Rick (hubby) and I were daydreaming this morning about what we'd love to do (if money wasn't a factor) in our future after we retire. I have never really thought about this because like most Americans my age (mid-50s) live pay check to paycheck and what's a retirement plan anyway? And although I've spent almost 25 years of my life as a teacher, preschools don't offer retirement plans to teachers. So, if there will be anything left of the Social Security System when I retire, I'm sure it won't be much. When I was in college in the '70s my Sociology prof told the class that there will be no Social Security for us... looks like this premonition just might come true :)
That's all beside the point, to get back to our dream retirement... I LOVE to travel. And I also love photography. Rick loves to drive and loves to go camping... so we talked about how fun it would be to have a camper and just travel all over the mainland and Canada.
And that lead me to looking into how and when campers became popular. I thought I'd share what I found out...
As I've traveled in cyberspace I've got glances of beautifully restored vintage 'travel trailers'. Here are a few... aren't they so inviting?
I love this yellow color theme. :)
