On the road again...I'm gonna be back on the road again....

Tuesday, April 4, 2006

Well, the decision has been made and the house has been put on the market. Oh, what decision? The one to return to the full-time RV lifestyle. Now the fun begins....what stays, what gets packed away, what goes and what to buy.

Before making this decision I considered moving to a smaller house, either here locally or in another part of the country. I even went so far as to visit several areas - north Georgia and eastern Oklahoma/western Arkansas. While there were pluses, there were minuses as well.

The idea of full-timing had already been presented to me but I had several reasons that I felt it wouldn't work. Then when my youngest daughter brought up the idea of again, I had ready answers. But the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. I'm not getting any younger (no wisecracks, please), I love to travel (remember, I just spent 7 months on the road traveling 27k miles across the country by motorcycle, alone), and I hate yard work (and so does my aging body). I have already been a full-timer so I knew a lot about the lifestyle and realized that it would work for me. My only reservation is the DRIVING....I never did that before. There are lots of other things, such as hookups & dumping, that I've never done but they don't worry me.

So, this blog will chronicle my progression through this journey, moving from "stick" home to "rolling" home. Oh, whatever the new rig is, it already has a name - The Lily Pad.

Till next time - keep on rollin',
