The Cat Can Come Out Of The Bag

Michael received a confirming phone call on Friday and now we can let the cat out of the bag.  It’s been hard to keep this secret since late July!!!  We told no one until around the first of September and now our readers get to hear the big news!!!

We are moving for at least a year—maybe longer, to Aransas Pass, TX.  For the last few years while RVing in the winter Michael has become really bored and feels his health declines while we are away from home.  You can’t take all the tools along in the motorhome it takes to keep him occupied.  He was not interested in volunteering somewhere and he was not interested in working for not so great wages.  If you read Rollie and Gina’s blog you know Rollie works in the oil industry--when Rollie heard Michael was looking for a job he suggested Michael might like to work for him.  So, we are off on a great adventure and we have Rollie to thank from the bottom of our heart.  Michael is going to be learning and doing things he’s never done before—to say he is excited is an understatement.

So there is an explanation for all the remodeling going on in the enclosed trailer—if I’m going to be quilting in a Texas summer, insulation and air conditioning were necessary. 

There are so many things on our to-do list this year—it’s a little different when leaving for three months versus a year or more.  The time for our departure is approaching way too rapidly—twenty-five days—YIKES!! 

Rollie located a nice RV park in Aransas Pass.  Jim and Ellie will be joining us around the first of the year for a few months. 

Wish us luck as we start another new journey!

  12. That sure was one big cat you let out of the bag there. Major changes for sure. Thought maybe we were going to see you end up in the Congress area. All the best in your new ventures & bravo to Mike for making a bold step into the working world. I do understand a person's need to keep themselves gainfully occupied & the satisfaction of having a purpose each day. All the best guys:))

    Howdy Janna & Mike,
    ARANSAS PASS, TEXAS??? THAT'S A WHOLE LOT CLOSER TO LITTLE ROCK!!! There's a lot of good fishing around there, but not much elk hunting!!! No winter blizzards, either, but sometimes a little ol' hurrykane'll whoosh by!!!
    Good luck on your 'new' job, Mike and Janna!!!

  22. You sure did let a big cat out of the bag! I wasn't expecting this. I've been following your blog for a few months now, and I love your pictures and stories of living out in the country. I wish you both the best on your new adventure. It certainly will be different.
