About Us

We are the Richards, Pat, Bill and Clemson. We are both still working, both at the Thames Valley District School Board, in the warehouse. Pat in the office and myself as the shipper/receiver, Clemson of course is the family dog and he is retired all the time.

We are working towards retirement in the summer of 2016, at which we will sell everything and take up full time RVing. We have lots to learn about the life style and things to figure out but we have time.

We have both had previous lives as we like to call it, but have been together for 18 years now. Between us we have 6 children and 9 grandchildren, with the potential for more, grandchildren that is.

We are on our fourth 5th wheel trailer and think we have found the one that will do us in this retirement life style.

So follow along if you wish and join us in this adventure.  


  1. Hi Bill, I hope all is well, we have been following you on your journey with the new 5th wheeler since we met you at the RV show in London. We are looking at doing the same thing in about 5 years and I have been gathering resources since.

    I'm not sure if this is the place to ask, I do however have a question, if we are traveling to the US for extended periods of time, do we have to pay taxes during that stay? I'm referring to state taxes, not your typical every purchasing taxes of course.

    Please advise. Thank you.

  2. Hi guys, we have been wondering where u been hiding. Looks like your dreams are under way for travelling and enjoying life. Have fun and enjoy.

    1. Hi Cynthia and Larry! How great to hear from you! We have certainly enjoyed following this dream so far and it has definitely become a reality. We didn't get to Rock Glen this past year at all and we hear from Melinda and Gerry Hicks that you have pulled out. We hope to get there this year at some point since we have become good friends with those two. It would be nice to see you again. We don't have your email information so I hope you get this. Pat is writing this, a faster typer. :) Take care!

  3. Meant to say that we are in southern California right now and will be here until March 7 to Arizona and then heading home up through Vancouver on the 21st. Want to be in Canada April 1st.
