I’m Rae Crothers, a thirty-something year old Canadian gal and definitely not a ‘typical’ RVer!

At 29, I decided to stop buying into the myth perpetuated by our society; that is that we must slog away at a job we hate for forty years before we are allowed to live.

These two quotes really sum my two main reasons for making such a drastic lifestyle change:

“…we are brainwashed by our economic system until we end up in a tomb beneath a pyramid of time payments, mortgages, preposterous gadgetry, and playthings that divert our attention from the sheer idiocy of the charade. The years thunder by. The dreams of youth grow dim where they lie caked in dust on the shelves of patience. Before we know it, the tomb is sealed.

Where, then, lies the answer? In choice.

Which shall it be: bankruptcy of purse or bankruptcy of life?”

and

“I don’t want to come to the end of my life and realize I have lived someone else’s version of it.”

After some consideration, I decided that the full-time RVing lifestyle would suit me very well, I took a leave of absence from work, downsized, moved into a 31′ motorhome, and hit the open road. I haven’t looked back!

I love this life! How else could I possibly see all of North America and still sleep in my own bed every night with my trusty feline co-pilots by my side?

There is no shortage of good days. It is good lives that are hard to come by.
