Fortunately we have no ties to hold us down. We were gone over 5 months this year. Two trips over 8000 miles each :) We'll be heading out again on boxing day until May. This trip we'll be relaxing...more like bored, in Florida lol. We'll be staying put for 3 differnt 1 month stints. Normally we don't stay more then 2 days in one spot, so I'm not sure how we are going to like this. We'll stay home until Oct and head out again for the next winter in Mexico. Retirement was a long time coming. Now that it's here we are going to put it to good use. We just have to find time to stay home long enough to sell the house lol.
