About Me

Hi my name is Gord (Gordon) I am a retired business owner. I ran a successful construction painting business for 35 years.  I am married to the love Gord & Lyndaof my life Lynda, after we retired we sold our house in the city and moved to our lake cabin 3.5 hrs away from friends and family. We have 5 grown children and 6 grand children 2 years to 20 years. We live in a resort community that swells to several hundred in the summer and dwindles to a dozen or so in the winter. We travel 25 miles of gravel road to the nearest town of 3500 people, although the town is small we can buy our basic supplies there. After living in a large metropolis for most of our lives living in a remote area takes a bit of getting use to. We decided almost 10 years ago that we would try living at our cabin for a year, we have never looked back.

We both have our hobbies, Lynda is a quilter, I’m certain that if she didn’t need to eat and sleep she would never leave her studio. I sometimes envy her passion. I keep myself busy with construction, building decks, repairs and maintenance on cabins, supplying fire wood to the locals, plowing driveways in the winter, not in the summer, lol and of course painting. Our extra curricular activities range from ATV trips in the mountains, fishing in the numerous lakes of the area to ice fishing and snowmobiling in the winter. Once we have had our fill of winter sports and all the projects we never have time for in the summer are completed, then…….

…..we get into our RV and head to the sun.

The reason I established this website is to share our knowledge of 10 years of RV travel. When we started RV traveling we encountered many situations that could have been averted if we had some forehand knowledge. When we hit the road we were flying by the seat of our pants, at the time I had wished there was more factual information about the things to take care of before you leave as well helpful hints along the road. Things as simple as how to stay in touch with our kids while traveling without it costing us several hundred of dollars in cell charges, or to check highway conditions before heading out, and where to spend the night while on the road.

I am confident that this website will make your RV retirement travel a more fun and rewarding experience for you.

Get ready to live the dream.

      Thanks Bill

  2. So glad I found your site. Because Sheila has retired recently I was reading some issues from 2016 and came across your stories of Colorado Basin. We are from BC and will soon be snow birds of sorts as we intend to travel to a warm destination during the winter months here in BC. Very nice site and I will be subscribing to have all your valuable hints and suggestions.
    Thanks again
    Bob & Nan L

    1. Thanks for your interest in my website, I’m a month or two behind writing due to frozen pipes, flooding, and evacuation from wild fire, quite the year in the Okanogan.
