Have you ever wanted to sell everything you own and just "take off?" Travel the country's back roads, paddle down a meandering stream, experience breath-taking mountain views, walk among 100-year old trees, and just marvel at America's beauty? That is the dream that my partner, Betsy, and I decided to make a reality. This blog describes our adventure. The food we eat, people we meet, sights we see, and the enjoyment we find in traveling.

Introducing Xscapers!

You may be familiar with Escapees RV Club, but have you heard of Xscapers

Xscapers is an RV lifestyle group within Escapee’s that aims to appeal to a rapidly growing different demographic of RV’ers.  And, RV-A-GOGO is elated to be a part of this great new venture. 

No longer are RV’ers retired couples hitting the open road after a life of raising kids and working from 9-5.  Today’s full-time RV’ers now include a younger generation of eager wanderers working from the road and raising families, all while embracing the freedom that comes from a nomadic lifestyle.    

Travis and Melanie Carr, the founders of Xscapers are no strangers to the RV world as their grandparents, Kay and Joe Peterson, were the founders of Escapee's.  Like their grandparents, the Carr's live, work and raise their son on the road full-time. In talking with other RV'ers it became apparent that the younger generation was not involved in Escapee's because the club was not meeting the needs or offering benefits that appealed to this new demographic of RV'ers. So the Carr’s set out to create “a support network geared toward a new generation of RV’ers who have already, or are aspiring to, hit the road pursuing a full-time or part-time nomadic lifestyle” and Xscapers was born.

Annual membership is a low $29.95 (plus a one-time $10 enrollment fee) and comes with plenty of great benefits.  Escapees has been around for 36 years so with that experience and listening to the needs of younger generation RV’ers, Xscapers offers benefits most needed and wanted.  Benefits include articles and blogs, mapping tools, job board, discussion forums, parking services, mail service, Escapees magazine, and much more. 

We are super excited to be one of the “Featured Bloggers” joining a cast of wonderful blog writers.  Here you will find articles on various topics that enlighten you on RV modifications, travel destinations, RV lifestyle, RV safety, financial and legal advice, traveling with kids, working on the road, and plenty of other articles that will interest any RV'er.   

If you haven’t already, take a look at Xscapers and see if the program is right for you.  Click here for a link to the Xscapers information kit.  Safe travels and hope to see you as a fellow Xscaper.
