My 28-year career with California State parks included working in and managing a wide variety of parks throughout California. Working in every type of park unit at various levels in many of the 277 California State Parks was an awesome experience.
Ranging from the field as a State Park Ranger to Supervision as a Supervising Ranger and a variety of management levels as Training Coordinator, Museum Director, Park, Sector and District Superintendent and just before retiring as the Northern Division Chief of Operations. The wonderful people and the beautiful park units made for an amazing career.
After this great career with California State Parks I was lucky enough to be able to retire at an early age and live the dream of exploring the country by RV.
After researching types of RV’s I settled on a Safari Trek motorhome.
The layout of this motorhome seems to fit in well with my needs and my goals for traveling solo. It didn’t take long to find the perfect Trek for sale located near Bend Oregon and was able to drive up, make the deal and return with my new home in just a few days!
Now to take some time to divest myself of possessions, furniture, and all the “stuff” that one seems to accumulate over the years. Thanks to Dad and Mom for providing the 10X10 storage shed for those possessions that I just can’t bear to part with. After many trips to donation locations and a number of friends that were in need of furniture I moved into the motorhome full-time in mid July. August 5th is the official launch date where I head out on the road.
This blog is designed to share with all my great friends and family (including those members of my parks family) all aspects of this journey. Some of my goals for the next 2-5 years will be to see all of the US National Parks, swim in a different pool or body of water in every state and spend time hiking, biking, painting, paddling and exploring all of the things this great country has to offer.
Looking forward to sharing this journey including all of the joys and frustrations with you all……. Ready, set, go……..
