I always get a little heart pang whenever I read of anyone "hanging up the keys". Someday we will all face that decision... :'(

Me too.  I saw my aunt/uncle go through it and it broke my heart.  We will all be faced with that someday, I just hope it is much later rather than sooner.

I didn't get an opportunity to meet Fred and Daisy but I wish them well.

My  thoughts exactly!  I told Fred and Daisy  they can run but they can't  hide, we have motorhomes!  We will miss them desperately!

We are sorry to hear that Fred and Daisy are hanging up the keys.  We know the feeling as we are moving ourselves to accommodate my health issues.  We wish them the best and hope that they can spend quality time back home in Maine!

Hey, guys, it's not so bad.  :)   We hung up our keys a couple of years ago and life really does go on, just in a different manner.  The real tragedy would have been if we had not followed our heart and bought the motorhome in the first place.  Lots and lots of memories of good times with good friends for many years.   We wish our good friends, Fred and Daisy and Jim and Pat Godward, many happy times to come with their families.

Well, now we have a really good reason to travel to Maine.


In my e-mail reply to Fred I asked him to be sure and let all of us know where "Back East"
truly is.  We hope to be in Maine sometime next summer and we just might bring the fun
to their location.  I have not heard back from him, but I expect he is busy with more pressing
details.

So far we have not faced up to giving up the MH but it will have to come in the not too distant future.  A big part of that decision will be how the various insurances, Medicare and others, handle the need for Oxygen when I travel as opposed to not needing it at home in the Portland area.  No Oxygen or high cost will mean no travel.  :-(

Sorry Larry, as Ned says we're going back to Maine.  Reason we're selling the MH is that the state is not very RV friendly, and winter weather is brutal on them.  Our nephew has an apartment ready for us to move into, and no place to park the monster.  It was just another sign that it was time for us to leave the adventures.  We will miss it and all the wonderful people we have met along the way.  Our lives have been so enriched because of them.  But right now in our lives, we need the family more.  I'll pop in now and again to keep track of everyone, and we so encourage anyone coming to Maine in the future to give us a shout and maybe we can meet for a cuppa or dinner or something.  Thanks all of you for the many kind thoughts written here.  Love each and every one of you.

Daisy and Fred,

We'll miss you when we travel west again, but do stay in touch here.  It just wouldn't be the same without you.

Yes, Ned will try to stay in touch.  We were so hoping to see you and Lorna again and so many others at Catalina, but just have to do it now and get settled in before the snow flies.  Much as we wanted to though, we just couldn't wait until everyone came back from their summer trips.  Who knows, we still have a daughter in Appleton, and maybe we'll get back there during the summer sometime.  Then we can catch up when you come North again.

I called this morning and made my RV site reservation!!! Can't wait to spend the week with all of you...My DH mentioned recently that he definitely wanted to go to the Moab rally in 2015 and then I learned from reading this forum thread that y'all have decided to go to Palo Duro....sounds great!  We'll be there with bells on, and a good deal of readiness for your fun happy hours and dinners! 
a couple of years ago when we drove our RV (at that time a spanking new Itasca Reyo...we've since put 25,000+ miles on it!) to the
southeast to visit friends, we had in mind to stop at Palo Duro but ended up flying by to a different destination. So I've always wanted to spend time at the Canyon...it'll be much more fun with all of you!  We don't tow a car, so we might have to hitchhike with some of you to get places while there, but you're always wonderfully generous.  See ya in May!

A short video clip I found on the Smithsonian Facebook page.  It shows some of the geography of Palo Duro, then branches off to some other interesting places in Texas.  Perhaps another Texas Rally will encompass some of these. . . .
