An ex-tent camper, Florence Heckel Russell loves her home on wheels with its in-door plumbing. A former reporter and copywriter, Florence is the co-author (and better typist) of her father's (Harry Heckel, Jr.) travel memoir Around the World in 80 Years: The Oldest Man to Sail Alone Around the World--Twice!
Florence lives in Ohio with her old husband and even older cat.
To escape Cleveland’s winter, former reporter Florence Heckel Russell and her husband head South in their new RV. When they return after spending months together in a 23-by-8 foot space, they are, miraculously, still married. From Mammoth Cave to Carlsbad Caverns, the couple adjusts to close-quarter living as they stumble through adventures: fun, frustrating and at times downright scary.
