Boomers Life

About Us

Our Adventures

It all started in 1997, on our honeymoon trip to Maui. With so much to see and only1 week available we travelled the island by car from the Lava fields to the Road to Hana, the Seven Sacred Pools and sunrise at Haleakala National Park.

We stayed in a kitchenette suite in the seaside town of Lahaina and used this as a base of operations.  Our travel plans consisted of a map of the local sites and our adventurous nature.

Putting things off to see “someday” is not for us…For us someday is today. 

We have a wide range of interests from Classic Rock or Country Music concerts, Pro football to live theatre, fishing, camping and spontaneous road trips. When we aren’t on the road we are busy with “projects” which could include anything from developing a basement to rebuilding a holiday trailer. And people say we’re retired so we’re not busy …. Ha, ha, ha

Tips for a Worry-free Road Trip

1. Get Travel Insurance:

This will offset costs of medical treatment, ambulance service (in the case of an accident) and additional costs. Often there is some coverage with your Credit Card or Company Benefits, be sure to check with your provider to see what is covered and what is excluded. If you need be buy additional coverage check with your Insurance Company, you can get short term or annual Travel policies for a reasonable cost. Most individuals think “but I am healthy, I don’t get sick”.We do not plan on getting sick or being in an accident but it is better to have insurance and not need it, than need it and not have it.

2.  Do a pre-check on your vehicle:

Check all fluid levels including oil, transmission, fuel, windshield washer, and radiator.

Check tire pressure, making sure they are equal to the recommended pressure in your Vehicle guide.

3. Check your towing capacity:

Know what you can tow, just because you have a hitch doesn’t mean you can tow everything.

4. Carry an Emergency Kit:

Pick one up at your local AMA or AAA, or make your own. Never know when you or someone else will need help.

5. Carry a tool kit:

Include tire gauge tire wrench, jack, extra belt, wrenches.

6. Always have a supply of water, snacks and health bars:

These will come in handy if your vehicle breaks down, you are detoured or have unexpected delays due to ongoing construction. Always be prepared for unexpected delays such as inclement weather or travelling off the beaten path.
