About us

Welcome to Roadtirement

We are Maj and Sher, a couple of mature (we don’t like the tag “old”) folks who were born and raised in Indiana. Sher managed a photography studio and then, after we were married, raised our five kids. Maj has done many things including cattle ranching, professional public speaking and owning an engineering consulting company. We both are freelance writers, love photography, RV  travel, buying and selling antiques, and adventures.

Our set up at the recent Highway 40 Yard Sale, one of the things we did post vaccination

It is now late June, 2021, and we are beginning to “come out of the pandemic conditions” here in Central Indiana. After being isolated for over a year, we are both fully vaccinated as of the end of March. We have begun to get out of the house and make a few trips. We did set up our wares at the Highway 40 Yard Sale, and had a fairly successful event. We’ve been to some wineries and dined inside some restaurants.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We still carry our masks with us, as in some places we feel better (safer) wearing the face masks. For example, the other day I had an appointment at the dentist, and Sher and I both wore masks as everyone else was. Many businesses now have signage stating if vaccinated, no mask required, if not, masks recommended. The pandemic is still not over, so we are still being cautious. You should do the same.

Sher and I both invite you to check out our blog posts to see in detail what we are up to. As the covid situation in different areas improves, we’ll be probably be increasing our travels.

  2. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  4. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long
    as I provide credit and sources back to your site? My website is in the exact same
    area of interest as yours and my visitors would truly benefit from a lot of the information you
    present here. Please let me know if this okay with you.
    Thanks!

  5. Just passed you on the road in West Virginia heading towards White Sulphur Springs! What a fun way to spend your retirement and fly the coop yourselves! Happy travels.

  6. Salut you two! I noticed you have flattered me by following my blog. I promise I will try not to disappoint. Now. Here’s the thing. I don’t routinely follow blogs back but I took a little shimmy round yours and I am definitely up for riding along with you too. I really am delighted to ‘meet’ you. At this point in time, we sign off with ‘stay safe, stay well’. I tend to say ‘stay sensible’ because I think if we exercise common sense we have some hope of staying out of harms way. Of course The Whitehouse knows nothing of common sense nor even uncommon sense but that really is another story! Welcome to my Half-Baked World X

  7. What is this ‘old’ of which people speak?! I don’t like it, either! 😀 Thank you so much for the follow and for your comment. Of course, mine refuse to comply now so I cannot respond on my site, but I did want to thank you. Stay safe. Our stay-at-home here in sunny FL is due to expire on April 30. What happens then? Not sure, but I can tell you I will not be venturing out too far. I’m mature, too! 😉

    • I have seen others sharing the WP glitch that is refusing comment display or notification. Our state (Indiana) has also extended the shutdown until May 1. Like, you, Sher and I are going to play it safe for who knows how long. Until they have a reliable treatment or a vaccine…..

  9. Thanks so much for following our blog. It’s great to have you traveling virtually with us — even though we’re not doing so much right now. We do seem to have a lot in common with the two of you — love of people, travel, adventures, and even some spur-of-the-moment things! Life is good, but short. So here’s hoping you’re enjoying every day.

  10. Thank you for visiting my site Retreading for Retirement. I’m happy to discover your blog. Unfortunately, I don’t find the usual “follow site” button on most WordPress blogs. I’d follow if I could. Have you thought of adding a follow button? I love your photos and travel info.

    • On my page (in Melbourne, Australia) there is a Follow button on the bottom right-hand side of the screen automatically, but I’m not sure how it works as I get all my blogging friend’s new posts via ’email notifications” and the rare times I cross to the WordPress ‘Reader’ (which I don’t use due to eyesight & dizziness when scrolling issues), I notice that I am still not getting all my newly followed blogs as ’email notifications’.

      I can’t see a FOLLOW button inserted as a widget on the right-hand column of Maj and Sher’s WordPress site which is where I’ve got my own FOLLOW button as a widget.

      Maj & Sher seem to have ‘Archives’ and ‘Categories’ and ‘Where we have been’ as widgets though.

      I’ve found many WordPress Themes act in different ways AND I still use the old Classic Editor which has an impact on what appears on the page also.

      Hope you’re all back safe and back to the new COVID normal after the vaccines are rolled out. So sad to read of all the deaths in the U.S. (and the COVID cases in the U.S., U.K., Brazil etc are mind-boggling).

  11. Hard to imagine what this pandemic might have done to your foot loose plans, but maybe it’ll ease up before long. Given this crazy weather it must be good to not be “on the road” (I would imagine.) Thanks for the visit and I enjoyed taking a peek at what you’re up to!

  12. Welcome to my blog! Here you my find in excess of 8000 pictures form Norwegian nature and quite a few macro exposures – nearly all in ‘fullscreen mode’. Please enjoy!
    As for the Covid-19 we are not quite unfamiliar with the problem. I don’t think any country is by now?
    Unfortunately virus do not die! They survive by mutating – constantly! Virus colonies have been found in glaciers around the world dating more than 10 000 years back in time! The key word seems to be
    ‘adaptation’ (the best you can). And even if your former president promised that it one morning it would have disappeared like in a miracle, I’m sorry to tell you that he was dead wrong!
    I think we will have this Covid-19 virus among us for the nest 10-15 years – at least! But slowly getting
    better and more effective vaccines, it won’t be bothering quite as much as before. But it will take time!
    Please forget the ‘1 meter distance’! It won’t work! It is much more about ‘time’! The time you spend in the same room as one infected person! That is why everybody on the ss. ‘Diamond Pricess’ got infected. (Through the aircondition connecting all cabins). As long as one allow for a public on outdoor concerts, football matches, Olypics and such, the virus will spread! Keep safe!
    Think of the virus like cigarette smoke hanging in the air in a pub/restaurant/waiting room/terminal
    or whatever. When you smell the hamurger from a table in the other end of the room, that is why
    air molecules from that hamburger has reached you nostrils, but – you will not be able to smell the
    Covid-19! However, that does not mean that it isn’t there!

  14. Thank you so much for dropping by and following World Wide Walkies. I am delighted that you have introduced me to your wonderful blog. I love your title, ‘Roadtirement’! and it’s so great to find like-minded souls doing much the same as us on the other side of ‘the pond’.
    After lockdown in the UK, we are back on wheels this week (HURRAH!) Our new home, a 6-wheel truck, was intended to take us to Mongolia, but our first destination is Oxford because no-one wants the Brits across their borders – and we’re double jabbed too!
    Never mind. A 24-tonne ex-army truck is the perfect vehicle to keep us out of trouble among the barmy bicycles and insane electric scooters that terrorise the byways in the City of Dreaming Spires!

      • You’re welcome – I am so looking forward to following your adventures.
        It depends who you talk to about Boris. No matter what he does, some people seem to think he is amazing. We are an island and have one of the highest Covid death rates in the world, yet still people say, ‘What more could he have done?’ My answer is ‘Quite a lot, really!’ 🙂 I think history will judge him but unfortunately, we have to put up with him for the moment!
        Thank you for dropping by. There will be more about The Beast coming up soon – we move in tomorrow, but I am still catching up on our tour from last summer.
