trip.
Jennie likes the sport of curling so we still spend our winters in Toronto and will be spending our summers in the RV exploring North America.

Jennie has been retired for a while and Stuart got laid off in 2009 and decided to retire early. We had been looking at RV's for many years and when the kids moved out in January 2010 we were ready. We bought at 37 foot class A in April 2010 and were on the road for the summer in June.

When traveling, we don't like cities much, other than for some retail therapy so we spend as little time in them as possible. Our best days are the ones we can spend hiking around the great outdoors.

Life in Our RV
Some of our friends and family asked what it was like spending so much time in the RV so I wrote a set of posts explaining our life on the road.
