“Don’t stop just because you’re getting older. There’s lots of places to go, lots of places to see, lots of places to experience.” Those are the words of 100-year-old James Ziegler who is still hitting the road in his RV at the age of 100.

He has drive his RV as far as the tip of South America. And he’s climbed the Great Wall of China – three times. In fact, he was traveling long before he began his RVing lifestyle.

While his family does keep tabs on him, and his son has started to accompany him on some of his trips, James is still living his 100 Year Lifestyle. He walks one-half mile every day. He doesn’t smoke or drink. And he still enjoys the freedom of his RV lifestyle.
