100,000 Miles

Back to 00000

On July 31, 2012 the odometer of “The Breeze” read 00000 as you can see in the next pic.  100,000 miles!  How did that happen so fast?

I was traveling on US Highway 26 on my way from Ochoco Divide Campground to Prineville to do some shopping.  Since I don’t see too much traffic I decided to come to a complete stop and take a picture of that fantastic moment in time.  This is where I was.  I guess you can’t ask for a better spot when turning 100,000 miles.

I purchased “The Breeze back in April, 2010 .  Since then I have:

  • Put 21,855 miles on it
  • Started Fulltiming on July 12, 2010
  • Filled with 2,378 gallons of gasoline at an average cost of $3.53 Yes it is about 9.2 miles per gallon. OUCH!!!

I have had a lot of great times seeing new places and meeting great people.  I have established a lot of new friends all across the country and even into Canada and Mexico as well.

Do it now if you can!!!

If anyone is on the fence as to whether they should fulltime or not I would suggest give it a try as soon as possible.  It was the best decision I ever made.  I just wished I had done it sooner.

  1. We like all those zeros too. Congrats on two years of fulltimimg. Wish you were going to the BF but will see you at “Q” next winter.

  2. Congratulations! I wish I had done it sooner too. That said, I’m very happy with 1 yr. 3 mos. full timing under my belt.

  3. I went full-time only a few months before you did and I wish I had done it sooner too. I just didn’t know about it. Oh, well. I’m doing it now. Yay!

  4. Congratulations Jim! You are certainly enjoying your rig and full time life! good for you. So many interesting experiences and people to enjoy. Carry on as you have. We wish you good health and many more miles!

  5. I easily understand how you gathered all those miles. Having loads of FUN and adventure. Also, not to mention sharing all your travels with us! Thank you for that. Vicarious works for me right now. 🙂

  6. Oh I so wish we could take the plunge and fulltime, we just can’t. With our age difference (13 years) we probably never will. I don’t qualify for Medicaid for 13 more years and that will put hubby at 78. Unfortunately we did not save in our younger days (married to other people) and had lots of debt when we got together. But we have had wonderful vacation every year we have been together, and we are part-timing it on weekends and on vacation leave and loving it. If we won the lottery (which we don’t play) I figure we need $250,000.00 in the bank and we could full time for a nice 6 years, and then return home. Enjoy your travels, I enjoy living vicariously through you and others out there on the road.

  7. Fantastic Jim; I’ve never gotten to do that exactly, but have done quite well for a single woman of 72. This year I started volunteering at State Parks so I can afford this life style. YOu were my inspiration to do that. Thanks!! Pam P

    • I hope you are enjoying your job at the State Parks. Workamping can be very enjoyable and yes it can help you to afford our lifestyle. Now that you have gained some experience you might want to look for a position that pays. There are a lot of paying jobs out there too.

    • Hi Pam,

      Sometimes workamping helps is afford traveling. I am glad you got your feet wet at the State Park. It is a fun job, don’t you think?
