Quiet Monday

I turned the apartment keys into the office on Sunday afternoon and that changed my life on Monday morning. The busyness came screeching to a halt. Wow! I didn't have to run over there today. What was I going to do?
It wasn't difficult to stay busy for most of the day. I did a load of laundry, cleaned and vacuumed, rearranged the kitchen counter 3x, paid some bills, walked a bag of trash to the dumpster and made a post office run. Not exciting stuff, but not bad for a Monday :)

I also did some research on plane fares to Sioux Falls, SD. Our intent was to head there in the Spring once the weather warmed up but Rick doesn't feel comfortable waiting that long. The coach is licensed and insured in South Dakota and our mailing address has been established in South Dakota. The only thing left is our drivers licenses. His concern is if we should be involved in an accident and not have the proper licensing. Would the insurance company have an out and not pay? SD does not require a special license to drive a 40' motorhome. North Carolina requires a non-commercial class B which we do not have. Therefore, we're not properly licensed to drive this coach. While we're parked the next 2 months, it's a non-issue. Once we head south the beginning of January, it could become one. Sooo, it looks like we'll take an overnight jaunt up there to become legal sometime before we pull out. We'll still head north in the spring, but may forgo SD until another time when we can spend more time there and explore the western part of the state too. We have nothing in writing, nothing set in stone, we're just going to wing it :)

That's the part I'm looking forward to.
