A couple, Marilyn Abraham and Sandy MacGregor decided to trade in bottom-line responsibilities and mortgages for a twenty-nine foot Winnebago so they could make a simpler life and did not regret their decision. The married couple found surprise and inspiration everywhere: the dazzling beauty of the Canadian plains in bloom, the vaulting red rock formations of Utah, the panaramic sky of Montana and the awsome blue glaciers of Alaska.
