#113 Just Some Thoughts

First, thank you for all your well wishes on us getting back into our "at home" routine. It is like any other home that is having major repairs or remodeling. The mental relief of getting back in your own bed, eating in your own kitchen, & having all the rest of your own comforts of home at hand is worth more than money can buy.

We are now back at our friends home outside Indianapolis, but this time in our own beds in their backyard. We are here for 5 days including the Labor Day holiday instead of the 2 weeks we had originally planned. With no specific plans, except enjoying the company of friends, we are enjoying sleeping in most mornings. I hope to get a few minor projects finished while we are here but if not there is always the next time or the time after that. Family & friends come first.

When we leave here we will head back north to Goshen IN for the Escapade. This is a major RV rally sponsored by the Escapees RV organization. This particular rally is significant because they are celebrating the 50th Escapade. We look forward to meeting up with friends, both those we have & haven't met. Escapees(aka SKPs) are a close knit group that not only share a common lifestyle but a common goal of helping each other. SKPs are more like friends & family than an organization. We have been SKPs for some time but have not had the opportunity to meet with the group on this scale before. We have been told it is quite an experience & look forward to it.

Also, I want to add a thank you to those of you who are responding to my blog. I am happy to know that it is being enjoyed. To those of you who are "living vicariously" through the blog until it is your time, I would like to pass on a message of inspiration we saw on a roadside sign. It said,

"A dream without a plan is just a wish"

which I take as dreams can come true if you put the effort into it. We are living proof of that concept. Whether it is moving to the mountains, living on the beach, traveling the world, or adopting the RV lifestyle.....keep dreaming & keep working towards that dream & maybe we will cross paths somewhere down the road. Until then, from our home in Poland IN because....

Home is where we park it,
Frank & Mary

  1. LOL...thanks for the quote Frank. John and I definitely have RVing in our retirement plans and are eagerly awaiting that day. Of course, if this economy does not improve by that time, we may see you at the store greeting you as you pass by :0)

    We are definitely selling our pop-up here soon. John needs to take some pics and post it on probably Craigslist Dallas.

    In the meantime, I will take notes from your blog for our travels in 20+ years :0) Ugh...why so long..sigh...
