On the move again – but faster!

Here we go again. Not only is the golf tournament completed (very successfully thanks to volunteers, sponsors, donors and players) but so is our 6 year relationship with paws4vets and paws4people. We have separated due to ‘irreconcilable differences’. It was a good run and we are proud to have played a major role in bringing in close to one million dollars in funding during that time. They have a great mission and we wish them the best. So Saturday after the event we hit the road on a new adventure in our 5th wheel. We have lots of ideas and maybes, but really we are just headed westward. Slowly. Faster than the boat’s 7 mph as we travel more like 60mph, but instead of pulling anchor up at dawn and moving 10 or more hours to get 70 miles in, we unplug from water and electric, roll up the awning, […]

Who wants to go traveling in style?

As usual there is lots going on around here. If you have been following the storyline, the plan was to fix up the Land Yacht so we had a place to live for a few months while we organized the 2nd Annual Step Up to the Tee for Veterans golfing fundraiser in Beaufort SC. (BTW we still need players, donors and sponsors to make this work! Please check out http://paws4vets.org/golf) The next step in the plan was to sell Yume and find a truck and 5th wheel RV to travel westward after the fundraiser. Well… We found a truck on Craigslist in Sarasota and picked it up this week. While down there we put a deposit on a 5th wheel as well. It is a 32ft 2007 Newmar Cypress. (See image above.) So now we have a vehicle for the first time since we left the horse farm three and […]

Ocean Yacht to Land Yacht in Under Two Weeks!

Yowsa! Two weeks ago we rented a car to visit the boys at Ryan’s place in St Pete. Ian was driving in from Valdosta for the weekend. We were both looking forward to visiting the boys. We decided to stop by and visit our sailing friends Dave and Cathy for lunch in Jacksonville, then Joe and Sue in Ft Pierce for dinner, stay the night and drive over to St Pete on Sat. Easy. Dave was showing us around the church where they park their RV and do mission work (all kinds of stuff needing doing with a group called Nomads) and casually pointed out a motor home, laughed and said “you could probably get that cheap” or something to that effect. We looked inside and Shelly said “don’t touch anything”. The RV had been sitting there for 5 years under the trees, the interior was pretty bad – moldy, […]

Beaufort SC – Setting Up A Golf Fundraiser!

Well first off we sure could use some help figuring this golf fundraiser thing. We might have stepped in it this time! If you know anyone in Beaufort – or anyone who might be interested in helping wounded veterans, or service dogs, check out this page and all the sponsor opportunities! (Hint – suggest your friends and family give the gift of a donation in your name to paws4vets this year!) Check it out at http://paws4people.org/golf or click here… We took a bunch of videos on the trip down. Roll the film! First we were pleasantly surprised by a Christmas Boat Parade when we anchored for the night in Morehead City NC. Then here we are coming down the Waccamaw River in the morning headed for Georgetown SC. And visiting a really cool island just north of Charleston… And last – coming into the Coosaw River just north of Beaufort […]
