Seven Months

Location: Catskill, NY (High 83, Low 64)

IMG_3714It’s a crazy thought, but yesterday was our seven month anniversary of fulltime living. It was December 12th that we pulled the fiver out of the driveway for the final time, and arrived at this campground.

This was the picture of our first meal here in the fiver as fulltime rv-ers. It was such a great night.

Yesterday’s anniversary was pretty low-key.

It was a gorgeous day as you can see from the temperatures, and we spent a couple relaxing hours in the pool.

 

During thepool week we pretty much have the campground to ourselves. Later in the afternoon, there’s a better chance of people using a day pass to go swimming, so we generally go over to the pool around 11 or so.

 

Today was our long run day, and I have to say I am feeling so good about my running. It was about seven weeks ago that IMG_5976we started our training, and that day I was only able to run 0.87 miles before I had to walk. Today we ran the whole nine miles. We did stop for a couple water breaks, but didn’t have to walk at all. I still can’t believe it. The half marathon is 4 weeks from today, and I am going to be ready. Smile

 

We are enjoying the nice weather this weekend before the 3 H’s return for most of the next week. We have been thankful for our a/c this summer. If we were still in the house, we would be sweltering.

  6. Jessica,

    Congrats in the anniversary. We are down the road a bit in Florida, NY at Blackbear where Sue is workamping. We were wondering about wintering at Brookside. We have been there a couple of years ago over the Christmas holidays but cannot remember if they had full hook ups with winter water. When you stayed there this past winter did you have water?

    Hope you continue to enjoy.

    Les and Sue (Bigboomer)

    1. Hi Les,

      Yes, they have six active hookups with water over the winter (and six more available if needed). It's the area on the right side in my header picture. Jerry (the owner) puts heat tape and insulation on the water spigots. He is really good about keeping the campground road plowed too.
