Home For The Holidays...

Well, not like that....we live in Florida.  The only white stuff we will see is if we go out on the beach, pick up some sand and tossed it in the air.  Anyway, we got "ok" sleep at the rest area...ok only because this cold lingers on...creeps up on you during the evening hours and attacks right when you want to lay your head down on the pillow.  During the entire trip I have played ping-pong with the bed and the Lazy-Boy chair at night.  Last night I had not coughed for over an hour while on the chair, so I sneaked into the bed, laid my head down and COUGH COUGH COUGH, and woke up Marcia who COUGHED COUGHED COUGHED, so I sneaked back out to the chair before she could find a weapon.  Three hours (or more) later I sneaked back into the bed for a few hours of sleep until the 6 am alarm went off.   That was 6 am central, and I think the eastern time zone was on the other end of the rest area.  Anyway, we hit the road by 7:30 eastern time and rolled into the condo complex just after 2 pm.  By 5, with much, not all, of the stuff unloaded, we were tucking the motorhome into storage for three months (except when we might take a short local trip).  Cost for three months was $240, included dump station, RV wash, many video cameras that do work, and secure gate with 24 hour access.  It also came with a sore back, sore legs, sore arms, sore feet and more coughing.

Note to family on west coast:  When it is 9 pm there, it is midnight here.  Yes, one of us is normally up that late, but not always.  Just remember that when it is 7 am here, it is 4 am there.

    1. After being up for a few hours we are fine, both slept better last night (first night home), but Marcia is starting to sound raspy in her throat this morning. :(

  3. Gosh, that's too bad you are stuck in sunny Florida. You're missing all the rain, snow and C O L D that's floating around California!!! Have a relaxing three months!!!

    1. WE are just overjoyed that you are actually having rain and snow (and the cold that comes with it....not a head-cold we hope)

  4. Yea, those time changes can really confuse the issue. We had to really think about it when in Alaska. The cost of storing your MH for 3 months is really reasonable.

    1. It will take me a number of days to get use to not traveling, not having to turn water off when showering or brushing teeth (although I still do, why waste?) and getting tired around midnight instead of 2 or 3 at night, and wake up around 7 or 8 instead of 9 or 10!
