We've been reading other blogs for some time. Have always envied people that "fulltime" (No stix & Bricks). Last spring while on the way home we started discussing how much we enjoyed being vagabonds and how much more of the country there is to see. Since Michigan (our home base) has what seems like a 7 month long winter, we decided to make Florida our homebase and go travelling all summer. Kind of a reversal of our present lifestyle. It's a serious and scary thought to give up stix & bricks but a lot of people do it. We've decide to sell our beloved 24ft Tioga motorhome. We will get a wee bit bigger rig, probably 30 to 32 ft and probably travel with a car so we can tour a bit more economically. Those bigger rigs only get 8 to 10 MPG on a good day. We've been selling a lot of stuff this summer (where the heck did we get all this stuff?? LOL) . It's been keeping us busy ! After 1 of our moving sale weekends we were tallying up our sales one evening and came to the realization that we'd sold our couch AND bed.Hmmm, where shall we sleep?? Our large Coleman Air Mattress to the rescue. Kinda reminds ya every night that "We're really gonna do this"!! Of course we can always sleep in the motorhome too. (until it's sold) We are planning a travel weekend in a few weeks to check out several motorhomes we've seen on Craigslist. If our rig isn't sold by Oct we'll take it to Florida and pick up a different rig in Florida.(lots of good deals down there) Next spring, before hurricane season in FL, we will start heading to the midwest to "Live our dreams as time goes by quickly" ..we've got a lot of people to see out West. I hope everyone enjoys our Rolling Earthquake Blog. Stick around as the adventure unfolds.
