Hi Everyone,
On 12/1 I flew to El Paso (in the snow) to pick up my "new" 30' 1995 AS Mo Ho and drove it back home. I'm so excited about it and looking forward to all the AS rally's and events. I've travel around the US my whole life, been RVing since 2001-crossing the country twice and down Baja 3 times. These trips have not always been alone but always in my rig. I've raised 4 boys, lived on a boat with my cat for 12 yrs. I'm a retired RN, am 73 and hope for many more yrs of traveling. My biggest worry is maintance on the MH. Looking forward to Mar!!
Keep Moving Even if You Have to Push.

Quick resume...

H and I bought a 69 Globetrotter - fixed her up and spent a month south each winter, hit a few rallies and then his job changed. So we sold her. I felt like I was trapped with no escape pod - so all of about a month went by and I bought a 63 globetrotter that needed a lot of work. H and I tackled like clockwork and I went to my first Silver Sister Rally in Ohio - What an adventure. Met some fantastic women - that literally changed my life.

Then neighbour from H*ll crossed our path, Then H got sick, then garage caved in, then I got sick then Mother got sick, then Dad got sick. H, Dad and I got better, Mum did to some degree.

I got totally stressed and needing a life change I headed out by myself for a 2.5 month hiatus from everything. Returned home to a brand new RV garage. H was great, Dad no so good and neither was Mum - so I cared for them for a while. Then we were thrown into more land appeals and in between Mum died waiting for her dream home. And our lives were shattered. Neighbour dragged our lives out for 4 years and we lost every penny we have fighting for the right to build a house for my parents.

Now we are having to sell our home and most of our possessions, put in for a building permit on a house we don't even want - we could not even stomach living down there - but it is our only way to get back to 0 and start again with only 6 years to our retirement!

So as a House Stager spends time with us and the last 4 days we have virtually packed up most of our house hoping to get the house on the market for the 15th - we have renos to do Xmas decorations to do and a garage FULL of stuff to sort and take to the auction and dump and pack and store away indefinitely.

And to top it all - we have no idea where we are going to live or what we are going to do - other than the next step is to build a house to sell it - and live in a trailer and a boat at the water front lot while doing so.

But the positive - I am almost 49 and I am going back to school!!! I am signed up to take a double diploma in Paralegal/Law Clerk and I am heading straight into Municipal, Land and Environmental Law. In 1.5 years I will be eligible to jump into UNB and complete my Bachelors Degree in Applied Management which will then allow me with my combined Education and Employment experience to apply to the School of Law (in the US). Of course this part is the icing on the cake and one of those bucket list items.

I hope to within the next year work toward my own consulting business with my Paralegal License to follow shortly.

Yep Lou and Larry - you know exactly where I am headed with this don't you. If I can do one thing in my life and that is to change a system that is so damn corrupt and unfair - it is the OMB and the Provincial Planning Act! No one should have to go through what Peter and I have - to build a simple 1100 square foot home in keeping with the surrounding development meeting all the regulating agencies permits, with a reasonable request for relief on the set backs to simply have "neighbours" throw us into an appeal system that SUCKS! (no better word comes to mind)

So I start in Jan and finish just before my surgery - yep a new ankle at the end of April. I hope to at least sit and enjoy the view of our beautiful waterfront lot while they build a house on there - I will enjoy gloating at the DR. - we may be Rocky - bloodied soar and broken - but we are not defeated! And we have the last say as it has always been OUR land NOT HIS - and HOW dare he think he has the right to privacy on OUR Land and to think he is any better with more privileges because of his D and R!!!

Sorry Sheryl - you have caught me at quite a time in my life! and easily taken off track....

I love my Airstream - any airstream and all airstreams. I love the independence. And yep women traveling alone get quite a lot of people coming up and commenting on how amazed they are that we are alone and doing all that their H's are doing.

I am sure we could all tell some pretty crazy stories....

We "Easterners" are long over due another Rally -but we need to get it out of Michigan tee hee - no offense MICHIES?? - but how about a trip to Kansas - that would be cool - of course I would come on over to Mich and Caravan down with you all. Seems I may have quite a bit of the summer off!!! But I have to wait till I can walk again.

