ONE YEAR ON THE ROAD, March 9, 2008

We sold our stick house in Weatherford, Texas 17 months ago.  Retirement came a few months later and a year ago on March 9, 2007 we left the Dallas area and started on our journey.

We started out on our trek heading west toward California and ended our first year on the Mexican coast near Puerto Vallarta.  In the process we drove over 23,000 miles and visited the District of Columbia and 23 of the United States in the south and on both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. In addition, we visited 6 Mexican States.

Here’s a picture that I took of our travel map on the slide-out of the 5th wheel. (Please excuse the shadow caused by the bright Pacific sunset.)


It has been an exciting time in our lives.  We had the opportunity to visit with so many of our family and friends throughout our journey and make many new friends in the process.  We were fortunate to be able to spend a few weeks visiting with Rick’s brother, Bob, before his death last fall.

In the coming months we plan to spend quite a bit more time along the gulf coast and particularly the Texas coast.  We may, if we have time, make a trip up the center of the country following the Mississippi River to Missouri, Illinois and Wisconsin.  Then stop in on Indiana and Michigan and back down the eastern side of the Mississippi through Nashville.

It’s been great having you along on our journey.

    Congratulations on an adventurous year with no real catastrophes. Mom has been here for a year with me with no catastrophes either. Hope the next year is just as much or more fun.

    Hola amigos from Rons RV Park. Have enjoyed your blog all winter, hope you enjoy good travels and continue the blog where ever you are. We are visiting Guanajuato, San Miguel De Allende & Queretaro right now and it is a must see experience. Keep it in mind for your further travels and blog. As well, we are stationed on the south side of Lake Chapala at a RV Park called Roca Azul, once again you would love the area.
    Nice to meet you, hope our paths cross again,
    Ron & Bonnie Hunter
