    Returning to the road

    In my early life, I was quite the nomad. Dad changed jobs a few times, and we moved around a lot. By the time I was in my teens the highway was in my blood.

    I was in different schools almost every year, and had been in 25 of the 50 states by the time we had fifty states.

    Well, work has kept me tied down for some time, limiting our mobility a bit.
    Now we enter a new era and I look forward to retiring.

    This will be our home, soon, and we will be able to move about at will, and drag our few remaining worldly possession along.

    Nice rig. Perhaps we'll bump into each other out on the road somewhere.

    Where will you put your books? And what's that with the chrome and the bumper in the foreground?

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Are you not sick of driving ?
    I still think it's an escape strategy for whoever wins the forthcoming election.

    Re: Returning to the road

    We have similar backgrounds in moving around. With the exception of a couple of years in NY state, the rest was in Los Angeles and Orange counties CA.

    Seems my dad found a career with a major retailer and just kept climbing the latter to better and better positions and we just followed the job.

    I never liked moving and going to different schools and always sought to settle down. Wife and I live in our last house 23 years, where I expected to retire. Been here in KS for like 12 years and like it or not, this is it.

    Can't imagine moving from state to state like you did. I can't imagine the life you plan on embarking on.

    In a way I am envious. I know the three years driving OTR was interesting but just kept moving never stopping for a look around.

    Looks like a nice rig.

    No doubt me and everyone here will expect updates on your adventures.

    Re: Returning to the road

    OMG - my hubby wanted your home on wheels.
    I said no - it's just another thing to clean.
    We still do several road trips - but I'm not cooking & cleaning.

    and of course many home on wheels are arriving daily here - snowbirds.

    enjoy the road - be safe

    Home is where you park it. Are you bringing a toad?

    Well two of the grandkids are planning on staying put in their locations, and are avid readers, and respecters of the printed word. They will mind my library, and allow me regular visiting privileges.
    That in the foreground is my aging Town Car. We haven't decided on its fate, just yet. with nearly 300000 miles, many terrific road trips and good memories, I hate to part with it, but it is not a car that you can tow around easily.

    We are planning a toad. Neither of our current cars will really work. Planning something simple, like a front-wheel drive sedan on a Dolly.
