A Day Off…But No Rest

Michael was given today off because he worked on Saturday and put in extra hours last week.  Unfortunately, it wasn’t a day ‘off’ as he had three appointments scheduled and we had a few errands to complete. We had breakfast before we headed off for his first appointment at the Maxwell clinic with his primary … Continue reading »

Leisurely Sunday

We had a nice leisurely morning…checking email, Facebook, blogs, forums (of course) had breakfast about 8:30 and watched a few movies (Cop Out & Hereafter) In the afternoon we went into Wetumpka (about 5 miles north of the RV park) and grabbed a salad and shared a Black Forest ham & cheese sandwich at Pizza … Continue reading »

Making Plans

Our Saturday was WAY too short as Michael worked until about 2:00 pm due to the YTB (Yearly Training Briefing).  When he got home we both did some reading on another Full-Time RV Blog (RV-Dreams) that we recently started following.  This couple has been Full-Timing since the fall of 2005.  It’s nice to see that … Continue reading »

Dreary Weather Means Movies & Veggie Soup

Thundery-stormy here this morning.  Dropped from 71 degrees to 55 VERY quickly.  I think that the majority of it was over by noon…but I have to admit I am a bit uncomfortable when the coach sways with the wind.  I’m not much for storms to begin with…the loud thunder booms tend to make me jump … Continue reading »

Never Let Anyone or Anything Break Your Routine

I have alluded to this story here & here.   Read on… We tend to have a certain routine when it comes to packing up and leaving wherever we happen to be.  I usually take care of things on the inside of the coach while Michael works outside.  Then when it is time to hook … Continue reading »

Bad Back, Back Splash & Old Photos

I missed a few days of blogging and now I need to play catch up! Michael has back problems and Sunday things flared up so he rested for most of the day trying not to aggravate it any more.  He has an appointment to see the chiropractor and his provider at the Maxwell clinic on … Continue reading »

Movies, Mexican & Crafts

The second day of Michael’s 4-day weekend started out fairly early.  We were up about 7 am, Michael showered and we both did the usual checking of Facebook, email, and the Heartland Owners Forum before I cooked breakfast.   Thankfully, I am feeling much better today than I did yesterday – still not 100% but … Continue reading »

Errands, Errands & More Errands!

Michael has a 4-day weekend due to President’s Day so we’ve had a busy couple of days trying to get things accomplished that have been on our ‘to do’ list for some time. Friday started out with both of us relaxing for a few hours before we headed out to do some errands.  First stop … Continue reading »

Fuel/Tool Box Addition

It can be tough to find a gas station that sells diesel fuel and is large enough (the coach is 41 ft long and needs a clearance of at least 14 feet) for us to enter safely. Our best bet is to find Flying Js or Pilots as they have plenty of room, food and we can … Continue reading »

Fireplace – Should You or Shouldn’t You?

Ten + years ago when we really started looking at 5th wheels with the intent of figuring out exactly what we wanted in a coach for when Michael’s retirement arrived we thought it was totally ludicrous to have a fireplace in a ‘camper’.  Then one day we were at an RV show and made that remark … Continue reading »
