We are not suitcase people
Returning from Florida we realized again, we are not suitcase people. We both agreed if we were wealthy we would not enjoy traveling and living in hotels and motels. It is a chore for us to pack and unpack, we have become accustomed to having everything with us. You know, our ‘stuff’, our home and you cannot pack everything. LOL
At least six times while working on the new home, I said to myself I will go out to the motor home and get:
1. A short piece of wire.
2. A pipe wrench.
3. Circuit tester.
4. Ladder (we found a 5 gal. bucket to stand on for short stuff)
5. Nut driver
6. WD-40 (bought that, lol)
7. A hammer. (I improvised using my tow bar attachment)
Looking at the motel room we stayed in, I had to smile. This is more square footage than we have in the motor home, but we much prefer being in the motor home.
We are also not ‘king size bed’ type folk. We sorta want to touch each other at times. TOO much space in between with a king size bed.
The reason for the house as I have said, is for the time when Sherry gets too old to drive the 26000 lb Motor coach (LOL). Right now we aren’t ready to concede that (big smile). But we have no illusion that the time will not come, so we do want to be prepared.
In the mean time we plan to spend some time there, but more time in the coach. The home will also be available to family for a place in Florida to unwind.
We timed our drive, we stopped several times, including once for coffee and once to eat and the drive was less than 9 hours door to door.
We saw one of these today, 1955 Chevy. One of my most favorite cars. Those are the colors also.
