hello everyone ... just getting started here and already, i appreciate all of your valuable advice and insights and support! i saw on the Sightings thread where someone commented that i "had the fever" ...
you are correct!!! when i first saw these little beasties, i wanted one RIGHT NOW! i saw folks talking about looking for six months or even a year!
i just dont have that kind of patience and i decided i needed one yesterday.
we haven't vacationed since getting married two years ago and i wanted to take back my freedom and get out there and enjoy all of the beautiful place this country has to see - but at a reduced rate!
short story long ... i decided for whatever reason (after reading hundreds of threads/pages and taking lots of notes) that i had to have one of those cool little U Haul CTs.
well, late last week i got a tip (a huge thanks to Greg!) at 10am about a U Haul in Riverside. by 11am i had borrowed a truck from an office mate (i dont even have a TV yet!), and was on the 7-hour trip south. hasty perhaps, but i took the advice i got and decided not to let this one get away.
a mere 16 hours later ... i returned home with our new (old) egg! i was delirious (initially from excitement, in the end, from sleep deprivation and a couple of short-cuts gone wrong), but very happy. i got it site unseen, saw it in the dark, the trailer lights
didn't work, etc ... but it was a good deal and the glass and trailer are in good/solid shape. interior ... well, gonna need some love. ok a lot of love, but its all good! we have you fine folks and all of these amazing online resources - and - we have a CT '13!
we decided on a name (i only had 16 hours to come up with it!) that represents the new freedom this little fella will afford us.
so without any further adieu ...
we proudly present
"The Bald Eggle"
