Btw you can rain on my parade anyday. As long as I'm in a Tt and not a tent, I happen to love rain once in a while
We are trying to "live the dream of full timing"; but, I made a commitment to a friend of mine and help him with his business (I retired 01/19/11 and sold the house 11/28/11). So, I'm still vicariously living thru others - although I am technically full time living in my fiver. Just to need to find the mountains and the lake...

P.S. send me the cookie recipe. Not sure if the kids would like the lemon, but, lemon squares and meringe are my favorites!

Yeah actually it struck me earlier....you live where? Oh yeah Texas where you could probably camp 8 months out of 12 and we are in Manitoba where that would be maybe 3 if we are lucky. so you win , Phar0e, score 3 , Redhorse score 10!

I sent the recipe to you. You are a little closer to the full time thing than we are but we are planning for the future that's why we bought something a little smaller now and the plan is to have it paid off 10 years down the road when we can trade it it for something more substantial. Keep on looking for those mountains and lakes they are out there!

A perfect morning for us is hearing the grandkids in the bunkroom mumbling something about hoping we will make pancakes that morning plus hearing the coffeepot cranking up. C'mon springtime!!!!!

You're being kind to me now. :hihi: I'm anxiously watching my retirement calendar (5, maybe 6 years) and looking forward to visiting some spots like the one in your pic.
Yeah we can probably camp 12 outa 12 but I long for some distant destinations, hitting the road for 4 to 6 weeks at a time. That's why we travel, to see "different". If I wanted "same" I'd stay home.

Yep your right, that's what it's all about for us too. we have the wanderlust virus. we have a beautiful national park with everything you could want for camping. "Riding Mountain", only an hour away But we somehow have this need to get in a car and go see it all! sometimes I think staying put for a week or two would be nice so that is what I look forward too when we reach the full timers stage, having the best of both wotlds Right now like others here mentioned we enjoy taking our grandkids with us (occasionally) and building those memories.
