Brad,

I-40 is not re-opened as of last week. We had to take the detour when we came in.
Look forward to seeing you and Susan, as well as all of our friends here in the east.

Marie

Sophie has charmed everybody along the way.

There was a small issue with the window awning in New Mexico. For some reason it came unfurled in the 75 mph winds we encountered, and we had to stop and replace the hold down latch.
The Burb averaged 7.2mpg on the way---gulp...

Bill,
I wish we had been able to get together again before we left because I still have very fond memories of the barbecue at your house and meeting your family. Sophie sends you a woof. I hope you can get out here, or we can meet in the middle of the country for a rally.

Marie

My husband and I will be full timers the last week of this month! We have thought long and hard about this and with early retirement in place why not!?

We will be work campers at Acorn Acres RV Park Acorn Acres RV Park and Villas Home page, Ozark Mountain camping near Branson Missouri, Celebration City, and Table Rock Lake in Branson Missouri this year...so please come visit the park.... it is very quiet and the sites are spacious.
The park is on 76hwy only 1 1/2 miles west of Silver Dollar City.....and the 76' strip.

We are trying to tie up loose ends and get moved out of our house in 10 days!!!!
Jack is working to finish a few things in the camper before we go and we haven't boxed a thing.....YIKES!!!! Wish us luck

Congratulations to both of you on the new job and the move, and best of luck. I've already found OODM to be quite helpful in the renovation of your Goliath, and I'm sure I will continue to do so.

Best,
-Marcus

I do wish you the best of luck and fond memories. We are not able to travel right now, because on Monday I start a new job with a new company.

When we do get the chance to travel, I really want to go to the Branson area as I miss Missouri and would like to spend some time there. You will enjoy full timing, I know I did.

See you down the road.

Marie

Sorry I missed you two on your way east. Seems about impossible to meet up with anyone these days. No doubt we will finally meet on the road someday though.

Rodney,

We wanted to stop and see a lot of people, but we were on a deadline, the move was not exactly planned. But if you are in the neighborhood, let us know and we'll make plans to have a meal and a visit. This applies to everyone we have met.

Marie

Hi Terry, Marie, and Sophie,

I too am sorry to have missed you on the trip back east. I seem like only a little while when you stopped at Susan's on the way west and we all had dinner.

Hope the new venture works out for all of you!

WooHOO! Terry and Marie are back near my neck of the woods. You both have my very best wishes and the south welcomes you with open arms.

Cool. This greatly improves the chances to meet up with you folks again. Next time I head towards your direction, I'll be looking for you.

Good luck in your new jobs. Will Sophie be going to work too?

We're still working on that. We're still feeling like we got tossed in a blender, career and location wise...

I've found Sophie's mom.

I've found Sophies Mom, possibly a wayward sister.

So today the wife and I finalize the move into our old/new 1984 34' Limited. We are trying to commit to two years of full-timing. It will take us that long to save enough money to purchase some land and even then I have a hunch we will continue to "live the dream" until I finish building a home for us. This adventure is scary as hell. We full-timed last year on a location in Northern Minnesota on Lake Vermillion. It happened to be one of their coldest winters on record and we were in the coldest place in the U.S.A. according to the statistics. Hence, the reason we moved backed to California. Our old '73 Sovereign faired pretty well through that time and I was forever sold on the Alumidream. I ask you all to keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we try to full-time in Southern California. Its the crime not cold this time I am concerned about. I look forward to meeting you all in person one day. Thanks for the inspiration and goodwill.

Regards,
Kevin

Kevin,
We will keep you in our thoughts. We just left Riverside CA to come back east. Good luck with finding a good location to park it.
