New Beginnings, Again

We have really neglected postings to our blog and we have no real excuses. We do promise to do a better job from here on out.

After returning from our outstanding 6 month trip out west in September 2012, we stayed in Panama City Beach until the first of November. Apparently we suffered a mass psychosis and decided to spend the winter in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. In the winter. What were we thinking? We don't have a clue. On our second day in Pigeon Forge, it snowed, sleeted and rained, all in the same day. Frankly, that was pretty much the norm for the rest of our stay. After four months of frigid temperatures, and various types of frozen precipitation, we called it quits and rented a space across from the Gulf of Mexico in Miramar Beach, Florida. Since we have wintered in the Panama City Beach and Destin area for the last 5 years, we decided to move our residence from Georgia to Florida. We are now Florida residents (since April 2013) and we are enjoying all the benefits of living in Florida. To celebrate, we bought two small scooters and during warm weather we mostly use them for all our transportation needs, as well as for pleasure rides.

We plan to remain in this area and use it for our home base and do all our travelling from here. Our nest short trip will be to the huge RV show ion Tampa during the third week in January 2014.
