About Us

Thanks for joining us on our 2015 trip.  

We are two retired (2012) Federal Employees on our first East Coast trip.  We have made three journeys to the West Coast.  Wish us luck on our latest adventure!


The WCs


We purchased our 2012 Tiffin Phaeton unexpectedly at a Fall 2011 RV show –  in anticipation of our 2012 retirement.  Those darn RV shows will get you every time!   They must pump something into the air….

We love our RV, a Tiffin Phaeton called “Jack” – due to the one headlight we lost in California on our first cross-country trip. Well, actually, we did not loose it – it was knocked out by a Honda Civic who liked our lane more than his… We have had some issues with the coach and Tiffin has been great about covering the repairs – and knock wood and pray – that we are over the break-in hump. Sigh. I hate to put that in writing.

now aka the winecoasters as inspired by all of you RV bloggers.

Donald & I retired out of the Northern Virginia area in 2012.  We enjoyed living in the DC area – the museums, culture, restaurants – taxes and traffic!  We do miss the area and the friends we left behind there.  We are happy when they can join us on the road!  Prior to living in the DMV we were in New Jersey.

We volunteered as Camp Hosts in both 2012 & 2013 & 2014 – We enjoy hosting for a variety of reasons that you can discover at a related post.

Most of all we like the snappy vests that Oregon Parks & Rec issues to their volunteers.
