As Johnny stated, we are very busy getting ready and haven’t been able to post much. I have been working on selling my vehicle, but I am not having much luck with it. I guess that I am the last person on earth who loves a manual transmission. As soon as they hear that its a stick, the conversation ends. We are still trying to empty out the house in an ethical way. Our families have picked out everything that they want. Our friends have come over and, after some rummaging, decided on some items. We have lots of ads running on Craig’s list at the moment. I still have tons more to add. I am about to start listing on freecycle as well. We just have too much stuff. I have learned that being a pack rat is a bad thing.
We have a better idea of when the camper will arrive! It is supposed to leave Oregon on the 15th. It will come via a tractor trailer. It will probably take a couple of days for them to inspect it and do all of the dealer setup stuff. We are really hoping to have it before Thanksgiving. It would be great to be able to pack it up over the long weekend. Here’s hoping!
We have also picked out a campground to stay in for a couple of months while we get acclimated to the RV lifestyle and continue to make a living in the corporate world. We decided to spend the winter and part of the spring working at our current jobs so that we can put the money that we spent getting ready for this adventure back into our savings and sock away a few pennies more.
We have marked a few more items off of our list, but we still have lots to go. Half the fun of getting there is the journey, right?
