Red River South Marina & Resort

I thought I would show where I'm currently calling home. It is the Red River South Marina & Resort located along U.S. 71 just south of Bossier City, Louisiana. Except for trips every now and then on the weekends, my plan is to stay here until I hit the road sometime in early May.

Here is a picture of Freedom and Liberty with the Red River in the background. The picture was taken from the top of the levee.

I visited an optometrist today. A very good doctor with the latest tech toys. Besides the regular stuff they all do, this doctor took a retinal scan of my eyes so he will have a baseline to be used in the future. When I go back to him in about a year, he will take another one for comparison to see if anything has changed. I ordered one pair of glasses and when they come in, I'll give them my current glasses so they can put in the new prescription. That will give me two good sets and I also have the written prescription. My current prescription was stronger than needed. I think I'll say my eyes got better instead of the old optometrist making a mistake. Before hitting the road, I'll see my regular doctor and my cardiologist. Hopefully, everything will be good.
Today was a good day.

A New Beginning, Soon

My name is Darrell Goza and I will be retiring in April of 2014. My retirement plan is to travel fulltime around the United States and Canada in an RV. I will return to my home area around Thanksgiving each year to give the kids and grandkids a kiss and hug. I'll also use that time to get medical checkups for me and service check ups for the RV and truck. I purchased a 30 foot Forest River Rockwood fifth-wheel RV and a Ford F-250 as a tow vehicle at the end of November of 2013. I haven't given the RV and truck a name yet, but am leaning towards "Freedom" and "Liberty", two words that will clearly define my new traveling lifestyle. I moved into the RV during the first week of December so I can get used to it and all of its systems. Once on the road, I hope to blog every day so my family and friends will know that I'm not laying face down in a ditch somewhere. The blog posts will be about the location I'm visiting, pictures of things that interest me and comments about whatever comes to mind. It may be very boring to most people, but I hope the ones that know me may get some enjoyment out of it. There will also be a comment section, so if you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to send them in. If there are any grammar teachers out there who gets really annoyed at sentences ending in a preposition, then don't read this blog because that is one of my bad habits.
Home is wherever the RV is parked
