Our 19th Wedding Anniversary & Other Stuff

We have been full time traveling for 11 years as of February 1st which is more than half of our years being married and no signs of ever quitting this lifestyle…tweaking it maybe but quitting… never! We are still having the time of our lives!

We had planned a special treat in Quartzsite to celebrate our anniversary but since we had to wait on the part to fix Maggie and had to work we came up with Plan B…

This Sunday will be the last day of the Big Tent in Quartzsite which is the day they usually have some great deals so we will take off early and spend a few nights in Quartzsite shopping this week instead.

Things seem to be taking some uncomfortable but unfortunately some very familiar turns and we are not liking it at all. Maggie’s part came in but apparently the old piece needed to be pressed off and new one pressed on and we have searched all over for someone to do it and nobody has the ability. The guy that does work here at the park was leaving out of town and his press machine is down anyway. We were on the phone all morning and finally found one place that could so now we have to pay for a ride the 80 mile round trip…this is NOT at all what we had in mind…

We got so spoiled with life going fabulously smooth for us for most of 2015 that we do not like the hiccups that are happening so far in 2016 but we will stay on course, stay positive, knowing it will all get better soon.

It is so funny how when she is down like that with pieces of her under just lying on the ground for a few days as it was how uneasy it makes me feel. It’s that feeling of entrapment…unable to go if we wanted to but at the same time not planning to go anywhere. Do any of you ever get that feeling? It’s worse than hitch-itch which is something I always get just shortly after we arrive…travel is what we both love…new places…new people…love, love, love it!

Maggie is now ready for a road trip…it took some strength from Jerry but he finally got it all hooked back together and she is ready to roll. Life is good!

Know that feeling of helplessness. We had thirteen major issues that set us back in 2013. We almost reconsidered our RVing future. Glad we didn't. Now we are going the extra step.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.
