For the past year, I have been fixed based in Jacksonvile, FL as I worked an 'interim' assignment at St. Vincent's Medical Center. When I came here, I thought I would be gone by Christmas. How things came to be this way is a very long story. The short version is when you make your living consulting, whatever you expect in a particular situation, you can almost rest assured what you encounter will be different. Frequently, that difference is better.

We have been RVing for over 30 years. In those years, we spent on average around 30 nights per year in the RV and traveled around 5,000 miles. Over the past year, I have spent around 225 nights in the trailer and with a couple of short ventures away from the campground, the trailerhas been towed less than 300 miles.

The other thing I have discovered is the difference between a trailer made for full-time use vs. one made for weekend use. The trailer we had before would not have stood up to the continuous use of the past 18 months.

We will soon be making a trip home, rest for a couple of weeks then on the road again for a trip to VA.

Thanks for following our travels. Stay tuned
