The wheels finally rolled this morning.  It felt so good to be moving again.  I loved the winter in Florida but is was time to go on to some new adventures.  Unfortunately we have to be back in Florida by early Oct.  This past winter Ira had a small cancer spot removed from his head so now the doctor wants to see him every 6 months.  We need to be back for that appointment.  This is going to determine our travels for the next few years I am sure, but it could be so much worse.  I am not complaining.  The dogs seem to be happy to be moving again too.  They jumped right into the back seat and settled down immediately.  They know the routine.

When we left Eustis the sun was shining and it was hot.  By the time we stopped for diesel ($100 for half a tank, ouch) it was raining so hard we couldn't see.  Of course after we ..........um....Ira got soaking wet pumping fuel the rain stopped.  Now that we are stopped it isn't raining any but the black clouds are threatening.  Tomorrow we roll on to Pensacola for a few nights.  We are planning to go to the base to get stickers for the truck so that we can access any of the bases on our travels.

Just under a month ago Ira and I changed our way of eating.  We cut out a lot of fat, sugars, salt and carbs from our diet.  This has resulted in about 15 pounds of weight shed from each of us.  Now that we are rolling again this is going to prove a bit of a challenge for us.  On moving days we are going to have to be totally prepared with meals we can eat on the run.  It was so tempting to just stop and grab a burger and fries to go but we didn't.  At supper we didn't want to cook as we are parked in a Walmart parking lot so we just had salad and cold chicken.  It tasted great and just hit the spot.

That is about it for today so until we meet again, safe travels and maybe can meet down the road one day.


  1. Safe travels to you! Which direction are you heading in? :)

  2. Hi Jessica and Harry.

    We are on our way west. We plan to head to Vegas then north up the eastern side of the Rockies into Alberta Canada to spend the summer visiting children and grandchildren.
