Now Reality is Setting in

The house deal has one more hurdle to go through and it will be closing time.

We have reserved a space at a local RV park that will be close by so we can complete any unfinished business if necessary.

We have sent all the forms to Escapees to get enrolled with their mail forwarding service.

Movin In

We are actually putting items into the motorhome! It’s a good thing we don’t have to move any large items as it is too blasted hot now. 39 days of triple digit temperatures. Wish we could have planned for a fall move.

Yes, Dianna is carrying pictures into the rig. We found and made room for our favorites, don’t want to give up those pictures.

All of our family has spoken for all the heirlooms and most of the household items so that will help in not getting a storage facility.

The real reality is just around the corner.

We’re Almost There!

Just a few items to do then we will close on our house August 12. It seems like a long time since we put this plan into action. Now it’s just about to be completed.

Don’t ever say “I wish, it would be nice or someday we would like”. You will never get it done thinking like that. Make a plan, follow that plan and guess what? It happens!

Another part of our plan was to be in a motorhome that we would feel like it was our home and had some of the extras that made it a home for us.

That part of the plan came together this weekend also. A very busy weekend. We took delivery of our new for us motorhome.

Kountry Star

This is a 2008 Newmar Kountry Star. We had been looking for one that would have as many features/options as we could get in a used rig. This one came real close so we went for it and now we are the proud parents of this find.

We took a maiden voyage with the Kountry Star this weekend to the Guadalupe River RV Park in Kerrvile, TX. Everything worked great and we are pleased with our find.


On the way to Kerrville the outside temperature was 111 degrees. This has been a true test for air conditioners here in Texas for the past month. Yes I took this picture while Dianna was driving. She really likes the way this rig drives.

Thanks for stopping by.
