Britain... Unleashed

Do you wish you could travel the world for a while?

Do you have a passion for all things British and want to learn more?

Would you love to bring your dog with you on your dream road trip?

 

Escape today's bad news, sad news, doom and gloom... wander with my dogs and me and we'll show you Great Britain from a cheeky point of view!

I'd been an airline pilot in the USA for 10 years when I took a chance, chased my dream, and crossed the pond to work as a flight instructor near London.

 

And then the economy tanked. Belly flopped. Crashed and burned.

I found myself out of a job, living in the house I'd just bought but couldn't afford anymore, with my two German Shepherds who'd just arrived from America.

 

Great. Now what was I supposed to do?

 

I know what—I'll buy a caravan and hit the road! Except my little Vauxhall Astra couldn't tow a pony cart, let alone a caravan.

Gina's blue Vauxhall Astra. My little Vauxhall. A great runabout, but not such a great tow car.

Terrific. Now I have to get a tow car as well. Let's see... what's big enough for the dogs and also has enough get up and go for towing?

 

I know what—I'll buy a Jeep. Perfect for the job, right? (Not so much.)

 

And so I schlepped from London to Leeds on the train to check out a used car... and I struggled home in The Jeep of Death. What could possibly go wrong?

 

Yeah, well, pretty much everything. The first six weeks of what turned into three years on the road were a serious shakedown cruise, and the first book of the Britain Unleashed series is about our adventures as we got the hang of caravan life.

 

We'd love to have you come along for the ride as we travel from London to the northern tip of Britain (hint: Muckle Flugga) while we learn caravanning on the fly, deal with the Jeep's many problems (I couldn't make this stuff up), and take my two rescued shelter dogs to places we'd never have dreamed they'd get to go.

 

And when you're ready to unleash your own independence—whether it's because you're on your own or because you need to develop a bit more confidence in your career or your relationships—join me in The Independence Unleashed Masterclass™ when it opens, and let me be your guide as you walk a new path on your way to a bold, courageous, independent way of life.

 

Keep calm and travel on,

Gina, Jerry Lee, and Holly

I'm also happy to give you three free gifts: two booklets of the 19 top tips I learned (usually the hard way) while caravanning solo with big dogs in the UK... and one bonus gift.
