Now is the Present... a letter from the Editor!

I

t is often said, “There is no time like the present!” Why the present? Eleanor Roosevelt said it best, “Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today, today is a gift. That is why we call it the present!” This is your moment in time! Open your present and receive your gift!! As we put together thoughts and ideas for this new expanded newsletter the one thought we kept coming back to was how busy everyone was with Summer plans. It brought to mind barbecues (check out Lady Di’s recipe for ribs on Pg. 4), vacations and some really good reminiscing. Now I’ll be the first to admit that I’m the Queen of cancelled plans and good intentions. Really, I did mean to call my girlfriend from high school on her birthday, but somehow that week slipped by me. And then there was that last trip we made out west. We were supposed to take a detour to the Grand Canyon, but again the time escaped us. Plans, plans, plans, so easy to make, so easy to break! I’ve discovered that it’s the unplanned diversions that we excavate when digging through our memories: Those little jewels called “Remember When’s.” Like quick stops at road side stands for boiled Cajun peanuts. Yes, I have been known to make Nelson squeeze a 45 foot coach into a 40 ft pull off so I could buy a bag of salty, drippy, Southern Goodness. Or the Day lily sale advertised on torn pieces of cardboard stapled to Florida Sand Pines on a back road in Gainesville. I had to do some talking to get my guy to detour and spoil that magic ratio of trip time and fuel consumption. But those lovely lilies have since multiplied all throughout our gardens and wave their lovely heads each spring reminding us of an unplanned diversion. Speaking of making plans, take a trip to the Treasure Coast with our guest travel correspondent Karin Klause, she’s provided some great tips in “Highways and Byways.” And I can’t wait for you to meet Eric and Barbara, the parents of our featured Finicky-est Friends. They are true explorers that often head off the beaten path and would surely give Lewis and Clark a run for their

money. They’ve just headed out on a six month journey that covers 16 states and over 9000 miles. Many of those miles will be biked, hiked or spent kayaking down some amazing river. They’ve included stops in both Yellowstone and Teton state parks and for them home will be wherever they park their Millennium. We’ll be checking back with them in a few months and give you an update on their adventure! As I write these thoughts I pause to daydream about a summer trip we’ve yet to plan. Hiking in Utah? Sounds adventurous. Diving in Key West? That would surely get Nelson’s vote! Maybe we’ll even mix in a few weeks of Summer Camp and a weekend or two at the beach. Coffee with the sunrise, napping in the ocean breezes and sand covered toes…umm, sounds like good memory making to me! Sometimes you’ve got to make a little room in your life to receive the present. If your home is like ours, days can often begin with more plans than one could accomplish in a week. Emily Dickenson said, “Forever is composed of a lot of little nows.” I think Ms. Dickenson was encouraging us to notice the nows. And although she was no poet, my grandmother would often point out that if you try to look at tomorrow with one eye and yesterday with the other, you’ll end up cross eyed! Having a destination in mind makes the journey more worthwhile. But we often need reminding that the destination is the end...the joy is in the journey.

“Dance like no one is watching, love like you’ll never be hurt, sing like no one is listening, and live like it’s heaven 2010 Millennium H3-S3

on earth.” - William Purkey

We consider ourselves very lucky here at Millennium to be part of your journeys. We bear witness almost weekly to the culmination of someone’s dream as they take delivery of their new coach. Most of our visitors are on vacation and we frequently get to be part of their family memory making. What better way to enjoy the present than one that includes traveling the beautiful country that we live in! I would like to remind you that it’s called a Bucket List not a “Kick the Bucket List” so get busy making some plans! And by the way, if you ever make it to the Grand Canyon be sure and take a few pictures for me. Make some plans, make some memories but don’t forget to enjoy the present!

Dick and Jean are like opening the shades to let the sunlight in…..they brighten your day!! In keeping with our theme of “Carpe Diem!” we can think of no better couple that inspires us more to seize the day!

