Why Do We Make Plans???

It's often been said that we RVers make our plans in jell-o. Changes come most times because we find fun things to do that we hadn't planned on; other times it's because life throws a curve and we need to regroup.

Due to financial changes, we won't be able to travel this next year as planned. For those of you who have read the blog for awhile, this is going to sound familiar. We sat out during 2010 as well because of financial issues.

But, you know what? Even when we can't travel the way we'd like, this is still the best lifestyle going. In what other lifestyle do you have the flexibility to decide where to “hang your hat” that will be the most inexpensive for you? There is none. We can significantly lessen our expenses by sitting in one place which helps the bank account. You sure can't do that in a sticks & bricks.

So, we are grateful that we have this option and will take full advantage of it. Yes, we're disappointed we won't be able to meet up with friends as we'd thought. But, hopefully, there will be another time.

If you're going to be in southern Alabama any time between January and April, stop at the Escapees Rainbow Plantation – that's where you'll find us!

Oh, and thanks for your prayers and comments about my dad. His procedure went very well and the doctor believes this will greatly impact his quality of life.

Until the next time . . .


  1. Sorry I missed your call the other day! I'll catch you next time.
    I just wanted you to know that Mike and I are thinking about you guys and keeping your Dad in our prayers. Please keep us updated.


  2. Bummer - just when I was contemplating joining the wagon train to Texas. Regardless - I'm sure we'll meet up in LA and visit Big Daddy's!

  3. I'm sure that when we get on the road we'll have to stay in one place for long periods of time, but that still beats the typical daily grind!
