What To Do, What To Do?

It’s time to refresh the thinking in this blog.  It’s getting monotonous and boring.  Same thing day in and day out.  Unfortunately we are not living the lifestyle that we had envisioned when we transitioned into the fulltime RVing so the entries are becoming stale.  The original goal for our Wandering America website was to update the travelogues once or twice a week as we traveled about this great country of ours.  However, do to many different circumstances, we’re not really traveling – we’re just sort of Snowbirding. 

Now, don’t get me wrong, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with our lifestyle.  We get to see family and friends in several different states once or twice a year for longer periods of time than we would have in any other lifestyle.  We get to enjoy a great social atmosphere for several months each winter at Rainbow Plantation and we have a great church connection in Fairhope, Alabama.

So we are accomplishing the things that mean the most to us even though we are not doing and seeing the things that we had anticipated when we quit our jobs, sold our house, and hit the road.  However, what all that means is that it is becoming difficult to keep this blog new and fresh.

We are going to keep this blog going as it is serves as a diary of our daily life, but I need to think of a new approach to make it more entertaining and enlightening.  But, in the meantime, it was “a windy chilly overcast day” yesterday.  We went to w*rk and we came home.  We ate, we read, we watched some telly, and, then, we went to bed.  “There’s nothing new under the sun.” 

Today will be “third verse, same as the first – and second”, but I’ll spend some time contemplating what to share with you tomorrow.  Hopefully I can find or think of or make up something interesting to write about.

Take Care Until Next Time - - - - - - -


  1. I vote for make something up!!! Why not? Try your hand at some short fiction or obscure truth and let us guess which it is!!

    Meanwhile, a diary of your life is not a bad thing. When you are too old to remember, you can look back at your blog and it will all be new stories to you.

    Okay, I'll quit now! Have fun and just write...

  2. We like what you have been doing. We enjoy reading your daily blog and you don't need to change it (in our opinion). Our experience is that daily life is just part of full time RVing.

  3. Darrell, you have a way of using humor in your writing that is entertaining and fun. If your w*rkamp j*b was driving the honey wagon each day, I am certain you can find ways to keep that entertaining.
    On the other hand, when a task becomes a chore, then it is time for change.
    I respect your decision and wish you happiness in retirement.
