2010 has come & gone, and we are still land-bound. Many of our other goals for 2010 have been reached, but not full-timing – yet. As I re-read my end-of-year assessment, I caught myself and had to edit some words. Funny, how we don’t even realize what comes out of our mouths !
Career-wise, we exceeded our expectations – so that is a good thing. Other goals such as finances, we are doing better with
than expected. Health-wise, all is well. RV-wise- we took a side-road and purchased a 1978 24′ travel trailer that needs remodeling.
“The Rambler” is NOT the ideal full-time rig, but it’s been a hoot fixing her up and then checking her out on weekends. We LOVE the look of classic RV’s and have discovered that she is better insulated than our 1996 fifth-wheel was.
Thanksgiving we spent at Tombstone Territories RV Park in 25 degree weather, but we were VERY comfy with flannel sheets, a down comforter and a space heater. In our previous rig, we would have been miserable all night.
Our 2nd trip out to the Benson KOA the temp dropped to 30 overnight and -again- we were very comfy with our set-up. “They don’t make ’em like they used to” rings true for RVs as well as other items.
New Year’s Eve we will be heading to a state park near Tucson so we can ring in the New Year Native American style at the annual Pow Wow.
EDIT: 03-2012 … the Rambler is now for sale. We are asking $4000, looking for someone who will appreciate her and enjoy weekends or long campouts in a well-built, albeit vintage RV.
