Its in the Driveway!!!! YIPPEE!!!

Good Morning All,

Our 2005 Revolution is in the driveway and in our possession finally! The seller delivered it late yesterday afternoon and we spent a couple of hours going over simple operations and all the "quirks" that he found while he owned it. I was all set to start load all of our gear into it and hubby had chest pains... Rushed him to ER and after a night of tests, thankfully he was released in the wee hours this morning with a diagnosis of muscle strain. Maybe he was bursting with pride and happiness as I was...

Could only sleep a couple of hours as I was too excited to sleep because I want to go out and play with the new "baby". So after a cup of tea and toast, I am going to spend the entire day arranging all the necessary stuff in our new rolling home.

Thank you all for sharing my excitement...


Faith and Bob, Bitsy the Papillon and Bosco the Chi-weenie....RIP Truffles

Congrats great looking RV. Tell DH the strains have just begun, but at least you can travel to fields of dreams for great therapy. Happy RV'ing.

No pictures, never happened.

But if it had happened, it sure would have been cool!
