Haven't Gotten Very Far

“You guys sure haven’t gotten very far” We hear that from a lot people lately. It’s true, we haven’t gotten very far. The truth of the matter, we have encountered a few things that have kept us close to home.

The road will still be there when we’re ready. There are just times when we need to return to our roots to take care of business or be available for a friend.
Those people that laugh and say that we haven’t gotten very far are some of the same people that told us we were crazy to even think that we wanted to fulltime. I still don’t understand why those people can’t be more supportive.

We had already planned to be back in this area in early November so Dawn could take care of some medical issues. Dawn has Graves Disease and has to have blood work done every six months. So our plan now is to stay in this general area until after her doctor’s appointment.

Travel Safe Dawn and Denise

  2. Ya know what? What other people think doesn't matter! It's your life. You get to call the shots. They can say whatever they want. There are plenty other that will support you. I'm one of them! :)

  3. the whole purpose of full timing in my books is to do what you want and be where you want when you want...so it doesn't matter how far you 'get'...your still doing what you want to do...the road isn't going anywhere so it will still be there when you are both ready. I also have graves disease so I understand the need to be close to your personal doctors to have the required tests done.

    like I always say "you will get there when you get there"...:)

    stay safe and enjoy

  5. I knew you had reasons for not moving on down the road. It's just a shame that the weather has been so miserably hot for you while you take care of business.

  6. Full timing isn't about seeing how far you can get, its about moving at whatever pace you want to go.

  7. Don't feel bad. We haven't gotten very far either, but I guess that's the good thing about full timing. You are flexible.

  9. The road will be there. Sometimes you just have to take care of things. Same with us- we did not plan to spend the summer in the TX heat but we have some commitments and things that needed doing. We are headed to Branson for a rally Sat and will be coming back through last week in Aug or first week in Sept. Keep letting us know where you are and maybe we can meet up.

  10. I figured there had to be a reason you were staying in that awful heat. Sure hope things cool down for you.
