|Meet Full Time RVers John and Kathy Huggins
John is a retired Navy Electronics Technician Chief. He traded the
Navy adventure for a job in manufacturing quality assurance in 1986,
and traded the job for the RV adventure in early 2005. Kathy has held
jobs in the medical office arena as well as raising two sons. We now
have 5 grand children and two great grand children.
We have done much volunteer work since hitting the road including
working at the Escapees CARE center in Livingston, Texas. We also
are registered Red Cross disaster volunteers, and served in a
Hurricane Katrina shelter in San Antonio, Texas.
Our connection to Sarasota started in 1995 when John was
transferred from New Jersey to work for Electro Corporation, later to
become a division of Honeywell. He retired in 2004 and we bought our
motorhome and hit the road.
We are life members of the Escapees RV Club, as well as members of
Good Sam Club and Family Motorcoach Association (FMCA). We hold
campground memberships in Thousand Trails, RPI, and Passport
America. Our home park is Hart Ranch in Rapid City, SD.
Lately, we have worked in campgrounds in PA, IL, SD, AZ, and FL.
Nowadays, we have become podcasters, broadcasting our show,
Living the RV Dream on the internet. Visit the Radio Show page for
At the request of our listeners, we wrote a book about the RV lifestyle
with a major slant on full-time RVing. It is called "So, You Want To Be
An RVer?" and is available as an e-Book at Amazon.com. The
Paperback version, also available on Amazon.com is called "So, You
Want To Be A Full-Time RVer?"
This is our home on wheels, a 2004 Fleetwood Expedition towing our Hyundai Santa Fe. We have driven over 45,000 miles and
traversed the country four times. We left Florida in early 2005 and haven't looked back. We've spent much time in the
southwest in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. The summers of 2005 and 2006, found us in South Dakota. We spent the Winter
of 2009 in Yuma, AZ. We have worked at Hart Ranch the summers 2010 and 2011. We spent the summer of 2012 touring the
midwest. In the spring of 2013 we will be workamping in the Poconos in PA. Our goal is to visit all the National Parks in the
