My mom just asked me this today. I am sure anyone who is not retired wonders what do retired people do to fill their day, especially if they travel full time. Don't they get bored?

Since we move to a new area every three weeks, we reserve part of our day to check out where we are staying. It might be a walk or hike on trails in our campground. If there is disc golf or a field nearby we...

DH Makes A Statement | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I've been blogging our travels since March of this year. Finally just yesterday DH says, I don't like that name. Then this morning my mom was talking about how confusing it is to her to read various blogs with their insider acronyms and names which prevents her from enjoying the storyline. She too doesn't like DH because it is not a term she is used to.

For example she belongs to an...

Fall Colors Are Beautiful In Washington! | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Yesterday was moving day! For many, many years I had travelled the first weekend in October to Wenatchee for the end of the season reining show. I always loved the drive because the fall colors were so beautiful that time of year. It has been 5 years now since I made that trip and we drove it yesterday to our temporary housing as we finish preparation for our journey to Texas. Since we just...

And This Is Why You MUST Turn Off Your Water When You Leave | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Ok folks, we've been diligently turning off our water since we moved into our trailer. On Monday we left in the AM and turned the water off. One thing was different however, DH had moved our scale from between the sink/shower to between the wall/toilet. It is quite heavy. Upon our return that afternoon I turned the water back on.

We had been grocery shopping and were busy bringing in...

What's In My Bag - Disc Golf - Tracy | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

As part of our RV travels, we play disc golf. When we choose places to stay the very first thing I do is see how many disc courses are nearby. Since retirement, this once very casual hobby has become part of our routine. We like that we can get exercise while enjoying a very fun hobby that we have played since the 1980s(In the video I state 90s and have been corrected, we dated in high school...

I have been crazy busy since we returned to our home area. I attended my crafting retreat which rocked. We took care of our annual Dr. visits. We did some work on our rentals. We ordered alot of supplies we'd been holding off on due to mail delivery limitations that are typical of RV living in campgrounds.

I visited where I worked for 21 years, which I affectionately now call MegaCorp...

Yay for more storage space! Video Length 2 min 28 sec.

Thunderbird is restricted to two week stays during their peak season so we moved up to Mount Vernon on Wednesday. We scheduled warranty work on our fifth wheel for the next day. The only major issue is a tear from a branch in our roof. It happened very recently and the dealer said it is an insurance claim to replace that repairs do not do well. So we will have to put in a claim with our...

Taking Care of Business - And The Craft Retreat! | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

When we arrived at Thunderbird, we had Thursday and Friday to take care of some tasks, then we sat tight for the holiday weekend. While hiding from the holiday revelers (we live in a campground so we were surrounded!) I spent my time packing for the retreat.

I packed ALL inks, metal dies, stencils and embossing folders as well as all of my tools. Only four (of 15) binders of stamps made...
