NDBirdman Posted September 27, 2019 Report Share Posted September 27, 2019 Welp, today is my wife's long awaited day! She cleans out her desk and turns in her keys today, then she's mine, all mine. She's a little nervous about retirement but it's here. Our first retirement camping trip is coming real soon. Next week I take the train to Seattle, pick up daughter/grand-daughter and drive them back to ND to go on a trip with us. We'll be back here for 1, maybe 2 days then head out with the camper. First stop, grandpa's annual pheasant hunting trip. Granddaughter will hit one year of age during this trip so a little to young to take in the field with me. Although, grandma might watch the little one and daughter may go out shooting holes in the sky with me! After 3 days of sky shooting, we are going to head to central Indiana to celebrate my mom's 80th birthday. Hopefully it goes well, she is recovering from hip replacement and a broken arm a few weeks after from a fall. She's getting much better now, able to walk a few feet at a time, taking less meds so she can stay awake longer then 10 minutes. We will make this a short party and short visit, last thing we want is to wear her out with the medical problems she is going through. After that, we are going to head a little south and head west until south of ND, most likely somewhere in Kansas. Then slowly trek north until we hit home. When we hit home, I will drive daughter/granddaughter back home to a probably anxious hubby missing his gals... LOL, then I get to take the train back home to ND. From there, probably stick around until after Christmas, if everything is going smoothly with all financials set the way we want them, we will head back south until it gets warm again then look for a place to stay for a little while. Of course, the first trip's length will be controlled by how well a year old handles the trip/camping. We will be running on Gemma time. 2nd trip, or escape from whatever minus temps and snow momma nature hands us, will begin. Goal is to get south, jump from campground to campground every 2 or 3 weeks. From there, the adventures begin! Retirement has been a long time coming!
