It's Official

I've read numerous times where full time RV'ers after selling and closing on their houses say "Houseless but not Homeless". Well we joined the ranks today. Had our closing at 10 am and deposited the check. That makes it OFFICIAL. We are now truly full time RV'ers. Of course since I still have, according to the countdown clock, 37 more days at work we are still stationary. I think it is a little harder for Glenda to come to the realization that this is our only residence but it has more to do with where we are at right now. We seem to be getting used to the constant drone of the traffic on the interstate right behind our site. Fortunately the traffic does let up some during the night so sleeping isn't too difficulty. Glenda and I have been talking about how anxious we are now to get moving on down the road.

The next milestone will be getting our South Dakota drivers licenses and attending the RV-Dreams Rally in Goshen, IN. Once that is accomplished we begin our trek to AZ for the winter. I'm at somewhat of a loss for words right now trying to let this all sink in. It's been a long process to get to this stage. Is this real? Did we just do this? We'll give it some time but I know this is the right thing to do at this time in our lives. That's about all I have right now. Tomorrow we go to Streamwood to see our daughter, SIL and Aiden. Next month we go to Indiana to celebrate the four August birthdays in the family and then my retirement at the end of August. Sigh of relief right now but also some uncertainty. We'll take some time and let it all soak in. Thank you again to all the fellow full timers that are willing to share their experiences and help those of us that are moving toward our dream. We're on our way and there's no turning back.

  1. When the calendar flips to the 1st of September that will be another weight lifted from your shoulders. The road noise you hear now will help you get through the same noise you will experience at some of your stop overs that you will make while exploring the roads of America.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Rick and Kathy, thank you for your comment. It should be a little easier listening to some road noise in OTHER parts of the good old USA. Not being out of IL is the hard part. Ready to move on.

  3. Congratulations, we felt such a great sense of freedom it was a bit surreal, once out of the lawyers office with check in hand we did a huge high five. The final countdown has begun...

    1. As I said, still hard to believe we have made it to this point. Getting more real every day. Lunch, dinner....you name it. Let's get the gang back together. See you soon. Curt
