Could Get Used to This

We had a great first day here in Lake George. 022For much of the morning, we watched rigs drive by on their way out. The park went from being completely full to having a lot of empty sites.

We are tucked up into a site on a little rise.


Even if the site next door has someone in it, this site is kind of off by itself.







It was a little cool yesterday when we first got up. We tried out the fireplace, and as everyone has said, it was great for taking out the chill. We were surprised at how much heat it gave off, and I didn’t even really turn it up high.

We actually got out and got a little exercise. We went for a walk….026






and a bike ride….013



…and then we sat outside and read our kindles while we enjoyed an apple and some cream cheese dip.


Yes, I definitely could get used to this.






And both Harry and I have been pleasantly surprised at how well the cats have adapted. No crying, or waking us up all night. I thought they would do fine, but I expected it to take a couple days.


I wish our stay here was going to be for longer than just a few days, but we just keep saying, just a little over a year left. Until then, we’ll just have to keep “practicing.”


  1. Glad you're enjoying your get-away. The cats seem to be doing great. Ours adjusted to the new lifestyle quickly and enjoy looking out the windows. Keep "practicing" and before you know it, you won't have to go home because you'll be home.

  2. how great that your first 'practise time' went so well!!..I think that all of us still at 'home' know darn well that one day we will all 'get use to it'!!!

  3. Having the fiver and taking these trips is the best way to get ready for FT. We spent about 5 months living in ours just around our hometown before we retired and it was a good way to learn our rig and be ready for the adventure ahead. So glad you and the cats are enjoying the vacation.

  4. We practiced Fulltiming for about a year before we jumped into it... so those short trips are very helpful.
    Have fun & Travel safe

  5. Having the rig makes it so much easier to believe.

  6. Somehow we (and cats) learn quickly how good this lifestyle can be. Yup, all of you are READY!!!
