Starting a New Phase of Life

That would be Kevin, not us. :) Those of you who have been following our blog know that our son, Kevin, is going through a divorce; therefore he has been seeking a new direction. He decided that he wanted to buy an RV and a truck and begin full-timing. Now, his full-timing experience will be much different than ours. He is a soldier, so he is employed and won't be traveling in his RV. However, since he does not own a stix & brix, he is a full-time RVer. :)

He found the RV that fits his needs last week. It's a beauty – a 2002 35' King of the Road fifth wheel. It's in great shape and will allow Kevin to keep his three, yes THREE, dogs with him.

Yesterday the hunt for the truck came to fruition. Kevin & Randy took a four and a half hour drive to Oklahoma to check out a truck Kevin had found online. (Gosh, I've not been alone for that long in years, I think!) It was everything he wanted and he was able to negotiate the price he needed. So, he is now the proud owner of a 2007 Dodge Ram diesel dually.

All he needs now is an RV site to set up on! Sites are hard to come by right now, but he's on the waiting list for the campground we're in. We're hoping that something will open up soon.

Kevin is excited about the way life is shaping up for him. Many of you have been supporting Kevin and us with your prayers, emails and calls so I wanted to share this good news with you. Please continue to pray for us as Kevin continues to adjust to his new life. We appreciate each of you and are grateful to have you in our lives

Until the next time . . .

    It's always so neat to see someone at the start of their journey, as I'm still in the research and prep phase of mine. Best wishes to Kevin and thanks to him for his service to our country!
