Hanging Out and Packing Up
Well, it’s been great the past several days. No pressure, nothing that had to be done, nowhere that we had to be. Now, it’s time for a change. It’s time to roll. Tomorrow.
I’ve gone through my maintenance list and done what has to be done. Tires have been scrubbed and treated with 303. Tire pressure checked and found within acceptable limits. All water lines and plumbing has been checked for leaks and none found. Outside lockers cleaned and straightened up. Vents vacuumed in order to remove dust and dirt. Replaced the in house AC filter. When we get to Roswell I’ll clean the condensers – the special cleaner I need has been ordered and should be there and waiting for me. And the beat goes on. I’m back in the grove and doing what needs to be done each and every month.
I’ve also spent time on the computer planning the remainder of our 2020 trip, in particular our trip back to Florida. Yes, we’ve decided to come back home the end of next year. It’s amazing how many hours it takes to get a route together. Roads to consider, looking for state parks, free camping spots, what are the best possible private parks. It’s challenging but also a lot of fun. Sure, we could probably just wing it and hope for the best and in some cases we will. However, I’m not wired in such a way that I can just drive and hope for the best. Yes, I also know that the best laid plans of mice and men will probably change a hundred times in the ensuing weeks and months. But, I’ve got the basics down and that’s good enough for now.
OK, time to get packing. It’s high time we get back on the road. Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona are calling to us. So if you will excuse me.
That’s been our life the last several days on The Road of Retirement. We’ve slowed way down lately, sort of our way of reminding ourselves that the life we’re living is not a sprint but a marathon. There is no need to do it all or see it all in just a year or two. We’ll do some sightseeing tomorrow. The next day we’ll be hanging out at a winery. And we’ll take it from there. Life is good. Thank You good Lord.
Thanks again for coming along with us. We always enjoy your company and your comments. Catch you tomorrow.
These are the voyages of Graybeard and it’s two intrepid travelers. Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before
See you on down the road!
