First time out this season: pic for proof

Here we are all De-Ployed and sticking out everywhere.

We did have a good time in spite of the miserable weather. I took this shot early Sunday morning in the first sunshine we saw the entire trip. It was cold. I had the Propane tank filled up when we arrived and we used the furnace Saturday night and Sunday.

No problems; nothing discovered that needed attention. Though that won't keep me from fiddling around with stuff.

We have a 4 day weekend coming up over the Memorial Day Holiday, a week long trip to Eastern PA in June or July, and some additional 3 day weekends to keep us active in the coach.

Once I am free of the obligation to work for a living, (August) we hope to use the coach even more.

Lol...here in Florida were wrapping up our camping season. We have one trip left at the end of the month to Salt Springs (Ocala), then nothing until the first of September.

As much as I love the spring waters and snorkeling here, it's just to hot for us to sit around a camp ground.

Sept to May......those nine months are good camping for us!

Looks great and glad your spring adventure posed no problems. Speaking from experience retirement will end schedules and timetables and make being on the road so much more enjoyable.

That's why we spend summers in Michigan and traveling in the coach to wherever and the other 6 months in Trinity, Florida.

I'm starting to sense that and can't wait. Now, and for the last 20 years, I've been in a hurry. Drive fast, rush here and there, even chores like grocery shopping, mowing, wash, are all done by multitasking with a sense of urgency.

With retirement two months off I am beginning to feel myself lift off the throttle a bit. Feels good.

Thanks for the confirmation.

we ran like that for 20+ yrs. i'm 43 now and 2 yrs ago we decided to slow down and enjoy the ride. i decided that travelling around and taking my time was a good way to get to know my wife again. kids are just about on their own, so why not "date" my wife again. it's been fun! i just get tired of the rat race so i agree with you! it's a good feeling not to burn the candle at both ends! congrats!
