Our plan to sell the motorhome was followed by the idea that we'd take 1/2 of the proceeds and get a house and move into it. The other thought was to take the other 1/2 and get a smaller RV. Maybe a Class C.
That plan has evolved. We got a new (to us) RV two days ago. As Pam said as we were driving away, "Our new RV looks a lot like a truck". We decided to get an F-150 and then move towards a travel trailer at some point. Timing is important for us and that will be something we'll figure out down the road.
Realistically, we probably won't be ready to do some RVing for a few months. But when the time is right, we may check into renting a travel trailer and seeing how it goes. Meanwhile,
We are busy!
This time in the transition has been pretty exciting. We are moving along on the renovations on our house and getting some great exercise along the way.
Monday I rented a sod cutter from Home Depot and wrangled with it for 3 hours in the back yard to cut up an area for Pam's garden.
I took the sod cutter back and still had time to rent an 18-hp tiller. Despite this all being "young man's work", I enjoy it. It gives me badly needed exercise and I look forward to it. Speaking of exercise, I know we need a lawn mower and while at Home Depot we picked up a battery operated Ryobi.
This gem has potential. It is powerful like gas mower and very light. It is all plastic except for the blade and battery. Pam tried it out while I was tilling.
Another day, we went to a specialty lumber yard in Norfolk (Yukon Lumber) for some highlight/accent woodwork in the house.
