Meal Planning & Storage

One thing that has had to change a little bit since we began full-timing was the way that we grocery shop.  Obviously I don’t have the refrigerator, freezer or cupboard space that we did before full-timing.  We used to have a full size refrigerator & freezer plus a small chest freezer along with a pantry. … Continue reading »

Moving Day – Calera, Alabama to Montgomery, Alabama

We are back at home-base Montgomery!  We left the Calera Camping World at about 1:15 and were parked, hooked up and everything in it’s place 2 hours later.  We’re getting pretty good at setting back up – takes less than 30 minutes! Michael checked today and we still have NO water in the basement!  Please … Continue reading »

Just Another Day In Calera

We had planned to be back in Montgomery this evening but plans changed.  It has been so windy here in Calera today that we decided to stay put and not deal with tearing down, driving and then setting back up.  It’s also pretty darn chilly with only a high in the low 40s today and … Continue reading »

A Day of You & Me

On Friday we were up about 7:30 so that we could get dressed, get our breakfast ready and get the water & electric unhooked before the mechanic came to pick up the coach and take her over to the shop to fix her up.  While we waited we met a gentleman that was parking a … Continue reading »

Internet Connectivity

As I mentioned in an earlier post, the RV Park that we are currently staying at includes internet access in it’s rate.  However, you are extremely lucky if you are able to connect. After our first week or so here we gave up and invested in a Verizon internet card (Pantech 4G LTE USB Modem … Continue reading »

MRI, Lunch & The River

Another gorgeous day in Alabama – 62 and sunny currently.  I decided to take advantage and moved out to the patio.  I have the patio TV playing as I make this entry.  It’s just seems so much more peaceful out here than in the house. I don’t have a whole lot to ‘report’ today but … Continue reading »

Television Junkies…Perhaps?

One of the things we HAD to consider about our full-time adventure was how were we going to be able to watch TV.  Yes, I said ‘HAD’.  I admit…we are TV junkies (Michael probably won’t admit it).  We have several shows that we enjoy (Revenge, Greys, Castle, Person of Interest, Gene Simmons Family Jewels, Storage … Continue reading »

Budget Cuts

When Michael & I moved to Montgomery, Alabama in September of 2009 I looked for work (I had been working at the Lands End corporate offices for 8.5 years when he got orders to move) but there was nothing to be found.  The longer I went without work the more we started to think that … Continue reading »
