Wanders In Our Roadtrek Zion

We are Rod & Lillian Vokey from the West Island of Montreal. We picked up our new 2016 Roadtrek Zion on August 5, 2016 as our key "retirement project". These pages will document some of our wanders and share some of our thoughts.

First, since you may have fallen on this page in error, we should let you know that Roadtrek's corporate site is at http://www.roadtrek.com/ and Mike & Jennifer Wendland's wonderful "ROADTREKING - Celebrating the RV Lifestyle" site is at http://roadtreking.com/. These sites are probably of far more information value than this little collection of notes, thoughts and pictures. Please do visit them. You might also enjoy a Roadtrek Owner's Moment video made by Sean Stanley of Roadtrek who interviewed us when we met up with a gang of Roadtrekers near Tobermory, ON.

The next thing we should mention is that this site is a "work in progress". In fact, at the time of writing this paragraph, it is a "work barely started". We are starting using simple formatting that should work on most devices without too much "zooming and panning". We will try to keep most pictures at a low resolution without losing the usefulness so performance will remain decent for folks on slower (e.g. RV Park) or expensive connections. Over time we will work on improving the presentation and usability without losing sight of the initial objectives.

A Bit About Us

We are a 60-something couple who have been together for more than 40 years. We have no children and are down to one dog from a peak of 3 adults and 8 puppies. Through most of our years together we have been wanderers whenever we can.

Our Motorhome

Early in the summer of 2016 we determined that Rod would finally retire in the late summer or early fall. We were also free of some family obligations that left use free to wander.

We had always talked of getting a motorhome when we retired since we had always enjoyed "wandering" and exploring new places. While we had traveled extensively in North America over our 40+ years together, that had only whet our appetites.
