Retired and traveling around the USA and Canada

So as we plan for retirement in 2010 we decided we needed to get the RV we could be comfortable in while traveling to all the National Parks within these United States. A 2008 Cruiser 5th wheel pulled by an F350 Super Cab with a 6.0 Diesel.

We think we will be quite comfortable with the floor plan we have chosen. Lots of room and comfortable furnishings. Nice center kitchen and a full wardrobe in the bedroom.

We have broken it in on our camping weekends and have found we have chosen the right rig for our retirement years. We towed it to Utah over the Labor Day weekend and boy it pulls great.


We just recently found out that we have our first summer workamping job starting April 25th thru September 30th. It is a resort on the edge of Voyageur National Park in NE Minnesota. A resort with 11 cabins, more like homes, a marina with fishing boats, a small store and office.

So now we have to contain out excitement and get through the winter.


  1. Congratulations on your new life, and on your first workamper job. I know you will have some fun!
