1000 Days and What That Means

When we sold our house and picked up our coach on June 28th, 2014 we didn’t even think about what 1000 days on the road would look like or where we would go. We just did it! Today we have officially been on the road “full time” for 1000 days and the reality has been far more grand than either of us imagined.  But, what does it mean?

Florida bound – finally Snowbirds!

It’s surprising that we’ve been on the road since July 2014 and we only just now make it to Florida.

Our travel plans did not originally include Florida as we were heading to the Canadian west again – to personally greet the arrival of Grand Baby #9!
