For the last 13 years the Orchards have lived aboard their 38-foot “Dutch Star” motor home, crisscrossing the nation, staying in group camps and national parks from the Pacific Northwest to Maine.

“At first our RV was for vacations, but when I turned 60 we had a dream of seeing the United States so we went full-time,” said Jerry Orchard. “Now our rig is our cabin in the woods, our beach cottage, our place by the lake or our hunting camp.
