George Mason and Salli Slaughter

George Mason and Salli Slaughter were originally planning to visit Patagonia for only two weeks, but have been “caught in the Patagonia vortex” and have extended their stay.

When George Mason and Salli Slaughter’s younger daughter graduated from college last year, the couple decided it was time for them to set out on an adventure.

“We wanted to do something significant that we could afford to do on our Social security,” Mason said. His first idea, that they walk across the United States, was met with limited enthusiasm by Slaughter, so they settled on a plan to leave their home in Portland, Ore., buy an RV and travel the country in search of authors.
