A little about us. Jason is a retired software engineer and Navy veteran. Lusha is a former microbiologist and quality assurance manager who now works part time as a quality consultant for a biotech company. We married young (19 and 21) and it has been an adventure ever since! Travel and time in nature have been our favorite hobbies for our entire marriage.
In February 2019, after fifteen years of planning and saving, we left our full time jobs to pursue a life that we didn’t need a vacation from. We spent that spring and summer making local travels in our 2019 Jayco Greyhawk class C motorhome. This gave us and our two ragdoll cats, Jake and Indy, a chance to acclimate to life in a 28′ long box. From September 2019 – January 2020, we made our first snowbird trip south to escape the Northwest winter.
We returned from our first snowbird season the end of January 2020 with a new truck and immediately began shopping for a different RV that would better fit our travel style. We purchased a 2020 Outdoors RV Mountain Series Timber Ridge 24RKS, a decision we have been very happy with. We spent the spring preparing to full time RV, but summer brought an unexpected gift and we found ourselves owners of my childhood home.
As of fall 2020, we’re hunkered down at home working on a restoration of our sticks and bricks and minimizing travel through the peak of the COVID pandemic. We’ll be back on the road late winter 2021 for a loop through SE California, Arizona, and Southern Utah followed by a fall loop through the Dakotas, Wyoming, and Colorado. Until then, I have a backlog of posts so buckle up and enjoy the adventure!
