Just a short post and some reflective thinking as we enter our 7th year as fulltimers on this exact date of October the 31st.
In addition to Halloween falling on the 31st day of October each year, that particular date has another meaning for us. After marrying we purchased our first new townhouse in Manassas, VA. We lived in the townhouse for 2 years before deciding to purchase our first single-family home a bit further south in Stafford, VA. Now here's where it starts to get a bit "weird". We closed on the sale of the townhouse and moved into the Stafford house on October 31, 1987. We didn't think anything of it at the time, other than having to rush out and get some candy to satisfy the needs of the neighborhood kids. Certainly we didn't want to be on the "bad" list as soon as we moved into the new place.
Many years passed (25 to be exact), and we decided to sell the Stafford house and begin our fulltiming RV lifestyle. We closed on the sale of the Stafford house on, yes you guessed it, October 31, 2012.
So on today's date we begin our 7th year as fulltime RVers. We have no plans to sell anything currently, so no "closing on Halloween" this year. It's hard to believe that 6 years have come and gone so quickly. We are still enjoying our latest lifestyle as much as ever and we feel that we've only begun to "scratch the surface" so to speak when it comes to exploring new areas and experiencing new things.
