Yeah - I would if I could. At the moment, work wins the day and keeps me where I am. I dream of a retirement including heading south in a FW just after Christmas and not returning until Easter. DW is not so keen. Given that it's still a good 20 years out - who knows! For now, nothing to do but suck it up!I so know this feeling, but no more! I am done with the white stuff!
This was from about four years ago and it was the final push to get me to move south...
Not going to say you jinxed me, but I've woken up to sleet and freezing rain and highs and lows below freezing through TUE. I died a little inside when I suggested to DW that we postpone our shakedown trip until President's Day. She reluctantly agreed.Looks great!
'Shakedown this weekend!' Boy am I jealous...
Where are you in VA?Winter can be so unpredictable for camping. The traditional FW trip I have had to dig out the RV from a 14" snowfall, left in driving rain and sleet (non accumulating), And January 2014 it was 6F when I left VA heading south. Then last weekend it was 68F and we went on a 3 mile walk after spending saturday buying our new rig at the RV show. We are scheduled to pick it up next weekend and this weekend they are calling for snow while we work to box up most of the stuff and unload the old unit.
At the time Manassas, and the rig was stored in Chantilly near the cadillac dealer. We now live in Haymarket/Gainesville a short walk from Greenville Farm Family Campground with enough land and no HOA stopping us from storing the rig at home.Where are you in VA?
In January 2014 we were heading back to MD from Florida. What a letdown that was!
And how. Our spring break trip last year was 40s, windy, and miserable through KS, OK, and TX until we got down San Antonio.Winter can be so unpredictable for camping.
I've been in IT for almost 18 years now. For the last 5 I've been completely web based. I consider myself very lucky! It has allowed us to make our move from Maryland to Florida. Not retired yet but at least we've changed our geography to our retirement jumping off point. We are still in the take off for travel days and stay a week phase. I have worked from our home on wheels for 3 months while the house here was being finished so if I want to go an a road trip I can. That being said it's really no fun to be stuck in the coach working while my wife heads off to the pool! Best of luck to you and your goal!I work in technology but always seem to find the jobs that require me to be in the office. One day I will find a 90-100% telework job and can spend a summer when my wife (teacher) is on break and just travel the country. She knows my goal for retirement is to spend a couple years on the road visiting places.
