We have changed a bit

Those who have followed us for awhile know that we moved from a big 4 bedroom home with a built in pool to an RV adventure. We had joked as our 5 kids were growing up that we were going to get an RV and park at each of their homes, then when they got tired of us they could pay for our gas to the next one’s home. We have kids that live in Indiana, Ohio, Washington state, and Texas.


We decided when our youngest finished college that we really wanted to do it. The kids were all busy with their own lives and we could travel and stop in to visit them all at the same time. We didn’t really let them pay for our gas.


Then we realized we should really have a small house as a base home. So we now have a very small house with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. It is quite a change from the big house we were used to, but then we are gone a lot. Our youngest son isn’t married so he lives in the house and takes care of things while we travel.


Then Covid hit and we were stuck. Fortunately we were able to get back to home base just in the nick of time and stocked up with supplies. Like everyone we were shocked at how long it lasted and how bad it was. But, we were safe. Now 2 years later and 2 years older, it is harder for us to travel in the RV cross country like we had been. We still use the RV, but for shorter trips and it is great when we set up at a flea market. We now fly when we go to Seattle or Austin.


We still travel but our interests have changed a little. We like visiting vineyards and winetasting. We’ve gotten interested in old churches and their history. Maj has always been a history buff, so we’ve taken up visiting historical sites.


Our website has changed a bit to compensate for the changes we’re making. Rather then listing all the things we do in each state we are focusing more on the things that interest us today. Oh, and I shouldn’t forget birds! We have taken up bird watching.


I think you will still enjoy following us as we take shorter RV trips, fly out of state and have more personal and fun stories.

  1. I think it is wonderful you have some similar enjoyments. I really enjoyed the winetasting trips I took in South Africa–they have incredible wines and it was always so much fun with my friends. I am a thousand or more miles from any decent wineries now. 😦
    I love history also, and visiting historic places. Maybe one of these days we will run across you at one! I like to go to flea markets, but wanting to do the work to be at one to sell is more than I want to take on.

  2. I really enjoy following you guys no matter where you go, or how you got there! One of my favorite blogs. I have slowed down a bit and very much like being home these days. A four-bedroom home is huge, and you have five kids, wow! Be safe, guys! ❤️

  3. Glad to hear you are still enjoying life and travelling even if it’s different from what you planned. Covid affected so many people is a thousand different ways. Good to see you both looking so happy

  4. la pandemia ha cambiato un po’ la vita di tutti, ma quest’anno pare che sia tornata un po’ di vecchia tranquillità, almeno qua in Italia sul fronte dei viaggi, gli hotel sono tutti esauriti, segno che le cose tornano ad andare bene. Io in camper non ci sono mai andato, sono per gli hotel. 😊👍😉

  5. Thanks for the update. You’re not alone in changing your habits during the pandemic. People of all ages have made changes in their lives. Jon and I still have travel plans and hope to be ‘back on the road again’ soon.
