Officially living full time!

After checking everything one last time, I'm finally full time as of today. This is awesome!

Meaher State Park in Alabama is my first home on the road.

Congratulations on being full time! We have stayed at Meaher state park numerous times and enjoyed each visit. Nice laundromat and showers. Also there is usually an alligator hanging around by the fishing pier. Might not be warm enough for him yet. Great seafood restaurants nearby...enjoy.

Way to go, I've been full timing for over 3 years and it's a low budget, cozy life style.

Thank you!!

Thank you, everyone! I didn't realize I had any replies until yesterday. for some reason my notifications weren't working.

We are having a blast and learning a lot about, "First World Full-Timing Problems."

Three rules I have learned so far.

1. Always have at least one full tank of propane
2. If the sewer hose is old, go ahead and replace it. You won't regret not finding out its actually dry rotted.
3. Ants... Don't put off treating your site for one second. And, yes they can come up through the toilet.

Meaher State Park is awesome! The gators are out and the kayaking is perfect right now.

I will check this more often now! Thank you everyone for the encouraging words!

Jim and Marti Ann.
