Greg and I had been salivating for our first big road trip in our little UHaul
. The big trip began last week, we left SC and drove to Iowa. The first 7 hours and 1 minute were in driving rain. Greg took the original UHaul
rental manuel driving directions literally and went about 45 mph...I counted leaves on trees and waved at everyone that passed us mouthing "d#%n camper."
After the rain stopped and hubby decided indeed Paddy would continue to follow us, he did speed up a bit. In Kentucky at a rest stop, a young guy came running over and told us had just bought a CT like ours and wanted a tour. In Missouri at a quick stop, I came out of the restroom, couldn't find a sales person to buy my candy bar, and found Greg in the camper with the two clerks, they wanted to know where they could rent one. As we traveled north, we got lots of thumbs ups and smiles as folks drove past us. Except for some wet bedding from the rain, we had a 1300 mile great trip.
The best happened when we arrived in Storm Lake. My sister found a for sale
ad for an 86 mint condition Uhaul
like ours in Hastings, Mn. I called my best friend in Stillwater, Mn., about 40 miles from Hastings, told her it was one of those "meant to be's" and she needed to buy it so we could have a rally
...tah day!....she bought it and they are in it this weekend. I had actually wanted to buy it so Greg and I could have his n her UHauls, but this is the next best thing.
So there is our story. We love being part of this fiberglassrv family.
