I feel like I have made the BIG TIME. My blog has been picked up byHitchitch.com. This is how I started my adventure....by reading about other full-timer RV blogs. Thanks Ron and Terry!!! Thank you, Maryanne. I am listed on her great site Frugal RV. These are great reference sources.

It's Monday morning and the West Texas weather has turned cold. Three days ago I ran the air conditioner, while this morning, I had to restart the heater. Here's what it looked like at 10 AM.
Over the weekend, I made a good dent in the garage. I called a buddy to come and get whatever he wanted from my discard pile. I guess he was too busy for free stuff. I think what I'll do is line it up out front and put a "free stuff" sign up, and see what happens. I know I could probably have a yard sale, but I want to stuff gone, now. It's all part of my master plan, downsize, eliminate, purge, and be done with it. Less is more, right?
Sometime today, I'm going to go borrow a trailer. I think my house will be easier to sell if it is almost vacant. I have started packing up the things that I want to take in the RV. I read on someone's blog, don't remember which one, have they decided they wanted all new stuff in their RV. After a few weeks, they decided they wanted their familiar things. I can relate. For instance, I have a small collection of my mother's kitchen items. Some of these items, I can remember Mom using, even before grade school. I like the nostalgic, homey feelings that I get when I use these familiar things. Don't misunderstand what I'm saying, for I will buy some new things for my RV. I don't want to completely cut the ties I have with my past. What I don't like, is this feeling that everything is up in the air.
I have found a toy hauler that has really piqued my interest. It is made by Heartland, specifically, a Cyclone 300C. Read about it here. I have actually seen one of these. Here's a picture:
Today, I'm on a mission. So it's breathe in and out, 1 foot in front of the other, and started whittling away at my master list. Here is your video of the day, so aptly named, Monday Morning......
