Sunset clouds San Pedro boondocking area Lake Amistad NRA
Well it's the first day of March and the weather's been really nice, although it's starting to get just a little bit to warm. I've checked the weather north of me and it's still getting kind of cold so I don't want to get much farther north than I am now. it looks like I may stick around here in the Del Rio area until about the middle of March.
I think this is going to be the longest I've stayed in one place since I started full timing, and I have to admit it's getting kind of boring here because there's not all that much that interests me to do. But in the interest of trying to see the good side of every situation I'm telling myself that I don't have to be excited to be somewhere, after all when living in a home its not exciting to be there every day. And there's other things that are also important such as, safety, convenience, saving money, peace and quiet, contentment, and not seeing another RV when you look out the window.
So San Pedro boondocking area has all of those good things but there's just not very many fun things for ME to do. Now if you have a boat and like to fish you could spend all winter in Del Rio, or if you like to sit outside in the shade and read, or fiddle around inside the RV with your hobby's this is also a great place to be.
So I'm trying to come to grips with the fact that while full timing sometimes I'm going to be moving from place to place and there will be lots of neat things to do, and lots of things to take pictures of. And other times the situation may call for me to sit in one place for a month or two where I'm going to see all the neat stuff the first week, run out of things to take pictures of, and have to find other ways of entertaining myself.
Some full-time RVers move every few days, and consider staying somewhere for a week as too long. Other full timers go from point "A" to point "B" every winter and then turn around and go back to point "A" in the summer, that would be your classic snowbirds. For me it looks like I'm going to be some of both, leaning towards moving more often.
It's taken a while for me to come to that realization and it will probably take even longer for me to accept and embrace it. But it looks like that will be the way I end up living, at least at this point in time.
