The Great Adventure is over. We covered 20 states in 10 months. It was a fun trip and we had a great time.

We had to end it abruptly last Sat, 02-21-09. We hitched up and turned the Dodge Cummins loose to zip on up to Ohio from Nashville, TN. We made it in time to be present when our new 6 lb, 9 oz, grand-baby boy came screaming into the world 5 weeks early (see album).

We found another Condo next door to the one that didn't happen and put a new contract on it today. We may be extended campers instead of full-timers yet.

PS Maybe the other condo was not supposed to be for you.

Re: Ohio in February

My wife and I love having parents close to us. They are a lot of help to us not necessary to help with care of the grand children, but the idea they they are close. They retired and moved five minutes from our home. This has helped them adjust to the new retired life. They felt they had a mission in life. the grand children helped them feel useful and helpful. They also purchased a condo, so they can travel as much as they want, and they do. They just lock up the condo and go. At times they are gone for months at a time. congratulations with the GB.

Re: Ohio in February

Thanks again to all. We are having fun visiting the new GB. We are still negotiating the Condo. We hope it goes through this time.

It's going to be 7 degrees tonight and the RV furnace is going gang busters. It never got above 23 degrees today. Propane is costing a bundle $$$$$. Fun times in the RV. :laugh: :laugh:

Re: Ohio in February

DL that the fun part of being full timers, u can move to a warmer area when you want. I know GB come first, but 7 degrees is to cold to be in a RV.I know propane is high the last time I filled my 100lbs tank ( est. 22 gallons) for the house fire place it cost me $100. And I am out of propane again, no I am not going to fill it any more for this year. :approve: . I will wait until next DEC to fill it. :laugh:

He is a cute little guy. :) :approve:

Boy the furniture and stuff for the stick condo are sure expensive. Seems like forever ago when we sold all to go full-timing. :laugh: It was worth it. Wouldn't change the decision to full-time for anything. Everyone should try it once or twice. :laugh: Great fun and good times.

DL- Are you originally from OHIO? I live in Galena, OH. which is just north of Cols. (25 miles). Just took my RV to Ron Potts RV dealer in Johnstown, Oh. to get car hooked up to be towed.
