In our previous lives, Karen was a dental hygienist. She began her career in the dental field as a dental assistant in 1978 and became a dental hygienist in 1985. (Wow, a lot of years!) She is now anxious to begin this new chapter in our lives of Fulltime RVing. Steve was in local law enforcement beginning in 1982. He spent the last 22+ years as a Crash Investigator. We are both very anxious to travel and embrace the adventures which lie ahead.
In April of 2010 we purchased a Tiffin Phaeton 40QTH motorhome. We managed mainly short weekend trips and a few trips of a week or ten days several times throughout the year. (Hey, we were still employed at that time!)
Finally, in October 2012 we closed on the sale of our S&B house in Virginia and lived in our motorhome locally until we were able to finally retire at the end of 2012. This actually worked out well for us because ,although we were now living fulltime in our motorhome, we were still in a familiar area should any problems arise. Fortunately, none did and we made a beeline south in January, 2013 to Panama City Beach, FL to "winter over". Wow, we certainly did not miss the colder weather up north.
