***This is the last post we will put in Joey’s Journal on our rving blog, now that Joey has gone back to Australia. From now on we will post in “Daily Living In Our RV”*** Well we are FINALLY back in business and have our new (old) truck and new (old) 5th wheel…Mr. Ed the 3/4 ton pickup and Wilbur the fifth wheel Jayco camper. We actually retrieved Wilbur a few weeks ago, having to drive 150 miles one way to get him, but in this cheap rv living lifestyle you have to go where the affordable rvs live – which is NOT in the Chicago suburbs, might I add.
So we did the rv swap dance – unloaded and cleaned Joey, putting our belongings in the house. Fingers crossed he would sell, which he did. Then shopping for truck first. Got it. Then shopping for the camper. Got it. Then loading all of the possessions you own into the new rv. Then getting maintenance/repairs on new rigs and learning how they operate. Whew!
So we did all of that in under one month and our brains are piles of goo with very little usefulness left in them. Just in time we hit the highway and left the burbs (family’s driveway) after three months of looking like Cousin Eddie and his family from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. We are now back in central Illinois visiting my daughter for three weeks and then…HOME TO GLACIER NATIONAL PARK, MONTANA! Finally!!
We will be posting much more about Mr. Ed and Wilbur, plus what we are learning/liking have a 5th wheel, in the future. For now we are enjoying much needed R & R in our new home. Have toyed with the thought of having Mr. Ed speak in his own section on our rv blog, but it is hard to sound like a horse. Of course I’ve had fun with Jim, speaking to him like Mr. Ed in my best “horse voice” (that’s horse, not hoarse) – but not sure how to capture that magical sound and put it on the blog!
Here is a post from our rv cat, Spot, for entertainment purposes until we post again.
