WHEW!!! What a whirlwind the past few days have been. Thursday we drove from Rolla, MO to Columbus OH and we got to see our new HOME at Haydocy RV!!!! YEAH!
Then on Friday we bought our new home and some other various equipment needs (stinky slinky and leveling pads and such).
AND THEN... we drove the RV (now known as Smiley 'cuz every time we look at her we smile) to the Alton RV Park which was only 5 miles from the dealership. Denise did a great job driving.
We sent up camp for the first time and had a blast unloading more boxes from the back of the truck. Looking for the most important item of ALL - the coffee pot! Once we found that the night was over.
We had wonderful conversations with people from Texas, Canada, Florida and another unknown state. All of them have been full time RV'ing from 2 1/2 years to 27 years (really since 1987).
Saturday was a fantastic day as we pulled up stakes from Alton and headed north to Toledo. We ended up 'mooch-docking' at the Meijer store in Maumee. And then mom, Jeff and Mary came to our house. Mary said it was hard to miss a 27' Airstream. We had a great visit with them for a couple of hours.
Then after that visit we headed to dinner with friends at a local restaurant. It was so good catching up with Susan and Ron Ammon and Pam and Miles Billmaier. We had a great time with them and hope to see them again when we are back in town.
