Our names are Lee and Tracy Perkins and we have been full-time RVers since November of 2014, traveling in a 40 foot Open Range fifth wheel. After 25 years of marriage and raising 3 beautiful daughters, we knew we needed to find a way to reconnect with each other and deal with our empty nest, so despite having never camped before, we decided to try RVing. A few months later our plans to become full timers were in full swing. If you would like to read the details about that experience you can purchase the ebook of how we began our journey or check out our Becoming Full Timers Step-By-Step page.
In a relatively short amount of time, we sold our house, Lee quit his job and Tracy took her corporate job on the road. After a year of working as a mobile corporate employee, Tracy took advantage of a company buyout and we started earning the money we needed with work kamping positions. The question for us was could two people with limited savings and minimal debt earn enough money to support themselves on the road and what did that look like. Although we feel we have certainly proved it was possible, the question of how that lifestyle looks long-term is still one in which we are exploring.
Our main goal is to write the blog we wish we could have read prior to becoming full timers. To that end, it is as honest as we can stand to be and includes detailed information on our monthly expenses and revenue. We have certainly made our share of mistakes along the way, but also had some amazing moments and hopefully you will enjoy reading about them. If you don’t have time to read every post, please feel free to “skim” our story by reading some of the summary posts listed below or if you want to start from the beginning click here for our first fulltiming blog post.

We love getting emails from readers and will either respond privately or answer them in an upcoming blog post.

Thank you for sharing our journey with us. It truly is a labor of love and when we started writing it, had no idea how much sharing our story would impact us. Our life isn’t always glamorous and certainly is not without it’s challenges, but it truly is beyond anything I could ever have imagined when we first started.
