Meet Forrest & Mary Clark
Forrest is a retired pastor after 40+ years, and Mary a retired teacher. It has been Forrest’s lifelong dream to RV fulltime, and while his wife Mary had trepidations – she decided to give it a try too.
They are semi-retired however – Forrest is now a life coach working remotely to support his clients via telephone and internet. Mary has not yet decided what she will do to supplement their pensions. Both are also volunteers for the Red Cross through the Escapee’s DOVE group, allowing them to be deployed as early responders in their RV.
We met up with these two at the beginning of the year in Cedar Key, and enjoyed being neighbors. They had just hit the road a couple months earlier, and so far – thoroughly enjoying the lifestyle. Their only regret so far is buying a brand new RV, and we just followed up with them to learn they are now on the hunt to trade it in for a well loved used one.
Check out the video interview below to learn more about them, the obstacles they overcame to hit the road and why they regret having gotten a new rig.
