Reflecting on Year Two

Hi all,
This will be the last post---from Mukwonago and end of year two for us as fulltime RVers. Time to hit the road and begin year three of this great adventure.
 Reflecting back on this past year we have had a blast. Visiting Arizona was definitely a high. We had many misconceptions of Arizona mostly thinking it was flat and desert. As we drove around we were constantly surprised of the mountain ranges in view. We also enjoyed seeing the different cactus. It may seem weird but when you are from Wisconsin they are fascinating.

 We don't have a bucket list but do make efforts to check out national parks and collect stamps for Wendy's passport book. We spent time in about 14 of them with the Grand Canyon and Arches leading the list.
 We had  good times at Roper Lake State Park and again at Custer State Park. We met some super nice people at both and believe that is the most rewarding part of this lifestyle.
 Wendy and I both began new hobbies and will continue to spend idle time with these.
 I will put together one more short post to recap the miles and cost of living on the road for those out there that may be thinking of doing this sort of thing.
 Busy getting in some last visits. Wendy had a fish fry get together with the old softball team. I took in the homecoming game with my brother. On Saturday we headed up to spend a couple days at Wendy's parents. About a 3 hour drive. Her mom had been very understanding of our need to be down here with my dad. We definitely will spend more time there next fall.
 On Sunday grandson Alex stopped by with his girlfriend Emily for a nice visit and a bit of Packer watching.

  1. I realized yesterday that October 1st passed me by without mentioning our 2 year anniversary of hitting the road too. Been a little busy :) There's so much to do and see out there, I can't imagine settling down yet. Good luck on your next adventures :)
