Hi!  My name is Helen and I'm 64 years old.  I created this blog as sort of a nudge to myself.  When I see that age 64, I think oh dear, I'm too old to start over, what am I thinking??  But I just don't feel it yet.  I'm feeling pretty good, no major medical problems, knock on wood! ouch!  :) These are just my thoughts right now, but I feel I'm right on the edge of making a huge change in my life. It will take many baby steps, I know.  So I created this blog hoping for encouragement and…See More

older woman really interested in making some changes and wondering if I'm too old to make this move. I'm 64 and would like to simplify my life. I've thought about buying an old school bus and moving out on the road. It would have to be very simple because I don't know anything about remodeling. I put homebuilt below but I don't have anything right now.

Hi Helen,  No, I am still going to do some traveling, but the trailer is going to be sitting in one place much more than it is on the go.  I will put the tires back on when I head down the road.  Seems like tires ruin from just sitting, but it will be a snap to put them back on.  Feisty is still great, even thinking about getting a little female puppy for her to teach.  Not sure yet, don't want to upset the apple cart.  Hope you get your trailer roadworthy soon. Keep me posted.   Steve Herring

Hi Helen,

My old computer died and I just got a new one.  How has your trailer search progressed.  I think you had purchased one the last time I communicated with you.  Have you been anywhere with it yet?  How is your doggie?

Helen, You have described typical wienie dog behavior.  They are very loyal to only one master and have what can be described as a bad disposition.  They are a one person dog, and you will have problems if you have any other dogs.  Feisty is my only dog, and the love, affection, and protective attitude she gives me more than makes up for all of her quirks.  They also are routine-oriented, and want to be on the same schedule everyday.  Hope you two can co-exist.  Steve

Helen,

   Merry Xmas to you and yours, and the best of holidays!

   Feisty and I are doing well.  I bought her a big pork bone for Xmas, and also one for my friend's dog.  I am going to give my friend's dog the larger bone.  My dog does not like to share (as I am sure you are aware of, since you own a little dog like I do).

   You mentioned a Santa Fe trailer in your last email.  Is that a Lark?  I thought that I read that you had purchased a Lark.  But I misread occasionally.  

   Thanks for all of your correspondence via email, and remember "JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON".  Peace on Earth and good will to all campers.

Your friend,

   Steve

Hi Helen and Dixie,

   Hope you are both doing fine.  What a coincidence we both have headstrong, spoiled wienie dogs.  Feisty sleeps with me every night, and she is the best dog in the world.  I have to pet her for a few minutes, then cover her with a pillow, and she stays in the same position until we get up in the morning.  She is a very stubborn little girl, but we get along fine.  

   She loves to bark, but only for good reasons.  Like anytime she hears a sound outside.  I could not live without her.

   Let me know how the trailer rehab is coming, and any problems you may be having.

Always good to hear from you,

          Your friend, Steve

Helen:

   Glad to hear from you but sad to hear you are having a few challenges with your trailer.  It will be even more fun when you work for it.  Plus, you might enjoy the process.

   I have had a few physical setbacks, but am fine now.  Can't wait for spring to go camping in my Lark trailer with my weinie dog Feisty.  I think she enjoys the outings more than I do, but we do it together.  Plus, you meet the best people while camping.  Keep in touch.

   Your friend,

            Steve

Hi, Helen! The title is the only thing I don't have to worry about. I got a '69 Holiday Rambler on eBay that's turned out to be a long way from what I was expecting. I hired a driver to drive a long distance to pick it up. Within a mile or two of getting it, the awning fell off, and at the time he was driving slowly because the "very good" tires were so bad he feared a blowout. That's just the beginning. It's really the first time I've had something like happen in all my years. Still figuring out next steps. Do you have a trailer yet? Have you towed it, if so?

Thanks Helen! I am anxious to get started on mine but its been horribly hot here this week.  But I'm putting the "spare' time to good use working on my curtains.  I have lots of questions and as soon as I can do inventory I'll be asking for suggestions.  Have a great day!  Jeanne
