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.

Great Visiting Day.

Our Location today is Largo, Florida.

Even after a short travel day yesterday we were both tired enough to sleep solid through the night. By 8:00 this morning we slowly got up and after a breakfast of cereal we sat at the computers until nearly 10:00. We took a walk around the park to see where a lot of the amenities were and to know which way out we’d have to drive when the time comes to leave.

Yankee Traveler RV Park has limited transient sites for RVs that come and go after spending a week to a month. Most of the trailers are older travel-trailers that have been retired from the road and are now skirted with additions that would be associated with a sticks and bricks type home.
They had quite an impressive shuffleboard court with shaded seating for the players. The heated pool was clean with a fair sized hot tub right next to it. The laundry room only had two washers and two dryers mostly for use by the transients because most of the park residents have their own.

The landscaping is very well taken care of but the one thing that really impressed us was they Recycle. This is the first park we have been to in Florida this year that Recycles every where else it all ended up in the landfill.
Nicholas, Tom, Bryce and Marci
We received a call from Tom, Marci, Nicholas and Bryce from the blog ROAMING FREE 2010 that they had just left a Volunteer Appreciation Picnic and they were on their way to the Chick-fil-A where we had previously made arrangements to meet at. After hugs and handshakes we finally got together inside for a light snack filled with catch up conversation. Since we hadn’t seen them since the July 4th weekend in 2010 at Thunder Bay, Michigan there was lots of catching up. Even though we have been watching the boys growing up on-line and everything the family had to go through selling their home and getting ready to full-time it was really nice to sit down and visit with them.
L to R Nicholas, Bryce, Tom, Marci and Kathy off to the side.
We still needed more time to talk so they followed us back to the park where they got a tour of our new trailer. Tom and I talked technical while the boys listened in. Marci and Kathy got caught up on one another’s travels. Finally we all sat for a bit and talked of things Nicholas and Bryce have been up to. Finally after running short of time they had a puppy waiting for their return so they had to leave. I hope we get to do it again much sooner than 2 ½ yrs.
Final well wishes after a Great but Short Visit.
As they drove away with the hope of meeting on down the road again I had another visitor. Ron is parked on the other side of the pond (70 Feet) from us. He has a 2011 F350 truck and we were swapping information including the fact that he is also from Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
