What An Experience!
TnT09 posted a topic in RV Photo GalleryAfter retiring from professional executive and medical careers, DH decided to fulfill HIS childhood “bucket list goal” and earn HIS CDL, then drive a “BIG RIG” semi tractor/trailer cross-country, for fun... HUH? Talked me into joining HIS “bucket goal”, tagging along AS A TEAM DRIVER... YIKES, FOR REAL???? 2 CDLs and 2 years “on the road”, later, I DECIDED WE had fulfilled HIS bucket list goal!! After all, staying in a hotel WITHOUT ROOM SERVICE was my idea of “roughing it”!!! After years of extensive national career travel, I had become “high maintenance” when it came to weekly “all expense paid” work related air and hotel travel. With the BIG RIG GIG over, NEXT STOP: as “SNOWBIRDS”, we would sell mid-west lake home, purchase older MH, gut & go “over the road” in our own “MH rig”, across North USA & Canada during hot FL summers. Plan: intermittently pull car, boat, motorcycles... CRAZY, maybe? FUN??? .... GOTTA BE a BLAST! Summer 2017: Sell lake home by owner, drive across USA looking for MH to purchase (which we knew NOTHING about), purchase, hire interior designer (design is wayyyyy out of OUR wheelhouse), learn who does quality MH work and let the good times roll (from shop to shop to gut and rebuild). 4 1/2 months in a hotel, 20 shops specializing in each detail, 2 FULL pages of upgraded items later, and NOT A SINGLE OVERNIGHT in the MH, and it was time to “put ‘er to bed” for Winter, 2017/2018. YEP, what a frustrating, fun, exciting learning experience...LOL. 2 final weeks of decorating & renovations this month (May 2018), and we will “test ‘er from head to toe”, then embark upon the latest “bucket list” journey. Hope to see some of you “on the road again...”, this time in our own MH RIG! Goodness, do we feel blessed... Questions, Comments?? reply to: firstname.lastname@example.org
