Well it’s happening. Hubby has actually started to tell people what our retirement plans are. For the last few months he has let me do the explaining about our dream to become fulltimers and it made me a bit crazy. It was like “hello, I’m putting myself out here and they are looking at me like I’m nuts and giving me that we’ll just smile and pretend we understand look… and your not saying nothing is making me look like it’s all my idea and your just hearing about this for the first time also” lol….So it was a pretty big deal when he told me about telling the guys he works with that as soon as this contract is up he is retiring AND yes, we have plans to sell everything and travel in a motorhome. Their response was pretty upbeat and they thought it was great so I’m glad that went well for him.
We have our reservations in to attend a Rv-Dreams rally in the Smoky Mountains for this October. This rally is a 4 day event covering many aspects of fulltime rving. We are looking forward to spending about 10 days traveling and camping in the Smokies, which at that time of year should be beautiful.
Temps are warming up here slowly and I’m thinking maybe two weeks from now we will be uncovering the travel trailer. Time to start planning for the first weekend camping trip of 2013. I love “opening day” and it is always fun to get the trailer opened up and ready to go. I’m sure this year our Sunday rides back home from the campgrounds will include one of us saying “won’t be long until we don’t have to pack up and leave until we feel like it”, yeah, that’s gonna be sweet!
