Last fall I entered the above photo in The Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel photo contest, and my submission won! 🙂

On April 30th, 2016, I started my traveling lifestyle as a full-time RV’er travel blogger, freelance writer, photographer, and Geocacher. Several other activities / hobbies will be reveal as my travel journey continues.

My excitement to leave was overwhelming, so, when my neighbor asked why I was rushing, the question captured my attention, stopping me completely when I realized my road ahead was not going anywhere.

So instead of driving nine hundred miles in two days to my birth place I decided to slow my pace and visit family & friends along the way and tour some obscure points of interest.

So, let my travel begin!  🙂
