That’s me. I was exposed to camping and RVing at a young age. Wanting to travel regularly, I became a Flight Attendant, which led to marrying a Pilot. Go figure! Although the aviation lifestyle was great, it was not conducive to starting a family. I quit aviation, became a Realtor, worked for a couple of Home Builders, and eventually I started my own company in Home Building. Oh, add in a couple of kids just for fun!
After years of running a business and raising children, it was time for a break, time for a change, time to travel and explore … time to hit the road in an RV.
Al grew up in a small farm town in Illinois and travel was something he dreamt about. After college, he became a Naval Officer and Aviator.
This was an exciting adventure well beyond those small-town dreams. The Navy took him all over the world. He decided to leave the military and go into Commercial Aviation where he fell in love with a Flight Attendant ten years his junior. Years later, Al left aviation, joined Ingrid in the business and is now retired … well, kind of.
Our Brittany Spaniel was a constant source of joy and entertainment for almost 15 years. We continue to miss his companionship and unconditional love. He was one of a kind and will always hold a special place in our hearts ♥
After numerous moves …. From Illinois to Nevada to Colorado, Al and I decided Colorado was a great place to raise the children and start our own business.
In the late 1990’s, I became a Licensed General Contractor and started a business in Home Building. It didn’t take long for Al to leave aviation, obtain a General Contractors license, and join me full-time in the business. The business turned into a very successful, rewarding, and award-winning venture.
Children …. After our son graduated from the University of Colorado (Boulder), he moved to Phoenix, Arizona. Several years later, with a degree in Business from Colorado State University (Fort Collins), our daughter joined her brother in Phoenix.
We love having both our children located in the same city.
Update …. In June of 2013, we moved into our RV full-time, and now home is where we park it. Since 2018 and with both our children living in Phoenix, you’ll find us spending the winters around the state of Arizona, usually in Phoenix, and the rest of the year meandering around her neighboring states with occasional jaunts well beyond the southwest. Lately, we like to spend our summers in northern Wisconsin with family.
Whims, weather, and family dictate our travels!
Thanks for stopping by …
Happy trails, Ingrid & Al
