When we became full-time RVers, we thought that we would quickly check items off our bucket list. While that is true to an extent, the reality is that as we have traveled, our bucket list has continued to grow. In fact, like our friend and fellow full time RVer, Deb, says: our Bucket List has become a "Barrel List" because our bucket overfloweth.
