The First Four & a Half Months

2023 Full-Time, Caribbean, Full-Time Travels, Road Trip

Where are we? Where have we been? What are our plans? Why are we so behind on the blog? So many questions but we’ll do our best to give you an update. This afternoon we arrived at Greg’s in Western Massachusetts and spent a pleasant evening with grandkids in the backyard. Since our last legitimate blog entry in late January, we’ve visited Saguaro National Park, Tombstone Arizona, Quartzite, T@Bazona, Petrified Forest, Santa Fe, Blackwater Draw, Lubbock Lake, Fort Worth, New Orleans, St Petersburg, Labadee, San Juan, St Martin, St Croix, and Coco Cay. We’ve had delightful visits with at least a dozen family members ranging from Santa Fe to St Croix, reconnected with a college roommate, and made lots of new friends along the way. Aboard Jewel of the Seas we not only got to visit various Caribbean destinations but as part of a party of forty dancers, we got to cut a rug every night! Then after retrieving our lost luggage, we found an out of the way full hookups campsite to isolate and recover after we discovered we’d contracted that nasty virus we’ve all been trying to avoid since 2020. Now we’re looking forward to backyard camping for a couple of weeks, hanging out in Ohio for a little bit, heading to North Carolina to reconnect with some former neighbors and hosting our final Deck Day, then heading back to Ohio for üCamp23. Finally, we promise to get caught up on the blog. We got behind for a number of reasons but we expect to slow down a bit and be able to back fill the awesome experiences of the last few months. Stay tuned as we venture on in this full-time travel adventure.

      We will definitely wave to your folks as we pass through and explore those locations, and of course think of you as we do. Hope you two and your kids and grandkids are doing well. It’s wonderful knowing you are following our crazy adventures.

    Great to hear from you? How was Santa Fe? Did you visit any parks or sites near there in New Mexico? I’m heading there in a week…any suggestions on places to go?
