Memorable Truck from The Past:
We have a site sign saying our ‘Homeport Belmont, NC.' Once in the Dakotas there was a knock on the door (Unusual occurence). A gentleman introduced himself and said his uncle had once been the Post Master at Belmont, a Mr. Bullard. I remembered Bullard and had some business dealings (Land purchases) with him, a good man. It is a small world
At a camp site in Wyoming we were talking around a campfire once and I mentioned I wanted to sail the world. A camper said “We tried that, you had better love each other because in a disagreement you are not going to take a walk or go have a drink,” he continued, “We once saw a sail boat going in a circle; the hubby at the stern and wife on the bow, no one controlling the boat, they were upset with each other.”
Usually on the road we would drive 300-400 miles; stop for a week or so and tour the area. WE preferred small towns, we loved it.
Since this lifestyle is winding down I thought I would give you a walk-through.
Looking out the picture window, (the view changes)
Sherry has the Grands' pictures around
Our table and PC’s (Sherry refuses to be in a picture, girls are funny about that!)
Our couch with an Afghan made for us by a great friend MaryAnn. When Mark is here he sleeps on the couch and says he only needs MaryAnn to keep him warm.
Couch & living room
Washer/dryer. Does about 3-4 pounds of laundry. Sherry keeps us up to date though. She operates it, I fix it. LOL
The vanity shower area is just past the washer/dryer
Bedroom. We use a ‘Sleepsack’. It is lined with removable bedsheets. I am usually last up and it is simple to make-up. LOL
Mirrored doors for Sherry's closet
This month I reach 82, it is getting a little harder to park and set up. We have talked about downsizing to maybe stretch our time away from home base, time will tell.
PS . It is hard to believe this coach is over 20 yrs old. We have had it over 15. This coach is called ‘a pusher’ due to the diesel engine being in the rear under the bed.
