Year Six Recap 9/5/2018 to 9/4/20193 Years & 3 Months Fulltime RV'ing, 1 Year & 9 Months Part-time
Five Years On the Road completed, Starting Year Six, Yuma Home Base - Yuma, AZ - September 5, 2018
Even though we sold the house and moved into our 5th wheel in 2012, September 5th, 2013 was the date we hit the road, our 'anniversary'.
Here is the Year 6 Recap.
We began year 6 with no RV. But in October, my Son-In-Law's mother made us an offer we couldn,t turn down. It was a 2004 Arctic Fox 29 foot fifth wheel and a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD. So I flew up to Washingtonand picked them up. Got back to Yuma and re-installed my solar panels, inverter, and batteries. Now that we are officially part timers, we took trips to Quartzsite in January and February, and another trip to Palm Springs in March. Then in Aprol, we headed to Washington for our annual visit to see our kids, grandkids, and great grandson too. We left WA early in June with our 1 year old granddaughter onboard. It all went really well. We were helping our daughter and her husband move to the San Diego area. We were back home in Yuma June 20th. Later that year, we did take the RV into southern California to visit them. That's year 6 for the Ferg's, RV part timers.
