Those who have followed my thread about my 79 Pace Arrow and looked at the photos see what I'm up against. I drove it home yesterday finally after a couple months of trading out cash and services and both parties are happy. After I got it home and DW and I took stock of what was needed to get it where we will be comfortable full timing in it I walked back in the house and promptly got on this forum to announce "Its Home" DW and I talked a bit and since it had sit since 1997 yet ran so good without tuning, cleaning carb, bleeding brakes etc we both marveled at the good fortune. Then it dawned on us both. This sweet little West Texas gal who we bought it from had just over a few months said a final farewell to her husband of many years. For reasons still unknown to me I felt the need to call her and let her know the trip home went great. She had been patient with us in both the work done to her home and paying when we had the money. We'd heard stories from her about her husband and how despite his illness had planned to get better and they would go see more of the country. So he did little things to the motor home at times when he felt up to it. Well long story short, When I called her even without thinking it through I told her I felt like someone was sitting there next to me. DW was following in the truck behind me. I told this sweet little gal that I knew it would make it all the way home and it drove perfectly. She said he was still taking care of it. She then thanked me for the phone call. Now I know I'll always have a Co-Driver with me. Sometimes when you least expect it a bit of good fortune comes your way. Mine did yesterday and I just wanted to share.

Thanks for sharing RB, the wife will always wonder how far her husband and where he will be traveling now in the PA and will know he's in good hands.
Safe travels RB.
