Today's episode comes to you from the great McDonald's restaurant in Sebring, FL. Have you noticed the upgrades going on in McDonald's lately. The layout is becoming more like a Starbucks seating arrangement with lots of outlets and places to sit and connect to the rest of the internet world. I like it.
We leave this morning for Lake Louisa State Park. I don't know if my mifi will be able to get a decent signal so I thought I'd better take a few moments and write from here. I came into to some online work early and now this.
We are thinking about where we want to be next summer and fall and winter and it looks like we will be out West. A question we get often is, "How long to you stay in one place?" I always say, "It depends." It depends on where we need to be and what we'd like to do.
As we plan for the summer and fall, we have a few considerations. We know we'll be in the following places and then we 'fill in the blanks':
- Orlando area this weekend: My brother flies in for a conference and we'll get to at least spend an evening with him.
- The Masters in April. More on that but yeah - no kidding - a lifetime dream about to happen.
- Virginia Beach/Washington DC - looks like we'll get to see our kids the end of April and early May.
- Tuscaloosa, AL - We are signed up for some Disaster Relief work in May
- Wisconsin - We intend to be there in June/July
- San Jose, California - Nephew's wedding in September
- Arizona for the late fall and winter
So we are working with those dates and places. We also know we have to renew our driver's licenses in November in South Dakota and re register the Roadrunner and our car. Or we can become Texas residents. We don't have to have the RV in South Dakota to renew, so we could fly there for a weekend and get it done.
So basically the big question we are solving is whether or not we want to become Texans. I like Texas and have no problem there. I want to know if we would save money doing it. If not, how much more would it cost to do that?
In order to answer those questions, I need to do some research and spend some time talking to insurance people and checking out some things. I will be doing that in the next few weeks when I have a better internet connection.
But we love planning and figuring out who we can see and where we can stay and how many Habitat builds we can work in the schedule. So more to follow on that.
That's all for this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles. Thanks for joining us and thanks for those comments!
