“The coasts we’ve seen, now traveling between!”
“You have to go out but you don’t have to come back!”
In the early 80’s, we met and served together on a 378′ High Endurance Marine Law Enforcement Coast Guard Cutter homeported out of Boston, Massachusetts. We’ve sailed the high seas; visiting 8 countries, while conducting military readiness, maritime law enforcement and search and rescue missions in the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean.
We married less than two years later and made Boston our home. Soon after, we started our family. We grew to love traveling all over New England, living on the ocean, snow skiing and hockey, seafood and watching our favorite Red Sox!
After 40 years of combined military service, we settled down in the land of Thoroughbreds, the world’s best bourbon and bluegrass in Kentucky. However, we soon found that American dream was someone else’s. We both longed for freedom and our restless souls took us on the road riding our two Harley Davidson motorcycles.
Eventually, our day trips turned into weekend excursions. Then, those weekends turned into weeks that stretched into month-long journeys and adventures. The road called us. We found ourselves on the road more than at our Kentucky address. We learned to live with just the leathers on our backs. So, in 2014, we decided to buy an RV, sell our home and everything in it, pack up our two kitties and hit the road to live life on our terms.
Now, as adventure-seeking nomads, we enjoy sharing our journey in hopes of inspiring others to find their own American dream.
