Full Time RV'er, Full Time Lee Ann?


Lee Ann

Recommended Posts

Wife and I are retiring in a couple of months and going full time in RV.  I want to let Lee Ann have the freedom she deserves after 64 years of not totally expressing herself.  Has anyone had like experience and what should Lee Ann be concerned about.  She is not a flashy person and just wants to blend in and enjoy retirement.  She is fighting Parkinson’s  and wants to enjoy as much as possible. Will this work for her?

Sincerely,

Lee Ann

I don't see why not. It's how I approach life. I'm just me. I'm not flamboyant and go about my business. Very few people care one way or the other. You'll probably get some static here and there, but it will be far outweighed by the good people you meet and the freedom to be who you are.

 

Hugs!

Hi dear.  A few years back(2014) my wife and i had a long cross country trip in and RV.  It was a great opportunity to not only see the amazing sites this land holds but a great confidence builder for both of us.  We went late in the season which removed much of the crowding one can find.  Crossing the mountains can be an issue due to snow at high elevations.  

   The ladies rooms at most campgrounds had separate screened stalls for the showers so that was never an issue.

Overall apart from being a bit cramped, and we got used to that it was wonderful   Pick your outfits out carefully as big closets simply don't exist.🙂 

I wrote a bunch of posts here as we stayed at night campsites.  They were titled "Travels with Charlie" if they are still here somewhere.  We can certainly travel while trans.

Enjoy your journey.

 Oh bye the way welcome!

 

Hugs,

Hello @Lee Ann and welcome!  This sounds like lots of fun!  You're never too old to be true to yourself.  I've read Charlize's posts and they are great.  Makes you want to get an RV and go.  Not being flashy is normal in my eyes.  Look around, most women blend in with others.  I rarely get all "dolled up" any longer.  I'm sorry to hear of the Parkinson's but don't let it slow you down.  Please join in the conversation.

 

Cheers, 
Jani

Thanks for all of the very sweet reassuring comments.  I had a very good experience today like many I hope to have in the future.  My wife and I went to my doctor’s appointment and then shopping.   I had on a pair of women’s Lee jeans that I purchased especially for today that fix very well.  Put together with nice button down shirt and sandals.  Definitely more feminine look in public then I every had in the past.  My wife said I looked very nice and much better than my usual man jeans.  Wish I would have had makeup, painted nails and toes, and a much more feminine blouse but that I hope will all come later.  No one said a word about the jeans and I felt very comfortable.  Small victory!!!!  Also first thing after retirement, I plan on going the next day to get pierced ears.  Can’t wait.  I hope all of you have a blessed and happy weekend.

Hi @Lee Ann Welcome to our little family.😁

I don’t have an RV so I can’t relate to that exact type of experience. I remember camping just after starting to present full time when hair growth was more an issue. Shaving with an electric razor was going to become my biggest concern while camping with my wife. You have a much better situation with an RV which is more private than a tent like we have. My electric razor was so loud so I was going to have to use a disposable razor if we ended up camping next to someone else. In a tent, even a disposable razor can be an issue but likely not an issue in an RV. At a popular KOA this would have been an issue. I was so concerned about even the smallest of things back then. Back then I thought every little thing was going to “out me” and all hell would break loose.😜

 

I think you’ll be just fine being yourself as long as you don’t get too hung up like I once was. As long as you’re considerate to others and just be yourself, you can enjoy the time of your life. This can be a very freeing time for you and your spouse. You deserve this. I wish you the best on your upcoming journey.

 

Warmest Regards,

Susan R🌷

      I'm puzzled by this chapelle backlash. He had a wonderful relationship with daphne. If one watched the special, at the end, chapelle informed us that he is setting up a fund for daphne's child. I don't think that's transphobia, rather, I think that is the best humanity has to offer.   As for trans related jokes, bring em on I say. Having a laugh at myself or feeling a bit of sarcastic pain is good for my soul. It reminds me that I am living in this world....which of course has always been the ultimate goal.

      Sounds like a great outfit!  I busted out my knee highs last weekend.   ...and ya, looking good ladies. I just got back from Target, and noticed my body is beginning to give me away.  I think I'm in a place where the gender I'm presenting is largely in the eyes and ears of the beholder.  Not as cut and dry as I once thought it would be.

      Welcome @MaybeImSkylar ! I'm glad you found the forum. I've found it to be a wonderful place with people who give loving support, advice & acceptance. I think you will too. You might find a gender therapist helpful, I know mine has helped me. A book called You & Your Gender Identity by Dara Hoffman Fox is another great way to explore your gender. They read it on YouTube also. I hope you enjoy your journey exploring your gender. Oh, your English seems fine to me.   Hugs! Delcina

      I'm sorry that is not right that she took it.  Can you get it back or get another one maybe?

      I got thing where I bring a bagel with me to work for breakfast. A couple months ago the owner happened to see it on my desk and asked for a piece. Besides being the person who signs my paychecks he’s really a great guy so I happily let him  have some. Since then he would randomly come by in the mornings looking for his piece of bagel so I’ve been making sure to always have one if I really wanted it or not. Now and again I would see him in back working with techs and would slide in drop if a piece and go back to my desk. He always thanks me for the mini-breakfast but today instead of just generically thanking me I got “thank you girlfriend”. I admit it was a little awkward but I feel really affirmed that he sees nothing but the woman I truly am.

      Okay, I know the name of this thread is "What are you wearing today," but tomorrow, I am going out to dinner with a few girlfriends, so I'm already thinking about what to wear.  I think I'll be wearing a red, knee length pencil skirt, a black V-neck top and black knee hi boots.  Yippee, it's finally boot wearing weather here in New Jersey.   And ladies, let me just say, you all look so terrific.🙂

      That kinda sucks but it doesn’t sound like it’s your problem to figure out. You just need to take care of yourself and get well.

      Well. I haven't posted up the real kicker in my world. It is me, my store manager and the commercial manager that are out. The store manager lost his dad Wed night to Covid. and now he has pneumonia. SO he is out the full 14 days. We have one other manager that knows how to open the store. The other assist. We have 2 other managers that can close but one only works Weekends.  Don't know what the upper manager(s) are doing.     When it rains it pours.   Kymmie

      🇺🇸Good☕️afternoon🏳️‍⚧️everyone🦋 I seen one of my old Battlion Chiefs at the training center this morning. He said, I look like a lumberjack from the front, and a lesbian from the back. 😂 😆 He has no idea how true the statement is.   In his defense, this is how I was dressed for a light rain day.
