Joyriding

Some times, we just like to put a little food in the fridge, take a bottle of wine, and take off in the RV overnight. We will drive till we can park somewhere and just set up for the night. We cook some food, have a little wine, and watch some tv. Next morning we get up make some breakfast, clean up and go back home. We are usually back home late afternoon.

So are we nuts? We spend a lot in fuel ding the same thing we could do in a car and hotel room, but it just seems like fun, even if we stay the night at a rest stop or a truck stop. Truck stops are usually more fun, lots going on, and some good greasy food.

Heck, we go stay in ours in the barn here at home sometimes. I'll go and grab a beer and sit in mine and watch the game or listen to some music or read a book. If I'm not camping, I'm pretending to camp. If I ever get to retire, maybe I'll get bored with it, but for now, I can't get enough.

AC went out in the S&Bs last week. Put the MH in the driveway, wired a 50 amp breaker into the garage, and we camped at home for almost a week till the repair guy got all the parts.

When mine is parked at the S&B, we call it "The Guest Cottage". Had friends stay in it lots of times.

Several years ago when I was flying Sandee and I would jump in the plane and fly to some of the local airport restaurant for the $40 hamburger. LOL Hey, we get these things to use them and as long as we don't wreck our financial security, Why not be NUTS? I think you and your wife are just living life in a way that others might envy but that is their problem. Keep on having fun!

We do this as well - going to a KOA 40 miles from the house this weekend for some R & R with grandson. Lots of amenities and we just enjoy feeling like we are on vacation for a brief period. Plus we can get up and still be local enough to attend our own church, have lunch, and head back home. This will do until we can retire and MH semi-full time. Love the RV lifestyle.