Check out the latest travels of MLC’s “Field Correspondent” and Millennium Owner Karin Klause as she takes you along on a favorite journey in South Florida. It’s the perfect time to visit the Navy SEAL Museum as we celebrate the heroes of our nation and we salute our courageous troops as they continue to wage war on terrorism.

1). Hometown(s)? We are both from Wolfeboro, New Hampshire where we have owned homes for 20 years and have had our primary residency there for the past 8 years.

Lucie. There’s also a Flying J/Pilot nearby at I - 95 and SR 68 (Exit 131B - Orange Avenue).

2). How long have been RVing? “We have been RVing for 7 years,” says Dick. “I have owned Beechcraft Bonanza airplanes for quite some time, so we did all of our traveling by air. Until one long trip when we had to drive because our airplane was down for maintenance. We found that we really enjoyed the trip! One of our Friends had a Beechcraft and also a motor home, so we thought, well if they can do both, so can we!” Dick & Jean

3). What do you enjoy most about your Millennium? “The first thing that comes to mind is the high quality of everything in a Millennium coach. And also that Millennium Luxury Coaches stands behind their product! We also really like the large, panoramic windows. Our Millennium is our first Prevost and we really enjoy it!” 4). What are some of your favorite places to go in your RV? “Pelican Lake Motor Coach Resort in Naples, Florida is our number one favorite place! We love the Southwest Florida weather and our beautiful landscaped lakefront lot.” Jean commented, “The nicest thing about Pelican Lake is the people! We have so much fun and it’s so sad when we have to leave. However, we do like to travel to New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado. We love the weather and beautiful scenery. From the Sonoran desert to the Grand Canyon it’s just spectacular!” 5). Who likes to drive and who likes to direct? Dick drives while Jean directs. Dick noted, “I like to drive 300-400 miles a day, but will drive more if we have to. Jean is an excellent navigator! The only time we got lost was when I didn’t listen to her and I managed to get us stuck in downtown Poughkeepsie, New York.” 6). Most memorable moment RV ing? “It has to be the time we drove off the ferry in Newfoundland as the sun was rising in the East. What a sight!” 7). Hobbies? “We both like to ride motorcycles. Dick has a Screaming Eagle Electraglide and I have both a Harley Streetglide and Yamaha Vstar. Probably our most memorable rides have been at Sturgis. The Needles Parkway is incredible! And the Tail of the Dragon in Tennessee and North Carolina is also quite nice. We both like to Scuba dive. The best Scuba diving we have done was at Small Hope Bay in Andros in the Bahamas, although Sir Francis Drake Try out this fabulous recipe for crock pot channel in the Virgin Islands is a very close ribs from our guest chef second. We have flown all over the United Diana Martin. States, to Canada and to southern Bahamas. Perfect for no-fuss entertaining! We have been boating virtually all our lives.” “Jean took up water coloring and Crock Pot Spare Ribs painting. She really enjoys it. She also 2 LBS boneless spare ribs 1 cup brown sugar enjoys photography. Her most recent (also works great with boneless/skinless chicken breast) 2 oz soy sauce paintings are from photos of our children 1 TBS garlic powder and grandchildren, which have been challenging and fun for her to do” said Boil the last 3 ingredients over the stove until it bubbles and fills up pan (about 3 minutes) Dick. stirring constantly, then pour over diced meat in crock pot. Cook 1 hour on high & about 2 hours on med-low. We promise it will melt in your mouth!

true gem on Florida’s Treasure Coast is the National UDT - Navy SEAL Museum. The birthplace of this elite military group, first called “Navy Frogmen”, is right here in historic Fort Pierce, Florida a lovely seaside town located along the Atlantic Ocean midway between West Palm Beach and Melbourne. The Museum is the sole repository of memorabilia, artifacts, weapons, and equipment from the Scouts and Raiders, Naval Combat Demolition Units, Underwater Demolition Teams and the Navy SEALs.

After touring the Museum, be sure to head back over the North Causeway and drive just a couple minutes south to experience the historic Fort Pierce downtown area and Marina Square where you’ll find restaurants, shopping, entertainment, festivals and a wonderful Saturday Tailgate Market! And, during the Winter Holidays be sure to visit the Festival of Trees at Marina Square, an outdoor event that features rows of brilliantly illuminated palm trees that are set in motion to music!

