Our New Home!

Greetings and thanks for visiting! Here is a photo of our new (mobile) home, a 29-foot 1993 Scotty HiLander, complete with solar panels and a 6-cylinder Cummins diesel engine with only 57,000 miles. It runs on diesel, biodiesel or a diesel/veggie oil mix. 

We will be moving out of our home in Amherst, MA on Sunday, August 23rd, and thus will begin our journey living full-time in our new rig. Until some time in October, we will be "practicing" the full-time lifestyle here in our beloved Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts until we officially set sail! 

Please stay tuned as we pack up, put things in storage, jettison most of our belongings, sell our home, and embark on this new adventure! 



  1. Hi Mary and Keith,

    Congratulations! Do you have a route planned? Where are you heading first?


  2. Hi Robin! We will do a tour of the East Coast in order to visit friends, family and communities as far south as Florida, and then head west along the Gulf Coast, stopping in New Orleans and Texas to visit with Mary's family. After that, it's on to the Southwest, the West Coast, the Northwest, and then who knows?

  3. It all sounds wonderful. I did something similar in a van back in '85 or '86.

  4. Happy to see this manifest and I know it will be time, very well spent! God bless!!
