A Visit With Fulltiming Friends

100_4889Last winter in Florida we met up with a couple in our fulltiming  Class of 2011 – Toni and Daryle.

This winter we both presently are in the same general area of Texas.  We were anxious to see them and their new rig.  Their first year they were living in a truck camper and pulling a motorcycle trailer.  This year they have ditched the bike and swapped for a large fifth wheel with three slideouts.  These comfy looking recliners they are sitting in never would have fit in the truck camper.  We didn’t get the impression that they are having any regrets about the change.  It was great to see them again and talk about the past year’s travels and our respective upcoming travel plans.

They were camped in a park that apparently used to be a citrus grove.  They said we could pick some ruby red grapefruits from the trees next to their fifth wheel.  You never quite know what to expect with fruit from citrus trees that no longer are being tended, but these were fantastic.  We juiced them and it was best grapefruit juice we ever had.  Toni and Daryle will visit us at our park this week.  We will have to twist their arms to bring some grapefruit with them.
