The “RV” train has left Clarksville

Just a quick update on the blog.  Saturday 12/20 was our final day at Amazon in Jeffersonville, Indiana.  We packed up and left Clarksville, Indiana very early on Sunday.  Our goal was to get to Florida ASAP, as we are in the process of changing our residency from South Dakota to Florida.  I plan on separate blog posts to give our final thoughts on Amazon as well as the steps we took to change over to the Sunshine State.  And yes, we will have our final weight loss numbers as well from Amazon.  I know our family looks forward to that number!

These last four weeks have been very busy, working 59 1/2 hour weeks at Amazon, and using our day off to research mailing services, auto/RV insurance rates and health insurance rates.  We are really looking forward to a few days of doing absolutely nothing after the first of January!


Dan and I (and our dog Makena) want to welcome our new blog followers.  Last January, we met up with Chris and Cherie of Technomadia in Cedar Key, Florida (along with a great group of other RV’ers!)  They have an awesome video series, called Ramblings – Tales from Nomads on their website, where they interview fellow RV’ers.  We have enjoyed watching and learning from these videos, and agreed to be interviewed by them.  It was our hope that we could offer a little advice about our lifestyle and the reasons we decided to full-time before “retiring”.

A few days ago they posted that interview on their blog, and we have seen a surge in new followers as a result.  We are very humbled that you have chosen to follow along on our journey.  The RV community is a wonderful extended family to us.  We have no regrets whatsoever!

For those that have not seen the video (about 8 minutes), click here for the link.

We always welcome comments and questions.  And again, thank you so much for following along!

We wish all of you a very Merry Christmas!
