Gas Stations of History:
Note: Yesterdays service station wa created from a B-17 Bomber. With a very wild story behind it.
For Tuesday’s stuff:
Our motor home is a 2000 model. It might have been 5 to 8 years old when we got it. I could look at the records and check but they are not close. If my sweet heart was not busy right now, she could tell me exactly.
It was not new when we bought it. It is 38 ½ feet long Monaco Diplomat. We have two slide outs (pop outs some call them); one in the living room/kitchen area and one in the Bed room. Both slide out about 2 feet. It makes the living area seem much bigger.
This coach is called a diesel pusher, since the engine is in the rear and under the bed. Our engine is a Cummins 315. Living this life has been possible because we are both retired and had some rental property that kept us on the road. If you travel 400 miles in a day riding in a car it takes a lot out of you, but in the coach I am very rested after 400 miles. Driving is like sitting in a lounge chair.
If we like we can make coffee. If you need the rest room, you have it. We loved this life, but we know it is on the downhill run now. This trip we plan to really enjoy. Son Jack Jr. has taken 6 weeks off and will go with us to help drive. We leave next Saturday; the Big count down is on.
