Taking A Break

We’ve been in the camper for almost two years and it’s time for a break. We’ve not traveled to different areas for one reason or another, we just sort of got to Sherwood Forest in Kissimmee, FL and the folks there became instant family so we just stayed. It’s nice to have that flexibility.

As most know, we rented our house out in Pigeon Forge. Our tenants have bought and house and are no longer in need of ours. We got extremely lucky with our tenants as they took very good care of our home. Our fear is that the odds are stacked against us if we decided to continue to rent the house out and the next tenants would be crack heads. πŸ™‚

So we’re back in Pigeon Forge and really love being back in our home. The same with Sylvania, when we stayed at “Green Acres”. It’s nice being in a home with space. As I’ve said before, our camper is 285 sq. ft. and it took some adjusting but once we settled in, we loved it. I very rarely took baths prior to moving into our camper since I’m a shower kind of guy. Once I couldn’t take a bath, I suddenly wanted to take baths. πŸ™‚ Anytime I traveled for business I made sure the rooms I booked all had tubs. LOL!

Our camper is still at Sherwood and our family there is keeping an eye on it for us. We’ve already got our reservations set to stay with them again for the 2014/2015 winter season. And while we miss them very much, it’s great to reconnect and catch up with our friends here in Tennessee.

It’s amazing how much Pigeon Forge has changed in two years. It’s amazing how much life has changed in two years.

We’re working on what our next adventure is going to be and where…..but for now….it’s nice to soak in a tub and take a break.

Prior to August 28th, 2012 we had never spent the night in a camper or RV. Now we're full timers and have never looked back. If you've ever dreamed of doing the RV thing, do it. It's much easier than I ever imagined. The only thing I regret so far is not doing it sooner.
