We spent the last week or so moving at a more frantic pace than we had really hoped to. But once we got our rig to North Carolina we knew it was time to find a place to park her while we made a trip out west to Arizona. Several months ago we had already planned this trip to Arizona to go watch a softball tournament. The only thing we were uncertain about was where were going to be when we were left for the trip.
We had guessed we would be in the Charlotte area so we had booked our flight to leave from there at 6:00 am. However, as it turned out we were in the Pinehurst NC area some 2 hours away. So we got on priceline and booked ourselves a room at the Charlotte airport. We caught the flight with no snags and have been here in Phoenix for the past couple of days.
What a contrast of weather we have here as compared to the cold, stormy and rainy Charlotte area we left. Here we have sunny warm days in the 80’s. We also used Priceline here and landed a great rate at an upscale hotel so we are enjoying our stay. It is like we have taken a vacation from our frenzied week following our retirement.
We get back to NC early on Monday morning and our task for the next couple of days once we are back will be to explore the area within one hour of the Campbell University area to find a place for us to stay for the next month or so. I really don’t think it will hit us until then that we are retired and really doing what we had dreamed about doing… full timing…
