Hey y’all! Welcome to Vintage Chases. We are Jim and Kim Chase – over fifty and fabulous, living and traveling full-time in our RV.
Here’s a little background:
We lived in the Dallas area for 27 years, Jim as an Electrical Engineer; Kim as a piano accompanist, and we thought we would always live there. In 2014, fate threw us a curve ball when Jim received an offer for a job in California. Now, one thing you need to know about us is that we are big wine lovers. I wouldn’t call us connoisseurs, but we do love everything about it from vine to glass (Jim calls us “advanced amateurs”). So…why not move to California? We have been taking trips to buy wine there at least once a year for several years, so why not live there? We looked at it as an adventure.
After two and a half years, though, the Bay Area and all it’s high tech, frenzied, mega stressed atmosphere kind of did us in. So we sold everything, bought a big ol’ truck with a fifth wheel trailer, and hit the road!
We began our travels in February of 2017 and it has been a blast so far. Everyone kept telling us, “you should start a blog” – so here it is! Vintage Chases will help us keep our family and friends up-to-date on all of the sites and experiences we are having along the way. We will talk a little bit about traveling in this great country of ours, a little bit about what life is like on the road, and of course, a little bit about our shared passion – wine (with a little food and technology thrown in, too).
