Let's get this show on the road!

Smile! Retirement is on the horizon!

Can you believe it’s been almost a year???

Guess where we are this week? (I’m actually writing this 2 weeks later) Hint:

Yes, we are back at Port Canaveral. We got a great deal on a 4 night stay so we thought it was time to take The White Knight back on the road. But first I should probably explain why it’s taken this long to catch up.

Back, several months ago, Florida had rain like we were all building Arks. It rained so long and so hard I actually had to dig out my LLBean boots to walk to The White Knight. Once we were able to get inside, we discovered that there was a leak in the roof and the whole inside needed to be completely cleaned, also any linens inside needed to be washed and dried. The smell was enough to knock you out too. After I cleaned and dehumidified it, we started to talk about taking him out again.  That’s when we discovered the deal at the Port.  The timing also coincided with some friends that we had met at Frog Creek being at the Port at the same time.

This year we decided to go to a different site, closer to the middle of the park.  (actually, it was the only one available during this particular week).   Sasha loved it because we were next to a tree and some grass that every dog in the park walked on or by.  She was in heaven seeing all the dogs!  She also went on long walks every day, and I think she can read because she took exception to a particular sign:2015-03-05 12.14.12

She did find the Feral Cat colony that is on the park property.  That was a big surprise to both of us when we came up on it with little warning.  Lots of hissing and some barking and on we went.

The bad part (and we always have a bad part) was on our way home.   We got cut off in traffic not far from the Port and jamming on the brakes lead to a problem not far from home.  As we got near our turnoff we encountered a car that stopped in the middle lane of US1, there was confusion about who was going where and when Paul had to put on the brakes suddenly, the pedal went straight to the floor.  We found out later that the first time he jammed on the brakes it put a pinhole in the brake line, so this time there was no fluid in the line for the brakes to work.  Sooooo…..we pull off the road and call Good Sam and waited for the tow truck.   We are on a first name basis with the tow companies around here!!  What an ending to a great week.   The next trip is to Bill Frederick Park in Orlando.  I didn’t even know there was an RV park in Orlando!

Here are some random pictures from the Port:2015-03-03 16.20.27 2015-03-03 16.18.53 2015-03-04 18.37.25

who knew ???

Well, the cost of a motorhome goes much further than buying it.  As we are about to find out today, we will know more about just how much.  We are taking the White Knight to our local RV place to get an estimate on resealing the roof.  Hmmmmm….hopefully it’s something that Paul can do in the future, as I understand that it needs to be done periodically.  Something about the hot Florida sun, what a concept!!!!   I also have made 3 trips to our local Superstore to buy supplies.  Thank heavens for the plastic picnic ware, outfitting him with everything from curtains to sheets to dishes and glasses (plastic of course) is crazy!  I love every minute of it, and can’t wait to take our first trip.
