Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

Getting Ready To Fulltime


The weather here this week has been in the 50’s and 60’s not to bad for January here in the Midwest.

Didn’t get  much done around the house like the painting and things but spent as much time outside as we could.

Saturday I bought a shelf to try and organize the front basement of the 5th wheel, there is just to much wasted space trying to pile things on top of each other. 




We have started loading the things we are going to need.  



I found this RV parts distributing company that has a local warehouse here in KC. I sent in a request for a catalog on Monday and received it Thursday from UPS. The catalog has about 300 pages and they seem to have pretty good prices.

You can check them out at 




With the weather being so nice we are getting anxious to start our new adventure and hoping the house sells quick and the Tioga.

We now know what everybody talks about getting ready to fulltime this is a lot of work and planning.

I like your idea of shelves in the front of the 5er. Looks so neat. Good luck on selling that house!

We find lot of the fun is planning. I say "we" loosely. HE might plan out we arrange things in the fiver. I plan where we go and point him in that direction.

Love how you arranged the front compartment. Great idea.

I see you have the all important Weber Smokey Joe and chimney starter..those are priceless to us!!Trust me, it will take about 6 months of arranging and re-arranging the basement when you are on the road to finally get it the way you want..I can't wait to get in YOUR truck...Make sure to take the wine.
