Wow!! What a great post! So true on the fears and the dreams, there is a balance that needs to be met. Inspiring, and couldn't be explained any better than you just did!! ;)

This blog is the only one I always take time to read. All the other blogs are pale compared to yours. Thank you.

Really great post Howard. I especially agree with your reality check about the pictures "....of your RV parked inches from your neighbor, pictures of your RV in a service bay, pictures of you dumping holding tanks...etc". SO true. As is the time and research to constantly find places to stay that you'll actually like. You are particularly amazing at finding great campsites. This one you have looks really fine. Thanks for the lead on this campground. I think we will have to check out #73 for ourselves. :-)

Hi Howard
Had a little down time at end of a hectic work week & So I Just caught up on you latest journal posting.
Sound like you had a hectic past week too, but good to see you are getting some good down time.
Ones again your last post is very inspiring, I will be turning 61 this Sunday & hope to be full-timing in the next few years.
I just found RV-Dreams in the last few months & been checking out all the great info. you have out there.
Thanks so much for all the useful things & inspiration you have to offer.
I am looking forward to meeting you & Linda at the Spring Rally in April
Keep up the good dreams Thanks R. Raab

Waiting for the RV-Dreams bumper stickers!!!

That was a great post, thanks!

It's great getting a preview of these GA state parks. They have such a great site for volunteering and I have applied for the two you have been to in the past but haven't been accepted. I am supposed to report to Hard Labor Creek SP 11/1 to volunteer at the golf course but some health issues are probably going to delay my arrival there. Thanks for the info.

We are glad we enjoyed the RV lifestyle for 3 years. At first we thought we would be on the road until we were ready for the old folks home, but our bank account dictated otherwise. We probably could have stretched it another year or so had we been more conservative in our choice of an RV, but we had a wonderful 3 years. My advice is think long and hard about going full-time. If you change your mind is a year or so -- it could be a VERY expensive decision.

Howard, great post. Thanks for all your time & effort. One question who wrote that book about trailering from Keywest to Alaska in an Airstream? I am interested.

Thanks Again, Bill

We have also resisted the $79 Amazon Prime membership, but maybe we need to re-think it.

I'll be interested in your post about the Affordable Care Act and what it means for you. Fortunately our retiree health care wasn't canceled like so many others we have heard and we can keep our policy.

We are so glad you are enjoying the beautiful Georgia State Parks. There are many that are out of the way, but, beautiful & serene. I think the airstream book you are referring to is "Long, Long Honeymoon" It was written by a couple from the Birmingham area that bought the Airstream & took it to Key West where they were married on the beach. That started a year long (I think) cross country trip. It is a pretty interesting book.
Keep us posted on your take on the Affordable Care Act. I think everyone is interested to your take on the issue.

Hey Bill,

The book I referred to is called "The Longest Road: Overland in Search of America, from Key West to the Arctic Ocean" by Philip Caputo.

I have only read the first three chapters per my Kindle sample, but I'll probably order it eventually.
