Hey Hobo, I just saw online somewhere that Seattle broke a record for rainfall from Oct 1 thru March 31 with a total of 43+ inches of rain. you must be pretty soggy by now. :B
Don't know if any of you have been following our blog, but we are in DC living the apartment life, which is really expensive here. :E No decent RV parks close-by that allow full-timers. We're getting used to it here, been playing a tourist on Saturday's going into DC to see the sites. We both miss the RV park lifestyle...don't know any of your neighbors here.
John/Nikki, congrats on the new rig. Hope you're enjoying the "new" smell. :B
Tradewinds, you are taking after your MH...pretty soon you both with have a lot of replacement parts, but hopefully functioning like new again.
Hobo, good to hear from you, but sorry you and Holly had to deal with the flu. Hope you are better soon.
Tradewinds, glad to see a post from you that does not involve mechanical issues, with you or your MH. :)
Laura and I made it to Alexandria VA where I start my new job on Monday. Went the long way around to avoid all of the snow in the north. Down I-5 to Yuma, I-20 to Atlanta, then north on I-85. 4000 miles total in 7 days. One day of apartment hunting (we had 7 lined up before we arrived) and we found our new home...Avana Alexandria apartments. Never thought we'd be living in a high-rise, but it's nice. Parking is kind of tricky...seems like none of the parking lots we designed with Suburban's in mind. :(
Hey Hobo, Merry Christmas to you and Holly too! Glad to see that you're still lurking around here. :B
And Merry Christmas to everyone else as well.
Bob, you're right, it's a shame we can't seem to get together any more, but everyone does seem to be going different directions these days. If it's not kids, grandkids, jobs, or just plain old being retired like you (and a few others) :B.
Laura and I are looking forward to our next adventure, although it will be without our trailer and it will be a long ways away from family and friends. Hopefully, the telephone, Skype and a few plane rides will help fill the void.
Congrats on the extension. Hopefully, that's what you wanted. :) My last contract in Omaha, I couldn't wait for it to be over! ;B
Yeah, leaving our trailer behind isn't our first choice, but the closest RV park is 30 miles away and $895 a month plus electric, plus a lot of propane in the winter. :R :E Our trailer isn't made for winter weather and full-timing. We've gone through about 55 gallons of propane in the last 3 weeks, and it's been cold here. We have already scoped out a few apartments within 1 or 2 train stops from where I'd be working, and plenty of places where Laura could get a job too, if she wants to.
A guy goes to the doctor and says, "Doc, it hurts when I do this.'
Doc says, "Then don't do that."
Maybe you need to stop going to Yuma. :C But I know you won't.
I have a new job lined up in Washington DC, but I have to get an interim clearance from the government before I can start. We're staying put here in Richland until we get the word (2-8 weekw), then we'll fly out to DC to find a place to live before driving out there. Our trailer is going into storage here in Richland. We've made some friends here that will keep an eye on it for us while we're gone, possibly up to 5 years or longer.
Hi Hobo. Good to hear from you and to see that you are still lurking on the forum. :C We had a hot 4th in Richland. I put a small windo AC unit in our "fire exit" window and put some foil backed bubble wrap (insulation) in the windows and those have really helped keep our trailer cool. :C :C
I'm still working in Omaha...for another 5 weeks. I'll sure be glad when this project is over (for several reasons). :R Looking for my next job/contract.
