Temperature 89 Degrees, Overcast
Home Safe and Sound, Waiting For Our Newest, Nastiest Child – Ian
Yesterday was maintenance time for Elvira. It was time to have all the fluids and filters changed on both the engine and the generator. A close inspection of the engine revealed only one minor problem that we might or might not have fixed before we leave next year. It has to do with the Dash A/C so it is not really critical since we can run the rooftop air while we’re driving.
Service finished it was time to make the decision. Do we turn and flee north? Or do we go south and go home? If we had been full-timing the decision would have been an easy one, turn and flee north. But we both decided we wanted to be home to take case of the house in case something happened to it as a result of the impending hurricane. So south we went and home we are.
I mean what a nice site we have. A full concrete pad that is dead level with full hookups. Not to mention that we have a roof over Elvira that will keep her out of all the rain and wind. And right next door is our deluxe suite that offers all the best in living. What more could one ask for.
So now we wait for our newest and nastiest child -Ian. As of now it is looking like the eye will pass over us sometime either Wednesday or Thursday. The last time this development took a direct hit I’m told there was some streets flooded, some trees down but not much else. No homes were flooded and no homes sustained any major damage. We’re hoping for the same this time. Time will tell. Prayers appreciated.
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.

Glad you are home safe and sound. And yes, prayers have already been said for you and Barb. I was glad to read this post, and I’ve been checking the million predictions of where Ian is headed. Now is the time to enjoy that beautiful spot you managed to luckily get and… to play some Rummikub! Good luck on all fronts!
Prayers needed, Wednesday morning and things are going downhill fast.
Praying now. 🙏
Prayers for all in Florida.
Much needed, Wednesday morning and things are going downhill fast.
Glad you are home safe and we will look forward to a post-Ian update. We will have you and others in our thoughts.
Thanks much, Wednesday morning and things are going downhill fast.
I said prayers for you, Ms. Barb, and Proton – and all of the other residents of Florida. I hope y’all came through with no major problems.
