    Default Just wanted to introduce myself and say "Hi"

    Hello all! I just discovered this website yesterday and have already spent hours going through the messages and articles. What a great site! I'm a road trip fanatic. I love to drive. My idea of a dream retirement is to sell everything, buy an RV and just drive. I'm very fortunate to have a job that I love that allows me to travel quite a bit. I've been to 46 states (missing Alaska, Kansas, Vermont and New Hampshire) and 26 countries on 5 continents.

    Unfortunately my (as of very recently ex) wife HATES being in cars so it limited my ability to do serious road tripping. Now that I am no longer involved in that situation, I look forward to doing a lot more of it in the near future.

    Below is one of my favorite pictures I ever took from a road trip. I drove cross-country with just my dog and stopped along the way to take this picture.

    Default A good plan.

    Yours sounds like a good plan. I was not yet retired though I had reached senior citizen rank when I undertook my first road trip in North America. It was unplanned. It was to attend my son's wedding. Since that day 14 years ago I have covered almost 200000 miles including three trips to AK - one to Deadhorse.

    Welcome to RTA! Please feel free to jump into any thread where you feel comfortable, or start your own thread about any upcoming trip for you. It's how I got started here, 4 years ago, and haven't regretted a minute of time spent here. I, too, love to plan and go on road trips, and have been going on them for 50+ years, thanks to my parents. Fortunately, my husband feels as I do, and we are looking forward to MY retirement so we can do trips whenever we can, instead of whenever work dictates that I have time off.

    Anyway, welcome aboard!
