Lazy Days Around Here

Gerry and I have been asked many times if we are on a vacation when we stop in restaurants or touristy place.  We always say we live full time in our motor home and almost everyone expresses a desire to do the same when they retire.  While it isn't for everyone, it is a lifestyle that we prefer at the present time.  One day we will have to hang up the keys and settle down, but we don't want to do that until we grow old.  LOL

Most people compare our lifestyle to a vacation, however we don't consider it that way.  We do tour new places when we get a chance, but many times it is like living in a house.  There are chores to be done, repairs to be made and some days when we just sit around and do nothing all day.  Today was such a day for us.  It was raining for a good part of the day and chilly, so geocaching was out for the day.  Gerry read on her Kindle and I watched some football and worked on organizing our 65,000+ digital photos.  Exciting stuff!  

We are planning on driving back to the Charlotte, NC area on Wed or Thursday.  Barb & Henry picked up tickets to the Trans Siberian Orchestra for them and also us and we are going see the group on  Thursday night.  We'd like to drive back a little sooner, but they are calling for temps in the low 20s and I don't like to be in weather that cold.  We can keep the inside of the motor home comfy with no problem, but some of the outside water pipes are a little exposed.  We've never had a problem and want to keep it that way.  The outside water hose from the spigot has frozen a few times, but hasn't ever broken. 

That was our exciting weekend and hopefully Monday will be more interesting.  It's either visit Charleston downtown or possibly do some geocaching in the area.  We've been to Charleston a number of times and love the area, but have run out of new things to see around here.  At least they have cold beer and good seafood.

With that, I will close for now.  Hope you all had a great weekend.


  1. Doug has used a drop light in the water bay to keep the lines from freezing. One time in Amarillo and Albuquerque, it was snowing and below freezing. We were going to visit Doug's classmate in Flagstaff. He said not to come. We did get to see them later. We dropped south and went to Tucson. Guess that was a time visiting you two and stayed at the fairgrounds.

    1. Gloria I remember your last trip to Tucson very well. That was when you bought the Ipad for your birthday at Sam's Club. I also use a drop light with a 100W bulb in the water compartment to help keep it warm. It works very well and has helped us through some 25 and below temps. The aqua hot boiler also throws off heat and that works fine for us. I just like to be on the cautious side in regard to freezing temps.

  2. It's chilly here today. I can't seem to get warm with thermos, shirt and sweat jacket on. I think some of it is me. 65 outside but it's windy. 92 the day we got here kind of spoiled me. Stay warm.
