Back in 2011 Lynn and I were at the end of our ropes with the crap that was going on at the time.
So we decided to get a truck and a trailer and hit the road with our hopes that we would find a better life living out on the range, so to speak.
I thought at the time it would be a great idea to convert the truck over to compressed natural gas and share with the world all that was great about CNG. Remember, gas was over $4.00 a gallon back in 2011 here in the peoples republic of California.
However, things changed when we got a call from Lynn's Brother who said their Mother was in very bad shape.We stopped everything and stayed at our old house for another few days.
Lynn's Mother passed into the other side one week later, and that is where it all changed.
Next thing you know, we are now living in Lynn's Mothers House and we are the proud owners of a house in Santa Cruz, California's east side.
So, once again we were back into the stick and brick world , I started to work as a used car sales person.Well, lets just say I sold cars faster than they could supply them, so in the end it really didn't work out. After that I went to work for an old buddy, and low and behold he closed the Shop one month later.
Then it was fun with driving for Henry Industries, who will be giving me a check as compensation for ripping off all of their drivers.
So a little while ago Lynn and I started to look at motorhomes and trailers once again,
because we are gypsies by nature , and the road is calling us once again.
You see, when we were Motorsports photographers we hit the road every weekend to do our job,
but we always had come back home afterward.
So, in closing; we got our motorhome and we've got our plans and we are outta here very soon;
once we get the damn heater dealt with . Oh, and the new fuel lines. Oh yeah, and the correct tires... wait, whose idea was this again?
More posts coming.

Five years Ago We Tried to Leave Santa Cruz
Joe with the help of Art Sotomayor Made our 1996 Ford F-350 and CNG Truck.
Gas was $4.00 a gallon back then.
We were within one hour of hitting the road and then we got the phone call.
Everything was on hold and soon we sold our truck and our Jayco Trailer.
Next it was used cars and working to pay the bills.
But after Four Years of Watching People Destroy their lives we decided to take to the road once more.
But No CNG this time!
We are heading out with a 1977 GMC Motorhome.
Hey it gets Pretty Good MPG for a motor-home.
And just look at it, Ain't it cool looking?
