We officially started traveling with no home base 6 years ago today. We left Portland, Oregon in a 22ft 1973 Class C RV (that’s an RV with a van front and) called the Brougham. It had bald tires, a bad alternator, bad differential, and a leaky roof, but it got us all the way to New Orleans before we traded it off for a guitar and a motorcycle. Not a bad trade really. Since then we’ve upgraded twice to a 32ft bumper pull and our current 39ft 5th wheel toy hauler. We’ve also upgraded from the bike we got for the Brougham, a 1980 Honda Twinstar, to a 1979 Yamaha Enduro and now we’re both riding 2000 something dualsports (street legal dirt bikes basically) on a regular basis. Many changes, all good, we never thought we’d make it to six years on the road, and we see no end in sight!
We celebrated today with a good ride after work on a nearby forest road, eating some chocolate, and getting home just before dark. Now, pizza and a movie! Here’s to another six years on the road!
