Lifestyle change

When we started our full-timing adventure 4 years ago, we said that when one of us couldn’t drive then it would be time to come off the road. Sadly, that time has come and we now find ourselves closing the door to this wonderful chapter in our lives earlier than we imagined.

That sucks. Well at least you have many wonderful memories to carry you forward.

Best to both of you on quick and fair priced sale.

We've talked off the forum about your situation and Donna and I hope all the best for you and John in your new lifestyle. None of us ever know when something like this will happen. That's why we chose this style for us. Live like there's no tomorrow!!

I can attest that their rig is one that has been babied and meet the rockintom quality check sheet of approval. Someone's getting a good deal on this one.

All the best and stay in touch. rockin' and Ms. Donna

Just for Fun: We do have many wonderful memories of places we've been and the wonderful people we've met along the way. RVing people are truly a special group. We look forward to more traveling memories but this time by car.

Tom, thanks so much for the rockintom seal of approval lol! I think most of us who choose the full-time lifestyle are looking to live life to the fullest and see and do much as we can. After all, there are no guarantees as to how long any of us have here on this earth.

Safe travels to all.

Sorry to hear of John's medical issues. You will be in our prayers. It was great to meet both of you a couple of winters ago in Tucson and was looking forward to seeing you this coming winter.

Bill and Char, thanks so much for your comment.

Larry and Billie, We remember you both well. John is himself and feels fine. All the tests show nothing abnormal or problematic which is a blessing but frustrating at the same time. Enjoy the wonderful Arizona winter and sunsets. Who knows, if we get lucky in selling the rig, we might still be able to partake ourselves.

We have found that RVers are really great people but Excelers really seem to top them all. Thank you for all your nice comments both here and privately; we really appreciate them and you.
