We have been pondering a lifestyle change for months and yesterday we closed on a house in the panhandle of Florida. It was a difficult decision for us to give up the fulltime lifestyle, since we have enjoyed it so much. When we started out, we knew that for us, it was not going to be a forever situation and I had thought that three to five years would likely be the time frame for the adventure. It is now been five and a half years and we would not likely have made this decision except that the desire to spend more time with our two grandkids. We feel that the best way to do this is to have a fixed home base.
So while continuing our babysitting assignment for another week or so, we are starting the process of thinking about such mundane things as furniture, since we really have none, and all the other things we had pretty much forgotten about while on the road.
We are now working on just how we will continue our travels in what many folks refer to as “anytime RVers. We hope to make a final decision on that tomorrow. Perhaps that is why my brain is feeling a little sore:)
The house is nearly new and certainly very lightly used for less than 11 months. The couple that bought it new last year found It necessary to sell after less than a year. It is a bit larger than we need and located in a very quiet area on over a half acre lot that backs up to several hundred acres of wooded land.
This little project we will be keeping us busy for a few months, I am sure.
