Settling in and getting used to living on the road.

Settling in and getting used to living on the road.

We have officially been on the road since June 3, 2016, but we have not really had to live fulltime on the road until the past few weeks. We have had a few three week stretches that allowed us to stay with family. So since July 22 we have been out and about. I know it is not long but it is the start of us being gone for a while, a long while. More than likely we will be…

It was a whirlwind as we did most of that in just under…

First weekend as fulltimers…..

First weekend as fulltimers…..

  Well the sun has set on our first weekend as full timers.  It was a really busy weekend. I know that I have not taken the time to write in this blog and I hope that you all are still out there. The last few weeks have been pretty crazy.  We had to get everything we owned into either a dumpster, the RV, or the hand of a person who would buy it or at the least accept it…

Shakedown almost complete.

Shakedown almost complete.

Well it has been a pretty good week. We started off this trip with the goal of “living” in the RV. But, alas it was kinda like a vacation. One because we had a really good time, and two because we spent some money, alot of money. Nothing crazy, but we did have fun and eat well. The two trips to camping world didn’t help.. We started the week off in Cloverdale, IN shooting and event for the Central Indiana…

Bittersweet

Today is the last day that I will sign my name Detective, today is the last day that I will put on a badge and gun in defense of others. It is a bittersweet day, I just turned in all of my “stuff”. I was standing in the Captain’s office and looking at a pile of things on the floor. They are just things to the Captain but to me they hold memories. Memories of the job, memories of great times…

Getting ready for a shake down!

The title may not spell out what this post is about… This Friday we are packing up for our first “shake down” not in the sense that we are going to be robbed at gun point, well maybe, depends on what all goes wrong with the RV. On Friday afternoon we will head from St. Louis to Cloverdale, IN to cover an event for the Central Indiana Regional Porsche Club, at Putnam Park Road Course. We were originally going to…

Holy cow what a week!

Holy cow what a week!

I don’t even know where to start… On Monday 04-11-2016 I officially retired from the police department as a Detective. I was nervous about this meeting as I was unsure how the Chief would take the news. I couldn’t be happier with the way he handled it. First of all to allow me to retire with only 8 years on the job was really amazing. Second, he was supportive of what my family and I have decided to do, he…

Wow it has been a while!

Wow it has been a while!

Sorry for the delay in the making posts it has been a crazy month. We have completed many items on the checklist! The Magnum Power system has been completed thanks to a very good friend who helped me complete the install. We now have a 3000w Pure Sine Wave Hybrid inverter that supplies 110ac to all of our Rv with the power directly from the batteries. It also has a much more efficient charging system that will allow us to…
