Welcome to 2014

It always shows up each year right on time just like clock work whether we are ready or not, so I just go with it. No resolutions for me because I seldom keep them for long anyway. I do usually look forward to the new year though.
2013 worked out ok.  We sold the house in June after a couple of seasons of trying. From that time we started our full-timer phase. So far Judy and I have no regrets and are looking forward to our travel plans for 2014.

Sadly, though it means we  will not be able to back to our Blanton Creek campground position for the 2014 season. Judy and I will miss the friends we made there a lot. I am sure we will be stopping in for a visit.

We made our first long term travel trek from GA. to VA. and finished in FL. from Sept through Nov. We even had to deal with some of the issues on the road that seems to pop up at the most inopportune time. We learned that you just have to keep your wits about you and just deal with it. We all know “stuff happens”.

Fall Travel Route.

Judy and I are resting up here at Avon Park RV Resort in Avon Park, FL until we “hitch-up” and head out to the Pacific Northwest in mid March. We hope we will know if we are going to get a workamper position in Madras, Oregon in a couple of weeks. Our phone interview will becoming up soon. Of course it is not a bad idea to have a back up plan, which we do.

So, while I don’t have any New Year’s resolutions, I do have big plans for 2014. We will have to wait and see if things workout. Judy and I hope your plans for 2014 workout also!

That is all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.
Next blog: four or five days.


  1. You will absolutely love Oregon. It is a state for the eyes to take in!

  2. Oregon is a beautiful state. That is where Steve and I worked our first workamper position. It was great. You can always check out California Land Management for positions. They have them in several states. We have been in Winter Garden Florida for the holidays but leave Monday to head back to our motorhome in Lake Mead National Recreation Area. 2014 will be a great year for you! Have fun!

  3. We loved Oregon. Such a neat state.

  4. We never make resolutions either -- just can't seem to stick with them.

    Hope you get your workamper position in Oregon, and hope we see you again sometime this year!

  5. It's so great having you with us again this year in Avon Park. Good luck in the camping job this summer.
