House FINALLY sold!!!


YAY!!! Unless you've been living under a rock you know that our house finally sold!!! We closed escrow on the 20th of December. We HAD a closing date of October 25th but that date came and went while the buyer was trying to find financing. We spent two frustrating months waiting to find out what was going to happen. In the meantime we had pretty much cleaned out the house and took everything up to our 5th wheel so we spent those two months living in our house in Florida with not a whole lot of stuff. My good friend PennYE packed up my kitchen so the only thing I had to cook with was a frying pan that was left in the dishwasher. We went out to dinner a lot or had frozen dinners that could be cooked in the microwave. For somebody that loves to cook and watches Food Network ALL the time that was a challenge.




Now here we are sitting in the Camping World parking lot(been here for 3 weeks now) waiting for this and that to be taken care of. The hitch and toolbox were installed today and some other things were taken care of. The refrigerator was unable to run on electric, it was only running on propane. That kinda sucked because we have free 50Amp electric here and have to pay for propane. It's nice to have that fixed. This dealer has been AMAZING with what they've done for us. Our rig sat here on their lot for a year and a half and they are still honoring all work that needs to be done. They even replaced the television in the living room that didn't work. Now we have a really nice HDTV that they installed. We don't have our satellite yet or internet but the TV channels come in pretty nice here and we are using the free WiFi from the hotel across the street. When you add in the free site and free electric we're doing pretty good. Granted, the view isn't the best but we can't complain too much.


We are anxious to leave here and start our adventure. We have a lot we want to see. From here we're headed to Atlanta to have our internet and television satellite installed and from there to Kentucky to have a cover put on the truck. After that we don't have ANY commitments until the 20th of May for our grandson's birthday in Utah so we're contemplating where to go. We do know that we're going to Texas to visit John (son) but don't know how long we're going to be there. This life is the BEST!!

So good to see an updated - be sure to post your service review at http://www.rvservicereviews.com/

I did after getting work done at SW in New Braunfels, TX. It helps folks down the road when they are looking for a service spot.

Having spent 3 weeks parked at a service facility, I know the feeling. It's only going to get better from here as you get on the road.

Hope we meet someday!!

Deb, I can see by the old mechanic in the back of the truck, why it's taking so long to get the work done...
You should have found a place that had younger folks to do the work!!! :)
