About Us

We're Jack and Trisha Senterfitt, aka Santa and Mrs. Claus, and on March of 2013 we  embarked on a great adventure!  While I retired in 2007 after a career as an attorney, Trisha just retired at the end of March.  She's a Presbyterian minister who, after 14 years in parish ministry in Atlanta, became the Director of The Craddock Center in Cherry Log, Georgia--an outreach ministry to low income families, primarily focusing on children's enrichment in north Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina.  She loved doing this, but decided last year to retire, so we could travel, spend time seeing this great country and visiting friends everywhere.  So in August of 2012 we found a 2008 Winnebago View in mint condition close to our home and this was the trigger for her to go ahead and retire.
We had once had a ski boat our kids named Happy Times, so we named our RV HappyX2, for the second incarnation of Happy Times, and for all the happy times the two of us will have travelling!  We loaded up and left the Thursday before Easter and our only deadline for returning home is to be back by Nov. 1 for the beginning of Santa season!  So this blog will chronicle our journey, both the physical travels and the more expansive journey into the next phase of our lives.  We invite you to follow along as we're on the road!


  1. Hey, Jack, we've (the Gilmer County Library) been trying to reach you regarding the Festival of Trees. If possible, could you please give us a call. Thanks! :)

    btw, what a great trip this all sounds like...looks like y'all had a great time

  2. Greetings. I work with United Methodist News and we are doing a story about the Cathedral of the Rockies United Methodist Church's plan to remove the stained glass window featuring Robert E. Lee and others. I found your image of the window and would like to request permission to use it with our story. We will credit you as the photographer and can send the link to the story when it is published. Thank you very much -- I may be reached at lglass@umnews.org - thank you!
