Life is getting down to a simplified style, enjoying the great outdoors, bbq and family. While we still get out lots, we prefer home cooking, i.e. chicken, sausages, onions, peppers and all the trimmings. We're also got our old swimming holes in both places albeit a pool in Tucson and the Schroon river in the Adirondacks.
Now, we can truly enjoy "Endless Summer" living in Tucson between November and the Adirondacks between May and November.
Despite the time, effort and expense we also love the road trips between both homes. In fact, we also have really enjoyed our overnight stays at Holiday Inn with lots of amenities and no effort. Typically, we'll drive about 400 miles a day and check in by 4pm.
We'll be dining out less (birthdays and holidays) with family. During our recent 3 months in the Adirondacks son John visited us for the Thanksgiving holiday.
