A Year Today

Location: New Orleans, LA (High 53, Low 34)



It was one year ago today that we packed up and pulled out of our Catskill home base, headed for southern winter weather and sunshine.


I won’t do another one of those reminiscent posts as I already summed up our first year back in December, but we have been doing a little thinking back this morning, and some of those “one year ago right now we were…pulling out of our site, …etc.” sentences have made their way into our conversations. :) We are still enjoying our life on the road, and don’t see any changes coming up any time soon in our future, although we do occasionally discuss what might be next when we do get ready for something new. I know there are a lot of fulltime rv’ers who plan to travel ‘til they drop, but I don’t think we’re in that category. Who knows for sure…we’re still looking ahead and dreaming about all the possibilities there are out there. 

But out of the future and the past now…here in the present we’re enjoying a cooler and windier day in New Orleans. We are glad that we went into the city yesterday as it was much more pleasant for spending the day outside. Today is going to be a quieter day. I’ve been spending some time checking out some possible things to do at our next stop. In a little bit, we are going to find the grocery store and maybe take a walk by Lake Pontchartrain, which is only a few minutes away from the campground. Well, if we decide to brave that cold wind. :)


  1. Congratulations on one year! We're only 6 weeks away from that milestone. Hope to hook up with Phil and Rudee at the Tampa RV show tomorrow or Friday.

  2. Great to see you still enjoying the choice. Just started our third year and are just settling into the traveling life. We love it and cannot see a light at the end. Happy travels and hope to see ya down the road.

  3. Congrats Jessica and Harry....we know that you are enjoying life and that is what is important...
    Safe travels
