To motorhome or not to motorhome. That seems to be the question!

For anyone who has a severe case of wanderlust, the appeal of living on the road for much of the year is very appealing. What better way to see America's backroad towns; to meet the people whose lives are so different from mine?

As a travel writer, I have been blessed to participate in numerous press trips that have taken me to places I would have never seen. But press trips are high speed treks zipping past places you want to stop. No chance to browse through neat shops, sip a cup of coffee and people watch, or simply relax.

With a motorhome, we will go at our own pace. And for a writer, having the ability to spend time in the places you are researching, well, it's a dream come true.

The downside of motorhomes, of course, is the close quarters; constantly rubbing elbows (or rears) with one's significant other. For now, the pros far outweigh the cons, and we're actively searching for the perfect vehicle that is within our price range.

I welcome your comments and suggestions about makes and models.

There are places to explore and books to be written! Life can be so darned exciting! Can't wait to get on the road....
