We travel in our 2005 Winnebago Vectra 40FD and tow our 2011 Buick LaCrosse around America.

About us:

I’m a Dutch/American citizen living in Minnesota since 2001, arrived with 4 suitcases after I married my American sweetheart. I’m “working” on my retirement now since September 2016 and want to fulfill my next dream, touring America in our RV. We still live in a stick and brick house!

I served 8 years in the Dutch Marines and about 25 years in Dutch Law Enforcement, after I started living in America I became an IT person. (MCSE- Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer)
