It’s Happening!

We have done it!  Bought and paid for:th-1

A 40+ foot, diesel pushing, home on wheels, whom I affectionately call:  Hoo Gnu.

If you knew me at all, you might be a little shocked (see the post RV Kidding?)

It was late last night when we got it set up, so while we had electricity and heat, we did not manage to get the water hooked.  I guess the dealership assumed we wanted it winterized – clearly they didn’t know us.  We’ve settled into a local RV park to get the lay of the land, and fix any glitches before we think about hitting the road.

No definite plans yet, but I’m sure you’ll hear about them when I do.

While my friends and family reactions extend from deep concern for my health to wild enthusiasm, my husband and I have decided the whole thing is excitening (a combination of exciting and frightening).

Whatever the outcome, this is one heck of a way to break the monotony of so many years of illness.

So for now:  th-2

  1. Super excited for you! We too are about to step off the diving board into the deep end. In the final phase of working out the details before heading out the door to go pick up our first motor home. Fun times ahead for both of us.
