Hi all, We started full timing last June when we moved into the 5th wheel. We put our house on the market Aug 2004 anticipating that it would take several months to sell, it went on the market on Wed and we had an offer on Fri. we hadn't even packed a box. Moved out of the house into a rental that a friend had just bought, (luck) to live out the winter. I don't think I would like to spend winter in Fallon NV in the Laredo. Brrrr. When I turned 62 in Sept, we calculated that with my military retirement and SS check we would have more than enough to live on. So far our projections are true. My last day at work was 30 Sep. and we finally got out of Fallon on 6 Oct. We had originally planned to bum around southern AZ, NM, and CA for the winter months and spend most of our time in military campgrounds, but!!! We made spur of the moment plans to join a caravan to La Penita MX, leaving on 26 Oct. so went through Vegas saying goodby to family and got to Pichaco Peak on 21 Oct. Best spur of the moment decision we ever made. Spent 4 months in the La Penita RV park and enjoyed it immensely. We had to come back to the states a month early as we couldn't get one of DWs meds. but will plan better this fall. Right now we are in Yuma catching up on DR's appointments and waiting for the weather to warm up further north. The golf here in Yuma is great. Full timing has been my dream since my folks retired off the ranch and started full timing in 1971, and DW bought into it before we got married. It is one of the reasons I stayed in the US Coast Guard for 30 years.

Welcome aboard, Coast Guard...

Glad to see another military retired. Be sure to check the Military-Veteran Forum for any info you need on military campgrounds.

I just returned from Tombstone. We stayed one night in Yuma. Was going to stay at the base, but they were full up. There was some BLM land just down the road behind a VFW post. When we pulled in, there were already many other RVers doing the same.
