Weekly Update: 01-18-13

Thanks for all of your comments.
Welcome to new followers Mike and Dee.

We were busy this week taking care of a few administrative matters, firming up travel plans, going to the movies and going to the Tampa RV show (twice).  Judy and I had to break out our cold weather jackets and jeans for two cold weather days – the temps reached freezing Wed. AM.

We have decided to switch our state residency from GA. to FL. Florida has a friendlier taxing policy than GA., which means we will have more money in our pockets at the end of the day. The major expense of the change is the titling of our vehicles and rv ($800.+).  We should have this completed in a week or so. Then we can register to vote, completing the process.

I went to see the movie “Lone Survivor” on opening day. Being an avid military history buff I had read the Marcus Luttrell  (Lone Survivor) book which the movie was based on. For the most part the movie was true to the book but there was some “Hollywooding” up.  Click here for the movie TRAILER.

Wed. we traveled to Tampa with Jim and Dee to see what was new in the RV world at the Tampa RV Show. There were plenty of RVs to check-out and dream about. Judy and I vowed to keep playing the lotto. We even ran into some RV friends from the road, Nancy and Neil and Howard and Linda. Judy and I got around to finally getting us a wooden RV sign! The sign was not completed by the time we left the show so we returned Friday to pick it up. We already had plans to visit our non-RVing  friends Treva and Bill who live in Tampa so it wasn’t too inconvenient. I think they enjoyed going to their first RV Show.

That is all for now.

  1. Sorry we didn't get to see you at the show. Looks like you managed to get in plenty of visiting there anyway.

    The sign looks great!

  2. I read your post about your position in Madra. Steve and I did our first workamping job in Oregon and loved it. We used to go to Maupin to a restaurant called Imperial River Company. The restuartant sits along the Deshutes River. Very scenic!

    1. We are looking forward to the job at Pelton Park. I hope it won't be too cold when we get there in early April.
