Dec 12, 2013 - Home again.
12/12 The day starts after a very long day before at a truck stop just east of Harrisburg PA We get up at about 0800 and have some breakfast. I'm hopefull that the fuel treatment has worked. We start up, no problem and head for the highway. Once we hit the highway it starts acting up again, we can not get to more that 40 mph on the flat and level. We go a couple of miles and pull into a rest stop. We get a recommendation for a garage back near where we spent the night. So we go another 5 miles down the highway then head back the other...Jump to full entry
Sep 14, 2013 - Trial Run
Retirement done, 8/3/2013. Windshield replaced. Mods to the RV done. Trailer sold and car dolly purchased. Loaded out, that turned out to be a huge job. 9/11 The boys and I move in and spent out first night in the RV, "in the back yard". Lightning, thunder huge storm, but we all sleep and everything is dry, a good sign. Next day we head for Lebanon Maine (about 10 miles away) to an RV park. 3 days 2 of them rain but we learn alot. Nice place with a huge indoor pool, which we enjoy. I need a different trailer hitch as the dolly ramps are...Jump to full entry
Sep 7, 2013 - Changes to the RV
I need to get the window repaired it has an opening around the edge. After they "fix" it I need to get it replaced since it is broken now. I want to change the front of the RV to get rid of the huge box area that held the original TV and give a better view out of the front, both for the driver and people in the RV. I do it and it comes out good but a huge job, more than I expected. I have one Fantastic fan that does not work right and one regular RV fan with no fairing. I replace them both with two new matching Fantastic fans and matching...Jump to full entry

Many thanks to Libby for the hospitality!!! We're now ready to head out to begin our "full timer" adventure. Plan to leave tomorrow, Saturday morning. Been a while coming...should be an interesting time ahead of us! Weather is turning cooler here in the mornings....so time to head south. Everyone wants to know...Jump to full entry
Jul 15, 2008 - Holden, ME, to Berwick, ME
Happy Birthday, Dave!!!! Our travel day to Berwick wasn't a long one so we were in camp and set up plenty early to celebrate. During our time here we took a few trips to Wells Beach to check it out and have some gooood clam chowder. Then we took in Kennebunkport -what a neat little town! We missed seeing Senator McCain and Papa Bush by a day or two. Darn it! Our neighbors had seen Papa Bush at the Compound the week before we arrived. Again, the area is beautiful, the folks friendly, and the food great. Just waaaay too much snow and cold in...Jump to full entry
Jan 10, 2008 - Oops!!!....hold On!!!!....we Ain't Goin Anywhere Soon!!!!
#*%#*@# house sale has fallen through! Buyer decided that the foundation was in danger of collapsing...which it is not! May have needed a "way out". Anyway he viewed our magnificent house as having a potential to tip over....so he's gone. And we ain't! We've had a mason look at it and determine that it was fine with exception of a few small places that could be repaired at minimum cost. No big deal. Oh well...lit a fire under us to get things sorted, assigned, and ready for disposal or dispersal. This week of warm weather has helped me...Jump to full entry
