We do not plan to stop traveling, but we do want a home base for our travels. Traveler's World RV Resort in San Antonio, where we have lived for five years in our 5th wheel, is the place we want to call home. The people are wonderful. During the busy season (fall & winter) there are many activities from which to choose. Plus, the temperature is pretty mild during the winter.
At Tim's Tiny Homes we looked at park models (under 400 sq ft) and manufactured homes. This is the third place we've been and found a manufactured home we really like. The home is two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. It is made by Athens Park Homes.
March 30-31 we plan to drive to Athens, Texas, to visit the manufacturing facility and see how Athens manufactured homes are built. While we're in the area, we also plan to look at Diamond and Platinum manufactured home builders.
Careful consideration is going into our decision and we think it's the right one for us. Since we're both working, we won't be traveling full time for a few years. This move will allow us to bring the contents of our small storage unit here from Oregon.
Our jobs allow some long vacations, so we will still be traveling. 2017 travels will take us to Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Florida in May. Then we will go on a six-week road trip to Washington, D.C. later this summer.
I am changing from full-time permanent to full-time seasonal and will work from November through May. If needed, I can be on call during the slow season.
Because of this change, I will be traveling quite a bit this summer with my friend, Susan, and her husband, Darren.
- In June, we will be on a three-week driving trip to Billings, Montana for the Volksmarch convention. We will stop along the route to do Volksmarches at state capitals, national parks, national monuments and other interesting places. We hope to do two 10k walks per day (feet, hips, and knees permitting).
- In August, we will go on a five-day driving trip to Grand Island, Nebraska for a Volksmarching weekend during the total eclipse of the sun.
Then later in August, I will fly to Portland, Oregon to visit my family for two weeks. Bob is working full time. I invited him to go with us, but he can't get that much time off work. Bob and I will, however, have two weeks together on our Florida trip and six weeks on our Washington, D.C. trip and I'll be home from mid-June until mid-August.
That's the latest news from Texas. Have a great Wednesday, y'all. TravelBug out.
