Yes, as of today, Monday 6/11/18, we are full timers! So what makes it official??? Well that is a different answer for every full timer. It could be the day you close on your house, the day you retire, the first day you begin to live in your RV, or the day you drive out of your driveway for the last time. We have read many fulltime RV blogs and each of them had a different answer.
For us, we have a couple qualifying reasons that add up to us declaring today as our first day as fulltimers. First off, it is the first work day that Rick and I are both retired. Rick's official last day was Friday and he has now joined me in the retired life. Secondly, this morning we signed the papers for the closing of our house, which will officially be on June 29th, however, we will be on the road in a different state. Finally, we drove out of the driveway for the last time. We packed everything up and have moved to our moochdocking location about a half hour away at my Dad's next to the barn. It was bittersweet, and a few tears were shed, but we are excited to see what the next chapter brings!
After getting set up, Rick was off to a family fishing excursion on Lake Michigan. All of the kids went in on it for a Christmas present for his dad. Rick has many good memories of fishing on Lake Michigan with his dad when he was young so this was a great time for the family to get back out on the water together. It was a good time had by all and they caught a couple salmon and trout.
After we spend a couple days here visiting with family, we are then off to our first camping spot at Harrington Beach and then making our way to SW MO to hold a mini Army reunion with Rick's buddies he was stationed with in Germany.
