I'm just counting the days (54) until our Airstream comes out of winter storage.

We are in a similar boat as AirEgger. SuEllyn retired in 2000 and I punched-out in 2002. The best part is that we were 50 and 53 when we were able to begin our permanent vacation.

It took us until 2006 to find Airstreaming. We wasted a few years, but better late than never. We jumped into Airstream travel and never looked back. We are now up to 1,200+ nights in Lucy (47% of our time), and have towed her over 100,000 miles in all of the lower 48. What a great experience. There is still a lot of this great country that we want to see and experience. We hope that the Good Lord will see fit to give us the time to do it.

We are now in Jacksonville. We plan to head home on Monday. We will stay home only long enough to do laundry, wash and resupply Lucy, throw away the junk mail, and head out on another adventure.

Brian

Is this thread about being retired? We have been retired 5 years, 2 months and 2 days. Yeeeee-haa!!

One of the most important things to remember about being retired is what a privilege it is, and to be thankful every day one is able to do it.

Hey Brian, have you seen this? Found it at the Minnesota store at the airport there.

If you wait until you can afford to it may never happen.

I know, that's what I'm afraid of. One of by best friends dropped a little over 10 years ago. He was 40.

Once the kids college is over, we'll have a little better picture. Can't even think of it till then.

Swimming in a heated pool and eating oranges from the trees in the RV park where our Airstream is parked for the winter in Mesa, AZ.

Cold as a witches you-know-what here in NC. We aren't used to this Alberta clipper nonsense. Got our taxes done this morning. Was hoping to pad our AS fund, but that wasn't the case. Oh well!!

Lonewolf, I lived in western Canada for 50 years where all the nasty weather was attributed to a "Colorado low". Now that I live in central Canada, I have found out that the nasty weather is really due to the "Alberta Clipper". Folks in the Maritimes figure it's the "Jet Stream" that is responsible and we all know that most hurricanes incubate in the sands of the Sahara. Now, I have no idea what my point is.

It's a non-winter day (they said we were going to get a 50 year winter of cold and snow) so winterized the FaN early. Right now I am craving a trip. However, will probably still wait until the May long weekend.

The Earlybird RV Show is on in the valley. I may go to that.

Thanks, Maggie, for the photo of the "Happy Couple". We had not seen them before. We kind of fancy ourselves that way.
