Jim went fishing today. Still isn’t completely cured of his fishing pox because he didn’t bring any fish home with him.

We met Jeri and Terry for dinner tonight at the #1 Eastern Super Buffet that we just love. For $12.50 you get all you can eat Chinese food, seafood, sushi, Mongolian grill, fruit, American food, and of course so many different kinds of dessert. Jim and Jeri head for the oysters, shrimp and crab legs. Terry goes straight to the Mongolian Grill and I wander over to the Chinese food. Definitely a recommendation from us.

Now for the explanation. I mentioned in the previous post about selling our motorhome. Several people didn’t realize that we are the owners of two RV’s. When we started out full timing we had a fifth wheel. We then decided that a motorhome would be better to have because it would be easier on Jim to set up. You know – that push a button to level, you don’t have to go outside to start the generator, and you don’t have to get outside when you stop for lunch somewhere. Well, except to take the girls out, of course.

So we traded our truck and fifth wheel in on a motorhome. We truly love the motorhome but Jim found that he was frustrated with not being able to take the boat along unless I drove the truck and towed the boat. However, we didn’t start living this lifestyle so we would travel separately. I know a lot of couples who do that but we didn’t like it. This summer we decided that we were going to go back to living in a fifth wheel and we could tow the boat behind the trailer. Currently, we are living in our fifth wheel and the motorhome is on consignment in Montana.

Hope that makes a little more sense.


  1. That #1 Eastern Buffet is sure a fantastic place to eat. Terry normally doesn't care for too many Chinese buffets because he thinks the food sits too long. Well, that came after a few bummer restaurants we went too. However, #1 Eastern Buffet is definitely a gem!

    Need to get that fishing pox cured so you folks can head to "Q" with us.

  2. Sounds like a great place to eat. What do you do with the boat when you go to a state that doesn't allow double towing?

  3. He may not be catching any fish, but he is clearly hooked on fishing:)

  4. Apropos of nothing ... those four eyes on your header get me every time. You should change your name to Doxon.

  5. Thanks. I figured the explanation was possibly a little convoluted.

  6. Let's face it. Jim and Terry = desserts!

  7. "Fishing is not about catching fish" so I've been told ;-))

  8. Catching up on your blog, the best thing about this full-time lifestyle is that you can make it your own, whether it is a 5er or a MH or a trailer, whatever works for you.

    We do have to get together this winter, for food of course.


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
