Temperature 70 Degrees, Overcast

Moochdocking at the home of Steve and Patti

Getting caught up.

Yesterday was our travel day. I know, you’re not supposed to travel on July 1st because of the heavy traffic. I guess we lucked out because we had none. Correction, we stayed in the right lane at 63 mph and the rest of the world went flying by us! Fine by me.

All in all it was an easy trip. However, Wisconsin really needs to do something about the condition of their roads. My oh my some of them are absolutely horrible. At times we just had to slow down and cross our fingers that we didn’t leave any parts behind.

Here we are at our new home until July 5th. We’re at our good friends Steve and Patti. We’re parked next to their brand new 40ft 5th wheel. Hard to believe but both rigs are 40 ft in length yet ours looks so small. I asked him what the clearance is on his rig, can you believe 13 feet, 5 inches! I’m sure they’ll be a few places that they’re not going to be able to go to. We have FHU so we’re living in the lap of luxury. Why, even with all the trees on his property we were able after a few tries to get Albert set up so that he could find all 3 satellites. Yipee!

Steve and Patti have been so very gracious. We have been treated like royalty from the time we arrived. Last night we had supper together and spent hours catching up and telling RV’ing tales a-plenty. They are truly two of God’s beautiful people and we count ourselves blessed that they are our friends.

So that is where we are at on the Road of Retirement. We are getting ready to turn the corner toward home. At this point in time we’ve been in 13 different states, stayed in 23 different RV parks, and covered 4,712 miles. We have about 2,000 or so miles to go before we are back home in Florida. Sounds so funny in a way to say, home. This is the first time in 4 years we’ve had a fixed base to return to. Home, yup we have a home we’re looking forward to returning to in a couple of months.

Thanks again for spending some time with us.  It’s always great to be able to share our story with family and friends. Comments? Feel free to share them with me. And always remember, cherish every moment of every day that God gives you and live those moments to the fullest.

Our continuing mission remains the same: 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.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful time with friends! And yes, their fifth wheel does look much larger! How nice that you have a FHU at their home? Enjoy your visit, and safe travels!


    1. And oh what a 5th wheel it is. It has the living room in the front, then the kitchen, then the bedroom, then a huge bathroom all the way in the rear across the whole trailer. Since arriving we have been having a wonderful time.
