Have you ever wondered where folks that live in Florida “retire” to? Then you’ve come to the right place. My husband and I (and our two shelties) live near St. Augustine, FL. We own an RV and have hit the road in an attempt to find out. Ride along with us on our quest.

This is us


Bill hails from North Carolina and is a graduate of Colorado State University and Florida Institute of Technology. He is a die-hard Tar Heel, CSU and Denver Broncos fan. He is a retired software engineer and enjoys travel, photography, reading, bicycling, and working on the computer.

Luwana was born and raised in Ohio and is a die-hard Buckeye. She is a graduate of Lipscomb University, Vanderbilt University, and Virginia Tech. She retired from teaching at the college level but also did some software engineering and corporate training. Her hobbies include traveling, reading, bicycling, and dabbling with photography.

This map was generated using Road Trippers but is not intended to show our exact route – in fact the stops are shown in reverse order. Bill uses Garmin BaseCamp to program our RV capable GPS with the actual route. He also consults the Mountain Directory for information on highway grades.
