December 31 marks 160 days (almost 14,000,000 seconds) on the road. In that time we have stayed in 32 places in 10 different states. The states are Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, Indiana, Virginia, Maryland, North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. We have traveled 3977 miles in the motor home and about 5000 miles in the CRV. We both agree that the experience has by far exceeded our expectations. We have seen many new places and things and have had the time to explore others more thoroughly than on previous visits. We have met many new people and have gotten to spend extended time with family and old friends. Many times we have been asked what the best thing has been and we really can't say because so much of what we have done has been wonderful. One thing that neither of us miss is the snow and cold. While in North Carolina for November Nanc put her shorts in the basement because it was so cool. Since we arrived in Florida it has been shorts weather almost every day. We have gone swimming several times and walk or ride our bikes often.
As 2008 begins we are at Southern Pines Resort in Frostproof, Florida until the 14th. Nanc's sister Judy and her husband Bill are here for the winter. When we leave here we are going to south Florida and the Keys. We will then slowly work our way up the west coast of Florida trying to stay in the warm weather. After leaving Florida we will be traveling along the gulf coast and across Texas to the southwest. Then we will head north to attend the Escapees Rally in Gillette, Wyoming at the beginning of July. We plan to return to Pennsylvania in the fall before heading south to warmer weather for the winter. The greatest thing about this lifestyle is that while we have plans they are not written in stone and if we decide to change we can very easily do that.
We hope that 2008 brings all of you health and prosperity.
