Author name: Mimi Skinner

I am Mary Sant Skinner (Mary on paper, Mimi in person). I was born and raised in Ohio, lived in Germany, in the Northern Virginia area, and settled in Danville, IL. I am a retired RN who is a nurse educator. In my early adult years, I embraced the “back-to-land” movement of the 1970’s. I had no land other than a small back yard, but learned to garden, can, sew, and other pioneer skills. Now we call this prepping. My husband and I bought our first RV in 2015. I had camped years ago, but wanted the comfort of my own bed and bathroom. Last year we traded up for a large Class A motorhome for extended travel.
