Jun 2, 2016 - Citrus Springs, FL

We made it! We are back at Diana's sister's home, Ken and Shirley, where our Motorhome has been resting for the last 1 1/2 months. The motorhome fired up fine, but the generator to keep the central air working did not want to keep running, a must in Florida this time of the year. Called a service we had used before for our AC making noise. He was unable to fix the problem, so we made reservations at a campground near a RV service center in Wildwood, Fl. for Saturday.

Ours is underneath our bedroom on the back of the unit. This will probably cost us. Glad to see Shirley up and around. Shirley is Diana's sister. She suffers with Crohn's disease and has had a...

Apr 1, 2001 - Retirement

In April 2007 Judy and I travel to Florida we were going to spend 14 days at two different Timeshares in Orlando. Doing some research on the internet we found a promising area 90 miles north east of Orlando for a possible retirement location. Citrus Springs has a reasonable cost of living and a very low crime rate. Found this house on two lots, and we put in bids on two additional lots. Our bids for the house and lots were accepted and we now owned our Retirement home.
