Rain, rain, go away!

This weather is just crazy, we sold the house a week ago and drove home (to the coach) in the rain.  And it has rained almost continually since.  We've had a couple days when it just drizzled a bit but most days it rained hard all day and night.  The fields all around are like lakes.  Finally might see some sun tomorrow through the weekend.  But it's so wet everywhere it's just nasty.
So, Tuesday we leave for Cedar Key, FL.  We plan to meet up with Clarke & Elaine (  and spend 10 days or so there.  They have been fulltiming for over a year so it'll be good to get some stories and advice from them.  Then we'll meander up through Florida maybe around Crystal River, Ocala Forest, then up to the Suwanee River.  Should find some nice trails to ride the RZR on.  Scared to ride it around here, might sink in the mud.
Then we'll head home in time to spend a couple days in New Orleans at the French Quarter RV Resort so we can watch Scott run his first marathon.  Go Scott!
After that we'll spend a few days in Thibodaux then head west.
So far fulltiming is working out pretty good, even not being able to get out much.  Cindy has been visiting her mom a lot helping her. 
Today we spent some money getting our eye exams and glasses done.  Then we went to Scott's to let in the a/c guy to repair his heater.  We don't use our heaters much down here but when it doesn't get over 40 during the day it's nice to have a heater.  Then Cindy picked up Ella from school.  She enjoyed a couple of the last of our oranges, a satsuma and a "knife orange" as she calls the Louisiana sweet (similar to a valencia but sweeter) since you need a knife to peel it.
I'm typing this on my new Logitech mini wireless keyboard.  Nice, what's really great is now I can put my laptop out of the way and use the wireless Keyboard and mouse and my 22" monitor.  Really gives me much more space on my "desk".  Got it for $24 + free 2 day shipping with Amazon Prime (thanks for the suggestion Clarke).  The free 2 day shipping will be great when we need something on the road, plus I was able to add our kids to my account so they can benefit from it also.
Well that's it for now.  Look for another update when we get to Cedar Key.
