A New Beginning
Today is the day I have been working toward for a while now. I have made the decision to buy a travel trailer & go "on the road - again". Here's a little background info on me. I am a widow of 7 years. I have traveled (it seems like in a previous life) with my husband of 30+ years. We had a home in Florida & even though we did not full time, we did a lot of traveling & camping in 3 different 5ers. Each new one being bigger & having more slide outs, requiring a bigger / heavier tow truck. I loved & cherish those travels & times we spent together. Now after putting my life back together, going back to work for a few years, and reconnecting with family - it's time to simplify & spend some time doing what I love (traveling). Hence, this blog to keep me connected to family & friends & hopefully make new contacts along the way. I have spent many hours researching the full time lifestyle & reading blogs. Rvsue, Bayfield Bunch, Sassy'sondaroad, Me & my Dog, Mr. Nimbles, Chuck & Gerri just to name a few. They have been an inspiration & a wealth of information. As I continue to down size & rid myself of the accumulation of "possessions" I have gathered, I feel lighter with each passing day. I did this 15 + years ago when my husband & I moved from PA where we had lived our entire lives to Florida - here I go again. How do we fall into the trap of collecting all this stuff?? I will greatly appreciate any help, suggestions, input from those who have traveled before me. I hope you will follow along & I can meet you down the highway.
