Couple packs life into RV to seek new adventures

Frederick, Maryland - Ralph and Gisela Jones sit in their RV with their 9-year-old German shepherd, Gretchen.

For Gisela and Ralph Jones, retirement means selling their house, moving into a motor home and setting off across the U.S. for new adventures.

Once Ralph retires in November, the couple will travel the country in their recreational vehicle, visiting every region from Florida to Alaska.

"I love Frederick but there's so much of this country that's beautiful that we haven't seen," Ralph said.

"Our family is all over the place," Gisela said.

Their first trip will be to Kentucky to spend Thanksgiving with their daughter's family.

They have been going on camping trips for around 20 years. In the last five years, they have planned their move into a motor home, researching their options and talking to people who live full-time in RVs.

The Joneses are part of a group called "Escapees," which helps full-time RV-ers get started and stay connected with other full-timers.

As members of Escapees and similar networks, they get discounted rates at some camping sites and camp free at others.
