Whew! We close in 23 days!

Choosing options for an RV is hard work! But, it's easier than building a house, because there are fewer decisions, and I have always been a little indecisive. Maybe that's explains why I am so "gypsy-like". We decided on the RV brand and model, now it's just a matter of considering every option and doing the research. We have decided on a "brand-spanking new" DRV Mobile Suites. It is warranted for full-timing and is four-season. It is 36', which is small enough that we can stick to the heavy duty trucks. And, it is looking like a Dodge Ram for our tow vehicle. I'm thinking I might need cowboy boots and hat to drive this truck around with a Texas tag!

We close in 23 days, and will live in our Winnebago View until the fiver comes in. Hopefully we will have our truck by then! I'd hate to have to camp in the parking lot of RV's For Less!

So, needless to say, I have been pretty busy with details. Going through "stuff" today and sorting: need for next 3 weeks and until 5er comes in (Winnebago space is limited); pack and store what we will need when 5er comes in (for year-round travel); pack items to take to auction; pack items to store while we are traveling; pack items to donate to Community Kitchen, family and friends. Whew!

Beautiful day here in Chattanooga. Spring is in the air!

Packing is no fun, you are going to be busy for the next 3 weeks. Did you retire again, or are you working and packing?

Working and packing....I am finding that it is hard to downsize to 400 sq. ft, so I plan to add another 100 via storage room here in Chattanooga. Some things I am just not ready to part with...like, my Mom's sewing machine, cedar chest which is my original "hope chest", and even some of my furniture. Just you wait - your time is a 'comin!

Whew...........a busy schedule ahead of you in the coming weeks........and CONGRATULATIONS! Getting a NEW 5th Wheel, that is just awesome.........as for renting an extra storage building a thought for you.......what we are looking into once we are able to get our home up for sale is to actually buy one of those 10x20 cargo trailers and store our things we just can't part with in it and leave it with one of our kids. Basically a storage unit on wheels, giving us the opportunity to get the feel to where we would want to buy land for our final residence. Just a thought. And Again Congratulations!

Great idea Cyndi. Unfortunately, we don't have family that would have a place to park anything. Thanks for posting!

Congrats on the new fifth wheel! Wow!! :) That is awesome news! I can't wait to see pictures of the new digs. You are going to be sooo busy for the next three weeks!! But what a relief when it is all done. (And yes, we are SO looking forward to our trip to Tennessee for the rally!!)
