January 26, 2015 – What the Plan, Stan?

We started this blog in the summer/fall of 2013 and really have not done much to it.  It is now time to move out.

For the past 21 months we have been living in Chowchilla, CA in our 5th wheel and other than that living pretty much a normal life.  Working during the week and enjoying our weekends, playing golf, knitting and seeing Geoff.  Just doing the normal stuff of life.

About 8 months ago we reviewed where we were financially and where we wanted to be when we take the plunge of leaving our jobs, traveling and living off our retirement savings while working at lower paying jobs.  We did not think we would be able to pull this off and start in the spring of 2015.  So we went with Plan B.  Vicki stepped up to the plate and thought she could continue working at home and let me “retire” and start out our new life of traveling.  This has some limitations.  Vicki needs to have a reasonable strong cell phone signal allowing her to keep working and we will need to stay out in the west.  So that is the plan, Stan.

In mid April I will leave my job in the Central Valley of CA and we will move our home to the very north-east part of Cali in the small town of Likely.  I will be working at an RV park and golf course.  It is called Likely Place Golf & RV Resort.  Literally this is in the middle of no where.  Sixty three people live in Likely as of the 2010 US Census and the big town north of Likely is Alturas has 2,827.  Alturas is where we will shop for groceries etc… Likely is at 4,449 feet so we should be out of the worst of the summer heat. This job will last from early May to early October when it gets too cold to golf.  We plan to take a two-day trip to check things out in the near future. We should be good to go with cell phone reception but need to make sure.

So that is the big doings right now.   44 more work days from now but who is counting?

    We have friends that stopped in Likely and stayed at that park to play golf. They had a great time, so I added it to our list of places if we are in the area. You have a great plan!!
