They have spent forty years in education, in one form or another. Currently, they work as Speech Language Pathologists traveling in an RV throughout the great state of New Mexico. Speech on wheels, as they call it. They also happen to be two of the happiest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of speaking with.
As a married gal myself, I was immediately intrigued by the story of these two travelers. Married folks? In confined spaces? Happy? But when I asked them to describe the impact traveling has had on their relationship, Roy replied with exuberance,
