We have decided that a fifth wheel & truck combination would make more sense for our full-timing needs than any motorhome we could afford :) So...
...today being a nice, sunny, beautiful day, we decided to take a ride. We dropped my Honda off to get 4 new sneakers, so it would be prepared for that ugly white stuff that seems to be the norm around here from December through March.
Then, since there are a few auto and truck dealers in the area, we decided to start looking at the right kind of truck for us to use to tow our home. Since we are not in a big RV area, it was hard to find any big trucks in inventory. We first started at the Ford dealership..nope. Then the local Chevy dealership..they just sold the one Chevy 3500HD dually truck that they had in inventory. Strike 2!
To find a dealer with a big truck inventory, we had to take a ride north to Tunkhannock. It's a beautiful ride that parallels the Susquehanna river, so we really didn't mind. The fall colors are just starting to come out, and they are looking nice.
Anyway..we went to Sherwood Chevrolet and they had one GMC SLT 3500HD, but it was sold, but that's ok. At least we saw one! They are very nice! The salesman priced a Chevy Silverado 3500HD for us....oh boy we were tempted to do it now. The payment would be as much as I pay on my mortgage :)
I think we'll wait a bit :) He's going to keep an eye out for a 'used' one (oh yeah, they don't use that term anymore...it's 'pre-owned') Geez..
Since we couldn't take a picture of the one we wanted, here it is from Chevy's website:
Just picture this Montana behind it...
The two years is going by fast...only 22 months now :)
After drooling over the truck, we needed some lunch. Tunkhannock is a great little town, and they were having a festival called 'Airing of the Quilts'. All along the main street of the town, there are quilts hanging over fences, porch railings, laundry lines, wherever they can. It's amazing!
We stopped and ate at a cute little place called Twigs, and had a terrific meal - a Monte Cristo for me, and Rigatoni for George. No ice cream today!! :)
We came home and got the house ready for the colder weather. Took the screens out of the windows, and put the storm windows in. Brought some firewood into the house, put the hoses from outside away, and cleaned up the dead flowers from their pots on the porch. I dread winter coming :(
