RV-Able: Flexibility Required

“I’d like to be on the road by 10:00 am,” Ric told me the night before our five and half month stay at the beach trailer park ended.  “There are high wind warnings for tomorrow afternoon, so we should be at our destination before they hit.” I had pushed myself […]

RV-Able: Creating a Home

Gone are the wooden window valances draped in heavy material of sage green and burnt orange.  Gone are the matching upholstered dining chairs and the butterfly table.  Gone is the small J-couch that once blocked the large picture windows on the passenger’s side of the coach.  We are renovating. Since […]

Stumbling Start

“How do you feel about everything that is happening?”  my therapist asked me, last visit.  “Good,”  I responded, without hesitation.  “I feel as if I’m breaking down barriers:  embracing life and possibility, despite my illness.” Yesterday, I promised to rest, but there were boxes in the way, and nowhere to […]

RV-Able: The Adventure Begins

One day and forty-five minutes late, we are off on our new adventure.  It is still dark outside and the temperature is minus seven Celcius.  This is the first time I’ve been in the passengers seat and I am high up. The delay happened because Ric decided to have a […]

Preparations Are Mighty

A forty-one foot Alfa See Ya sits in the driveway awaiting take off. Ric has had to get medical clearance after two heart attacks and triple bypass surgery in the spring.  He has also had to get special licensing to drive our new soon to be home. We have purchased […]

It’s Happening!

We have done it!  Bought and paid for: A 40+ foot, diesel pushing, home on wheels, whom I affectionately call:  Hoo Gnu. If you knew me at all, you might be a little shocked (see the post RV Kidding?) It was late last night when we got it set up, […]
