3 Down, Many More to Come

Three years ago today, the movers came and packed up our furniture and other "stuff." Then we drove our 5th wheel to Chatfield State Park. We have been living on the road, full-time in our RV, ever since. We love it. We have no plans to end this way of living any time soon.

Since that time, we have volunteered in Arizona, Colorado, Montana, and now Texas. We have traveled around the perimeter of the eastern two-thirds of the country and spent quality time exploring southern Arizona and New Mexico. It is a wonderful life.

We have learned the freedom of getting rid of our "stuff." Granted, it took two more summers to do that, but it really gives us a good feeling. We are happy in something just over 300 square feet of living space, as long as we have a new view out the front window every few days or months. After all, that is our living room most of the time.

New people, new places, new challenges and opportunities. This is the life we love in our retirement. Wave if you pass us on the road. Or send us an email when we are nearby and we will get together to talk about our life on the road.

Happy travels. Remember to keep the rubber side down.

By the way, this is the 500th post on this blog? Who would of thought I would write that many posts?


  1. As you said the best STUFF is actually not STUFF they are memories,adventures,feelings...
    If you want to do it and can afford it then do it.

  2. Hope you have many, many more days of full timing left, we can't wait to get started. I know there are plenty of trains out there that are just waiting to be photographed, along with countless other sights we wish to see. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna..

  3. Great to see you're still loving it! I'm counting down 61 days until my full-time adventure. I'm doing a bit of spring-cleaning to unload some weight and have decided I'll break down and buy a Nook when after I unload my precious books somewhere. Congrats on your 500th post!

  4. Congrats on your third anniversary! It is a wonderful life. 500 posts?!? I only have 364!