Let me introduce myself, I’m Mark Anthony and I’m 6, my sister Cleopatra is 7 and big brother Jerry is 10. We were all strays in need of a better lifestyle, so we chose to adopt Eric and Barbara as our parents. As soon as we joined the family, we decided that our Millennium coach was a purrrr’fect new home…….and we let our parents live there too. We love to fight over who will ride shotgun in Mom’s lap. We at times can have some pretty intense squabbles develop over this prestigious position. At rest stops Cleopatra loves to scramble into the vacant driver’s seat and curl up for a nap. The campgrounds are our favorite places and we especially enjoy the ones with the most activities—like bird watching; rabbit and squirrel chasing; bug catching (It can get dicey when it’s a wasp or bee!) and dog disdaining. When we enter a new park, we all stand on the entrance stairs and with much excitement; voice our opinion loudly of the new surroundings! Canada will always be a special favorite place because of the large population of exotic and colorful bunnies. Good times!

The SEALs, who were originally trained in Fort Pierce, played a crucial role in clearing underwater mines from the waters along the beaches of Normandy, France during World War Two. Most recently, the SEALs played a pivotal role in turning the tide in the long battle against Terrorism. The Museum is located at 3300 North A1A, North Hutchinson Island - Fort Pierce, Florida. There are two causeways in Fort Pierce - the Museum is over the North Causeway! The South Causeway will take you ... south, way south! RV parking is limited and it’s best to arrive by car. It’s just a 30 minute drive from Outdoor Resorts - St.

Our Millennium is our home from the end of April until mid November. Then we make our southern trek to our home base in Fort Lauderdale for the winter season. That’s when we as a trio reluctantly leave the coach and head to our nearby condominium- which has far less interesting surroundings, but does provide more room to maneuver and chase. We have to admit that our favorite hobbies are dining and napping in the warmth of the sunlight. It is difficult to discern which we enjoy more!

As we put together thoughts and ideas for this new expanded newsletter the one thought we kept coming back to was how busy everyone was with Summer plans. It brought to mind barbecues (check out Lady Di’s recipe for ribs on Pg. 4), vacations and some really good reminiscing. Now I’ll be the first to admit that I’m the Queen of cancelled plans and good intentions. Really, I did mean to call my girlfriend from high school on her birthday, but somehow that week slipped by me. And then there was that last trip we made out west. We were supposed to take a detour to the Grand Canyon, but again the time escaped us. Plans, plans, plans, so easy to make, so easy to break! I’ve discovered that it’s the unplanned diversions that we excavate when digging through our memories: Those little jewels called “Remember When’s.” Like quick stops at road side stands for boiled Cajun peanuts.

money. They’ve just headed out on a six month journey that covers 16 states and over 9000 miles. Many of those miles will be biked, hiked or spent kayaking down some amazing river. They’ve included stops in both Yellowstone and Teton state parks and for them home will be wherever they park their Millennium. We’ll be checking back with them in a few months and give you an update on their adventure! As I write these thoughts I pause to daydream about a summer trip we’ve yet to plan. Hiking in Utah? Sounds adventurous. Diving in Key West? That would surely get Nelson’s vote! Maybe we’ll even mix in a few weeks of Summer Camp and a weekend or two at the beach. Coffee with the sunrise, napping in the ocean breezes and sand covered toes…umm, sounds like good memory making to me! Sometimes you’ve got to make a little room in your life to receive the present. If your home is like ours, days can often begin with more plans than one could accomplish in a week. Emily Dickenson said, “Forever is composed of a lot of little nows.” I think Ms. Dickenson was encouraging us to notice the nows. And although she was no poet, my grandmother would often point out that if you try to look at tomorrow with one eye and yesterday with the other, you’ll end up cross eyed! Having a destination in mind makes the journey more worthwhile. But we often need reminding that the destination is the end...the joy is in the journey.
