Right now as I’m typing this post in our new WordPress blog I’m contemplating making a big mess of things (as if they weren’t already a big mess).
You see, we’ve had a blog at www.MacAndChris.com since late 2004. In the last few months a combination of technical issues, family situations, and procrastination has caused [...]
I first met Jim and Chris in 2006 at a Datastorm User Group rally and have only bumped into them a couple of times since. Great folks. If you ever have a chance to catch one of their technology seminars do it. Or if you’re running an RV rally or any kind of gathering [...]
This tiny lock came with a pistol that I just bought. I’ve seen smaller locks but they were toys.
Everyone’s mindset falls within a range, or on a curve, from those who are paralyzed with fear to those too reckless for their own good. To me it seems there’s a wide area of healthy balance that will allow people to enjoy many things in life, and narrow areas of extremity where life is either [...]
Yes, we’re buying a house!
Where? In Florida north of Tampa
No, we’re not going to stop traveling! (What, are you nuts!?)
No, we won’t stop blogging either. So don’t worry, you won’t have to see the doctor and get prescribed sleeping pills, we’ll keep boring you to sleep just like we have since 2004.
We located a house in the area of Wesley Chapel, FL that meets all of our needs! We closed on it and have been working to get it ready to move into, hopefully by the 20th of April.
What a difference this is! Several things have surprised us. For example, we’re surprised how much we’ve [...]
Last night was our first in the new house. After 8 years, 7 months, and 12 days we’re no longer fulltimers.
The house is still empty except for the master bedroom, some appliances, and essential kitchen items like a coffee maker, coffee cups, other dishes and utensils. Sleeping was comfy, but being awake needs [...]
Which do you prefer? I’ve found that for me Lowes seems better organized and I can find what I need faster. Also seems to have better selection. Both give me the military discount which is much appreciated.
Now that we’re “part-time” RVers we’re thinking about getting a smaller RV. There are so many choices and so many factors to consider in the decision!
On one hand we’d love to have a van-sized RV like a Pleasure Way because they’re so easy to drive and park, maneuverable, fit into any small RV space [...]
This is the first day here in the Tampa Bay area that we’ve woke up and opened the windows! Love “fall” here in Florida when we can start living outside – and letting the outside in. But we know this is just a tease, cool mornings won’t be here to stay for another month.
