So many of you mention the motor home, that I have to tell you what my husband did for me with ours. We had just purchased a new "camper" with all the bells and whistles (so that I would go too....I like comfort) before I had my surgery. Because it became increasingly difficult to travel, my husband had some land cleared on our mill pond in a neighboring county. My mother lives across the pond (lake actually) and we can just see her house from where the camper is now "living". He had electricity and water installed for comfort, bought me a wonderful swing and moved it to the edge of the pond, made ramps into and out of the old mill house where the water runs underneath, and is right now building a large tin roof building over the camper and extending the deck. The building is made so that we can upgrade in another several years again, without any damage to the old one. It will also help with the GA heat during the summer and allow us to keep the camper vented constantly. He also installed the DirectTV pole and we keep an extra receiver for when he and my daughter want to get out and I don't feel quite like it. Last, but certainly not least, he purchased new boat seats and a wonderful foot-propelled motor for our pond boat and now I can go with him once in a while. I actually caught a small fish last weekend and that was the very first time I have been fishing in any way in more than a year. I LOVED IT!
I can't wait until the new building is finished so that we can go back and enjoy. It's the perfect weather here!
Even if you can't get out and pull a camper to where you want to go, you can go on mini vacations by getting a change of scenery close to home. We love it!
