Welcome to Our Story!
We are Shane and Patty Gill, we have been married for 28 years. Thirty years ago we met when Shane was stationed in Georgia. Two sons, many moves, and many countries later, Shane retired from the Air Force. For nine years we called San Antonio, Texas home. After moving around the world while Shane was in the military, we knew it would be difficult to stay in one place once he retired. Now that we are no longer military nomads, there comes a time after a few years in one place, you start to get the moving itch. We decided to fix that itch a several years ago with camping. We bought a 42 foot Grand Design Solitude 375RES. This started out as just a get-away once a month with some quality family time with the boys. But, it turned into an obsession and we fell in LOVE! We couldn't wait to book our next campsite, I would reserve our whole year camping, at least every other weekend.
We loved it so much that we started discussing full-time RV living. We have dreamed about full-time RV living for many years. We have seen the world, but only a handful of states. The plan was to do it once we were older, in our 60's or 70's, once we were "retired." We never thought it could be a reality to live in our camper and travel at our age. Now that we are empty nesters we decided, why not now? Let's get out and explore our backyard while we are still young and able! We were traveling to different campgrounds for a few months at a time as workampers. Now we only workamp at one homebase outside of San Antonio, Texas. We mostly keep our 5th wheel stationary and take long trips in our new Palominto truck camper. Thanks for following along on our journey, as we inspire others our age to get outside and explore!!
Shane is retired from the Air Force, after serving our country for 24 years. He is the captain and does all of the driving while pulling a 42-foot 5th wheel or the truck camper. He manages all the outside duties, which include the worst job of all, the shi**er when it's full! Shane is easy going, laid back, quiet, and keeps Patty calm.
Patty is not retired, she was a stay-at-home Mom for many years and started her career much later. She will be working part-time from the RV. She has a part-time job with Spot2Nite, and manages our content creation business. She is the navigator and will be planning all the trips, sites, and destinations. Patty manages most of the inside duties. Patty is outgoing, active, OCD, loud, and stresses about everything.
