Herb & Ginger's RV Travel Adventures

Wishing everyone good health, safe travels and a wonderful year. Check our itinerary to see what we are up to.

Hello everyone. We are Herb & Ginger Conly, formerly residents of Vermont, and now full-time RVers (we call ourselves RV Gypsies). Welcome to our travel journal!

We camped and traveled on weekends and vacations for a number of years. We started with a two man tent and did some motorcycle camping. We graduated to a larger tent, then a pop up camper. In 2001 we bought a used 29' Winnebago "Minnie Winnie" motorhome. In 2005 we ordered a new Mobile Suite 32' 5th wheel and a Ford F350 dually truck and enjoyed using those. We have met many wonderful people on our RV adventures, some of whom are now among our closest friends. Because we enjoy RV travel, seeing new sights and meeting new folks so much, we decided in 2009 to full-time RV after we had both retired. We ordered a custom built 36' Mobile Suite 5th wheel and took delivery in late October of 2009.

Herb retired from state government in September of 2009 and Ginger retired from IBM on December 31st of 2010. After spending considerable time and energy downsizing our personal possessions and taking care of some home projects in preparation for putting the house on the market, we hit the road in the early summer of 2011. In late 2011 we traded our F350 for a custom built Ford F450 King Ranch. In the winter of 2014, after having many problems with the 2010 Mobile Suite, we decided to make a change. We ordered a new Tiffin 40' Phaeton motorhome and a Jeep 4 door Wrangler, taking delivery of both in April. We like both very much. No one stands behind their product like Tiffin!

We want to stay in touch with our family and friends, letting them know where we are and what we are up to. This journal seems to be the perfect tool to do that (a thank you goes out to our very good full-timing friends, Tom & Nancy Stearns, who introduced us to it and paved the way by using it)!

Feel free to follow us in our travels - check out our itinerary page to see where we will be headed next. We encourage you to leave a message for us. We may choose to post your message in our guestbook. And if you would like email notification of when we send update notices (irregularly), simply click on the "Request Updates" link.

You never know how long you are going to be on this earth or what life will bring. We have lost far too many family members and friends to ugly diseases. That is, in part, what led to our decision to full-time. Follow your dreams and have some fun while you are here - you never know what lies around the corner!!

If you would like to travel but can't right now - we invite you to travel along with us through our Journal!

Take care and safe travels to you,

Herb & Ginger

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
