Finally Decided

Finally Decided

by George & Peggy
(Millerstown, PA)

My wife and I (George & Peggy) have made the decision to sell our home and all personal possessions and head out on the road. We closed on the house May of 2016 and invested in a larger 5th wheel (we had a 30 foot) and upgraded to a diesel truck for towing.
We have been camping on a seasonal site in central Pennsylvania for about 6 years and are acquainted with small home living. We are currently on our way to a seasonal site in Florida and have traveled down the Interstate system towards Virginia and currently making some preemptive decisions due to the impending hurricane Mathew arrival.
We are intending to head inland to possible safer shelter area. We have emergency radio system and onboard navigation system in the truck and have a partial tank of fresh water in case of campground lose of electricity.
We are hopeful to travel (next spring) out West by the Northern route and see some of the major National Parks.
Would like to keep everyone posted on our travels and read some stories of fellow full timers.

Jan 28, 2017
Settled in for Winter
by: George & Peggy

Arrived in Florida (central area) in mid October and have enjoyed warm weather up until today (January 28, 2017) with temp's in the mid 50's with morning's in the mid 40's. Back in PA the temp's are a lot colder with sleet and snow causing driving difficulties for our grown children.

We stopped on the way near Baltimore, MD for our Great Granddaughters 1st birthday prior to resuming our trip to Florida. Prior to our leaving I had my right knee replacement competed and feeling great.

Picked up bicycle's for exercise around the park, doing a lot of sight seeing near Ocala, Inverness, and Orlando. Lot of flat land, and thousands of horses. Have met a lot of new friends from various states and Canada.

I keep wondering why more people are not doing this life style. Very little regret on the choice to become full timers, enjoying every moment.
