We want to wish all of our family and friends a very Happy New Year. Our wish for you is health, happiness and peace in the coming year!
It’s hard to believe another year has come to a close. 2014 was another enjoyable year in our full time RV lifestyle. We started the year in Texas and then made our way to New Orleans where our boys joined us for a cruise. It was a very memorable and fun trip.
We spent the rest of the winter exploring the Gulf Coast areas of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. As luck would have it, the winter was one of the coldest in much of the country, and that included the Gulf Shores. Even though it wasn’t as warm as we would have liked, we enjoyed exploring many new places.
In April we returned to Wisconsin to once again camp host at Derge Park. An added bonus to returning to Wisconsin this year was that we picked up our new Pinnacle fifth wheel. We sure do love our new home.
We had a fun summer and before we knew it, it was time to head south again. Due to some changes in Amazon policies, we decided to not work there this year. Instead we headed to Yuma, Arizona in October where we have been staying at Fortuna De Oro RV Resort. We’ve really enjoyed our stay here and definitely plan to come back.
When we thought we would be working at Amazon, we made plans to drive to Nebraska for Cathryn’s graduation and then continue to Wisconsin for Christmas. We still made that trip, only our starting point was Yuma, Arizona instead of Kansas. It ended up being over 4,000 miles of driving. Wow, that was a long trip! Next time we’re going to fly if we’re that far away again.
The trip was totally worth it though. As I reflect on the past year, my best memories are of those spent with family. I love seeing new places and the freedom of our full time lifestyle to explore, but spending time with family makes me very happy.
Today we are moving to The Palms RV Resort about ten miles down the road. This will definitely be the shortest move we’ve made so far. We booked the reservation last April when they were offering a buy one month, get one free deal for first time visitors. It’s supposed to be a very nice place, but we kind of wish we were just staying at Fortuna De Oro.
Our friends Dick and Wanda are also arriving in Yuma today for two months, so I’m sure we’ll be having some fun with them.
Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!
