“Every day we are alive is a beautiful day.” – Debra Parmley

ADVENTUROUS AUTHOR: That would describe me as I live with my husband in a motorhome full time and we travel the United States of America while I write my books.

Currently we are guard gates at an oil rig in southwest Texas, and we will be here for the next 30 days boondocking in the motorhome. We are off of our GPS, on a ranch with private roads. Almost off grid. I plan to get a lot of writing done here as there are no distractions. We leave in April to make our way to Cody, Wyoming where we will be working from April until October.

Last summer, my husband and I spent five months living in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, in Rodanthe, for the 2022 summer season. Life on a sandbar is as close to living on a beach as you can be. Within five minutes of stepping out of our motorhome, I could be standing on the beach. Living on a beach had long been one of my dreams. It was a fascinating and beautiful place to live.

Beautiful Day Traveler is Debra Parmley’s RV Travel Blog. https://beautifuldaytraveler.wordpress.com/ You will find posts from our 109-day western U.S. trip in 2021, and posts from our summer of 2022 in the Outer Banks on my blog.

I am also at work on my first travel memoir about our first year on the road.

Memphis is where we started out, before we sold our house to move into the motorhome.
Oh, the places we have been! Oh, the many more places we will go!
