Happy Easter

We drove to our old home town of Plainfield to spend some time with Rudee's family. We stopped at her Mom and Dad's for awhile and then went over to her Sister's house where we ate and had an Easter egg hunt for the kids. The eggs had candy and some even had $ in them. We all had a good time. We made it back in time to meet Steve, Trish and Grumpy (Goldwing buddies) at the Steak and Shake for supper. We had a nice meal and lot's of good conversation. Grumpy owns a motorcycle repair and accessory business (Grumpy's Goldwing Supply) in Thorntown Indiana and we have been friends for probably 20 years. He is also a fulltime RVer who lives in a really nice Titanium 5th wheel.
Today has been really wet here in Indiana and is on the cool side as well. We may try our hand again at BINGO. Probably wishful thinking that I could get lucky two weeks in a row but you never know :).
Rudee is in her last week of commuting. She brings her computer home with her Thursday and goes live from the 5th wheel on Friday morning. She found out that she can change her hours and will be working from 7:30 until 4:00 M-F instead of the 8-4:45 she works now. We are both looking forward to the change. There may be an opportunity for me to do the same thing she does sometime in the future so we may both be working here in the 5th wheel some day. We are looking for a way to be able to spend our winters in a warmer climate but are not so naive to think we can just up and quite working all together. With us both working remotely it would be plausible to spend winters where it's warmer and then back to this area for the other months. Eventually we are wanting to do the more "traditional" fulltiming where we can travel and workcamp if we want to make a little extra to support our travels. Right now though we have to keep our corporate jobs and get ourselves in a better financial position. Our goal is to be debt free before we start traveling and with workcamping combined with our pensions we could support our lifestyle as long as we are careful. I'll keep you posted.
