WHO WE ARE
We are Laura and Paul Kjorlie. We started this business almost by "accident". Well, maybe that's not a great word for a business that has to do with vehicles and travel! Here's our story:
We are both 60 years young and have been married since September 2016. Paul and I met on Facebook (!) a few years before. Besides having a bunch of common "LIKES", we share a love of camping, nature and travel. We took our 20' Jayco Hawk camper trailer on our honeymoon to Door County and had a wonderful time exploring, eating and shopping...and eating some more!
As we approach our, well, Paul's, retirement (I have had the luxury of being self-employed, mostly working from home), we knew we wanted to get a motorhome and do more of what we love across the country. We could even work while we travel since a lot of our job projects can be done online.
On top of Gibraltar Rock in Lodi. We hiked to the top. It was quite a climb, but the views are magnificent!
Last summer, we found a motorhome that we fell in love with, our Jayco Granite Ridge (click here for rental info), and decided to buy it. Since we are not retired yet and the time we can travel is limited, we decided to rent it out so others could enjoy it, too. Our rental experience was fun and we met super nice people who took great care of our RV and enjoyed their trips. I particularly like being the "hostess with the mostess" making sure our renters feel cared for, as well.
Paul and I decided for Spring 2019, we would upgrade features on the camper trailer and rent it out in addition to our motorhome. Now we have a "fleet" to rent! We are also shopping for our next RV so we can accommodate more customers.
Meanwhile, Paul came across a 14 passenger mini-bus for sale (it was on his Facebook page! Isn't everything?). He had the brilliant idea of buying it so I could offer fun road trips around Wisconsin. I love to drive and find unique places. It was a natural fit for me!
I got this tattoo, my first, for my 60th
birthday. Notice the "Wanderlust"?
