Sept. 11, 1989 was our transition date from our old hectic stress filled life in the rat race of Southern California. Bryce was a month shy of 49 and wanted to see the USA in our Chevrolet (Truck and 5th Wheel Trailer). Our plan was to travel for 2 years and then settle down in a small community of 10,000 somewhere in the west! We finally found our spot 30 miles East of Reno, NV in Wadsworth,NV We loved the FREEDOM and bljc4.filteredthe FLEXIBILITY to be able to go where we wanted to go, when we wanted to go, for as long as we wanted. Our only problem was just how to make enough money to sustain this lifestyle.Well we made it for 15 months before we ran out of money! We had no intention of settling down yet as we were having too much fun! What to do? Fortunately we had met some baby-boomer rvers the second month out. They were members of the ESCAPEES RV CLUB which is an outstanding organization that is a must for all RVers on the road. We soon met others that also were working on the road and quickly discovered a company called American Guide Services (AGS) which produces RV Resort Visitor Guides. These guides are handed out to each RV visitor that registers and are paid for by local advertisers that wish to promote their products or services to the RVers. Our job was to sell advertising space on these visitor guides and earn commissions from the sale of each ad.

 

MAC COMPUTERS… WE HAVE LOVED THEM SINCE 1985

1996…
Bryce Discovers the Internet (No he didn’t invent it!)

photo18-maccomputer2While still traveling the west and producing RV Resort Visitor Guides for AGS, a little item called the Internet was discovered in Jan 1996! Bryce has been in computers since the early days of computers (1959) working for Lockheed Calif Co in Burbank, CA as Computer Programmer, (no one ever heard of computer programmers until the late 60’s)! Finding out about the WEB, well that was it, he was never been the same since 1996. He spent over 3000 man hours developing WebWorker web site. WebWorker’s concept was to help everyone learn how to develope their own web site and promote it in such a manner as to create their own home-based business. WebWorker had literally thousands of web pages filled with FREE information to help anyone do what Bryce had done! Webworker operated until 2015 (19 years) at which time was sold to a fellow in England.This complicated our traveling flexibility. We had to plan ahead of time where we are going, order a local phone connection ahead of time, so that when we pulled in, Bryce could hook up and be online that same day. We also stayed 1 to 2 months at a time instead of 1 to 2 weeks like we did prior to the internet action.
