Good luck in this new chapter of your life.
In my case and age, I'd be tempted to go full time, bouncing around some to my kids' and other family places.

Thank you all so much for the kind sentiments. Given the options of crawling under a rock or getting on with life, well, you can see the choice I made.

Lakeside, I can already tell you two things about camping before and after. A whole lot less stress. First, the Rockwood tows very easily. I know it's there if the road is uneven, but otherwise, it's a dream compared to the old 30'. Second, I am a fixer/pleaser, so I was always seeing to the comfort and happiness of others. Now it's just me (the dog doesn't fuss much... lol).

Welcome back... and glad you made the choice to get back into RVing.

I just finished a 13 month trip, solo with my cocker spaniel, from FL out to NW area and back to FL. Had the best year and loved every minute of the whole trip.

A lot different going by yourself with your furkid, but I never got lonely. Too much to see and do. Heading out May 1 again for about 7 months this time.

Good Luck, safe travels.

Wish you a bunch of good times down the road.

My wife passed from cancer also many years ago. You have my condolences.

Solo with a dog is fun.

Tmeek....give some thought to putting out a small sign at your campsite that reads something like this:
'Got something broken, I fix things AND I aim to please'.

You never know who might really need your talents, and you might even get pleasure in your heart in return to help with the sadness that abounds there.

Plus the pup may enjoy the change of pace in your step that comes from helping others.

Just a thought. We care.
