Sunday we made the move to the Bighorn with loads of clothing, housewares, food and misc items that we think we will need for our fulltime life. Glenda has already taken back out some of her clothing due to the limited space and re-consideration of what she really needs. I think we will be going through this alot. So far the transition is going smoothly. We have everything out of the bedrooms at the house so the upstairs is empty. We brought everything down to the main floor and once we take the left over items to Goodwill all we should have left next week is selling the remaining furniture.
The Radon mitigation was done yesterday but no word on when another test will be done before closing. Sunday and Monday was very hot and humid so we ran the A/C for the first time. We can set the desired temp digitally but found out that the fan runs continuously after the desired temp is achieved. That makes it difficult to hear the TV when we have the main A/C on. So we found out that once we have the main area at the temp we want, we can turn it off and run the bedroom A/C to maintain the temp. That makes it much quieter in the main area. We did run the A/C on Sunday night in the bedroom all night which helped with the road noise due to the proximity of I-74 to the south of the campground.
On Monday night a thunderstorm rolled through which kept us up a little longer with the rain on the roof and higher winds. Fortunately the campground sits on a little lower ground and is somewhat protected. It's going to take some getting used to the new sounds compared with the house. I had to get on the roof last night to check the surface for debris and possible breaches in the the rubber rood material. We are sitting under a tree and I did find a couple small dead branches that fell off with the winds. I also noticed alot of bird droppings and the birds like berries. Going to be a big cleaning once we are ready to move on. Thankfully no tears in the roof.
Yesterday was a beautiful day after the storms with much lower humidity and sun to dry things out. We even opened the windows and had to pull up the covers a little last night as the temps dipped into the upper 50's. A welcome relief. Glenda has been working her tail off getting the new home organized. Sometimes it's hard to find a place for everything. I'm sure there will be more purging before we take off in Sept.
I will be taking the afternoon off today from work so we can load the truck with a couple of dressers, mattress and box springs and a few totes to take to our daughters house in Indiana for July 4th to store for us. She has tomorrow and Friday off so we will get to see the grandkids and store the items we don't need. In addition to that her birthday is the 4th of July so we get to celebrate with her. She certainly has been our firecracker child. :-) Saturday we will be coming back home to continue the transition and we will be bringing back our youngest granddaughter with us so she can spend some time with her other grandma in Decatur, IL. We will get to have our time later this summer as we travel to Indiana for the RV-Dreams Rally in Sept.
Feeling good about our decision to go fulltime so far. Feel so comfortable in the rig. Looking forward to getting on the move but for now fulltiming but stationary works too. The clock keep ticking and retirement is right around the corner and it won't be long. I don't have to say retirement and fulltiming any more since we're half way there. The photo below the blog title is our site at Kamp Komfort. We are grateful to the owner for assigning us this site with no one on the awning side and a big yard. Nice for a private campground. Have a great Fourth of July everyone.
