Kenny and Nancy call Oconto, Wisconsin home during the summer boating season where together they enjoy recreational boating on the Oconto River and the Bay of Green Bay. When boating season is over they become snowbirds and head south for the winter in their Monaco Windsor luxury motor coach named OWFISH.

Kenny lived and traveled in OWFISH with his late wife Barbara from 2002 until she had a disabling stroke in 2011 and passed away the following year. From then the OWFISH set, except for a short trip in 2013, until Kenny started traveling again with his new wife Nancy in 2014.

Back to Palacios, TX

We left Biloxi at 6:15 this morning on our return trip to Palacios, TX. We stopped in Lake Charles, LA for a crayfish lunch and arrived back to Palacios at 5:15 this evening. While in Biloxi, we checked out 4 other RV parks and found one that Barb and I both liked to stay at next winter season.

Getting off the road

Barb and I have been on the road now going on our 7th year. We (I mostly) keep thinking about settling down some place and be like most of the other people here in America, glued to a community and a small piece of land. This is our second winter in the small coastal town of Palacios, TX and we like it here, during the winter anyway. We even found ourselves a nice little house here in town that we both liked and obtained a pre-approval from a mortgage company. I even got estimates of what it would cost to have our boat shipped down here from Oconto, WI. Being on the bay, the low cost of living, and the better weather down here most of the year, this would be an ideal place for boating. We could go out to the GIWW (Gulf Intercoastal Water Way), turn to starboard (right) and it's 200 miles to Mexico. Or we could turn to port (lift) and it's 200 miles to Louisiana.

We got the paperwork from the mortgage company today and then asked ourselves, "what are we doing?" We love our lifestyle on the road and are not ready to give it up. We are rebuilding our boat to live aboard for several months at a time then cruise the Great Lakes and maybe even the Great Circle Route. That's the rivers and waterways the form a continuous 6500 mile loop around the Eastern USA including the Great Lakes, Mississippi River, the Gulf of Mexico with the GIWW to Key West, up the Atlantic coast with it's Intercoastal Water Way to Hudson Bay and River, through the Erie Canal and back into the Great Lakes.

Well, we came to our senses and canceled the loan and we are going to continue with our adventures. If we do decide to buy a new home someday, it will have a big diesel engine in the back and 8 tires on the ground.
