One door opened, another closes

Our life changed 2 yrs ago, hubby was laid off, and I had medical issues. So we fixed me, and sold our lives, went on the road and were to live happy ever-after...........
About a month ago, hubby gets a call from a company with an incredible job offer, the "once in a lifetime" job. Problem, Mom in AZ we travel the SW, and job in SE Texas.
Solution, sold MH, selling Mom's house and moving all to Texas, back to stick & brick for us.
You might as why we sold the MH. Well with this job, we are not going to be able to travel that much, and with tags, plates, insurance, upkeep, and storage it simply is not worth the money, we can rent a MH cheaper for what time off he will have.
So in 10 yrs or so we will try the retirement thing again, but in the meantime, I'm glad for the time we had, but Mom is getting up there and needs more attention, and so Houston here we come. I will still lurk here, and live through you all, but have hung up the wheels.

PS, something else good did come of all this, we sold the MH for only 1,000 less than we paid for it Cheap rental for 1-1/2 yrs

Sorry you've lost your wheels, but life has a way of 'messing' with us, whenever we think we have it figured out.

Hope the new job goes very well, and we'll keep the lights on for your return to the nomad life style.

Good luck.

There are lots of places to get away from it all near Houston so you can still go camping if you want. Won't be the same as your Tiffin but there are options.

Yep, just when ya think you've got it all down, it throws you a curve ball. Your RV-ing plans are just on hold for the present. Best of luck in TX, watch out for those hurricanes & don't be a stranger here. You're always welcome here, RV or no.

Congrats on the new job!! In this day and age finding a job is a pretty tough thing to do. You can always get another rv! Take care of family first then play. The Lord knows best!

.......We only get one deck of cards on this ride, family comes first and foremost. Congradulations on the new job, they are few and far between. Good luck, and come back often, you will be missed.

off again on again

For different reasons I have left and come back to RVing three times. I have owned 2 popups,1 hybryd, 4 TTs, and 5 class A MHs. I loved all of them. I did what I had to do at the time, and have loved every minute of. I hope you find your way back.
