#112 Getting Back to Normal

Aaaahh, back in our own bed. The rig is all together again & we are just about ready to hit the road. We will stay here 2 nights just to make sure there are no surprises & the work is complete to our satisfaction. Something always needs to be done, a nail here or a piece of trim there, but it is best to find it before we leave. Being a thousand miles down the road won't help us get it fixed. If all goes well we will be on the road Saturday morning & will spend the holiday weekend with friends.

Today we spent the day putting everything back in order in the rig. It gave us an opportunity to go through our "stuff" & get rid of more things we didn't need. The weather has turned around quite a bit. The temps are no longer around 90. It is now in the 70's during the day & upper 50's at night. The wind has picked up also. It's not hurricane Earl but 25-35 mph is more than enough to shake the rig. Tomorrow we will get up early, load the bikes, dump the tanks, & will be on the road. We can't wait.

It's hard to believe that we have been on the road for 5 months & that we will be back in FL in just over 2 months. It has been a blast & we are positive that we made the right lifestyle choice for us. We miss our kids & grandkids so are looking forward to getting back to FL, but this time as full fledged Snowbirds.

So tonight we say good night back in our home in Elkhart because....

Home is where we park it,
Frank & Mary


  1. One word for the two of you getting back into your home 'YAY'!!!

  2. Glad you hear you are "home" finally :0) I am so longing for that kind of lifestyle in about 20 years :0) the meantime, I will just live my dream by reading your blog :0)


  3. I really enjoy your adventures. I envy you three (gotta include Foxy). The Dell seems like a great place to visit, but I might like to go earlier in the year. It sounds really cold there and I have become allergic to cold. Can't wait to see the blog after you do the beet thing.

  4. sorry, forgot to add my name to the previous anonymous comment. It's Alice Love you guys.
