Mini-Retirement Week 1: Not That Exciting

While it was nice to not have to think about work anymore, my first week of mini-retirement was fairly uneventful. I had a bad cold all week culminating with the breaking of my right eardrum so now I can't really hear out of my right ear. Lucky is sitting in the driveway covered in snow and looking like he wants to hit the road. There's still quite a bit of work to do on the camper before we leave including: Dicor the whole roof perimeterReplace the main door handle (Old one broke and now it's stuck closed)Replace outer compartment locks and thumb latchesInstall water sensors in front cap area to provide advanced warning of any water issuesInstall two Maxxair vent covers We're slowly ticking things off the list around the house.

Getting Started…

Hello world!  Ok, lets be real, no one is going to read this, at least not anytime soon.  Yes I know 99% of blogs have no readers... but hey 99% of people in the world have never started a blog so what the hell.  Anyways, this is a brand new internet blog that will document the Scott family's transition to from full time working suburban dwellers, to gypsies with no jobs living in an RV whose interior living space is just slightly larger than the average garden shed.  This first post will be an introduction, so lets begin.

Clan Scott is you're average family of four living in the suburbs of Colorado's front range.  Tim has been working in the software biz for the past 15 years and Jackie, a real life (though not medical) doctor, was employed in the biotech field before becoming a full time stay at home mom.  Our sons John and…
