« Hitch Itch Is Ramping Up - (Chester, CA) | Main | The Beauty Of Travel »

Monday, August 17, 2009


We are exploring the possibility. Just sent them a copy of our resume. We'll see what comes of it...

Howard I know how it feels to want to move. Wife and I came to Oregon in April to workamp for 6 months. I had just retired and we were just into traveling. Problem is we love it here. Ocean on one side of HWY 101 and mountains on the other. We have the best of both worlds. WIfe got a great Full-time job in town after one month here. Guess we will stay here for a couple of years or more. I workamp and she works in town and we are saving money like crazy. Can not look a gift horse in the mouth so we are staying a few years and then buying land here but use this beautiful place as our new home base.


Beautiful country! I looked at the min, max and mean temps for those months. We did five months in Maine. It was in the low 30's in the a.m. when we arrived and in the high 20's every a.m. when we left. Man, our hitch was itching after 3 months. But ... beautiful country! A commitment of 36 hrs per couple is a bit high ... but beautiful conuntry!

I live about 225 miles south of there and I know it's beautiful in the summer. Plenty of site seeing areas when your not working. Don't forget Mackinaw Island and the large "Cross in the Woods" in Indian River.

As my wife is also from Kentucky, we would love to meet you and Linda.

I'm hoping you do take the position next summer. It would give me a great reason to head north next summer. Save a site for me.

There's some gorgeous scenery in Northern Michigan and plenty of weekend excursions. Google Mackinac Island, Pictured Rocks, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Tahquamenon Falls. A little further away is Frankenmuth and Bronner's Christmas Wonderland. There's some fantastic kayaking on many wonderful rivers, including the famous Pere Marquette, AuSable and Manistee rivers. You'll also find that the lower and upper peninsula are two different experiences, as you'll learn when talking to the Yoopers!

Hi Howard,

I don't think you and Linda would lack for things to do in your off time if you take the job in Michigan, and I know I'd love to see you spend some time in our homestate! We'd definitely be interested in a "mini-rally" or RV Dreams gathering here next summer, and even if that didn't happen we'd make time to visit you guys. Good Luck with your decison!


How timely for me!

We "take off" October 5. This past 9 months have been a challenge to us. We have had several crisis' in our personal relationship caused by misunderstandings and poor communication. We both got into a panic back in January as we were to take off in February. After soul searching and many tears we are back on track and now is the time. We both feel it. That is not to say we aren't just a bit nervous.

Each morning I read the days entry from "The Upper Room", a sort of morning devotion. Today the prayer concern was for those people facing change. I am not an everyday reader of your journal. Maybe once every few weeks. Today's entry spoke to me on getting out of my comfort zone. Coincidence? There are none. Thank you.
