Author: Sharon Waters
A restless sixty-nine year old, Sharon Waters buys an RV, leaves everything behind except her devoted pets, and embarks on a solitary journey akin to the proverbial wandering in the desert. Her three-year trip along harrowing highways and in freezing parking lots tests her strength, ingenuity, and resilience. She digs deep into her personal marrow, meets many, and learns much along the way, but mostly it's a search for herself. This inspiring memoir relates a wealth of practical knowledge and tells a cautionary tale for those new to RV travel. For more experienced travelers, she shares familiar insights as well as ordeals they may wish to avoid. Throughout her venture, the author is comforted by her steadfast companions, two Schipperke dogs, Magic and Cricket, and a cat named Milo. By the end of her journey, Ms. Waters finds that for all her focus on RV improvement and maintenance, it's her self-esteem and confidence that gain the most from her challenging odyssey. Her quest becomes less about a place as destination, and more about achieving a peaceful state of mind.
