About Pauline

Guten Tag! (About the only German I remember...grin) I'm Pauline. Spent the first 16yrs of my life as an Army brat. Born in WEST Germany (for those who remember those days) and traveled more then most kids. Grew up in West Germany, Maryland, Alaska and the rest in Indiana where I meet ToRn while I was attending Purdue. BOILER UP!! We wanted out of Indiana, just didn't know the wheres and hows. In '04 we headed to Florida. Discovered that we love visiting......grin...but it wasn't for us. In '07 we headed to Oregon were we are happy to claim as our home state. I'm into history and biographies, a totally Harry Potter addict.....always have to listen to the audio books before bed. And lately I've gotten addicted to Agatha Christie books with Hercule Poirot.....no idea why, they are so dated and so stereotypical...but there you have it, another addiction. Totally love the LOTR movies (extended versions) and reread the books several times. Now if I can find unabridged audio books of them, I'd be set. We like to travel, we like to hike and we like to camp, but we like having our own bed and miss our cats. So as of Feb 2013 (date to be decided) we'll becoming full time RVers! We are so looking forward to it and so nervous as heck. There is so much to learn and so much of our life will be changing. Lets see where the road takes us. ~Peace
