Seven years ago today we moved into Maxx full time, wow that is so hard to believe and boy did the time ever fly!
That works out to 2,557 days or 61,368 hours or 3,682,080 minutes … yup that’s a lot of time for two people to live together in a thirty-five foot fifth wheel, and yet we have done it and more importantly loved every 220,924,800 seconds of it 🙂
Little did we know, when we sold our house seven years ago and embarked on our six month adventure south across the US to the Florida Keys and back, that we would still be living full time in an RV today. That was never our plan, our plan was to go south for the winter, spend Christmas in Marathon Florida (because that is where hubby’s finger fell when he closed his eyes and picked a spot on the map) and then come home in the spring and buy a new house. I think in the back of our mind we thought we would still go south for the winter but the only thing we knew for sure was that we would definitely buy another house because we didn’t think we could live full time in an RV. How the world turns … we found we loved travelling and living in Maxx and just couldn’t bring ourselves to settle down.

We have seen some amazing places, met some amazing people, had some bad times, but even more good times … and probably more important than any of that is we are both travelling with the love of our lives and our best friend! Life doesn’t get any better than that.

So what do the next seven years hold? Well hopefully more of the same, but first we have to get through this pandemic. While the pandemic has put our travels south this winter out of the question we still have a fun adventure ahead of us.
Tomorrow we will move into a condo in downtown Kelowna where we will spend the winter surrounded by wonderful views, city lights, many many craft breweries and great restaurants all within a very short walk, and endless walking and biking trails through the beautiful city of Kelowna, B.C..
So while the last seven years have been amazing, the next seven years hold just as much promise 😀
Until next time …
