We are finally on our big adventure, living for the next six months in our motor home. Final preparations went fairly smoothly – we didn’t kill one another! (ha ha) Actually, we got along very well, went through our checklist and were actually on the road about fifteen minutes after we intended. And don’t you know, about five miles from the house, I realized that I had forgotten all my sun visors. Isn’t that why God invented Walmart?

Several neighbors came out to wish us well. We live in the Great Outdoors, an RV and golf resort in Titusville, FL. There are about 1,200 homesites, some just RV pads while others have ports and mini-suites. On the other side of the spectrum, there are large mansion-type houses, with big garages or two-story ports for RV’s. We have a small two-story golf-villa type house, our perfect retirement abode! When we come home in December, we’ll enjoy the amenities of our community. But for now, it’s high living in our home-on-wheels, seeing this beautiful country of ours!

The dogs are in their travel places; Snickerdoodle on Dave’s lap and Pooh Bear up on the dashboard, snuggling with a couple of stuffed animals. We should be in Kings Bay, GA by one o’clock. And wasn’t that nice for gas to come down? If you are unfamiliar with RV’s, we get about 7 miles to the gallon. It cost nearly $4, just to get out to the highway! RV-ing isn’t necessarily about economy as much as it is a lifestyle.

We sit up much higher than in a car, so I get to see stuff that I would miss, had we just been tooling up the highway in my little sports car. It’s an overcast day; good thing since I left all those visors at home! For now, I’m just going to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. I’ll probably have more stuff to talk about later
