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.

More About Our Fulltiming and Starting Thirteen.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After a late posting last night we didn’t make it to bed until nearly midnight which is way past our bedtime. Luckily we both went to sleep without waking in the middle of the night. However on nights that I sleep through I’m wide awake before 6:00 in the morning. Even though I try falling back to sleep after a short while it is normally my back that urges me to get out of bed. 

Now what could I do at an early hour like that? Well I started my morning reading and when I started seeing all the comments on yesterdays post Why We’re Going Fulltime” I was a bit startled. Later when Kathy would read those comments we both agreed with them all and are Thankful for some of the tips.

We’ll be downsizing “STUFF”! What that means things that we no longer use or need by selling or giving them away. There will be some “Things” that are treasures we would like to hold onto for such a time that we can no longer Fulltime that we will put in storage at this time. We also have an abundance of new clothes that we recently purchased that will also be packed away in the same storage unit. There are also consumable goods that everyone tends to stock up on when having a home or apartment that will again go in storage. In a trailer there is limited storage. As we use up our consumables and clothes the first place we’ll go shopping is our storage unit.  Yes there we’ll pay rent for this storage but it is cheaper than getting rid of everything and replacing it later. After a year we figure we might even downsize the size of the storage unit.

Our home phone number we presently have is connected to a “Turbo Hub” which is a wireless system. When we travel in Canada we bring it in the trailer and receive and make calls as if we are home. It also doubles as our mobile WiFi again when we are in Canada. We will definitely be bringing this system with us when we start Fulltiming.   

This afternoon I went to the Canadian Blood Services building and made my 97th blood donation. After my last blood donation being termed as Down Twelve Gallons this would make this donation the start of Thirteen Gallons. It’s always nice to be able to help someone in need that you can’t help with monetary donations. I read a new sign today that said “Over half of all Canadians are able to donate blood but only two percent do. That is probably true worldwide.

When I got back to the apartment the contractors hired by our new landlord had replaced our toilet with a new Low Flow model. Unfortunately these toilets are taller than the older models so they had to remove our standup storage unit because it hit the top of the new toilet. Kathy and I then went for a ride to Home Depot where I located a small piece of shelving material that I’ll use to fix our cabinet. We also had to go to Guardian Storage and our trailer. I needed my saw so I can cut the material. After all the rain we had yesterday our trailer was surrounded by a small lake.

It was nearly 6:00 by that time so we stopped at Wendy’s where we used a coupon to have our supper at a reduced price. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Office Jokes, Quotes, and Anecdotes

Ghosts, it seems, are not often spotted in modern offices. Paranormal investigators offer several theories as to why. Ghosts might not like new building's "environmental conditions" such as metal and concrete construction or fluorescent lights, says Vince Wilson, author of Ghost Tech and president of Maryland Paranormal Investigators Coalition.

  1. We have a few small boxes,(photos mostly) of stuff and some winter coats and boots stored at a friends place if we have to pay to store it would not be worthwhile, especially since its been over 9 years.
    Do whats right for you and enjoy the freedom.

  2. Followed your link to Bill and Pat's new blog yesterday. Always interesting to find another Ontario RVer going full-time who i can follow. And it sounds like their summer place will be up here in this region. But i was disappointed to find i couldn't comment or email him without setting up a Google+ account. He'd get more comments if he opened that up. Check your own blog every day, and looking forward to following your route to full-timing!

  3. We rented a storage unit also but still got rid of too many things we needed again once we bought our little home in Ohio....:(
