ROAD TRIP is a love story about two people who found each other late in life and embarked on a grand adventure to explore America. In their twenty years of gypsying around the country, they also fell in love with our land – its towering mountains, sparkling creeks, and good-hearted people. AMERICA, the beautiful, the generous, the stubborn, the strong, the fragile…you’ll find it all in ROAD TRIP. Come along! Adventure and fun await you around every curve in the road.I met the love of my life when he had just retired from thirty-one years in the Air Force which included many overseas tours, including the war years of Vietnam. I was divorced, working long hours toward a promotion that could make me financially independent for the rest of my life. But to get there, I would have to be nose to the grindstone for at least five more years. Don was fourteen years my senior. He knew time was of the essence. His argument was… “We are so lucky to have found each other. Let’s run and play and see as much of the country and world as we can while we’re healthy enough to do all the things we want to do. We don’t know what five years of waiting and working will bring. Let’s grab this moment.” What would you have done? I packed my gypsy bags and never looked back. Time gives and time takes away. I hope my book will inspire you to trade time for experiences.
