428 weeks remaining....


So the wife and I took a short weekend trip to one of our favorite places, "Sam's Family Spa." A great time was had swimming and soaking in the hot pools before heading off to the Spotlight 29 casino to see a great comedian, Kathleen Madigan.  What a great show.

We met a friendly couple at the campground, Rita and Duncan from Canada. I riddled them with questions on fulltiming and they took it in stride. They had a lot of good suggestions and had an interesting perspective on changing our mindset for fulltiming. They suggested that instead of viewing our journey like a vacation or trip with an itinerary and a timetable, to just view it as exploring wherever we are, with all the time in the world to see and experience everything there is around us.

They recommended a book called "The Mile Post."
The MILEPOST(r): Legendary Alaska trip planner and Alaska travel guide to the highways, roads, ferries, lodgings, recreation, sightseeing attractions and services along the Alaska Highway to and within Alaska, including Alberta, British Columbia, Northwest Territories and the Yukon.

Good news on the money front. We received the checks from the refinance and have scheduled payments for most of the bills. This will leave us with only our current travel trailer payment until we receive the overpayment of our original first mortgage.

Current savings is $500.00. This number will be increasing every month going forward. Stay tuned.
