Two years now since starting this blog in October, 2007. Time to look back a bit.
We sold our house and moved into our trailer in July, 2007. I worked for two more months, to qualify for a small pension. We hit the road in mid-September.
Since then, we have traveled down and up the west coast twice, from northwestern WA to the Mexican border. As far east as Kansas. Seen about 15 national parks and numerous state parks, including a three month stint this past summer as park hosts in Fort Stevens State Park, OR.
Now we are considering a trip to Alaska this coming summer. You heard it first here (where else?).
More importantly, we have met many wonderful people whereever we've traveled. We have friends in states we have not even seen. And we just joined a community of like-minded folks here at Park Sierra, north of Fresno, CA. We expect to spend Spring and Fall here, and travel Winter and Summer as as long as we can.
And then there is Clancy, the wonder dog. Energetic, stubborn, feisty...a typical terrier. Thirteen months old now, starting his adolescence. He's calming down some...no, actually he just sleeps more.
Do we harbor regrets on selling our house for this life on the road? None. Other than regular head smacks in this low ceiling abode. A small price….
Regrets about retiring at age 59 and 62? Ha ha ha…snicker…chuckle…no...chortle.
All is well. On to Tucson in December!
