I am one of the first to admit that Harry and I like our technology. We’ve kind of given up saying that we are going to keep our phones for any extended period of time because we know before two years is up we’re going to be wanting to upgrade them. We’ve been planning to get our new phones while we are here in Avon Park for several months, so last week we headed to Verizon to get our new ones – the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. The only downside was that we used up almost all of our remaining data downloading our apps and getting our phones set up, so for the remainder of our period we were on a strict gb diet! We did not want to go over and have to pay another 15 bucks for a measly little gb. And we made it!! Woot woot!
One of the events we’ve really been looking forward to this year was the Tampa RV Show. We’ve heard a lot of great things about how big it is, but we’ve never made it there before. So last Thursday we headed for Tampa with Dee and Jim for an enjoyable day of window shopping.
We had a lot of fun looking at Class A rigs. Right now we love our fifth wheel and the living space that we have in it. For us, it has been perfect for fulltime living and we have no desire to get another fulltiming rig. But, unlike others, we do not plan to fulltime indefinitely. We would like to at some point, probably about five years or so, establish a home base in Florida and at that time downsize to a smaller Class A so we can transition to “anytime rv’ers.” So the trip to Tampa was a fun window shopping and information gathering day.
Harry is picturing himself driving this beast!
We had a great time at the show and now have a couple more rigs to add to our list, for when that time comes.
Other than that, we’ve been taking it easy. Every evening we go out for a nice walk. Even on the cooler evenings, we appreciate the fact that it’s warmer than we would be in NY. (And given the severe weather recently here in FL, we would actually rather have it cold.)
We have another road trip coming up tomorrow…more information about that on Wednesday!
