This book might help you answer some questions that may have crossed your mind once or twice. The questions might be along the lines of: Would you want to quit your job, or maybe "retire", and take to the open road? Would you want to use your time off to travel across the United States and see places you have read, heard or dreamed about? How did the author decide to leave his career, pack up his belongings and leave familiarity behind? This book includes a description of the ideas leading to the decision, the preparations before hitting the road, and the start of his story of living out on the road. The book describes places, people, ideas, opinions and best of all, the freedom of choice. So grab this book and decide for yourself the answer to the question "So, You Think You Wanna?".
While the first paragraph touches on the gist of this book, the book also provides the reader with an easy, fun read. The reader will find out why and how the author decided to leave his career of 25 years, well before retirement age. Inside youʼll experience his preparations to purchase a "big rig" motorcoach, to connect a tow vehicle to that RV, and how and where he "left it all behind". Out on the road the authorʼs mind wandered - just like his routes along the highways. Youʼll feel his love for the open road and the joy of not knowing where the next stop would be.
Though many miles were driven simply because they could be, there were often times when the author stopped to look up old friends, friends of friends, his relatives, and relatives of friends. You will begin to see how people became as important, and then more important, than the places he visited. You will feel what it might have been like to have the freedom to get away from the office, clients, schedules and an almighty income. You may just decide that what you felt would be a great idea might not be as great as you thought. This book might also serve as a travel guide for your future travels across the wide open plains, into the mountains, along the shorelines, and through National Parks, Forests and Monuments. You might even realize the small towns of America are worth a stop and a visit.
This book tells the story of the start of what was a once-in-a-lifetime journey. To know the entire story, youʼll need to read Steveʼs other two books titled "So, You Think You Still Wanna?" and "So, You Think You Really Wanna?".
Steve Verseman is a regular guy, and a dreamer. Steve followed a fairly normal path through life - grade school, high school, college and then into a career. His life continued with more normalcy - marriage, home ownership, community service and a continuation of his career. Yep, just a regular guy. Along the path of life, Steve began to dream a little more. He dreamed of retiring at an early age, but reality always woke him up from that dream. Then came one of those moments in life where a monumental decision needed to be made. His career - no, rather the job - and other life circumstances led him toward a chance at his dream. With one surprising decision he was on his way to living his dream. He quit his job, packed up a few belongings and hit the open road for a two year "retirement".
