I was stationed in southern Italy in the mid eighties, and the grandfather of one of our Italian friends fought for Mussolini in WW2 and was captured by the British. He was so happy after he was captured. Said that he had it better as a POW than he did as a soldier in the Italian army. He couldn't believe the Brits actually gave him socks. He didn't have those working for the other team...

-Red, loving my socks on these cold mornings...

Story time....Place Lake Park Campground, Lake Lewisville, Texas. About 2010.

I was walking around and noted a fellow about 80 years old was setting up a brand new, 30 foot moho. So, asking if i could be of any assistance, and commenting on his new RV, we began a conversation.

As the story unfolds, he and his wife had been RV'ers for many years and at age 80 they decided to enter a retirement village, and give up the RV lifestyle. Six months later, they were looking at each other and said...."What are we doing here?"

The answer was obvious...waiting to die and not enjoying the process at all. So, they went out and purchased a new moho and decided to go full time, in the lifestyle they enjoyed, for as long as they possibly could, in the moho.

My kinda folks!

Random thoughts from my confused mind.

Most people do not get out of life, alive.

People work most of their life in order to retire from work.

Many people retire, then get a job because they either need more money or need something to work at.

Most of my retired friends have jobs.

None of my old retired friends have Airstreams.

Conclusion: I need to get some new friends.

It simply gravels me when I hear folks listening to rocks ... even if it is a 3/4 T 4wd ....moho ho ho to you, too!

Msmoto, great story and message. You can retire, get sick, and die. Or you can retire, buy an RV, get well, and live.

On one RV forray, the rig across from the FaN belonged to full-timers. They had been doing it for eleven years. They were in their late seventies, but looked fifteen years younger.

"How beautiful it is to do nothing,
And then to rest afterward".
- Spanish proverb

This is my random thought contribution. Would like to add the quote to our profile if someone kind enough to explain how to do.

The fun in doing nothing doesn't come from having nothing to do.
It comes from having something to do, and not doing it!
