I was going to take a friend out looking at RVs today because she's never been in one. However, we caved in to the lousy weather and decided not to go. Can you believe it...Seattleites not wanting to go out in the rain. The only time I seem to like rain is during a monsoon in Tucson. That's one of the reasons I'm going to go full timing in May, 2011, to get away from the weather in the Northwet (not a typo). Originally, I was going to be gone before winter arrived but here it is almost November, I have a house full of stuff and no RV.
I've been looking for community, specifically a 55+ community in Tucson that's been calling my name for a few years. I went and checked it out and loved it but when I thought about buying a house there I felt trapped. Plus the HOA fees were out of sight. For two-thirds less money I can buy a pretty decent Class A motorhome and go wherever I want. I've also come to recognize, through reading blogs, that there is definitely community in RVrs and I want to be part of it.
Without thinking my decision all the way through, I went and put my house on the market to lease. I inherited my house from my dad about a year and a half ago. He and mom lived in it almost 40 years. Guess what? There's 40 years of accumulation to go through. Not only that, I've been fixing up the house because it got to the point where dad could no longer keep up. Then I realized that I wanted to enjoy the changes I've made to the house, which are significant. So that's another reason I'm still here. I also cancelled out on leasing my house, for now.
Then there's probably the biggest reason of all why I'm still here...I DON'T HAVE AN RV. Unless I come across something I like better, the one pictured on my blog is the model I want.
I hope I haven't lost you as I rambled on. Maybe I'm trying to cover too much on this first post, but this is my story. I'm reading a couple other blogs of future RVrs and I'm really enjoying them. You ladies have inspired me and now that I have my own blog I can sign up to follow you (I hope I said that right since I don't have the lingo down yet.)
Happy traveling everyone!!
