Our rig has been in Jacksonville in one spot since Thanksgiving. Today, Monday, we leave for Kentucky. We'll have three stops on the way to Louisville, and it feels good to be getting back on the road again, even if it is just for a short time.
We'll be in Louisville for all of April emptying my Dad's house and getting it ready to sell. We'll put a "For Sale By Owner" sign in the yard immediately in case anyone wants to purchase it "as is". And we'll spend a couple of weeks tearing out carpet to expose the beautiful hardwood underneath and doing some painting. Hopefully, it will sell quickly.
Then we'll be heading to Tennessee for the Spring Rally.
This past weekend, Linda and Karen finished up the bathroom. Linda constructed a threshold and used a nail gun for the first time.
And then she helped Karen clean up a flower bed and plant some new flowers.
In addition to watching a lot of basketball and occasionally helping out with the bathroom floor project, I have taken a roll as adviser. Jay has just recently been offered an early retirement package, so we've been going over numbers to determine how they can make it work if he takes it.
And, on Saturday, I installed the newest version of the PressurePro Tire Pressure Monitoring System. We've been using Pressure Pro since we started in 2005, and I decided to upgrade to their newest monitor and their newest tire pressure sensors which were just released earlier this year.
I'll do a more detailed post on the new system and the installation in the next day or two.
We've also received a new product for testing. Linda has just started using the Umbra Udry Drying Mat, so she'll give me her impressions after she's used it a few more times and I'll pass that on to you.
And Saturday morning, we did a half hour interview that will be part of an "audio summit" that includes interviews with several full-timers and will be available in early May.
On Sunday, we had sort of a farewell meal at the Sandollar on the St. John's River. It was a gorgeous day as we sat out on the deck with Karen & Jay, and Karen's daughter, Caroline, and her husband, Brian.
A nice young lady took another photo of us on our way out.
Thanks Jay & Karen for allowing us to stay in your front yard for these past few months. We appreciate it very much and we love you. We won't be back for a couple of years or so, but we sure hope you can come and visit us wherever we may be. Hugs. :)
