Moved our home Saturday

Last September we sold the S&B and bought a 2003 Bounder 38N. Karen is still working so we wintered in Peoria, Illinois to be close to her work. Thanks to the mild winter we did fine. Stayed at an RV park that had full hook-ups for $450.00 Mo. Everything included except propane.

My wife works at Keystone Steel and wire. They have a private park for employees. Has a club house, a couple of small lakes and a small RV park located in an area of tall oak trees. The sites have full hook-ups but
water is only on during non freeze months. Mid March or early April through October or November. The cost is $1000.00 a year and we pay electric. Made the move Saturday, got a good site and can come and go as we like. The site is ours for the season. Karen will retire January 31st so we will have to go back to a year around site for a couple months and then it's off to warmer weather. She has never liked the cold and I can't take it anymore. Anyway think this will be a good summer site for us. Very peaceful and we can take some vacation trips and always have our site waiting for us here.

Oh by the way. Walked down to the lake Sunday evening to toss a spinner for about half an hour. Caught a six pound bass a smaller one and a crappie. Dinner for tonight!

Praying for the safe return of All our troupes. They serve so we may enjoy the things we have and do.

We've been FT for over a year now, no regrets. Had a great winter here in SoCal.

We will be moving north to southern Oregon for the summer on May 15th. Looking forward to pulling up anchor and seeing new scenery.
