We have always considered ourselves sojourners. Webster defines the word as “one who travels from place to place, staying only for a short time.” That definition fits us to a T, for as full-time RVers who serve as volunteers at state parks and national wildlife refuges, we never stay in one place for more than a few months. We started our volunteer lifestyle in mid-2000 and we have served at several parks and refuges throughout the U.S. The following articles are based on our adventures.
