Two weeks from today

Finally! We get to pick up our Bigfoot Silver Cloud! We bought 2 recliners for it but will only take one with us. I picked up sheets and blankets for camping in it on the way home. I bought a Keurig for it. I made cups that have the Bigfoot logo on them for coffee and tea. I attached the Bigfoot logo to a shirt and am ready to put it on a jacket too.

We have a spot rented to store it. We double-checked our camping spot for the Eggs a la Bourbon rally that we host (This will test the hubby's skills with this long camper! A tree where it makes it tricky!) last weekend. We have all the stuff for our Expedition with its towing package that we need.

We have campgrounds scheduled for the trip home.


I am sure we forgot something, but I am so excited that I finally get to see this camper in person and even sleep in it (Since the mauve paper is already loose, it may just become looser on the trip home! Ick!)

The countdown is on, although Kevin has been counting for weeks already.

Loaded one of the recliners. sheets and blankets for the camper tonight, since we will be flying to Boston on Thursday, return on Sunday, and leave to pick up the camper 2 hours later.

Congratulations. Your excitement made me think about why, or what it is, that brings many of us to undertake this addition to our lives. A portable (or in some cases permanent) home that goes, where you decide to go. For me, it's that little feeling of adventure, the unknown, the open road, change, challenge, planning, thought. It's about living a more interesting life, while having your creature comforts. Sorry to wax on so much but, hey, you started it, with your excitement !

Your excitement... I get it! I may not have a brand new camper to use, but I'm "chomping on the bit" to get out with my tiny house for the first time this year. Can't wait! Happy trails to you!

So, we bought food for the trip, a microwave, and dishes. Hubby will take his Coleman, and we can make our supper on the trip. Hubby packed the Keurig, while I packed the coffee cups and dishes for the trip. Ordered silverware (I have to have special due to a disability.) and throw some clothes into a suitcase. Hubby found the bill of sale, so we can insure the camper, got the oil changed in the Expedition, have campgrounds secured. Just ordered fleece jackets that will match the Bigfoot logos I bought.

Getting there. I am sure I forgot something. As you can see, I am not a camper; I am a glamper.

Oops, half to remember the pans, since we might actually use the stove in this camper. And, of course, a wine opener. Can't forget that.

Oh, God, I just saw I typed 'half' for "have." Excuse me, I know better.

Ed, Long time, no see. The last time we talked, we had the white Eurovan. Its tranny went out, and we bought a royal blue Eurovan. However, we discovered that US mechanics of VWs just don't know how to repair these and after 2 consecutive years of repairing the same darn expensive thing (I believe that they did not fix it right the first time and did the second time. No calls from the buyer yet.), we sold it. I found a place that sells used police vehicles. I found a Chevy Tahoe that matched our VT, but upon seeing it, we found it was beat up pretty bad. Kevin saw a white Expedition that he liked (so do I) with a heavy duty tow package, and there you have it. Then I saw the Silver Cloud mentioned here (I have developed 2 disabilities since last we saw you, Dupuytren's Contracture and Ledderhose Disease. They make my hands and feet sensitive to cold, and my fingers and toes lumpy and threatening to contract, so we plan to be snowbirds on retirement.), so it was meant to be: a tow vehicle capable of towing a Silver Cloud. It took me 2 months of trying to think how to approach (Should I say nag ?) Kevin, and happily, the Cloud was still available then, and Kevin discovered we could afford it. Both the tow vehicle and the Cloud were great deals! It will be our part-time retirement home.

So there you have it. Next week, we pick up our Silver Cloud.

I wish we could go to the fish fry and see you again, but our spring is absolutely crazy! Just got back from a conference in Savannah, GA, headed for Boston on Thursday, return on Sunday and 2 hours later, leave for Eugene to pick up the Silver Cloud. Then, a week and a half later, we fly to Las Vegas where our daughter is getting married on the 27th. And we go to KY the first weekend in May, and I need to head to IA in May too. Memorial Day weekend at our son's house with the granddaughter trying out our new camper (and us too). End of June is a conference in Denver, followed by a week of volunteering on Pine Ridge, and then vacation for 2 weeks in KY in July. That is one weekend we need to relax!

Oh, and I forgot. We host the Bourbon Egg get-together in June too. My ancestor left PA during the Whiskey Rebellion and moved to Bardstown, KY, where his still became part of Jim Beam. Hence, the reason we were in Bardstown last year and decided it was a good place to have a rally.
