We are Phil and Judy Kerns and we are just starting to implement our adventure plan of full-time travel in an RV. We left the corporate world a couple of years ago after both of our employers were bought out and there was duplicity in positions. We decided that after a year or so of not finding another appropriate position for either of us at our age, perhaps we should consider retirement. We picked up old hobbies, fixed up the house and yard to be just what we always wanted then looked at one another and said “now what?”
We had already started travelling in a 27 foot tow trailer heading out to Yellow Stone National Park and the full North West tour having a wonderful time right away. It only whetted our appetite for more adventures. We joined a local travel club and enjoyed the short monthly travel gigs and learning the ins and outs of camp setup and take downs. Again, we longed for more.
Then, out of the blue a friend’s 5er and dually rig became available and we purchased it quickly. We talked with our adult children about our dream and found wonderful support to follow our hearts. We put the house up for sale, downsized using Craig’s List, donations to non-profits and giving mementos and heirlooms to the family, storing enough for a small cabin, condo or apartment when we want or need to get off the road. We are ready to roll, once the house sells….
We did a travel log while doing our Yellow Stone trip for the family and by popular demand promised another one. However, we have had numerous requests from extended family, friends and acquaintances to be added to the log, with that task at hand, blogging makes more sense. This will be the chronicle of our travels, adventures and to some our foolish antics or capers, hence our domain of kernskaper.com. This is our caper, to travel full-time visiting National Parks, RV Resorts, and to follow the sun or our personal call.
We hope to share our adventures and experiences with those who are interested. Please feel free to tag-along with us.
