Welcome to Mike and Diana Griffith's RV Life Blog!

Welcome to our new blog! We invite you to follow us as we travel throughout the USA and Canada in our Durango fifth-wheel. We'll be sharing the highlights and pictures of our travels on this blog. Rather than retiring in the usual sense, here is a short summary of our retirement plans: 

We've already sold our home in Kingwood, TX. We currently live in our RV in an RV Park North of Kingwood. This means we went from 2560 SF to 335 SF! Now THAT was a real challenge! We'll be updating this blog about the RV in the future. We plan to leave here about the middle of May. We're going to the Dallas area to see our daughter and her family for a while.

Then North to ALASKA! We will probably spend 3-4 weeks getting there because 1) we're retired and 2) we want to go to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and a few National Parks in Utah and Montana on the way. After exploring Alaska, we'll be headed back to Banff and Jasper National Parks in the Canadian Rockies. We'll probably come back South through CA because we're too close to Lake Tahoe to miss it!

After spending the winter in the South, we'll head roughly up the East Coast next Spring toward the Maritime Provinces of Canada. Neither of us have been to Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Price Edward Island, Newfoundland, etc. 

So welcome and follow along on our journey!
