It is ours...We own it now. No turning back from this adventure.
I walked around the rig as if I had to be sure it was real. It is real and it is REAL BIG. Mike opened the door and we climbed in and took our first look at where we will be living soon. (Still pinching myself) After going inside I was so happy we kept the light fixture as it was and for the décor we decided on. It feels and looks so rich. Just like a home.
No TV since it will be stored outside
Love the light fixture over the island
We had the washer/dryer installed....hmmmm
There it is....Glenda is very happy
This couch is actually very comfortable
You can see I like it.
We spent a good long time in the rig just looking at everything, opening and closing doors, drawers and the slides just got a feel for it all. We noticed that we could still access the bathroom and bedroom with the slide closed in the front. Good to know for those overnights where you may not open the slides. The MCD shades are even impressive. Mike also told us that there are only 2 Bighorns in the country that have disc brakes installed. That is an upgrade that is found on the Landmark model for Heartland but they just happened to be offering it when we ordered the Bighorn and then found out that it slowed the line down so they stopped after 2 units were built - ours and someone else's. So we are glad we ordered when we did. After enjoying our new home we had to leave and let Mike get back home and we could enjoy our time at our daughters.
We found out the truck is scheduled to be built on February 10th and should be delivered a 1-2 weeks later. This waiting is beginning to get to me. We seem so close yet so far away. Glenda's last day at work in on Friday. I know that once that happens the real work begins as we get the house ready for sale in the spring. Fortunately we aren't hoarders and have downsized from our home a few years ago after the kids all moved out and on their own. Still there is a lot to do....but we are up for the task and it will help the time pass too. I'm beginning to ramble so I will just say we had a great time at our daughters house even though all the grandkids weren't there.(That's another story) We had more snow over the weekend but once we got on the road and headed west and south the temperatures improved and there wasn't as much snow so we made good time. You might have noticed I moved the countdown clock up one more month to Sept 1. We figured if we are going to go to the RV Dreams Fall Rally we could just save the vacation time and apply it to the retirement date and end this work thing a month earlier. So that's what we're doing. We keep working the plan and I know retirement is just around the corner and it won't be long. Thanks
