Retirement Life of

Ed & Edith Gray



My wife, Edith retired on 11/24/99 and I retired on 05/31/01. Edith owned and operated Edith's Cafe for many years. I retired with 36 years of public service of which the last 28 years was as a County Agricultural Extension Agent in McCook County employed by South Dakota State University. Prior to that I taught Vocational Agriculture for 5 years in Burke,SD and 1 year in Salem, SD and 2 years as a County Agent in Pennington county, SD.

We have been traveling a fair amount so we spend some time RVing and some time traveling over seas. The purpose of this web site is to provide those who are interested a way to be able to enjoy some of the experiences and pictures from our travels. When there are requests we will also provide information in regards to things we have learned while preparing for and during our travels in regards to using GPS, E-Mail and amateur radio on the road, battery power and others.
