An Official Full-Time & a Part-time LiveAboard
November 23, 2011Happy 1st Birthday Locklan Tacktor! Lots of Loves Lil' Man!
What a short night & long busy day! We both are exhausted, but elated...
This is a step toward our plan of becoming full-time live-aboard cruisers.
We still have a ways to go...but it is a step!
Last night, right after Dean got home from work we hooked up our 5th wheel & said goodbye to our home of the past 2 1/2 years...Trader Village RV Park. As my Daddy (& original Crewmember) says...
"Off to the next chapter of the Calkins Saga!!"
After a very short night of sleep, I woke up to Dean calling me before the alarm went off. He was woke up by all the early morning shoppers and was in need of a bathroom! ;-) Well I hopped out of bed & made coffee to fill the mugs, then off I went to join up with Honey! We had a busy day ahead of us.
We grabbed a really unnourishing breakfast of MickyD's then headed to park the rig with 4-sale signs. A very emotional moment for both of us as it has been a beautiful home for us for the past 10 years, something we picked out & specifically had built...our first "Home" together. It breaks our hearts to have to sell it, but it is for the best. When we are cruising...it won't be good for it to sit in storage. It's best that someone is using and loving it as we have. It is beautiful!
Say lots of prayers for us...this isn't going to be easy. Just thinking about him leaving Sunday evening back to Arlington for his work week...I already miss my Honey & Best Friend!! :-(
We grocery shopped for our Thanksgiving dinner, unloaded vehicles, organized, put things away & settled in to a quiet evening relaxing...
|Time for a Shiner!|
ps...just an after-thought...
We call our 5th wheel our "rig" or "it" or "coach" in the RV- ing world.
We call our boats/ships/yachts/power or sailing vessels..."her" or "she".
