HOW IT ALL STARTED
Traveling in an RV across America has been a dream of mine for over nine years. I have done extensive research on the internet and have visited several cities in America in search of answers to the RV lifestyle. I have purchased many books, magazines, and DVD's concerning all aspects of the RV lifestyle. In July of 2007, My mom and I attended The RV Rally in Redmond, Oregon. At The Rally, I attended several classes and purchased several items, including an inflatable Kayak that I stowed away in my suitcase back to Honolulu.
In June of 2008, I purchased a Ford F-250 Super Duty 4x4 diesel vehicle to pull my RV across America. I purchased the truck early to enable me to learn how to operate a large vehicle and to be able to pay it down before the end of my career. I have never driven a truck that large before and at first it was difficult. With days of practice, I was driving the truck like a champ. I even received comments from friends on how well I drove the truck.
In February of 2009, I located the RV of my dreams. It is a small 5th wheel Jayco, a bunk bed model. I purchased the 2008 Jayco 31.5 BHDS 5th wheel unit from Richardson's RV in Riverside, California. I made the deal over the internet, flew to Los Angeles, purchased the unit and placed it into storage at Alamo Storage in Riverside. On February 25th of 2009, I became a proud owner of a Jayco Super Eagle Lite 5th wheel RV.
Now all I have to do is retire, oh yeah it will happen some day soon, should be December 01, 2009.
