Putting the pieces back together – my thoughts

Now that we are into the new year we are looking forward to our 2019 travels. Last year is behind us and we feel like we have a fresh start. We began in January by camping with friends in central Florida. It was Liz’s first time back in the coach since the accident last July and she did great.

As I think back to the accident, I’m thankful that things worked out the way they did with our decision to not sell the house and go full time. Her recovery, once released from Brooks Rehab, was so much better facilitated being in our house. Our son installed grab bars in the shower and toilet area that really helped during the first few weeks of her recovery. She would have not been able to rehab in the motorhome. I think we would have probably stayed with one of our kids had we not had the house to go to. I certainly would not discourage anyone from traveling and living in their motorhome full time. After all that’s what we originally had planned to do. However, I would stress that it is important to have a plan of somewhere to stay for an extended period of time should an emergency similar to ours arise. Never in a thousand years did we think anything like this would occur, but fortunately we had the resources available to make the outcome successful.

  1. Thank you for telling your story. I can’t imagine how difficult it was for both of you but so glad to hear that you can now begin to live your dream. We are on our 8th year of fulltiming and we’ve had a great time but we are now in our early 60s and I think more about the what ifs. Our health is great but you never know. Insurance is our biggest expense but I feel it’s important to have. We do not take a single day for granted. We know it can change. Enjoy your travels and maybe one day we’ll meet up on the road.

    1. Thanks so much for reading my posts and taking the time to respond. The old saying that life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans seems to apply here too. Do your best to be prepared for the unexpected and as you say don’t take a single day for granted. Safe Travels!!
