June 30th was my last day of working full time as a web developer for Southwestern Oregon Community College in Coos Bay, Oregon. Prior to working there I had my own freelance web design company for a number of years. I was just shy of 9 years working for the college.
Three years ago my husband and I decided I would resign/retire from my job at the college in order to travel full time in an RV. I wrote about it here. Photography has taken over as a strong passion and I no longer live and breathe web development. Sitting at a desk all day long had gotten very old. I needed to travel and see new places!
July 1st, we left Coos Bay and haven’t looked back. My photography business is stronger than ever and I am staying connected on the road so I can fill print orders and run the rest of my business.
We’ve mostly hung around Oregon all summer due to a few family related events. Come September though, we will be leaving the state and I’ll be able to photograph some new landscapes. (I’m grinning here)
Living and traveling in our RV has been a slight learning curve, filled with a few stupid mistakes, but all in all, we are loving the freedom we have in choosing our next destination. Fortunately, we moved into our motorhome prior to hitting the road so that we could learn all about living in a smaller space. That has helped tremendously. I hope to share some of our silly mistakes and a lot of the good things happening as we travel in a separate blog all about our life on the road. I’ll post when it is live. I was hoping to have the website finished months ago but it’s been a whirlwind ride and it hasn’t slowed down much! Stay tuned…
What a wonderful life you are leading. Enjoy.
Thanks so much Alex!
Thanks for the news letters!
It’s great adventure!
May it never get old for you both…even when you trying to decide what shirt your going to give away to make room for a new shirt!
