Enjoyed your journal today.Glad your foot held up Howard on your hike.Salad looks good too Linda. I also watch Rachael Ray and the food network. We're heading to Estes Park. Co. Fri. to spend a few days hiking in the montains but will be glad when we have our RV and can go and stay AS LONG as we want.Have a good day and look forward to your journal tomorrow.

I have enjoyed reading your daily log and thought I would offer this piece of advice since you haven't used your A/C yet this year!!!! Turn it on NOW and run both units for at least an hour to make sure they are cooling properly. The last thing you want to find out is that one of the units isn't working properly on a hot sweltering day.

YES... I hate Mondays! (I still work).

Just curious Howard,

Given your age, have you given any consideration to how you would re enter the job market if your financial situation changed & warranteed it? When you decided to chunk it all, the house, full time job, etc, did you finalize a contingency plan should you deplete your funds? There recently was a published study about people over 50 yrs loosing their jobs or having to re enter the job market. Because of the difficulty due partly to the age, the suicide rate was high. Being a professional I have watched other rvers try to re enter the job market after determing that full timing was not for them. It is something to think about. A lot of people do sell everything when they decide to full time. Just wondering.

Hi Bob!
Good to hear from you & thanks for the reminder. As a matter of fact, the A/C is on right now. :)

Reading Bev's comment/question, isn't part of the allure and excitement of this "trip", not knowing what you'll do if it doesn't work out, but feeling that you'll be ok anyway? In the end, it's not a trip for the timid.

I was in the middle of drafting a response when Fred's comment came in. I couldn't have said it better myself. :)

Also, our FAQ #4 sort of addresses this issue as well.

Do you follow the core plan online or did you pick it up at a meeting? I was checking out their online site, a bit pricey, but maybe worth it?

Don, I am a lifetime member of WW. The Core plan was introduced to us at a meeting. It seemed like a great plan so we decided to give it a try back in Jan. 2005. We both lost the weight we had set out to accomplish. We feel it fits our lifestyle better than the flex points program.
