Who we Are, What makes us tick, our passions
We are Tom & Roni (Veronica) and our 13 year old mini goldendoodle Bogey from Cincinnati, Ohio.
Married 41 years 2 daughters and 4 grands with one on the way.
Tom is a mechanical engineer and IT guy who likes bourbon, golfing, and walking.
Roni is a former dental hygienist who likes bourbon, golfing and walking, but also photography and genealogy.
Bogey like sleeping, eating, belly rubs and his purple foam ball.
We have been camping over 30 years, motorhoming since 2001 and we like it enough to turn our world upside down, sell the house and all our possessions and hit the road full time in a Class A motorhome.
In fall 2014 we decided to look into full timing and broke the news at Christmas when our whole family was at our house. Let's just say the big announcement was met with a less than enthusiastic reaction. As a reality check, we attended an RV-Dreams seminar in Sevierville, TN. OK this could work. We bought a new motor home in Spring 2015 - a 2015 Newmar Ventana 4369.
Shortly after that, we attended the Newmar International Rally and met literally thousands of like-minded people many of whom were spending at least half time on the road. Returning home we got busy preparing to sell the house, 99% of everything else we owned, and outfitting the motorhome for full timing.
The house sold in 3 days. We contracted with an on-line auction company - Everything But The House - to sell our extra car and the contents of the house, and packed up the coach to hit the road. Launch date: March 19, 2016.
