Another month down, literally, and we are heading into the 4th quarter of what has been a miserable year for the markets. The questions is, when will this pain end?
Since our last update we have relocated from our beautiful spot in Tennessee to an amazing lake front spot in Oklahoma. This location has quickly become one of our favorite destinations since hitting the road. We have a pull-in spot and everyday when we open the shades we look out at the lake and enjoy the views and the wildlife. This year has been a disaster financially, but being able to live this life and wake up to these views and scenery almost everywhere we go has made these tough times much more bearable.

That didn’t last long!
In our last update we said it was nice to see a positive month. But we also cautioned that we should not get ahead of ourselves and expect it to continue. This turned out to be a good call as one can never underestimate the power of incompetent government lifers to further screw things up and cause more turmoil.
Additionally, in our last update we questioned Mr. Fed Chairman’s rational for saying that he believes interest rates, currently at 2.5%, are now at neutral and neither helping or hurting the economy when their own preferred inflation gauge clocked in at 4.8%. And that’s after stripping out food and energy which puts inflation at a disturbing 6.8%. As has become customary with our esteemed and incompetent fed chairman he and his cronies had to spend a lot of time walking back that idiotic comment over the last month. Much like they had to do with the transitory inflation hoax they perpetuated for over a year to justify not doing their job.

Sadly our time in Pennsylvania will soon be coming to an end. It’s hard to believe that we have already been here for two months! While we are always excited to move on to another adventure this is going to be a more difficult transition than usual as we leave here not knowing how much time will pass before we see our son again. It’s feels like a repeat of 2020 when we dropped him off at his dorm for the first time and headed home to an empty house.

Welcome to another edition of our campground review series. In this edition we will be reviewing Sun Outdoors Orange Beach located in Orange Beach, Alabama.
Sun Outdoors Orange Beach is located southeast of Mobile, AL along the gulf coast. We opted to take interstate 10 to state route 59 through Foley, AL instead of paying to go over the toll bridge. The bridge isn’t expensive to take and will save you about 15 minutes. We are in no hurry these days and we are always looking to save a couple of bucks where we can, so the longer route was fine with us.

Welcome to another edition of our campground review series. In this edition we will be reviewing Jetstream RV Resort at NASA located in Webster, Texas.
This was our second visit to Jetstream and we stayed at the resort for 2 months after leaving our lovely spot in Sedona, AZ. Since our last visit here almost 2 years ago, and after we made our new reservation, the resort went through a management change when it was acquired by Sun Outdoors. We were a little concerned that it wouldn’t be the same. From what we saw, most of the changes being made were for the good.

Well what else can be said about the month of April other than YIKES!
As April came to a close so did our time in Texas. We had such a great time during our 2 month stay in South Texas and it was actually hard to leave our spot. We had the same amazing neighbors throughout our entire stay, which is a bit unusual. We enjoyed everything about the area as there was a wide variety of things to do and places to see. If you are driving through or visiting Texas, and you like going to stores, be sure to put H.E.B. and Buc-ee’s on the top of your to-do list. You will not be disappointed! Most of all, we enjoyed the people of Texas. They are some of the most genuine and sincere people we have ever talked to and always offered great advice or recommendations to make our stay more enjoyable. We will miss being there, but we will be back.

Even though we have been on the road for over a year now, a week hasn’t gone by without someone asking us, “What do you do all day” or “Don’t you get bored?” The questions don’t bother us, but it’s interesting that the perception, even among some friends and family, is that we just sit in our “RV down by the river” like hobos watching life pass us by.
We understand that how we choose to live doesn’t conform to conventional societal norms. And we get that this lifestyle is not for everyone, but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong. It certainly doesn’t mean that we have thrown in the towel in order to live a self-imposed life of misery. As a matter of fact, it’s just the opposite.
