We’ve been “off the road” for about a month … arriving back in Eastern Washington the last week in March.
Since then, Jimmy and I seem to have slipped into a new phase of our RV lifestyle–that of house-pet sitters/property caretakers–while still pondering the possibility of acquiring a physical ‘home’ base.
