I posted a while back asking opinions on living in a travel trailer. Lot's of good advice and suggestions.
Just thought I'd give an update. My wife is in Memory Care in Fresno and I have decided to stay in the family home to be able to visit her when this Covid thing lifts.
Selling the Aliner as camping and traveling without her holds no lure for me.
It's been a great time traveling this nation with her next to me but time to "give it up".
Not much joy in life now.
Stay well and cherish those you love, time is fleeting to do that.

At some point we all have to give it up. We only hope it is on our terms rather than a decision forced on us. Best of luck to you.

I am so sorry to hear about your wife. Sometimes life tosses us curve balls and we do our best. Thoughts and prayers heading your way.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

You may recall, I posted in your last thread, that I had lost my wife of 45 years. I too considered selling the house and taking the "geographic cure". Supplemented with copious amounts of alcohol. I did not go that way, I am still in the house with no plans to sell. I too sold the RV for the exact reasons you describe. Both turned out to be good choices. I would not presume to tell you what to do, I can only speak for myself. But year and half has passed now, and things are much better.

I don't know if I can live with it, but I have learned to live along side it.

Keep the faith, wishing you the best

So sorry you no longer have your wife by your side to travel the miles with.

You are doing what you have to do now. Good luck and may God bless you both.
