    First day of retirement. Woke up this morning with nothing to do but all the Honey Do's I been dodging. Just wanted to forewarn everyone we are starting to plan some trips. So keep an eye out for that Ford with the Montana broke down on the side of the road. I'll gladly except a tow from a Dodge or Chevy! :laugh: Have been asking DL a lot of question on trip planning and choosing campgrounds. We basically have only camped in our area all these years. So will have lot's of question on that subject. To all our friends on RVUSA. Hope to see Ya on the road somewhere ;) :) .

    Way to go Shadow :bleh: Congrats on making retirement. Never had a bored day since I retired in 02. Doing just what you want takes a lot of nothing :) maybe we'll meet up somewhere out there. Just watch for a HR towing a Chev tracker with nash on the tracker tire cover. Said that wrong I mean a Chev tracker pushing a HR Ford MH :eek: :laugh:

    I have been retired for 13 years(is that lucky) and never have time for what I want to do, too many honey do's. I have been RVing for over 44 years and as trouble for a bit more. This winter was our first long term and didn't really forget anything we needed, wanted maybe. Clothing was the hardest to sort out as we were in for all purpose 4 season camping. We had been on several overnight week type trips in the MH and that got us the cookware, and normal living items, really not too different than the home just scaled down on numbers. After read all the post here and other sites we had too many items and did scale down a bit and figured we could purchase anything else we needed on the road. Just never get stressed. it's easy on the road iiiiiiiiiiiffff one does not put unrealistic time limits on where you need to be.

    Congrats Butch, I am sure Shirley will keep you busy!!

    Hope you can make it East sometime and we can meet up. I won't be retiring any time soon, so I am sort of stuck close to home. (for now)

    Thank for the congrats gang. Chelse if you do get to Texas again call us so we can meet up. Ken, you probably will see us this fall. Have family in Maine to see. Can't use the work excuse. :laugh: Carol we are going to the casino Sun. and Mon. to celebrate. Can get you a free room if you guys want to come over. Good tips Len thanks. And brodavid, that picture there is quite an upgrade from your last ride you had posted. One question, when planning a trip. What method do you use to plan your route. I hate to keep bugging Tex for his route planning service. :eek:

    Shadow, Maine is on our to make list also but think we'll try to catch the western states we missed first. East coast camping is just about to get out of my budget :(

    Yipes! Does that mean it's real expensive? We were just going to make a three week trip from southern IL to Maine and back again. Hoping not to overdo on our budget. Looking to stay at as many military campgrounds as possible.

    ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Maine campgrounds do cost a bunch, but it is a great place to see and well worth a RV trip

    Butch, like I said before, the best route to take when retired and you have the time is just to point the RV in the direction you wish to go and go. Well maybe in the GPS era just put the final town/city or address and pull the trigger on fastest or shortest route. Have fun. When you make detailed plans they seldom work. Seat of the pants navigation is the funnest. :laugh: :bleh:
