Travels With Dick and Judy

Follow us in our trials, triumphs and tribulations, while on the road in our motor home "The Liberty Belle". We chose to forsake the conventional lifestyle in our 3,000+ square-foot home to move into a 40-foot Winnebago Ultimate Freedom. Travel with us as we take you on the road with us in our new lifestyle.
I may grow older, but I'll never grow up!

How did almost 6 weeks go by so quickly?!  Not having to set an alarm for 5:30 a.m. has been fantastic.  Most of the time has been spent enduring the heat and adding silver foil insulation to the windows of the RV to enable the AC to cool as much as possible.  Bay RV Park has very few small trees and none near our RV, and an incessant wind (being closer to the Gulf of Mexico) – preventing us from setting up our awning.  After a few days in the park, we woke around 3:00 a.m. one night to a hail storm and about 15 minutes of heavy rain.  It was very frightening and LOUD ‑ especially when you realize there is no place to go if you need to.  Since that night, we went until this past Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with NO rain and near 100 degree temperatures.  Most of the days were spent indoors, and we would go out on the back side of the RV in the shade in the late evening.  I have read a lot in my new Kindle (and uploaded more books today), and we have spent lots of time on my laptop and Dick's computer checking email, Facebook and researching topics of interest, plus Dick has taken a few pictures with his new camera.
We have had our good friends and Dick's former co-workers, Dave and Lisa, for dinner a couple times, and our cousins, Gordon and Linda, have come to visit.

Our son Mike and his family spent a couple days last week visiting us, and we spent a day in Galveston.  Again, the heat and wind made it impossible to do much else.  Plus, our daughter Michelle and her son have visited a few times.  Both Dick and I are ready for a park with trees and not as much wind, so we can put out our awning and set up our outdoor stuff.
