Circle Complete

Good morning. A chilly one too. It looks like it isn’t supposed to warm up much either, as our high today is only 50º. To make it even gloomier, the forecast is calling for rain starting late this afternoon and all day tomorrow. What a way to start our summer in Michigan.

Day 172. This was our final day of our first adventure in Winnie as full-timers. We traveled from the Lebanon/Cincinnati NE KOA in Ohio to the Proud Lake Recreation Area, a Michigan State Park in Wixom, Michigan without incident. This is where it all began last November when we left Michigan to become “snowbirds”. The circle is complete.

We left the cold Michigan winter to find warm sunshine in the south. That was a laugh. Everywhere we went people said “this is the coldest winter we’ve had in years”. Many said we brought the cold weather with us. Just kidding I hope. Even though the temperatures were colder than normal down south, it was still warmer than what our family was getting back home in the north.

We were able to visit family and friends, see places we had never been before and experience life in a new way. We had a few glitches along the way, but nothing major. Even those were far and few between. I would call them learning experiences. Next week we start the summer out with doctor visits. Not much fun, but necessary.

We have been full-time RV’ers, with no other home than our Winnebago Itasca Suncruiser, for 238 days. Next week it will be 8 months of living in a very small home on wheels. No regrets. I love our lifestyle.

Until next time,

Kathryn
