WE’VE GOT NEWS!

Several months ago, while in Nevada, we were discussing our future plans. Where should we go this summer? Can you believe how much gasoline and diesel fuel costs are skyrocketing? Where should we go this summer? Can you believe how much food prices are rising? Where should we go this summer?

Can you tell we were having a hard time deciding where we should go this summer? We even considered setting up a Go Fund Me account to help us pay for gas to get back to Missouri! 🤣 Just kidding about that!

After MUCH consideration, debate, and sleeping on it several nights, we decided that we are going to stop full time RVing. Noticing how much our parents have aged over the last few years and diesel prices rising so quickly were BIG factors in our decision. Also influencing our decision was the fact that we only have six more states to visit to meet our goal of seeing all 50 states (Oregon, Utah, North Dakota, Virginia, West Virginia, and Delaware). We decided we could see those states taking several car trips pretty easily.

Once we arrive in the St. Louis area, we will start unloading the RV and moving into my dad’s house (at least temporarily; maybe permanently; who knows 🤷🏼‍♀️). Then we will begin the job of SUPER cleaning the RV and getting it ready to sell. Hopefully we will be able to sell it quickly and get close to what we want for it.

I will definitely keep blogging when we visit those six states, however, it will not be as frequently. There are also A LOT of interesting things to see and do in St. Louis and in Springfield when we go visit Jack’s mom. I will also blog about those places.

Before I go, I thought I would post some random pics just for fun.

This is a picture of my mom and me from several years ago (BEFORE we started RVing). Mom passed away in August 2019 from that dastardly disease, dementia. Here is a link to a poem I wrote about dementia: https://realliferealfeelings.wordpress.com/2014/03/29/the-dastardly-demon-dementia/
Lucy (L) and Ricky (R) sitting next to me on the bench seat at the table in RV.
Lucy jumped into the basket holding all the blankets and made herself right at home when we visited the grandkids on OKC!
Ricky making himself at home in Finn’s bed in OKC. “It’s kind of a tight fit Mom!”

So, for now ….. “On the Road Again!”
