Back on the Preserve

Back on the Preserve

Craig and I made it back to the Disney Wilderness Preserve and Florida in March- right before things started shutting down due to Covid-19. We are volunteering again for a while and deciding what we will do next. It is a great place to wait things out since there are only a few of us here on 12,000 acres! We are enjoying the peace and quiet. Right now the Preserve is closed to the public, but things are starting to…

Gate Guarding in Texas

Gate Guarding in Texas

Craig and I are starting our second gate guarding assignment today in Texas. The first gate lasted around three weeks and we made a little over $6,000. It was a 24 hour gate with a guard shack. Our RV was parked next it. There was a generator to hook up to for power and water/sewer tanks. It was a busy gate and pretty remote. This gate seems a little less busy and we will be working out of our RV….

On the Road Again

On the Road Again

It has been a very nice winter here in Florida, but we need to start making some money again! So we are headed to Texas in April to do some gate guarding at the oil fields. It is good money, we get an RV spot and we will still be working together. Basically, we keep an eye on things and sign workers in and out. We decided to take the same route we took last March and April to San…

Goodbye

Goodbye

Today Craig’s coworkers threw a really nice party to say goodbye. He has a few days left of work and then we get down to packing the last of our stuff and the truck! People are coming Labor Day weekend to pick up the couch, TV and table. Then it will really be empty in here! We loved all the cute decorations and food. The highlight was the camper cake our friend made.

We Finally Found a Truck.

We Finally Found a Truck.

I feel like we have been looking for a tow vehicle for such a long time now. Finding a truck was actually harder than finding a travel trailer! Diesel trucks are very expensive here in the Massachusetts and New Hampshire area. I would do 150 mile searches every few days. We also looked in Florida since that is where we will be registering the truck and RV and living off and on. Since we bought the RV new, we  had…

We Bought an RV!

We Bought an RV!

Our RV shopping trip to Florida was a success! We went to look at several RV parks and a few RV dealers. We also went back and forth by email with some other dealers to make sure we were getting the best price we could. In the end we decided to order a new 2018 Grand Design Reflection 297RSTS from the factory. It will be ready for us to pick up in September. Grand Design seems to have a good…

Florida it is!

Florida it is!

One of the things you have to decide when planning on full time RVing is where your domicile state or legal residence will be. Florida was the top choice for us all along. We lived there for six years so we are very familiar with the state. My parents, our friends and other family live there. We will be spending our first six months living and working there. We plan on working and spending a lot of time in Florida…

September Trip Planning 

September Trip Planning 

The past few weeks we have been busy getting rid of furniture on local groups and selling things on Ebay. We are trying to get rid of as much stuff as we can before our September launch date.  In between work projects, I have been planning our September route down to Florida and our Florida to Wyoming route for March/April 2018.  We hope to travel down to Florida with just the truck and pick up the travel trailer there. I…

Another Quick Update

Another Quick Update

Craig and I decided to try and keep our original plans to start full time RVing this fall. We are going to take a trip to Florida in May to look at several RV dealers, a few RV parks and see what seasonal positions may be opening up for the fall/winter season.  We have been busy clearing out our living space. Every day we sell, give away and donate clothing and other items. Furniture will be listed in August. We…
