We're Not in Texas Anymore Toby!

Driving, driving, driving……that’s all I did this week. That is the least favorite part of this new lifestyle I have chosen. I have arrived in Daytona.(well, actually Bunnell.) I will show the campground to you later. I think I have found a home for the next 2 months. This is a wonderful place!! The weather is perfect and most everyone has their Harley parked outside their RV.

I really enjoyed my 3 weeks in Livingston. The SKP’s are a great group of people. Everyone is a full-timer. What a treasure trove of information. I look forward to my next visit there.

So, here was my week…….

Love to one and all…

Living my Dream!(so blessed)

I sometimes think I am living a dream and don’t want to wake up. It is like a long trip and I have to turn around and go back home. Wait….this IS home now. I am awake and I have reached my goal of becoming a full-timer. I don’t have to bust camp on the last day of vacation and worry about Monday. I just have to say, it is very satisfying to have achieved my dream. After two plus years of working towards this scenario, I still am amazed that I have arrived. My ship did come in after all those dark days of wishing and hoping.

I am still changing my mail and titles on the truck and Harley and the Raptor. I just got off the phone with my bank. It really is a process. I did go to the driver’s license place and that was not so pleasant. I filled out all the paper work and let them take my prints and photo when the dl lady said “Oh-oh. We have a problem.” It turns out that this years renewal uses the new 50 State check system. She asked if I had been to New Mexico. And that they had put a hold on my license. What? I haven’t lived there in over 30 years. She said that that sounded about right because it was a traffic ticket from 1982. I called NM and was told I had a $15 ticket fron ’82 and I had to pay them $41.25 to have it cleared up. I paid them and was told I could get my license next Wednesday. I noticed the money was taken out of my account immediately, but I had to wait until next Wednesday…WTH!!

I have met so many people and here at the SKP camp, everyone is full-time. I love this place. I have met several men in their upper 80’s who still full-time. How very cool I think that is. Believe it or not, I really am learning some things about my new lifestyle. This is a wonderful place for a green-bean like me to pick up valuable tips.

In about a week, I will start my journey to Daytona Beach and hook-up with my Brother and his family. Soon, it will be Bike Week. Daytona turns into a land of Harleys and all sorts of amusement. Just right for me! I am looking forward to everything but the drive. I guess I need the practice, so, on with the show.

Love to everyone,
