Ill Health makes RV better...

We were unable to get to points South this winter because of Hubby's unexpected health emergencies but now the doctors have suggested shorter and close to home trips to help him recover. Their reasons include the stress free environments in most campgrounds, the removal from the daily stress of the regular house and life, and very importantly...the small square-footage of the RV. Hubby can get around easily from bedroom to bathroom to living room without much trouble and he can hold onto the walls and furniture as he makes his way slowly from area to area.

I am planning the trips for the season and look forward to meeting some of y'all in our travels.

Hopefully we will see some of you in Indiana in June and Vermont in July and then we will play it by ear.

Thanks to all of you for your support and suggestions.

Always thought the RV was the prescription (Rx) for life's stresses.

Glad he's recovering and y'all are getting to use the RV.

Faith we'll keep Bob's recoverey in our prayers. We have our reservations for Vermont FMCA rally already. Don't know about Indiana. Probably not. See you in July or maybe sometimes in Normandy Farms. We are there April vacation and Father's day.

I still remember the first time I spent the night in a Membership campground (NOTE: I'm not pushing membership camping here) We had taken a few trips before but this was just a weekend, no special occasion, Just my regular scheduled double (4-day) weekend, (I got one every 3 weeks, Due to a very complex schedule that takes years off one's life)

I had a dream.. It was a good dream but I had a dream, And I awoke recalling that I had dreamed (though I can not tell you what it was).

First time in years.

Yes, the Stress is LESS, way Less.

Home is where I park it!
