My name is Mark Nemeth. I'm mid-50s, single, and a firm believer in the saying: "It's never too late to have a happy childhood."
Until early 1997, I was a Network Systems Engineer working for Computer Sciences Corp. at Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California. When our contract with Nasa Dryden Flight Research Center ended in April 1997, I retired, sold my home of 11 years in Tehachapi,CA, and moved into my RV. Over the course of the next 4 1/2 years, I traveled all over the country in my RV, meeting great people and seeing unforgettable sights.
In 2002, my trip finally ended when it was time for me to go back to work. I am currently working for the Escapees RV Club at their headquarters in Livingston Texas. It's a great job, and it allows me to stay a part of the RVing community that I love so much. Now, I'm looking forward to the time when I can retire again and hit the road! Until then, I am doing technical writing and research, public relations work, RV Consumer Advocacy stuff, and just about anything else we can think up. Here's a picture of me from a trip to the State Capitol, working to get an unfair trailer tax repealed. Pretty scary, huh? Suit and tie and everything!
My fultime home was a 30' Jayco fifth wheel that I bought used in 1994. I spent several years outfitting it for the road, and have set it up for extended dry camping. Here are some pictures of the rig. To drag it around, I had a '78 Ford f-250, also customized for the task with extra fuel tanks, a generator, toolboxes, and an auxiliary water tank. Here's the truck. For sightseeing and general knocking around, I had a Honda CT-110 motorcycle that rode on the back of the fifth wheel.
As I worked to establish a home base here in Livingston, I finally sold the 5th wheel and the truck. A few years ago, I purchased a small Class-C motorhome, and restored it, doing a custom interior and a complete mechanical rebuild. I currently travel part time around the country, and I even manage to get out to Quartzsite, AZ most years. I mounted the CT110's little brother, the old trail 90, on the front of the motorhome for auxiliary transportation, and I am working on setting up my Classic '67 MGB for towing. More on that as it develops!
