2012 is in the books … and an eventful year it was.
We moved into Island Girl on September 1st and have made our way from Denver to Miami. Along the way we have had many a fun time in amazing places and caught up with amazing friends.
RV living has turned out to be quite pleasant and Island Girl is a comfortable and spacious home. A few relatively minor mechanical glitches but nothing serious, all systems are go!
Hear are a few random facts about our 2012 travels …

We kicked off with a week of sharing RV info with our fellow Escapee club members at the Sedalia Escapade. We’ve taken to heart the advice we received about slowing down and not rushing from place to place.
We plan on spending the rest of winter in South Florida and in spring heading up the eastern US up as far north as the Maritimes of Eastern Canada before spending autumn in New England and ultimately heading out west for next winter.
2012 was a fantastic start. And we are so excited about all the people, places and experiences that lie ahead. Stay tuned!
Brenda, Angel, and I wish you and yours good health and much happiness in 2013.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
