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.

Cooler Sunny Day.

Our Location today is Crystal River, Florida.

Amazing how getting fresh air really helps a person to sleep through the night. Unfortunately last night because of the heavy rain that we were experiencing we couldn’t have the window open like the night before but that didn’t seem to matter. When we woke just before 8:00 the thermometer outside said it was 46 F (18 C) and we actually turned on the cube heater to take the chill from the air.
Once breakfast was over we did our usual morning reading and then we planned on the remainder of the day. Shortly after 11:00 I was calling around to the nearby Verizon locations to find one that was considered to be a Corporate outlet. Because we are Canadians and we have a prepaid MiFi hotspot through Verizon they always give us a hard time because the credit card we use to pay for it does not have an American address. So now tomorrow the Verizon Corporate outlet will be able to reset it hopefully for the last time this year.

Kathy was at it again in the kitchen as she still had some leftovers she wanted to finish for lunch it was delicious as always and I forgot to take a picture until it was all gone.
Last night when we came home in the middle of the rainstorm we found water dripping from the antenna crank so today I was up on the roof to find out why. The sealer that was applied around the cable that went through the roof was no longer there so I also inspected around all the vents where I noted other potential leaks about to begin. It only took a short while and now the rain will be staying on the outside of the trailer.
Kathy had been busy shampooing the carpets inside and now that I was off the roof had some clothes she wanted to hang on our bumper mounted clothes line.
Yesterday we had picked up a 3M seal to replace the worn seal at the bottom of the shower door. After cutting it to size and attaching it I was disappointed when it simply fell off. The old seal was the thickness of an old shower curtain and what I was putting on was meant for an exterior door seal which had not one but three sweeps on it. I had to remove one of the sweeps for clearance and then I had to scrape off the non-adhesive tape and replace it with new 3M tape I keep in my tool box. We'll see how that works tonight.
As I was closing up from that a few of the neighbors stopped to talk about different things I had done to the truck and Darlene stopped to chat with Kathy who was taking a break outside under the awning.
After supper there was an Ice Cream social down at the clubhouse so Kathy and I went down for our desert and we got to talk with a few of the other people that also attended. A sundae only cost $3.00 but Kathy and I both agreed that what they served was worth much more than that.
Kathy and I would like to welcome Laurel and George Owens as our latest followers. Their blog Owens on the Road is very colorful and unique as they combine the enjoyment of RV living and work-camping their way around the U.S.A. We’ve been following them since we read about the meeting of the Carolina Gang and we got to meet them first hand at the gathering of RV Bloggers at Crackers last Wednesday. Thanks again for following along with us.  
Four scoops of Ice Cream and enough toppings for a sugar rush.
Tomorrow we’ll have some errands to run before we get back to our next adventure. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


The World's Great Proverbs

You never miss the water till the well runs dry.


  1. It really rained quite hard didn't it! Some pretty awesome lightning too!

  2. Glad you found the leak so easily. Sometimes they can be tricky to locate. Google Eternabond sometime. It's what we have on our roof instead of caulk. Once you put it on, you never have to redo it and no more worries about leaks.

  3. We got over the Verizon deal with our Credit card and just bought a REFILL card at Dollar General. Just need to take it to any Dollar General and add money instantly goes onto you account, waiting for you to renew it. So easy.
