Currently in Kerrville TX (Low 8 Breezy in the Morning (Windchill of -7), Sunny and Quite Cold High 31)
Subtitled: Hanging up the Keys (Sorta)
After 13 years 3 months of living fulltime in our RV and towing it with a 2010 Ford F-350 Dually (which was our only vehicle). We had a great time taking short trips from one place to another towing our home with us. It was an incredible journey but the years, various health issues, and our age have taken its toll. So we just traded our F-350 in on a 2023 Hyundai Tucson Limited AWD.

So what does the future hold? We plan on living most of the year centered around winter in our RV parked at where it has been parked for the last 3 plus years in Kerrville Texas. The rest of the year we will travel in our SUV to/from the Kansas City area and Iowa to visit friends and family centered around summer. While in KC we signed a lease in a 55+ community for a 1 bedroom 1 bath 740 sq ft unit. So combined we have 1140 sq ft 2 bedroom 2 bath living, just in 2 different places. Before we left in November we started furnishing the bedroom and partly the kitchen and bathroom so that when we get back there next year we'll have a bed to sleep in and a TV to watch.

What this means for us exactly is not really that much if you consider we recently stayed parked in Kerrville for 4 years. As far as insurance goes you are considered a fulltimer if you live in an RV for more than 150 days which we will easily do. 

We are looking forward to entering the next phase of our lives, no doubt the comfort going back and forth to the Midwest will be much better in the SUV and the trips will certainly be shorter. After we get settled in the new apartment next year we envision being able to travel to some of our favorite places we found while RV'ng, but in an SUV/hotel mode of travel.

We plan to periodically blog about our progress in our new phase of our lives.

Till next time,

 Currently in Kerrville TX (Low 47 Mostly Sunny, Getting Colder, Very Windy High 49)

Meet Probie, the kitten who came for Christmas, with credit to the great book from Cleveland Armory and secondly to NCIS. 

We had told ourselves that we were not going to get another cat, much less a kitten. Our neighbor here in the park mentioned that he was feeding a couple kittens and an older cat. Bob was feeding other feral cats in a different area but these cats kept themselves separate from each other. One day a kitten ventured over to our place. Now the neighbor had let the kitten in and it investigated the surroundings and came right back out. So we thought nothing of it when this kitten wanted in our place. For the first few times the kitten came in, walked around and left. Then the fateful day arrived when the kitten adopted us and decided to stay inside. 

We gave it a couple days and sure enough the kitten decided living inside was pretty good. Now the kitten needs a name and being fans of NCIS and the fact that the kitten would be on probation for awhile we named her Probie. Well Probie, although a typically rambunctious kitten, has passed the probationary period and will be going for her first visit to the vet next week.

Speaking of Christmas we got a new lighted tree.

Merry Christmas to all!!

Till next time,
