Carol and Phil White retired from their traditional jobs about five years ago. They knew that they wanted to see American up close and felt that if they did not do it soon, they might never do it.
“We dreamed of it for years,” said Carol, “but actually set our date to work toward about a year ahead of our actually leaving.”
The result of their planning and taking the trip is “Live Your Road Trip Dream: Travel for a year for the cost of staying home“ (RLI Press, softcover, 288 pages).
Read more about the Whites in an article I wrote about them in 2005 soon after the first edition of their book came out: “Their road to happiness.“
The second edition, out in March, includes up-to-date information. The Whites are spokespeople for the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association. Catch up on their lives on their Website: “Road Trip Dream.”
