It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Another Great Day.

Our Location today is Olde Town, Florida.

This morning we were once again awake shortly after 7:00 and again the inside of the trailer felt like an iceberg so we turned on the furnace just to get the chill out of the trailer. We proceeded to have our breakfast and sat at the computers enjoying a second cup of coffee in order to warm up. With plans of exploring the area today we didn’t just sit around but noticed the trailer was warming as the sun climbed higher in the sky. With what we needed to bring we headed out the door and that is when I saw it.
Yesterday the temperature had climbed close to 80 F but with a comfortable breeze so we had opened the windows in the trailer. Last night after the sun set and the temps started going down we closed all the windows. As we were leaving this morning and I was about to lock the door I was looking at the one window we’d forgotten to close. Gee I wonder why it was so cold in the trailer last night?
The temp stayed comfortable as we looked around to see the attractions so we’d know where we had to go and could better plan our outings. We also had to pick up a few things we needed at where else but Walmart. It seemed as if we were only in the store a few minutes and managed to find everything we could think of that was needed on our list we had forgotten to bring.
Since we didn’t feel like eating at any of the fast food names we took a short drive down US19-Alternate and saw a few interesting places but one especially was busy so that’s the one we chose. By the time we were parked a lot of people were leaving and more were pulling in a constant stream. The name of the place was Bar-B-Q Bill’s. Everything they served other that the salad bar was barbecued. We had seen the white board with the day’s specials as we entered and decided on a pork sandwich with fries for $5.25. In less then five minutes we were eating one of the best barbecued pork sandwiches we’d ever eaten and at a reasonable price to boot.
As we were heading back to the campground I noticed it was time to fuel since I had last fueled three weeks today in the state of Georgia. When I entered the information into a spreadsheet that I monitor our fuel on I noted that we had over 700 miles in those three weeks and over half those miles were towing the trailer.
On the way back at the campground we decided we may have our first campfire of the season so we stopped at the office to pick up some firewood. Back at our site we unloaded all our purchases and put them away just on time for a steady wind to start blowing. Guess we’ll be having our first fire tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

You've washed an entire truck with a baby wipe.


  1. Mmmmmm.....nothing like a good BBQ sandwich! Sounds like the weather is perfect. Hope that campfire works out tomorrow!

  2. It is so easy to do leaving a window open overnite...afterall, how often do we open windows in January while in Michigan or Ontario??? Kind of like out of sight ...out of mind.

  3. Keep up the good work. You guys are living the dream. Wish I was there instead of here in the snow. It snowed overnight and now the freezing rain has arrived. Glad I don't have to go anywhere today!!
