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.

Considering Changes.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada. 

Having had problems sleeping the entire night lately I thought staying up later would help. Kathy was already in bed by 11:30 so once I’d posted the blog I busied myself making the last twenty-eight data entries into my file. When I first started the job my eyes were already getting heavy but wanting to finish the file I figured by completing the task I would surely sleep the entire night. I finally got to bed at approximately 1:15 but my plan had backfired, instead of falling fast to sleep I was then wide awake. After finally falling asleep looking at the clock every half hour became the norm. I was wide awake by 7:30 but as I write this post feel totally exhausted. 

After completing our morning reading both Kathy and I were on the computers doing similar research but heading in totally different directions. Since we have only started our Fulltiming Adventure Kathy thought we’d look at possibly downsizing our present trailer in another five years. After we discussed what kind of trailer we would be looking for we started searching the web where we got plenty of ideas. 
Tomato rice soup and salad for lunch.
Since we weren’t too active this morning Kathy thought it would be wise to have a light lunch to keep our intake down so we simply had a bowl of soup and the last of the salad that was in the fridge. We also continued our discussion that waiting to trade our unit in would lower its resale value. We are not in an extreme hurry but decided why wait to start looking so if we find something soon I can personalize it before we hit the road.  
Why are the golfers parked here.
There are plenty of RV dealerships in our area but there is only one that we really trust to be treated fairly. Shortly after 3:00 we arrived at Sun Parlour Trailer in Amherstburg to put our plan in effect. When Rob saw us he first thought we were there to visit but Kathy changed the tone of things when she said we were there on business. We looked at a number of slightly used trailers he had in stock and found one worth considering. Since he has other trailers coming soon as trade-ins he suggested looking back later. 
Because all these parking spots were filled.
After spending over an hour out in the 100 F (38 C) Humidex we thought it was easier just to have supper in Amherstburg. Looking around we finally stopped at Gilligan’s for our meal where this gave us a chance to rest up inside an Air Conditioned building. This also gave us a chance to further discuss the trailers that we’d seen. We started listing things that we’ll need to get ready before heading south this fall even if it is with this trailer. 

It was nearly 5:30 when we arrived at our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa’s home for our weekly Wednesday evening visit. We talked about a number of things such as their house hunting and our thoughts of downsizing the trailer before Kevin and I went outside to the garage. I needed to use his table-saw to cut a new sill plate for our friend Kathie’s apartment window. If the landlord had fixed it for her he would have charged her to do it because he claimed she damaged it. She had an old shelf from an old cabinet that was in excellent shape and the saw made quick work of changing its size. It was after 8:00 when we left after another enjoyable visit. 

Back Home after letting Kathy into the trailer I took care to water our grass and plants. Tomorrow we have some errands to run but we don’t have to set an alarm clock. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time.

  1. Just taking a moment, from going through "stuff", to catch up on what everyone is doing this summer. Sounds like you both are keeping busy while enjoying being "fulltimers". I cannot lie I am envious. I keep hanging on to the fact that even if the house is not sold by next summer it will be cleared of "stuff" and we will be able to sit back and relax.

    We will be heading out a couple of weeks earlier then you, starting in North Carolina and eventually ending up in the Southwest also. Hope our paths cross it would be nice to put faces to the blog.
    Looking forward to reading about your travels this winter.
