SCROLL DOWN BELOW THE MAP
After selling their house and everything they owned except the necessities of life, Karen and Lee became two RV Gypsies and began their full-time RV travels in their Winnebago Vectra motorhome. Karen is thrilled to travel without ever having to pack or unpack, yet always have her own bed, shower, kitchen and all her clothing (so she is prepared for any type of weather) with her in her new and only home. Please scroll down for photos and some history of their travels in the year 2008. Thank you.
Friends and family bid Karen and Lee a safe, happy, and adventuresome life.
