About me

Introduction Hi, We are Leeanne and Gary and along with our beloved kitty Alley we are The BooneDocks. We are both former Ford people. We lived in the burbs of Detroit. We have been considering for at least 10 years living full time on the road. We have been going to RV shows and dealer lots for over 20 years. After Gary left Ford, he worked as a salesman at an RV dealer in large part to gain knowledge in anticipation of full timing. I was not quite signed up so we experimented a bit. We rented a 30 foot motor home from the dealership and successfully completed a 1,000 mile trip about Michigan. I still needed some more testing of the lifestyle so I agreed when Gary proposed buying a hoopty motorhome -- a 1989 Southwind. And we also bought a hoopty car to tow behind it -- a 1993 Escort Wagon. But we took a number of trips in the 3 years we owned them -- Myrtle Beach twice, Ontario twice, Michigan UP, and several others -- and concluded we did like the lifestyle and would give full timing a whirl as soon as I retired. And this is where our blog begins in 2010 with the purchase of our full timing rig.
