Good Byes

River Plantation RV Park site #435
Sevierville, Tn

Don’t worry.  I noticed the recent new followers who were all at the rally and appreciate y’all joining in.  That’s Laura and Bruce, Dan and Tricia, and the happy Laurie and George who got an offer on her house while they were at the rally!

While looking through some of the photos taken here, I found a few couples that I hadn’t posted.  Here’s Wayne and Renea after a party. They are from Louisiana and were also at the rally last year in SC.


Here’s Deborah and Phil as they prepared to leave Sunday.  They are in their little View until their 5er arrives.


And here’s the international couple, Gander and Goose from Canada.  They liked to hang around the RV Park.


There were a few more people who hit the road on Tuesday.  We got some shots of folks at their rigs.  Here’s Gail and Rick at their Tiffin Allegro Bus.


Mike and Terri at their Excel 5er.


Sherry and David in front of Winnona (Wanda’s slightly longer twin).


And Lee and Martha at their Cameo 5er.  They had planned to leave Monday morning.  It turns out that they are having trouble with a slide and have called a mobile rv tech to rescue them.  They are headed to Texas to workcamp at a KOA.


After saying so long to our rv friends, we joined Howard and Linda for brunch at FlapJacks which was just down the road from the RV Park.  I had a good omelet and Gin enjoyed her Caribbean pancakes.  We chatted with H&L for quite a while.  They are a great couple and grateful for the freedom that the fulltime life offers.  Kudos to them for carrying on with their great website RV-Dreams.  It has brought together many people and has added to our lives in many ways.

We relaxed in the afternoon and got things packed away outside.  We plan to leave early in the morning.  Early to us is 9:00.  It should take us at least 7 hours to go about 360 miles since we stop to walk Smudge a couple of times.  This was my last vacation and it was a great one.  We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us during the next few months.  Wish us well and thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.

Going to the Rally sounds like it was fun and motivating. I feel like you are all family, even though I haven't met any of you.

Someday ...

Ok, parties over ;o((

But now, we get our houses sold and begin the journey of a lifetime :o))

Work are, but not too hard. We wish you the best and hope the house sells quickly!!!

We miss you both already, wish we could have stayed for the entire rally.

Thanks so much for your kind words of support on my mom's passing, it meant so much to us.

Looking forward to meeting with you both soon and having plenty of time to enjoy your company.

I wonder what kind of rig Gander and Goose have. My money's on an Eagle 5th Wheel (groan!).

We had so much fun with you guys. Looking forward to the next time we meet up with you.

Loved hanging out with you two, and I hope ours trails cross again soon. Nice job with the pictures. I look like I'm so tired I can't hold my head up!
