For years I've been reading RV full timer blogs to absorb as much knowledge as I could about the full time lifestyle. There are tons of RV blogs out there, some really interesting, some mediocre and others that make plain vanilla ice cream seem like the most flavorful taste ever known.
Every now and then, you come across a blog that is a stand out, that is just a pleasure to read and after each post, you feel that you've had a great visit with an old friend.
One of these standout blogs is Because We Can. I've been reading this blog written by a full timing couple for over five years now. The cool thing is it's a "two-fer", because the better half of this couple writes a "Cliff Notes" version called, what else? Because We Can II.
Bob and Linda retired and hit the road full time back in 2005 and have traveled all over the U.S. They have a great outlook on life, their blog is full of fun, great information and a positive outlook. After reading their blog(s) almost from the start, I felt I knew them very well, even though we had never met.
That changed when I read they were coming to our area and even staying at our favorite campground, Bull Run Regional Park in Centreville, VA. I sent them an email and after some back and forth plans, we got together last night for dinner. What a great time we had with them.
Their blog has been an encouragement and an inspiration to us as we've been making our plans to full time. After a too short time spent with them, we've been reassured that all the "fun" we've gone through to begin our journey will be worth it. Because We Can.
We've already made plans to meet in Quartzsite, AZ in January. New friends we've known a long time, now we're glad we finally got to meet them!
