Where Does the Time Go?

Once again the time just escapes us, working these 12 hour shifts for the 30+ days, November is just about over. The weather has been either wet or freezing temperatures which is making our bones a bit more achy. We love all the people we are meeting, we met a couple who are full-time wannabes, we had a great chat with them. Others we meet are really interested in our lifestyle and want to hear about all of our stories, we pass out our cards for them to come and visit our life.

They seem to be mostly curious about, how hard it was to give up all the STUFF? At least for us, we are truly simplifying, we do not need all the bells and whistles on our rig, we don’t use a tow vehicle and it is not a big rig. Quite honestly, we do not miss any of it at all, until like the other day when we went over to visit one of our other lots and went inside their huge Class A. Having room to invite guests in without being crammed into our rig is really nice but do we need the added expenses that come with it? NO! So, we will continue to find new ways of simplifying our lives and turning as green as possible. One of the reasons we have an inviting outdoor area, so friends can come by and sit awhile.

We have been experimenting with different cameras, we continue to buy new ones, only to send them back because they are not what we want. A few years back we bought a Sony A200 and we love it so we decided instead of buying all these other cameras, we would invest in our Sony A200. Went online to Amazon and went crazy with new lenses, filters and other gadgets to get a different view. Took the time today to play a little with some of our new gadgets. We have more gadgets on the way, so stay tuned.

I like cameras too but found my Canon SLR with different lenses usually stayed home when I went places. So, I downsized my camera by selling my Canon and and all the equipment I had on Craigslist and bought a Sony HX1 and love it. It's small enough to fit in my purse but has a larger zoom than my Canon lenses.

I like your artistic photos of the Christmas trees. I would say that your camera and (and its accessories) is a keeper! I appreciate your thoughts about the ease of having a smaller motorhome. We have a 36 foot motorhome and a tow car, and there are many places that we can't go, it's harder to get gas, the tires are bigger and impossible to change by ourselves, etc, etc. So stick to what's best for you!

We have a 30ft 5th Wheel and find it plenty big enough. Though we did simplify and get down to what fits here we sometimes feel like we still have too much stuff.
