Non-RV Travel

Non-RV Travel

We went on a non-RV trip this week. We traveled to Las Vegas as my wife attended a work related conference. It was a good and safe trip. It also reinforced to us that our preferred method of travel is via RV. As long as your obey the traffic laws, there are really no security […]

Initial Motorhome Mods and Other Projects

It has been a busy week. Lots of fun, and exciting Motorhome tasks – some of which (most of which) are a lot of hard work as well. One item that we have been doing throughout the week is learning. Even though we had a 5th wheel before, this new RV is much more advanced […]

It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here!

It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here!!

We picked up the motorhome yesterday. It looks really great. We are very pleased. The pickup process was good. I asked that they clean some more salt from the trip down from the rig – including the roof. They were happy to oblige. It fit well into our port house. Neighbors helped us get it […]

Sunrise!

Sunrise!

What is your favorite time of day?? For me it is Sunrise. I have been an early riser for the majority of my adult life. I enjoy the quiet, alone time before anyone else is up. Just me, a cup of coffee, and my thoughts (and sometimes YouTube RV Videos 🙂 ). What is it […]

Health, family needs, lack of desire, financials and lots of additional factors are all condersiderations to move on to the “next phase” of your life. An […]

The Motorhome has arrived in Florida

We got to see our motorhome for the first time yesterday. Yay!! But due to schedules, we will not bring it home for another week+. The dealership needs to get it cleaned up, a few things repaired, and ready for our walk-through orientation. I received a jury duty summons for next week, and my wife […]

Motorhome Driving Class

Motorhome Driving Class

While we continue to wait on our motorhome to arrive at the dealer, we decided to go and take a motorhome driving class. I had only driven a motorhome briefly during a test drive. My wife had never driven one at all – and I never convinced her to drive the truck (while pulling the […]

Last Day of Employment – Retirement?

Last Day of Employment – Retirement?

Today marks my last day of official employment. It is a bit of a shock to the system – as I have answered the “bell” almost every morning for decades. Is this retirement? I am not old enough to start drawing a pension, or social security. I just plan to not work for a while […]
