Comin' down

It has been a whirlwind week!
As everyone knows, we bought
our new home on Saturday,
a Keystone Montana 3700RL.

Since we pick it up SOON,
on October 1,
we had to find a place to
park it, and FAST!

We did some calling around,
mobile home parks,
friends were offering their driveways.
There are no campgrounds
within commute distance.

George had a bright idea...
if we get the flooded out
mobile home off the property,
we would have room to park it there.

I quick posted an ad
on Craigslist,
for someone that wanted
all the scrap metal FREE.
George got 20 calls in 15 minutes!

A nice young man came
down and started going to town!

He said he would have it done
by the end of the week.
Good thing!
George has been looking
into getting all the hookups
needed to adapt to the RV.

This should be perfect
for us, since we own
the property anyway.

We just have to hang in there..
for 10 more months..
then we can pull outta there!


  1. See, we told you it would all work out for you. Driveway USA is a campground with the right price tag.

  2. Oh that is great having your new home right next to you! You'll be able to spend all kinds of time making it fit your tastes. Wish I could keep my RV at home.

  3. It's amazing how you have moved right on from the tragedy and things are really looking up. I can hear the smile in your voice.

  4. Glad that it is starting to work out well for you. It will be exciting getting the new rig.

  5. You really are making Lemonade out of the lemon!! You both are a great example of how to get on with life even when you meet the tough times:)

    Can't wait to see your new home!!!

  6. How exciting!! Even through the rough times you have continued on. There is nothing stopping your dream.

  7. What a smart idea. Can't wait to see pics of the new rig

  8. You will love living in your Montana. Now, do you REALLY want to wait a year? Speaking of which, any idea where you will be heading first?

  9. Great idea. No campground fees while you get use to the 5th wheel and figure out all the flood stuff. 10 months will fly by.

  10. What a great idea! Dispose of the mobile home AND park the 5th wheel. So glad things are looking up for you.

  11. Well there ya go! I see you guys are already getting into the creative thinking patterns of full-timing! Wonderful solution!

  12. Great idea! You two are so resilient! So glad to see things are progressing in a positive direction. You will love having your RV so close.

  13. What a great idea, and you can move it if it gets threatened. Are you taking it to CA for the wedding?
