Hi. We’re a couple of happy New Zealand motorhomers. We had lots of wonderful adventures in our campervan (AZY) we bought in May 2007. Since November 2008 we’ve been living full-time in our new motorhome (Suzi) that Traillite built. This blog is some of the story of preparing for life on the road – living in 18.5 sq metres. Then the Big Step, and the real adventure – living and working with no fixed address. (The official term is no fixed abode but that hardly applies to our circumstances. Suzi is definitely home, so is our abode. But she keeps moving around all over the place and we have trouble fitting our lives into the official boxes for almost everything official … but I better not get started on that!)
We started this blog as a way for our families and friends to see what we’re up to. But hopefully it will also be a way of having some fun, and sharing a few ideas with the wider world.
We are now in our mid-60s, so this wasn’t retirement, just big changes. We’ve got lots of interests – mountain biking, walking, tramping, photography, music, movies, reading, travel, genealogy. So we have lots to do if we can get the money/time balance right i.e. enough money and time to live and enjoy life.
Sometimes we’re diligent with this blog. And sometimes we’re not. Which isn’t helpful I know. But we’re still on the road (sort of), and still trying to keep up with the world. And definitely still enjoying our adventures and misadventures.
Since early last year we have been based in and around Dunedin; catching up with family and friends and bank balances. Wyn has been doing temp and part-time and casual work and Ross has been working 40-hour weeks on contracts. Mostly we’ve been living in Suzi (our motorhome) but we’ve also done quite a lot of house-sitting around Dunedin. We’ve managed a few trips away with Suzi, and that’s good for us all. And we’re dreaming of new adventures…
