It is getting really close to the big day. The day we are actually real fulltime campers. The house sold July 2 and we have been living in our RV since. Some may say we are already there, but with still working and in the area it has not felt like a change.
Today I said we had to do something in the house and my future sister in law laughed. Well it is our house now.
Wendy says she has no problem saying we are going home - wherever the camper is.
Retirement date for me (Ray) is Sept. 30. After 37 years of working there it will be tough thinking I won't be going back to work (there anyway).
A reader had asked if it was scary to leave the house for only a RV. To us it did not seem so. We had been planning on doing this for so long and the actions required doing this consume your time and thoughts. A person can always go back to the stix and brix if it doesn't work out. We thought if that happened we would not want a big place with all the upkeep required.
I sometimes wonder what Wendy and I will talk about after we're out there.
The hardest time for me will be leaving loved ones that we are used to seeing regularly. Still wish we would of done a lot more things with the kids and grandsons this past summer.
We plan to head out mid Oct. It seems like we are always waiting and planning for the next step.
I believe what they say about it not the destination but the journey getting there is life.
