Jim, I have sent Scouter Dave a number of PMs without reply. He was traveling in the states this year and his posts indicated some sort of problem making me feel the rally
is in doubt since he has made no further posts and the potential rally
is only a few months away.
We still plan to go to Newfoundland, leaving in mid-May. This year a lady founder of our park in FL with Newfie roots gave me a Newfie book to read. In the process of reading it I kept track of all the locations mentioned in the book and have decided to concentrate on that area of Nfld.
As well the lady gave me a list of her relatives to visit. It turns out that the area covered in the book and where her relatives live is one of the few areas we have not explored in Nfld.
Additionally we have spend the past 4 months in one location in FL. Though we have been very busy and made a lot of nice friends, I miss the road and actually, and maybe selfishly, miss time where it's just Ginny and me.
I have a good, elderly freind who once gave a sermon where she said as you age you become more of what your are, doing the things that really please you. I admit that being with Virginia on the road, exploring here and there, discovering little shared moments, creating new memories is at the very top of my list. It's part of the reason our home has become secondary and time together is the most important, time the commodity that's running our the fastest.
Ginny and I laugh over the RV experience while completing our 12 year on the road. Outside of our marriage we have never done anythoing for so long...heck I never held a job that lasted longer than 5 years...yet here we are in year 12 with no natural end in sight.. death being unnatural in a sense.
It's funny, coming from a creative business background, I often think about creating the trailer of my dreams yet at my age I am no longer willing to trade time on the road or "trailer perfection".
I hope my clear message is that time on the road is magical for us. I know.. I'm getting carried away. In my view the Newfoindland rally
appears dead though we probably will stop at the Music Festival once we reach Nfld, minimizing our stay at the festival as we head to the far eastern portion of the island.
Wishing you well as always knowing you're loving your Escape
Bhest to you.
