Many of you know, last year Gary and I sold our huge house in Dallas, Texas. We bought an RV and our plan was to travel the United States for a while until we were ready again to settle down permanently.
My health changed for the worse and the travel adventure across the United States was put on hold. We are currently living in Pensacola, Florida while my health care needs are taken care of. Pensacola by no means is where Gary and I want to plant roots and call home; it is just a temporary location.
Our current location is an RV park located on the Naval Air Station Pensacola. Their policy is an RV can stay for 3 months and then must leave for 2 weeks before returning back to the park for another 3 month stay. Back in October we spent 2 weeks in another park near here that is also associated with the Naval Air Station, but not located on base. At that time I was going through chemotherapy and we had to stay here in this area.
The next time to leave our current RV park, we decided to store the RV for 2 weeks and went on our cruise in December.
December of last year in my post ‘My Message‘, I wrote that Gary and I initially were to spend Christmas with his family at the RV park, but the plans were changed due to unforeseen circumstances. Those unforeseen circumstances involve Gary’s younger brother experiencing major health issues. Some of you know Gary’s mom who suffers from dementia lives with his younger brother. Because of his younger brother’s health issues, we transferred mom to Gary’s older brother in Orlando when we drove there for our cruise.
Now it is March and time again for us to leave this park for 2 weeks. We again have decided to store the RV for 2 weeks and take a trip to Orlando for several reasons.
Gary’s older brother and wife are leaving for a weeklong trip and Gary and I will be staying with his mom during their absence. We are also seeking and searching for a possible location to plant roots and find a home base. We need a home base for several reasons and central Florida is our first choice. The home base will allow us to have a permanent residence where we can receive mail and a place we can come back to after our travel adventures.
The home base will also allow for Gary to have access to a permanent VA hospital for his medical needs. Because our home base will be in a different area than our current location; I will need to find another health provider for my healthcare needs.
In 2 weeks, the RV is stored and we drive to central Florida to take care of mom and search for a possible home base.
Once the 2 weeks is over we will return to our current RV park.
