WHO: We call ourselves ‘senior motorhome adventurers’ — a disabled woman and an amazing caregiver.
AJ Barrett still manages to teach web publishing and social media for the Southern Illinois School of Journalism, so this creative project helps her help her students. Bill Sims is a professional poker dealer. More about AJ and Bill.
WHY a motorhome?
Bill travels to deal professional poker tournaments like the World Series of Poker (WSOP) so an RV made sense for him. But the decision to travel in an enormous Class A motorhome was practically made for us by AJ’s rare and serious neurological condition. Read about her most difficult journey.
To boldly go…like Star Trek Voyager’s Captain Janeway and Lieutenant Paris lost in the Delta quadrant of the US West and wherever else we can venture in RVoyager, a 2005 Newmar Kountry Star.
A bolder mission
We started this website to share pics and travel stories during the 2020 pandemic stay-at-home. We realized that there are lots of websites out there with adventure travelers but maybe not so many that consider RVers with lesser abilities.
WHERE: Speaking of the Wild West
“Have vaccine in these guns, will travel.” During the months of stay-at-home, we created an ambitious schedule to visit National Parks, monuments, seashores, historic parks and whatever we can find near the borders of the lower 48. A loop that mostly avoids the heartland.
WHEN: 2021 spring departure
We will both have both vaccine jabs by mid-March… soon as we can after that, we aim to bring you fresh travel tales and pics. In the meanwhile, you can check previous adventures from the list below or from our handy navigation menu above.
HOW: If we learn a new how-to, we’ll share it
For instance, how to choose the right RV for you and your abilities. We attended RV shows and visited dealerships. We found ourselves overwhelmed. Check out our checklist guide (coming soon) with free downloads. We are not influencers, but we will make some recommendations based on our experiences and abilities (Products, coming soon).
