Motorhome Firsts

In keeping with our new adventure of RV ownership “firsts”, we are about to weather our first major storm. 


As you know, we’ve already experienced the death of an air conditioner during record breaking high temps in TX, LA, MS, AL, and now FL. Of course, you shared in our misery while we waited on the side of i10 for a new alternator belt.

So, at this point, we should be wondering if this was a good idea. Right?


Nope! We love it!


The doggies love it, too!

But, the “firsts” that are scary and cost big money can STOP!!!

I guess we should come out of hiding!

Did you think we had gone missing? Been abducted by aliens, even? Well, it feels like it!

As you know, we don’t live in the typical way that most people live. But, the funny thing is that REAL life happens no matter where or how you choose to live.

The honest truth is that we’ve had some challenging personal issues to deal with and while grieving “what might have been” it’s hard to even focus on how we’re living. For almost a month, we have just been happy to get out of bed and put one foot in front of the next.

But, as they say, life goes on…

So, instead of writing a novel about what has transpired in our We Sold Our House world, I will just give you some bullet point updates:

Look at this sweet girl! We got to spend some time with her and our kids this month. She makes everything better!! Three cheers for grandchildren!!!

We last updated in May when we arrived at our charming little cottage in Ocean Sprins, MS. We LOVED it! So cute!

While in MS, we decided that we would like to add a Motorhome to our travel options. No, not to be full-time RV’ers but to give us more options when finding vacation homes is a challenge. So, we bought this beast!We already had houses rented through August so, this purchase has created some logistical challenges. But, we’ve worked through most of those.

Since we bought a Motorhome, we decided it would be easiest to trade in our trailer and Infinity on a Jeep to pull. So, we bought this Jeep.

But, it’s used and needed some work before we could take possession. So, we left it in Ocean Springs where we will be picking it up in a few days.

Yep, we have had no vehicle (other than the Motorhome) for awhile. We’ve been renting and borrowing. So, that’s getting REAL old! Time to get the Jeep…

Which is where we were headed RIGHT NOW, in the Motorhome, until our alternator belt shredded on I10 East. SERIOUSLY!!!

Did I mention that only one air conditioner is working and our generator needs oil but we can’t fill it because we would be immediately flattened by a semi? SERIOUSLY!!

Here’s the good:

A roadside tech is on the way to replace the belt that is covered by warranty.

The tech is covered by our roadside service protection.

We are parked under a bridge in the shade.

It’s raining so, it’s not too hot.

All issues needing repair will be fixed next month (under warranty) while we’re back in our favorite vacation home at The Villages in Florida.

See, it’s all good! I hope…

Prayers, please?!
