One thing in life - when you loose a spouse the first thing that comes to mind.."I wish I had done more things together"..... Life is way too short.. Just tell her I do not want you to have any regrets...let's map out a PLAN together.....Create a PLAN that works well for your both...BUT if you have to go alone for a few trips - do so... Just do not loose touch.

Way too many people just retire - sit - and swallow pills for pains that probably would have disappeared had they moved their bodies more. That being said - I need to hit the road.

Blessings to you and the lady you care so much about.

long trip with wife

Careful what you wish for! My wife stayed home, took care of children, several times sent me off on motorcycle solo 600 mile/day 2 week journeys for attitude adjustment (stress relief). Recently retired, her turn! 26ft Itasca Sunstar, f-53 v-10 gas, basic 2 person class A, no frills. VA to Alaska with places between, 15,500 miles, 6 mnths, the only serious discussions occurred as she realized we were homeward bound being chased out of Colorado by treats of oncoming blizzards.

Upon departure overnighting in anything other than an established campground made her feel uncomfortable. By Alaska, it was WOW what a beautiful pull off, tried of cramped campsites with noise and television! I thought I would definitely fly her home to grandchildren, picking her up somewhere in the journey. On a cold drizzly evening camping on a rocky land fill called Homer Spit, I could do whatever I wanted, but she wasn't going anywhere without the motorhome.

Keep a Jet Blue account in her name so she doesn't feel trapped. Good luck!

If you want a good marriage you need to just tell her what she will be doing and donít take no for answer. Havenít you ever watched the John Wayne movie The Quiet Man?

This is an old post and from reading their other subsequent posts they've figured it out already and are enjoying RVing.

The last I heard the OP had to sell his RV to pay off his lawyer after his wife sued for divorce. The OP's wife got the house and a healthy monthly maintenance payment. The OP is still working his regular job but you can see him down at the local McDonalds where he works part time on weekends.

Threads like this really make me appreciate my wife. I just don't get it. These folks are more like dysfunctional roommates.
