    My DH is going to enjoy my retirement!

    A few months ago my DH suggested that we get an RV as I will be retiring in a couple of months and we can go camping more. We've been looking and finally agreed on one. So..... he called me at work today and said he is picking up the RV on Friday. Guess it will give me another quilting project to work on. Will have two beds to cover plus other quilted items in the RV. I'm thinking potholders, bedspreads, pillowcases, curtains, toilet seat cover, ....... and the list will go on.

    It sounds like great fun to me. Where all does he want to go? My friend got when when they retired but has stayed pretty close to home. They go around Southern Cal, Nevada and Arizona.

    We used to have RV's, but had to let go when the economy did the same! I miss the travelling and seeing all the different areas of our beautiful country. Enjoy!

    Make sure to stake out a spot for your sewing machine and quilting supplies right away!

    Already jealous. I'm older than my DH so it will be awhile before he retires, unless one of us wins the lottery, which we would probably have to split with quite a few other people. LOL!

    Congratulations on your retirement, especially your RV plans. It's something I had wanted to do, until my DH became disabled and I have my own health issues, so that's no longer an option. I wish you many happy times in your RV.

    I'm jealous. I would love to travel more, and we've talked about an RV, but hubby wants a little one, and I want one big enough to take grandkids. We are at a standstill!

    Congratulations on your coming retirement. You will love it! Wish I had known you were in the market for an RV. Would love for you to have considered the one we have. Enjoy your adventures.

    Congrats on your retirement and new RV. It's a fun lifestyle, we go on lots of trips. I quilt in the RV, I cut all my fabrics before we go. I put them in ziplock bags and label them. I take along a small cutting mat, travel iron and the rest of the supplies I need. I enjoy sewing outside in the fresh air!

    Two beds in an RV? Nice!
    I'd like to make at least one quillow for the RV sofa; great way to have a quilt handy without taking up storage space.

    I had one in 1992 and my sister and I drove all the way to Skagway, Alaska from Brooklyn, N.Y. Had a great time. Look into joining Good Sam Motor Club. Discounts and road service. I gave it to one of my sons-gas too high. Miss it.
    Enjoy, there are great campgrounds all over.

    I claimed all the space under the bench seat at the table. My little sewing machine fits in there with some plastic bins for supplies and fabric. Nothing compares to sewing hexagons, sitting under the Redwood tress, while the Blue Jays scold you.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    DH wanted to RV. That's all he talked about so we rented one, a very nice one, and took off for a month long trip. It was an eye opener. He didn't like driving it or doing all the have to dos when we set up. It had to be clean daily, meals cooked and laundry done. Nope it wasn't a vacation at all. We decided that the cost of the RV, gas and maintenance we could stay at nice resorts and still come out ahead. I know many that love the RV life but I'm glad we tried it out first. Congratulations on your retirement!
    Got fabric?
