2012--The Year for New Adventures and Change.
by Dave and Judy Woodruff
I loved reading your article. Very well written and you touch on a lot of great points everyone should be aware of before you fulltime or go on extended trips together or alone.
My husband and I are in our 60's and 50's. Hubby is retired and I am an ICU nurse. We are hoping to sell our home this spring/summer/fall (however long it takes) and fulltime in a class A RV.
We are so excited we can't wait to get started. We have been planning this for several years so I think we have thought this thing out pretty well. The most difficult thing was to detach ourselves from our possessions, but I think we have worked through this. We just keep reminding ourselves that it is just "stuff" and we will always have our memories.
Family has always been a concern. We have 3 children and 3 grandchildren but we are hoping skype and text messaging as well as good old postcards and letters will suffice. We will be back to visit several times a year. Luckily for us, all the children live in the same area.
My biggest concern is whether our 2 kitties will adapt to fulltiming. I have been researching this and have not really found too many fulltimers touch on this, so if anyone has any great ideas like, where do you put the litter box, how to keep your kitty safe during travel and any safe meds for that high strung kitty. I would appreciate your thoughts.
As I sit here, looking out onto the snow covered lawn and "enjoying" the frigid temps in the teens and the wind chills of below zero, I can only dream of warmer winters in the south with much traveling in the future. Good thing though, we are going to an RV show tomorrow. Yeah!
I hope to meet up with some of you RVer people out there in the future. Can't wait!!
