Bob & Pat Wangen started their full time RV journey in June 2011. They sold their house in DeWitt, MI, sold or stored their “worldly possessions,” and took the big step. Pat wrapped up her business as a part-time consultant. Bob was the owner of Implement Improvement, LLC and continued his training business from the road. Bob fully retired in November 2014 when he finished the last of his contracts and didn’t seek to renew them
Pat is originally from Bad Axe in the “thumb” of Michigan. Pat began her career in banking with Manufacturers Bank in Detroit. She left banking to start their family and after the kids were on their own went back to work as an independent consultant.
Bob grew up in the Detroit suburb of Allen Park, and started with the YMCA in Warren, MI, then to the Red Cross, and then to the Michigan National Guard. Bob retired from the Guard in 1999 and started his training business.
They met while attending college at Central Michigan University and were married in 1973.
Bob and Pat have been camping for years and enjoy kayaking and snorkeling.