Face book is a great idea too - I don't visit it much - just no time but would be interesting to see how many outside this forum there may be out there.

PS for those following - Peter is motivated now to finish the LadyBug - hmm that will be re-named as he wants it for him!! ha could it be cause I keep calling the ModPod Mine....

He has had to sell his tracker so I told him he will need his own TV too

But I think he is into the idea of becoming Captain K - he has really missed not having his boat in the water these past two years! and he does not get to travel south with me either poor fellow - really needs a break from all this stress.
Girl, That's a lot of good background. I feel like we'd need to get on the phone for me to appropriately respond! I have had a bad year too, but I feel for you and all of your pain. You've really been put through the ringer.

Proud to know you strong women who take the world by the balls. yippee!

Hey Julilanne, those pictures were taken last year in February in Ft. Myers beach Florida. The RV park is right on the beach and it's called the RED COCONUT. It's hard to get into, almost have to book a year in advance. In fact, I think I better call them today and check my reservations. My parents go down there each year for a few months and they want me and the girls to fly down, but I'd much rather hit the road with my Airstream.

Anyone have nick names for their trailers? I need a good one for my Bambi.

Anyone travel to Florida from the Midwest in late February? That would be a great caravan to plan!!!!!

Would love to meet some of you gals out East. I am in Arizona but I do travel all over the country. I am lucky enough to have the freedom to do that. One reason I packed up and moved out here from Seattle was to experience new places, still haven't seen all that the SW has to offer but I am getting there. One of my closest friends lives in Minneaplois, Kansas and is always asking me to tow on up there. So many places I want to see and experience.

Caravaning is a blast. I hadn't done it until recently because I am so use to taking off on my own. My friends Louis & Sergio have a '62 Ambassador, we caravaned to Northern New Mexico and back together (around 1200 miles). It was a treat for me since I usually just travel with my pooches, not really stopping much. With Louis & Sergio we stop to have leisurely lunches and nice long rest stops, they have two dogs as well. Its nice to have someone to chat along the way with. We even talked about getting CB's so we dont have to text and drive!
Ok, so you're up for a road trip! I am near Kansas city and live in a beautiful lake community and my parents have land nearby where Airstreams can park! She owns a beautiful bed and breakfast and a few Airstreams could park there I bet! Back n Thyme Guest House & Herb Garden

I just started a new job, and just winterized the bambi, but I'm up for a trip in Feb or March! I want to try and go to CA for that Rally. I couldn't do both (FL and CA) I would have to choose.

Sheryl

Florida

I figured that was Florida...nice! I've been there twice but neither time was in "Lucy". Someday!
There is a place in San Diego I like to go, not right on the beach but on Mission Bay. Same deal need to book a year in advance or only go for a few days in the middle of the week. Ideal for escaping the heat here in the summer.

Just checked my map Sheryl to see where you are. One of my bff's lives in Minneaplois, Kansas and has been asking me to visit for years, looks like a straight shot on 70 from there to Kansas City area. Hum is that bbq I smell?

We always name our trailers and our boats - even our house.

House is Chattering Woods.

Our 4 Airstreams have been
MoonBeam - 1969 Globetrotter - hmmm no brainer -
Ollie - 1961 Overlander - From Laurel and Hardy -
LadyBug - 1963 Globetrotter - cause she was mine

And now ModPod 2005 (turns out she's mine too)
But can't have two so Peter is saying the more I call ModPod mine the more he is going to claim the LadyBug and she will most certainly NOT be called LadyBug he claims.

As mentioned I like to think of the little trailers as my Escape Pod to life!!! (and from Life at times too)

The 05 was the first one that was not Vintage - The International is very very modern compared to the other three we have had.

We were on our first little escape to Algonquin Park after my sea of lies to surprise H for our 25th Wedding Anniversary with a big silver trailer that WORKED!!! and was ready to camp in. (ha method to my madness - I could feel the waters brewing under the bridge and needed something to possibly live in if in a real crunch, if he said what the F*** have you done!)

In the Art shop at the park I found these hand painted tile magnets and thought they were great....

So "Love My Mod Pod - WOW" is the name that stuck!
