I share the sentiments and good wishes for you and Irene as expressed by the other forum members.    We just returned from a  nine day RV trip two hours ago.   Now you two can enjoys those shorter trips from time to time and not have to wait for vacation to travel. 

Hal often says,  "I don't know how I had time to work with all the fun things that fill our days."   

Enjoy the wonderful times ahead.

I think your statement is very good for everyone to keep in mind when doing life.

Thank you for your kindness over the many years here on the PC forum.  And thank for you for your encouragement.  I do hope to manage my retirement in a very useful manner, both for us with our household, the people around us, and also the really big picture if you get what I mean.

Ron, I too wish you best in retirement.  Reading your posts for years now, Im not much worried about you making good use of it.  I didnt exactly retire I got retired at age 53 when my company was sold and moved from Ohio to Texas.  I did some consulting work for two years when I could start receiving my pension at age 55.  Unlike some other officers, I exercised and kept my stock options rather than cashing them in.  So we bought a bigger motorhome and travelled, travelled, travelled.  Guess I could have found a lesser job and kept working, but now I wouldnt have changed a thing. 

Like it says at end of all my posts, I remember very few of the things that Ive spent money to buy, but I remember all of the places that Ive spent money to see.

Great job!  Covering the DVD player has been on my list and your solution looks perfect.  We have a similar ottoman (from QVC) and use it as a trash container/footrest/extra seat.  Your idea of taking out the cutting board made me think that one could also replace it with a slide out spice holder.

Ron, we have been gone for a week in our 2350 enjoying the fall weather and I am just now reading these posts.  You wrote:

I now have time for it for I got laid off last Tuesday from Motorola Solutions after 38 years there.  It really was perfect timing.  I got a nice severance package which I considered to be a very nice parting gift.  I am a free man now like most of you are so these little projects are play time for me.

Let me just add my congratulations to those of others posted on this forum.  Although I must admit I occasionally miss the action of my former life, I feel blessed to no longer be a participant in the daily work scene.  Like me, you seem to have a lot of interests and things to bring joy to your life.  I am familiar with your church and the leadership it has brought to church life in reorienting much of America.  What a great opportunity to stay involved and active!   Somewhere along the way, we tend to let life become our work instead of a resource to increase the joy of our life.  It is a much different corporate world than you entered almost forty years ago.  I am so glad to be able to get up every day and do pretty well what I want to do without the burden of having to constantly respond to the demands of the workplace. 

For some, this transition is easy and for some it is not so easy.  I have learned enough about you from your postings to know it will be a blessing to your life to have more of the most fleeting commodity on this planet:  time. 

Congratulations and enjoy the journey!   Lots of places out there in this country and time to experience, not just see them, is a gift.

Nicely done!  My favorites are the ottoman and that drop leaf table.

Well we've owned our used 2350 and done all the little tweaks we can think of.  Thought I would share them.  I hope I can add the photos in the right order. Generally, when I say "we", that means my husband executed my idea😃 Smile.

We removed the cutting board that we didn't use and replaced it with a metal silverware compartment to give us a little more utensil storage.

We removed the coffee pot shelf.  Took the wood and made a shelf at the foot of the corner bed to hold a projection clock and little stuff you remove at night.

We attached wire baskets under those little corner upholstered shelves to put our tablet, phones or papers in.  (Don't leave stuff in them when driving).

We replaced the original tv and took the board behind it that matched our cabinets to make a cover for the ugly, naked DVD player in the bed area. Now it looks finished.

A bamboo silverware caddy from Bed, Bath & Beyond mounted to the wall beside the sofa holds those remotes.

We found a nice drop leaf table that folds to about 6" wide to replace the cumbersome, heavy table that was included with the PC.  It matches perfectly, stores behind the driver seat when traveling, is easy for me to set up and opens either one or two leafs for a nice dining area or just for working with one leaf up.

We found a nice ottoman that is small enough to get around with the slide in while traveling, but works for a foot rest with the sofa and the recliner with slide out.  The top lifts for much needed storage, flips to make a coffee table and functions for extra seating.
