I definitely reccomend the list! As we hope to be FT for at least 8-10 years we don't want the headaches of storing a bunch of stuff so I made a spreadsheet to list everything we own I sent it to my kids & said you don't have to wait til we die to fight over everything--put your initial on anything you want or it may go to EBay, Good Will or garage sale!!!

After that I got a spiral notebook & dubbed it my 'fulltiming' book. I have a page for each room or category (linens, garden/yard, games, cameras/spotting scopes, etc). I list the things that must go in the 5er, with specifics: 4-6 plates...4-6 bowls...etc i've used pencil & have made changes. Probably will make MANY more in the next year til we get rid of stix & brix.

Does the 'Limey' refer to English? My grandparents came from Englnad & Scotland.

Hi Linda
Yes I live on the english/scottish border at the moment I also work from home so I have all my office stuff to sort out aswell.

The ex took most of the household stuff so thats one job I don't have to do lol.

Only taking one case and a laptop + 500 gig hard drive with my mp3s with me,I will buy what I need in the US.

(I have no idea what I will need for the rv apart from flannel sheets lol).

When do you anticipate starting this adventure? How long will you be traveling here? As we're downsizing like crazy to get rid of stuff I could probably just about outfit your rv...including the flannel sheets. lol Too bad we can't connect.

One of my favorite castles was on the Scotish border...Dunbar..Dunbarton...? It was semi ruins. (my all time favorite was Warwick). It was YEARS ago-my ex was in the Navy & we were stationed in England for 3 years. I only WISH I'd been into genealogy back then--to think of the research i could have done!

Hi
I hope to fly into Tampa Fl Jan 09 and tour the US/Can/Mex for 2 years maybe 3 thats if I can get the visa's. Im not making any plans I'm just going to take it one day at a time.

Then I will ship the rv back to England see my kids etc pick up my bike and then load the rv up and head into Europe.

Ive been to Dunbar a few times very nice.

Paul, I think you are going to have a great time in our wonderful country. You might be surprised how many European you will come across. When we bought our coach in November we met a couple from Switzerland and another man from Germany. I have kept up with them through e-mails and they are having a ball. The one from Germany decided to sell everything in Germany and go full timing. He talked one of his friends to do the same as he. His friend is now on their way to the US to pick up his Newmar. He has been from Florida to California since November. The other couple, go back home for three months, work and come back for three more months. You get more for your dollars now and that helps with the price of fuel.

The hubby and I have been to Europe a few times and we were talking about how nice it would be to RV over there.

Buy the flannel sheets when you arrive in the US you'll love them.

Hi Lynn
We used to take the kids to florida on holidays but we always stayed in hotels or a villa the ex was a 5 star only lol.

Europe sounds great in a rv if you do decide to go there are quite a few brit sites that cover the best campsites etc do a seach for motorhome clubs or caravan clubs. I think the north of England and Scotland are the best places for touring holiday less crowded then the south.
