I remember when I hit the Publish button back in the very beginning of this blog. It made me kind of nervous, not knowing if anyone would read my post, or if I was being silly thinking anyone would be interested in me and my desire to buy a motor home and the steps I'd be taking to get ready to live in it full time with Katie. I remember when I first saw I had a Follower, Karyn Lee - thank you Karyn Lee for noticing us way back then and hitting the Follow button - I couldn't believe I had a Follower! And she didn't even know me! I was thrilled.
That first post was published Sunday, August 8, 2010. Three and a half years ago. Wednesday, June 1, 2011 Katie and I moved into The Palms and starting our first full month as full-time RVers. About 10 months after my first blog post. That's not very long, but it sure seemed like forever at the time. And here we are 1,000 days later.
Boy, has it been great! I've learned so much, met so many people, lived in so many places, and killed so many mice. That part wasn't great, but on the whole, there isn't much I would have changed, and I've never doubted that this is the life for me and Katie. At least for now. Each year I enjoy living in The Palms more, and I'm finding every year easier than the last because I've found places I like to be and will go back to my favorite campgrounds again this summer.
As I've said many times, I'm not living a full-timing lifestyle to travel or sight-see as many - probably most - full-timers are. I want to just live in different places without having to buy and sell a house every year or two.
And I'm so happy to have my little sidekick, Katie with me. She's such a trouper! I wouldn't have enjoyed this journey nearly as much without her, that's for sure. She's a great companion, my protector and notifier of incoming people and dogs, and gets me out for walks at least three times a day. She is such a little love.
Thanks to all our Followers, and also to our readers who are "lurkers." You've all added to our pageviews - I really appreciate your interest in our journey, your patience with my frustrations and rants, your advice when I needed it, your kind corrections when I had something wrong, and your friendship through these years on the road - in person and in print.
I love landmarks - and I can't wait to write this post again after 2,000 days on the road - and One Million Pageviews.
From Me and Katie, have a great Tuesday, everybody! :)
