Rob grew up in NE Ohio, graduated from Ohio State and Indiana Universities, served in Vietnam, made a career in behavioral healthcare systems management, and retired in 2008. Bought our first RV coach in 2009. Started with a C Class and quickly moved up to a diesel pusher. We now spend 5 months at our base camp in Dillard GA, and from which we take various trips. The rest of the year we reside at our home in Riverview, Florida - a suburb of Tampa. We have been married 36 years, have two daughters (both speech language pathologists), and two grand daughters (both U of F grads).
Laura grew up in Hawaii, California, North Carolina, and Florida. Yes, her dad was a Marine Corp pilot. She graduated from the University of Central Florida in Orlando, and Florida State University with a masters degree in medical social work. After a number of years as a clinician, she moved up the healthcare management ranks to VP. But she then decided that having her own company would be more rewarding. She and two friends founded an on-line continuing education company around our dining room table. Six years later, they had 35 employees and were leaders in their field. Although only age 54, she sold the company in order to retire with Rob and travel.
