Roy Graham and Betty Caldwell are ditching their Calgary home to embark on a cross-Canada tour in an RV.
The couple said they were inspired by YouTube videos posted by other people who had given up living in a house for life on the open road.
When Caldwell’s business began to struggle in the midst of Alberta’s economic slump, they decided to give it a shot.
“We lived in sticks and bricks for all our lives,” Graham explained. “We thought it would be a really neat endeavour to actually downsize and see what that’s like.”
“We want to see the sights, we want to meet all the people in Canada, and expand ourselves as people.”
“We get so tied down in everything [that] we forget to live life,” Caldwell added.
