The DW and I retired June 30. Our retired friends are keeping us up later so that we will realize that we don't have to get up at the crack of dawn anymore. It is working.

We are planning the first of what we hope are several long trips. In late September, we are heading to central Kentucky (bourbon tour), then to San Antonio for the world skeet shoot. After the shoot in mid-October, we are heading to the Grand Canyon (first visit) then to Yuma for a week in late October.

On our return to the Port Aransas area of Texas, we hope to see the sites of southern Arizona and New Mexico (suggestions welcome).
We will tour south Texas for two months (Novembe/December before heading to central Florida for a couple of months.

We will see if we can do this full time or not? Touring suggestions welcome.

As fulltimers, and looking at your schedule; the best suggestion we could give would be to slow down, and smell the roses. The race is over, enjoy the trip! You don't have to see it all right now!

I agree with Robbie, take your time. When we first started fulltiming we were still in "vacation mode," hurry to get "there" and then hurry to see it all and move on. Once we figured out we don't have to hurry any more, we started taking the time to experience an area and multiplied our enjoyment manifold. Our travel days now consist of maybe 200 to 250 miles, leaving around 9 or 9:30 and stopping for the day around 1:30 to 3pm. When in a place we want to explore, we'll typically stay a month. We've even extended in some places for a couople more weeks or a second month. Take days off where all you do is nothing. Or clean the rig. Or do the laundry or shopping. Be retired.

There is so much to see in this country, so much we didn't even know exists. If you have some time and would like to get some ideas, click on our link, below. You can scan the left side of each "year" to see if there's anything along your route that might interest you.

Good luck. You are in for a fabulous adventure.

I second that...enjoy your trip, but try not to rush it. You will finally have the time to slow down and enjoy the ride!

We should be back in Yuma by the time you swing through. You and your wife be sure and give us a shout when your there. We'd love to meet up with you and say hello. We live in the Yuma Foothills right next to the desert (Barry Goldwater range).
