Thank you for visiting our blog! We are Dan and Jonell Anderson, and in 2013 we decided to throw caution to the wind and radically change our lifestyle. We sold our house, belongings (most of them!), quit our jobs and purchased a 5th wheel. We are too young to retire, so we will be working and traveling around this great country of ours.
Jonell has spent the last 10 years working at a level one trauma center as a CT Technologist, and Dan was a Math Teacher for 27 years. Originally we planned to work until “retirement age”, and then travel the country. But one thing Jonell learned over the years while working at the hospital was how quickly a person’s life can change through accident or illness. She has talked with too many people who were waiting until they had just the right amount of money, or were waiting for just the right circumstances before pursuing their dreams. And then “something” happened, and they were never able to fulfill those dreams.
Life is too short. For the past several years, we have been following several blogs, reading books and attending rally’s to talk with other full-timers. The one thing we hear over and over from other full-timers, is that they wish they would have started sooner. And many of them encouraged us to follow our dreams now, rather than waiting. So when Dan hit the “Big 5-0” in 2013, we knew it was time to pursue our dreams, and off we went!!
Currently we have no source of income other than our savings and the jobs we do on the road. As we begin to get a little older we do have IRA’s, investments, a pension, and Social Security to assist us with income.
We plan on sharing our experiences work camping, and playing tourist. We appreciate comments on our blog, and hope you will follow along on our journey! If you want to contact us directly, we can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org
