While some of you are having fun RVing because you are full-timers or early birds we have to wait for the Spring before we start our travels ,and this is due to 2 main reasons:
One – A staying permit for non residents is only for 6 months , we are RVing since 2002 every year for 4-5 months and chose to RV in the summers leaving the “hot” States till we decide to switch seasons.
Two- We have family back home that we like to see and spend time with.
The winters in Israel are mild so the out door activities include hiking,going to the beach ,picnicking ,planning the next RV trip, spending time with the family and attending kids / grand kids events.
I am sure you all enjoy taking a part of your family member on his/her special event like graduation,prom,wedding or any other big or small celebrations,it is specially important because some times we have to chose between being away on a RV trip or making it to the event,it is even more difficult when the family members are scattered around and we can not make it to each and every event.
Saying all that ,we try to attend EVERY event of our family member during our stay in Israel, yesterday was such an event, our 10 year old grand daughter attended an athletics competition in her area and out of 4 schools (120 girls) she won 2 gold medals and one bronze.
It was amazing to see all these kids do their drills,how serious they take it and how supportive they are ,things we see rarely when it comes to grown ups….
We were very happy for her to get this award that come after years of training,but we would be equally happy if she would do her best and not be on the podium…
