Preparing for a New Style of Travel

Yup, were still alive, even though it's been a couple of weeks since hearing from us. Just living day to day life and preparing for a big move. Big Move you say?? I'll explain. With Sheryl's back issues, we've decided to give up the truck and 5th wheel and move to a Motorhome. The 3/4 ton truck has just been beating poor Sheryl (and me) to death, especially when just running around town.
Of course the first step was to find a Motorhome we liked at a price with in our budget, this meant an older one, but of course in good shape. After weeks of scouring the Internet and visiting dealers, we settled on one we found in TX. After working with the dealer by phone, a deal was struck and financing approved. Now we just have to take a trip down to look it over and if all is good, make the purchase. I'll save the type and pictures for after we pick it up.
Next on the agenda was a tow vehicle. Sheryl contacted her brother in KS, as he had acquired their mom's car after her death a few years back. He was not really using it, so they struck a deal and we made a mad dash to pick it up this week. Overall the car is in good shape and just needs alittle TLC. It's a 2002 Chevy Cavalier and the good thing is, it can be towed 4 down.
So we are on our way to a new to us rig and way of travel. The motorhome and car should make traveling and exploring the country much more comfortable.
We'll be heading out on Wed to look at and hopefully buy our new home, if so, we'll be coming back here to OKC for a week then back down to Dallas for the birth of our new grandson, fixing to be a busy few weeks, and much more to write about.

Ok, that's it for this episode, we'll see you next time right back here.

You'll love the motorhome, everytime you set up and take down in a campsite. Plus having the head inside is a super nice thing when traveling.

Hope it all comes together and you get a wonderful deal. Enjoy that new grandson!
