It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Lots of “See You Down the Roads”.

Our Location today is Marion, North Carolina, USA.

We both slept so soundly last night that we were wide awake by 7:30 this morning. On one hand we were not in a rush to go anywhere today but on the other hand we didn’t want to miss the closing ceremonies of the RV Dreams Reunion Rally. 
The last Reunion Breakfast Get-together.
We made our way over to the pavilion where again this morning we were served another full breakfast. After a few brief announcements from Howard and Linda who both got a little emotional because they had not expected the outpouring of Love and Appreciation they were shown for putting on this Reunion. There was mention that it looks like they’ll be making plans for another reunion somewhere down the road.   
Howard and Linda about to make the final announcements.
Everyone at the breakfast immediately started working together one last time storing the tables and chairs cleaning the floors and making certain the trash was collected. Within ten minutes everything was completed and then there were a lot of hugs and handshakes going around before many of the participants prepared to pull out today. 
We sat and watched as rig after rig pulled out.
Kathy and I like many others had made plans to stay an extra day in order to avoid the weekend traffic. We sat outside and waved farewell to the nearly forty rigs that pulled out heading for their next destination.

Once the traffic had slowed quite a bit we chose to go for a bicycle ride to try to limber ourselves up. Since the Tom Johnson RV Dealership is attached to the edge of the campground we went over to the Parts Sales looking for a copy of the Next Exit. Unfortunately they didn’t have any but they were having an Open House so we took the time to look around a number of A and C class units. We only saw one unit that enticed us but it will have to wait for when we choose to downsize from our existing RV.
The few rigs left today.
It was nearly 1:00 by the time we returned to the trailer to have lunch. Afterwards while I worked outside to close things up Kathy vacuumed the inside. I also installed our new outdoor weather gauge and it kept showing the temperature above the 90 degree mark. A few of the other remaining Reunion attendees stopped over to talk as well but when the skies darkened and the distant thunder grew more intense everyone headed indoors. I was a little damp before making it inside our trailer.

The rain stopped just before 5:30 so Kathy and I went to Taco Bell for supper in hopes that what was still outside would dry off before we returned. The temp had dropped to the low 80s by the time we got back and everything was dry. I just managed to finish packing up everything outside for tomorrow’s travels. 
Just before 7:00 this evening. 
As I sat down to write this post the rain really started coming down which sent lots of people scrambling for cover. For a while the stone roadways were beginning to look like small streams and the temperature is just above the 60 degree mark. At least we had gorgeous weather for the Reunion Rally. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
