First Post - Introduction

This is the first post in the Blog of the travels of Shawn and Kim. The intention of this blog is to document our travels and to share them with friends and family.
My last day with the company that I worked for 3/5 of my life is January 17. This story will begin from there.

Kim and I have loved to travel via RV for many years. We actually own two trailers. One is a 26 ft. Terry Toyhauler and the other that is really our home is a 2007 34E39RK Titanium. Here is a pic of the toyhauler, the tow vehicle (2005 Ford F350 Lariat 4 door Short bed with 6.0 Diesel) and the boat (1986 Correct Craft Ski Nautique) :

Here is a pic of the Ti in the snow:

We plan to live part time at a ranch that we are part owners in called Hardwood Hills Ranch in Missouri, and part of the time we will travel around the country in our trailers.

I love to ride off-Road Motorcycles. I have raced for almost 40 years. I rode motocross early in my career, but now ride Hare Scrambles and Enduro's. My latest interest is in Adventure Dual Sport Riding. I own a bike for each purpose.

Here is a picture from a 8 day ride in Colorado that I did Solo in 2010:

As you can tell from the boat, I also like to water ski.

My other passions are golf and fly fishing. I also am a military history buff. As you can see, I will not have trouble staying busy after retirement.
We start from the panhandle of Florida. We came down here to get out of the cold weather up north.
Here is a picture from the coast of Florida.

Thanks for taking the time to read this journal. Please feel free to post comments in the comments section.


  1. Thought I'd return the favor and stop by your blog. Very nice. Wow, you sure won't have any trouble staying busy! I will enjoy following your travels. Where was the picture taken at that is on your header? Very pretty. Looks like many of the mountains in the Sierra Nevada in CA.

  2. Debbie, Thanks for stopping by. That picture was taken near Marble, Colorado. The Aspens turning has been one of the top highlights of our travels so far.
