Greenfield, CA

Holy smokes, in the almost 7 years of full time RVng,
I've never gone this long without catching up on the blog.

Last post was in April, but we've not been without fun things to do.

Later that month we drove to Paso Robles
for a Wine4Paws event with Connie & Greg.

A few weeks ago the 4 of us went to the museum of agriculture
and rural life in King City.
It was so interesting!

There were a few old produce trucks on display..

This one donated by our favorite winery :-)

They had some mock stores..

and some displays about the local farmers.

We really enjoyed it!

So on to the changes..
we're building a house!
We've decided to turn in the keys on full-time RVing.
(Yeah, right after we bought a new one 2 years ago!)

The decision was made for different reasons,
but mostly so we could have Mom move in with us.
We signed the contract last week.
This is our lot..

It is a Century home, 
a new development in Salinas.
It will be finished sometime in November,
so we have time to finish out our contract here at Yanks.
We'll be selling our truck and RV.

I'll be updating as building starts..
we're very excited for this new chapter!


  1. Big changes for sure. I know your mom will be so happy and you love the area. I hope it's a smooth transition. Best of luck!

  2. Best wishes as you enter a new phase of your lives. We all have to make the decision you made sooner or later. Exciting times ahead and so great that your mom can be with you.

  3. Everyone hangs up the keys sooner or later but you have an extra reason that will be beneficial to you as it will be easier to take care of your mother.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the next phase of your lives.

    It's about time.

  4. Congratulations on the purchase of your lot! We too are in the midst of building our new home. We still plan on traveling but are looking forward to having a home base!

  5. We wish you, George and Mom the very best!!!

  6. 7 years seem to be about the average. As I think about the people who started around the time we did... lots have or are planning on going off the road. I'm glad for you but sad that you won't be pulling into our yard again. Congrats.

  7. Congrats on the new home. We still have a small rv for travel (21 ft) but are very happy living in a real house again.

  8. Congratulations on your new home purchase. How exciting something to watch grow and plan for....I'm sure you will be very happy. We will be forever grateful to you for "hooking" us up with Marlene & Danny. This RVing lifestyle is full of wonderful folks. Looking forward to following your new journey.

  9. Congratulatons!! What an exciting time for you guys! We'll be sad not to see you out on the road anymore but are so happy for all of you as you begin this new chapter.

  10. Life changes are always happening, glad this one is for the best. You had a blast traveling all those years and now it's the right time to plant your feet for the next adventure in life. We'll be looking you up the next time we're in CA. We may have a stix-n-brix house now, but the Journey is still with us, no plans to let it go.

  11. Wish you and George the best. Will miss crossing paths. You will never regret spending more time with Mom! Trust me!
