We have moved again. We were on Lake Griffin in the state park. We got to go fishing one time, no hits or bites, therefore no fish (If it wasn’t tooooo cold we would go to the FISHEREE in Northern Wisconsin). We will try Lake Okahumkee next week I guess. The name should at least produce a fish, don’t you think?
During these Switches we do not travel far. Most times from 20 to 60 miles.
But the move is always fun. It is the same amount of work to move 20 miles as it is to move 1000 miles. It is not that much of a chore.
****Roll the awnings in.
****Then disconnect the water.
****Move the slide-outs in.
****Lower the TV antennae. (If we have raised it, most of the time we have not.).
****Dump both the black water (Sewer) and the grey water (sink & bath water).
****Take my Flags and name plates down and store them.
****Load the boat on top of the car.
****Disconnect the electric
****Raise the jacks.
**** Then I start the diesel engine to build up air pressure and raise the coach.
****While it idles, I hook the van up for towing. Yeah we tow the van, even for 20 miles. I want my Sherry up front with me. It takes about 30-45 minutes.
****After a final walk around, we are on the road again with our house.
****All the time I am outside Sherry is inside securing stuff so it won’t go flying in case we have to hit the brakes in an emergency. Doors and drawers have to be secured and noisy pans and dishes need padding, etc.
Today’s trip took us thru the ‘The Villages’, a famous retirement area here in central Florida. They are still building there.
We are back at our home park here in Florida, Three Flags. We will be here Three weeks before heading to Rainbow Springs State park, closer to the West Coast of Florida.
Thanks for coming to our move….
Statement heard when the car below was NEW.

Who would have thought gas would someday cost 29 cents a gallon. Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage.
