Hello and welcome to my blog!
I’m a single woman in my sixties exploring the western U.S., living full-time in a 17-foot Casita Liberty Deluxe with my two canine pals, Spike and Bridget.
I’m originally from northern New York and formerly from Florida. I sold my home in Athens, Georgia, where I was a teacher, and two days later headed west to pick up my travel trailer, subsequently dubbed the Best Little Trailer (BLT), and to begin a new lifestyle as a vagabond.
By nature I’m a loner.
(I said LONER, not serial killer, okay?) As a child I liked to pack a lunch and spend the entire day, alone, in the woods. Over the years I’ve learned, out of the need to survive, to enjoy the presence of people, although at times I could use a refresher course!
I relish solitude.
I do care about people — don’t get me wrong. I can and do miss the people I love, but I can honestly say I’ve never been lonely a moment in my life. It’s a gift, never feeling loneliness. One day in my mid-thirties I realized that I didn’t even know what loneliness felt like, explained to me as an intense longing to be with people.
My writing style makes me seem very approachable and likeable. RVSue is an easy-to-talk-to, honest, and sincere sort. The lady behind RVSue (named Sue by her parents) can very easily, at the slightest provocation such as an uninvited visitor, turn into a moody and cantankerous hunk of woman.
For this reason and the fact that my privacy is precious to me, I ask readers not to drop in on me. Please do not intrude on my life by parking near my campsite to stare or by gawking at me while I’m out and about. I open my heart and home via RVSue and her blog, but please remember Sue enjoys being alone. Blogging suits me well because I can interact with all kinds of interesting people without having to actually meet them, forfeit part of my day, or reciprocate with a dinner invitation.
I am happiest in natural surroundings.
I relate well to animals and they to me. I’m unsentimental, thrifty, analytical, compassionate, and curious. I love words. My exceptional ability to amuse myself is one of my greatest life-tools. I appreciate simple pleasures. I avoid confrontations. I’m not political. I’m not a worrier. I have a deep love and gratitude for my Savior Jesus Christ, but I am not dogmatic. I try to be tolerant of others, although I’m not always good at that.
Enough about me.
Read my blog and we’ll get to know each other the most enduring way . . . over time.
