I am a home inspector when the phone rings, and when it doesn't I am retired. My wife is a very dedicated third grade teacher.
I enjoy going to music festivals and boondocking. I make improvements to our 66 Tradewi between camping trips.
When I am finished with it, I will start working on my 84 Excella that has been sitting for the past 5 years.

Dan

For the last 17 years or so I have working in the swimming pool business. At one point, or another, have done just about everything except to dig the hole for a pool. Worked in pool supply retail, wholesale, service & for the last 13 years have had owned a swimming pool cleaning business in SW Florida. Was thinking about the events of 9/11 today & remember sitting watching The Today Show in a customers family room on my route when we watched the second plane hit that morning. Some things one never forgets. BTW, President Bush was only a few miles away that morning giving a talk at a local school that morning in Sarasota, Fl. The takeoff of Airforce One is still talked about here locally. My wife is a professionally trained chef. My pool business is listed with a broker right now & when it sells we plan on going full time with our Airstream. We have a work camper position lined up with a KOA in Bar Harbor, Maine for next season from May thru October. My wife's job can travel, she can take her knives with her anywhere. In the past few years, most of her work has been as a free lance yacht chef on private yachts in South Florida. I think she has done 5 crossings to the Bahamas so far this year. So, I've got an AS, a diesel F250, a good dog & a wife who is a hard worker & a great cook .... yes, my life is good .... just need to sell my pool business & life will get really good.

We have friends who are doing their residency right now. Much, much work. Good luck to your partner and good for you for supporting him. We need good doctors.

I have been padding my overtime hours and embezzling when I can so I can hit the AS road full time.

I have been a flight attendant for 26 years..my hubby has been with the airlines for 33! When we are on vacation the very last place we want to be is the airport! Owning a Bambi and hitting all of the National Parks has been a long time dream of ours! Any other airline people out there??

I am a teacher and will retire in less then a year. I am 98% finished with restoring my second airstream and it should be ready to go and be on display at school when I walk out the school door for the last time. I will drive off into the sunset.

Flamingo-kid1 is still here!

We are still here, still have our trailer, but have not had time to take her out. Our street in front of our shop has been under construction for yet ANOTHER loooooong summer, this is the second time in SIX YEARS, and we are working a LOT harder for a LOT less. Hope for the future, I guess.

Thanks for all the nurses, firefighters, educators, cops and military folks - and rock stars, lawyers, web entrepreneurs, home makers, retirees...I'm sure I'm missing some of you! :-) This is like our own version of Studds Terkel's "Working" :-)

Ok, I currently serve as VP of Learning at a Fortune 100 P&C insurance carrier (won't mention names - we don't write RVs :-) ).

In my spare time, I'm a wannabe singer/songwriter/piano hacker. Please pardon a thoroughly shameless plug of my stuck-in-the-70s "midlife crisis" album:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/familiar/id431117737

But my newest career aspiration is to somehow get paid for Airstreaming full time :-)
