New Beginnings!

After waiting 30 years for the big “Retirement” it has finally happened! We are FreeFree, Free, to head out when and where we want!! The coach is getting packed and repacked! We keep running thru the house and stacking up more and more to take in our 400 sq ft and of course we probably won’t even need or use half of it.

Our house is still on the market for sale, sure hope it sells this spring or sooner, we will come back and check on it twice a year, June for Doctors and Dentist appointments, also to spend Christmas with the kids and grands.

We have been going through the downsizing process but, wow, is it hard to decided what we may need someday when we move back into the s&b. At first we thought we would just get rid of it all but there are so many non replaceable memories we find hard to part with. So it looks like we will have that preverbal storage unit. The kids have come and pout their names on what they would like, my sister Penny wants to come and get her pick in first!!

The beginning of our trip will be attending an Escapees Rally in Tuscon Az, visiting friends in El Paso and Round Rock, TX,  heading back to Gulf Shores to attend a rally with our FMCA camping group, Tampa for rv repairs, St. Augustine, Fl to see good friends, St. James, NC to visit my cousin and her husband, heading to Cape Hatteras, NC,  meeting up with friends we met at a RV Dreams rally in Sevieville, NC,  ending the trip in Marion, NC meeting with RV Dreams for a reunion rally.

This blog will be our way of keeping in touch and sharing our journey with friends and family along our way through this wonderful country.

  5. Oh my gosh, this is wonderful. Leave it to you to figure it out, the “enormity” of your project. My first wish is for always feeling your best, staying safe and enjoying every minute. My next one would be sitting with you in North Carolina, petting Laci of course. “Hail to the Queen”
