Welcome New Followers

WOW! 105 followers! That is impressive. We’re always excited to see new people joining our followers list.

This blog isn’t very exciting to read at this moment. Our lives are pretty boring as we are not on the road yet.

We have spent the last few years researching and getting our lives in order so that we can take the BIG plunge at start our fulltiming adventure in the near future. We’re not sure when that will be yet. We still have some packing to do and we need to have a few more garage sales and we have to sell the car and the house. That seems like a lot but it isn’t compared to what we’ve already done.

The other day Dawn said she was curious how we’re going to feel once we get it all done.

That really got me to wondering. How will we react when it’s all done? Will we experience a temporary state of shock? Will we collapse and feel sudden numbness? Will we be overcome with pure excitement and be jumping for joy?

It doesn’t matter! We will deal with it. What matters, is that we’ll be done with that chapter of our lives and will be moving on to the next.

So maybe in the not so far future, our blog post will be filled with tales and pictures of interesting places.

Travel Safe
Dawn and Denise

  1. Haha! I know the feeling. :) We are also on the path to full-timing so it will be awhile before my blog is anything other than the humdrum of "normal" life as we prepare for the big move!!

  2. I imagine it will take some time to adjust, despite all of your preparations. We've had some adjustments and we're only snowbirds right now. No doubts, but adjustments. I remember when we moved to Georgia after 30 years in Florida and it was very strange at first.

  4. I hear ya! We should be picking up our motor home later this month but have not yet made the decision to full-time. That's still a little scary to me. We'll see how it feels once we go on a few adventures.

  5. After 6 years of living as full-time travelers, we look back at our beginnings and no matter how difficult they were, we are so very glad we began it. We are happier than we have ever been in our entire lives!

    We didn't blog back then but we had our own website where we wrote journals and newsletters on our early beginnings. It is so nice to read back on that time and really see just how far we have come. That is why it is very important to keep the blog going, even if you think it is not very exciting. We didn't think ours was either but we get so many comments and questions about our beginnings after they read our website stating it gives them encouragement to follow their own paths. So keep blogging!

  6. I think it might be like retirement, it happens, then the days go by and you are so busy and happy doing stuff that suddenly it has been a year! Looking forward to following along.
