Over the next eight months Carole and I have planned seven trips, all with our Casita travel trailer. These will pretty much all be within more local states (NC, SC, VA, WV, TN, GA); but we are heavily leaning toward a camping trip to Pennsylvania. I think it would be nice to visit Gettysburg. We’ll see if we can firm up the plans.
The only month that we probably won’t go anywhere is June. That’s a busy month for us. We have our 35th wedding anniversary, my son’s birthday, my birthday, and Father’s Day. All of that will keep us busy sticking close to home.
At any rate, I made it. All the way until retirement. Hopefully I won’t croak anytime soon. Recently an old friend of mine died a week before he was to begin retirement. The second I saw all of that happen, I realized that there was no way I was going to try to punch the clock for even one more year. I’d like to enjoy a few years of the kinds of adventure I want to take and not suffer one more day of the grind of working for either corporate or federal pay-masters (both of which I have done).
