Smile New Member -parked in TX

Home is where we park it. We are presently parked at our son's in Saint Hedwig. Would rather be fishing on the gulf, but helping to set up a mobile for our daughter to move here from CO.
We spend 5-6 months in Mesa, AZ, for the Choreographed Ballroom Dance Season. It starts Nov 1st and ends Mar 31st.
We started fulltiming in 1992 when my husband retired. We stopped in Aransas Pass, TX, to fish, bought a boat, then had 5 granddaughters who wanted to fish with Grandpa. One bathroom and 5 girls does not work. We bought a 2b/2b mobile home in a Sr Park and had motorhome for a bunkhouse. All of a sudden we were down to 1 granddaughter. Put the mobile up for sale and it was gone in 2 wks. We were free again to roam.
When we started we traveled alot - before we started Dancing. We have been in all but 2 of the Conus states -WA & OR. Have been in all but 3 Provinces of Canada. Have been in over half the states in Mexico, and drove through to Panama City, Panama. Hit every country but Belieze.. We drove to Guatemala and spent 8 wks in language school so it would be easier traveling south of the USA border. We have found that no matter where you travel, you get what you give. We start with a smile and friendly conversation. Guess I rattled on but we have loved our travels and wish everyone see the beautiful sights, meet the warmest people and smell the georgous flowers along the way.

Welcome to iRV2!
Just getting used to answering and then the reply is limited. Lots of friends hve hobbies to do in each state. That is fun. We don't travel as much now that we dance, but still try to explore some. We found a book at a yard sale titled - "What's Made Here". That is a fun book to read and find places. Wherever we go we like to see Museums and any places that give tours. Just enjoy and try not to hurry. You don't have to go far to explore places. We used to read all about a city before we visited and each make a list of what we would like to see/do. This is fun with kids and grandkids to do also. Then compare and be sure to do the ones both like and a few more.

Welcome. I'm impressed with your traveling experience! WOW. I love ballroom, but am not skilled, just love to dance with my hubby.

I have friends who talk of a square dance circuit, is there such a thing for ballroom too?

What we do is Choreographed Balroom. Everyone is doing the same figure at the same time. There are 6 levels and you attend classes to get where you personally want to be - no competition. However, as you get to the higher levels you need to sign up and pay a yr ahead of time to attend some of the weeks, or weekends, as they fill up. There is also Square Dancing and classes are given and you work to the level you want as well. I am not sure the names of the levels, something like Basic, A-1, A-2. Either one is very good exercise for the brain as well as the body. My husband turned 80 yesterday and this hopefully will be our 8th dance season at the 5/6 level in Mesa, AZ. You can goggle either one for the area you are in and come up with clubs and information. Hope to meet you on a floor someday, dancing with a smile!

Is that like Round Dancing? Where there is a caller and everyone follows along but it is ballroom rather than square dancing?
