Sharon & Jon Hubbell travel blog
We are Sharon and Jon Hubbell. We live full-time in our 36-foot Beaver motorhome and have lived and worked in the Olympia, Washington, area for nearly 40 years. We began our full-time travel in March 2005.

These entries tell of our travel adventures for 2011 – our seventh year.

The Space Shuttles were about to be retired so we determined that we would see one launched. We took our time crossing from California to Florida where we waited through the endless rescheduling. Our time was not wasted, however. While we waited, we spent time in Sarasota with Jon’s two sisters and a niece and then with some good friends from Fort Lauderdale. We came back to Washington by way of Boston, a layover to visit a friend near Buffalo, NY, and a brief stop in Kansas for a total of 32 states and 10,645 miles. We rounded off the year with a small boat cruise on the Columbia River and three months volunteering at a wildlife refuge in California – the same state where we started the year.
