Terry Weaver – Squirrels, Rabbit Holes, and Flying Elephants

Happy Birthday to Me!

Always try to make people smile and feel happy. You never know what they may be going through.
Don’t bite when a bark will do.
Always make time to take a walk, and get into nature.
Anytime is a good time for a nap.
You’ll get more treats when you’re nice.
Take time to smell the roses, as well as anything else that you can smell.
Always make time to play.
Be grateful.
Live in the moment.
Enjoy the journey.

Tobi Whitney – The Nomad Life and Baseball

Tobi and Jeff met as freshmen at UMASS Amherst and married soon after graduating. After they decided not to have children, thoughts went to retiring early and exploring the world. When Tobi retired as a flight attendant in 2022, free travel across the globe is now an opportunity. At the time, Jeff was mostly retired, working 10 hours a week remotely.  So, they sold their condo and hit the open road in a camper with their cat Milo to see the US and Canada.

After 16 months of living full-time on the road, they’re ready to embark on another new adventure.  This is one that will take them across the globe to Italy.  There Jeff will apply for his citizenship by descent and they plan on securing short-term leases while exploring different cultures throughout the country.

37 Days

During our first week, at our first Left-Right-Center game, we met a couple that we just knew we had a connection with.  Isn’t it amazing how sometimes you just feel a vibe with people.  You just meet them, yet you feel like you have known them for your entire lifetime.  Well, that was Jason and Sara Brelsfoard.  They sat next to us during the game and we immediately connected.  Jason had us laughing from the time he said hello to the time he said good-bye to us that night.  Sara may have been slightly embarrassed on occasion, but she seemed to take everything in stride.

They own what Jason calls a “small” 800-acre farm in central Illinois.  Sara is also a massage therapist.  Jason was immediately intrigued by our full-time RV lifestyle.  He loves what he does, but recognizes that life is short.  He wants to be able to live and enjoy life, not just work until he dies.

We made sure that Jason and Sara made it to trivia the next night and began sitting with them at each campground function that we were at together.  We’d stop by their site and chat and they would do the same.  They came to listen to me speak and bought a couple of my books.  They really did feel like family.
