This is our first post of the new year. Wonder how long it will take me to remember to write 2018 instead of 2017. When you’re working, it’s a bit easier to track time, but when you’re retired, every day is Saturday or Sunday – but I’m certainly not complaining. There’s really no need to know the exact date, but when you write a check, people really prefer that you at least have the correct year. I’m working on that.
I remember my Mom telling me that it doesn’t really snow much at the shore because there’s too much salt in the air. It sounded like it could/should be true – but alas, it is far from true. The last snow storm brought 18″ to our neck of the woods, and it stayed around for a little too long. We’ve been talking about getting on the road again to try to escape some of this cold weather. I’m thinking it will be way soon – before the end of January. We’re going to head south and west. We’d like to get back to Quartzite, Arizona in time for the fiberglass trailer rally. Look at all of these trailers that look just like ours. Actually I’ve heard there may be up to 200 of them this year.
It should really be fun. We’re looking forward to stops in Florida, Louisiana, and Texas as well. Right now I’m basically making lists of what we have to bring. It won’t be like the first long trip where we needed, well, everything, and for every season. But we do need “stuff”, to last at least a month.
While looking through some papers for travel ideas on the route, I stumbled upon something I would like to share. I just love it, and have kept it since 2003 – 15 years. I don’t know who wrote it, but if you do, I would sure like to thank them for this very cool reminder about life.
THINGS WE CAN LEARN FROM A TURTLE
“When we wander into dangerous territories like the highways of life, our favorite defense of pulling inside and shutting out the world may not be the most effective response. So, instead of getting squashed, we may want to stick our necks out and run like crazy”.
Run little guy, run !!!
Stay tuned – next time, we’ll see you from the road.
