Howard & Linda were living the American Dream according to most people. But there was something missing in their corporate-based existence which included the big house, nice cars, business prestige, and country club privileges.
What was missing was a deeper happiness and connection between them. So, in a moment of enlightenment, or mid-life crisis if you prefer, at age 41 they quit their jobs, sold their dream home and cars, and gave up their status and community in exchange for life on the road in an RV for an indefinite period.
Howard, a former attorney, accountant, and business owner, researched the RV lifestyle night and day for a month. Linda, a former operations manager and small business owner herself, instigated the whole idea. After careful research and determining potential costs and income sources, the pair made the decision quickly and, after giving six months’ notice at their jobs, they were on the road. That was in 2005.
Along with that decision, they decided to start a website called RV-Dreams.com. It is a site in which Howard took the mounds of research he had done and compiled it into one place for others considering full-time RVing. In addition, he and Linda decided to open up their lives and post their journey, their triumphs and mistakes, and their financial information for a more complete, honest look at full-time RVing. Their diversity of experiences, their age, and their background have combined to create an interesting perspective on RV living. They will be appearing for the first time ever at the La Crosse Sport Show. Don’t miss your chance to take in one of their daily seminars.
