Here we go!

About 2-1/2 years ago, also when we started this blog, we started thinking about embracing the full-time RV lifestyle and jumping into it. Due to many different work and life situations it didn't work out at that time. We started thinking about this idea again and with some recent events that happened in our lives, which maybe I'll talk about some day, we decided to jump in with both feet. Kim did all the hard work and got our house on the market and we got a full priced offer within 4 days! We are now heading out after doing lots of downsizing and putting some items in storage (thank goodness for great relatives). For the next couple of months we are planning on staying in the Northwest then head south for the winter months. We will update as we change locations and talk about how we make this lifestyle work for us and the furry babies and where are good places to stay with 4-legged kids.

We are excited to make this change and start a new part of our life and look forward to sharing it with everyone.

One of the recent changes that I will mention now is that we lost Bruno to canine lymphoma on July 28th. He fought a great fight and was a real trooper going through almost 6 months of chemotherapy but unfortunately did not go into remission at the end. We are thankful for the many years we got to be Bruno's humans and the joy he brought to us. He is now resting peacefully with his big brother, Merlin. This blog will always be Five Dogs and Us in their memory and they travel with us in spirit and watch over their brother and sisters.
