Sometimes You've Just Got To Jump Right In....

Hello Everyone!

My husband Tim and I (Terri) decided to purchase a TT in December ahead of schedule. Our plan was to purchase one in the April/May time frame and then use it during the summer for an extended trip of 6 to 7 weeks with the hope of transitioning to full-time sooner rather than later.

Well so far that hasn't worked out as we planned. In fact the pieces have fallen together so fast that we are now going to begin our RV full-time adventure on June 29, 2019. Back in December we found a 2019 Forest River Salem Cruise Lite that was just too good a deal to pass up so we bought it ahead of schedule. The other component was my job as teacher/principal of a small private school. I brought in someone to assist with the administration of things and the new hire is so amazing that I am ready to pass the reins sooner than I expected. Now that our planned 7 week vacation doesn't really need to be cut so short and doesn't need to be a vacation at all but a whole new adventure opened up. Just like that....

Tim will continue to work remotely and I will keep my other part-time remote job. We have a renter lined up for our house beginning in July. In meantime, I have lots to do in order to be ready in time. I'm sure I'll have tons of questions!

To say that we are excited about this next chapter in our lives would be an understatement!
