The end of 2016

Hello 2017!

For me, 2016 was a great year & a year of many changes.

I started getting Social Security, I met a wonderful woman, fell in love, got married & we acquired a house in Georgia.

I went from the 1987 Ford E250 oil burning diesel van as a home to a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country to a 1997 Pleasure-Way class "B" to large 5th wheel in Georgia with a street address.

Last winter in the Ehrenberg-Quartzsite-Yuma area was great. New friends, new places & good living. In the spring I met up with several friends from the internet (some I'd known for over 20 years). I met my new bride at the spring south east vandweller get together.

I'm not sure what direction the future holds but travel (with a home base) is the plan. Speaking of travel it's 2017 and about time we were heading towards Arizona...


  1. Travel safe - adventures ahead.

  2. A street address? Horror of horrors :) Congrats Rob and may the future hold a truckload of happiness for both of you. This is Jim (aka sail4free); I'm on Annie's account. After living in a fifth wheel (as we do), you'll be ruined now -- living in a van will never be the same.

  3. Happy new years Jim! You make it sound like I never lived in a house :-) The van is for traveling right now..
