We are Dan and Gail Brogdon from central Illinois. Dan was in the home building business for 40 years. Gail was a critical care RN for 30 years.
We lived in Rochester, IL for 32 years, and began talking about the fulltime lifestyle in early 2000. In November of 2005 we purchased a Thor Mandalay 40' diesel pusher motor home after spending a year researching 5th wheels and motor homes.
We began fulltiming in June 2008 and will use this blog to allow our family and friends to follow our adventures as we travel this wonderful country. We plan to do some campground hosting and volunteering to help offset campsite fees, and will do quite a bit of boondocking in some “off the beaten path” places and check out the "local coffee shops".
We hope you will follow along with us on our journey as we travel along this new road.
