On the road again,,,,,,

I know it's been awhile, I'm bad........  Did you read my last post, a book report on The Clash of Generations?  I copied a portion of the book detailing the expenses of keeping up the house vs. hitting the road in the RV, full timing it.  It's still a good book that you should read.

Sun City Texas, a beautiful place to retire to. 
We sold the house in Sun City Texas (Georgetown) and now we are on the road, looking for a home with a RV garage.   It was a great house, and we loved Sun City, we were just never there!  Sandy still works (when she wants) 3 month contract jobs any where in the country, so now we just pull up in the RV and set up camp.  On her days off we get to tour that part of the country.  Sounds like the life, doesn't it?  We have full intentions of returning to Sun City Texas after we get done with this Gypsy phase of our life, in about 7 years.  

Just stopped along the Great Ocean Road to feed the wild birds.
Well, Sandy hasn't been doing much work lately, I'll have to crack the whip in a few months.  We got back last month from a two and a half month trip to Australia, which included a 36 day cruise, 3 weeks in Australia, and a two week cruise back to the states.  I call this our around the world vacation, we started going west and never turned around until we got back home.  Somewhere in the South Pacific, our home sold.  When we got back, we had a week and a half to pack up and get out.    

We are in north Texas for a few months checking out our new grandson, Kade Bradley.  He's 4 months now, and doing great!   It's a little chilly up here in the RV, but that's the sacrifice you have to make when full timing.  Not everything happens on your schedule.   Next year we need to be a little further south........

Our next big trip is a 48 day cruise from Long Beach CA to NYC, around South America.  We are excited about this one, we stop at 15 ports all along the S. American coast. And after THAT, Sandy has to go back to work.........

I promise to write more this year!
