The beginning of the adventure

We have taken the first step into a wider world. We bought a truck.

Not just any truck but a turbo diesel dually capable, we hope, of pulling around our home and all of our belongings. We call her Flo. She is a 2007 Chevy Duramax diesel with an Allison transmission. I went through a lot of research before deciding on that particular truck. Perhaps someday I will get into it.

For now I will just stick to the basics. I am an ER nurse, currently in Houston TX. My wife and I are packing up some belongings and either selling or storing the rest, selling our house and buying a fifth wheel trailer to take of on the road full time for a while. I will be a travel nurse and she will be a stay at trailer mom. We will be bringing along our two kids and the dog. The cat is staying with the house. (Don't get mad, we know the buyers and they will take care of her.)

In this blog we hope to share some of our experiences and maybe help share some information for others who might want to do something similar. WE have committed to at least one year of this because there are probably going to be many times we will want to up and quit. WE figure we have to give it a good solid try before passing any judgment.

So, wish us luck and read along as we try to figure all this out.
