Colorado girl new to rvs & going solo!

Hi everyone! I am brand new to rving and learning lessons the hard way! A little over a year ago my sweet Momma lost her battle with brain cancer. I was blessed to be able to be with her and care for her in her home until the end. Nothing else mattered at that time, so when it was over I had 2 weeks to be out of my home. 2 months later my 20yo daughter was hit by a drunk driver. My moms car saved her life, thank God. Her injuries made travel for weekly visits necessary. I was unable to save money. A year later I was still homeless, working constantly, trying to shelter one child and heal an other, missing my mom so bad, it was taking its toll on me. Then I lost my job. I sent my 12 year old son to a kind relative so he could have some normalcy while I figured things out. He has been gone for a month now.
I was feeling pretty hopeless when I recieved a call from a lady who used to help take care of me. She told me she had a gift and I needed to go see her.
Her gift was a 1972 Dodge Cobra minnie winnie. Original everything. 44,000 miles and 2 owners. Red and black leather and some shag interior. It is absolutely beautiful. It has to be a collectors item as nice as it is. I have my own space again! I'm getting my son when school is out. I feel renewed! I feel hopeful! I am ready to help my family recover from our losses! I also am hoping to learn to change a fuel pump to get the "mobile " back into our home! Lol LIFE IS GOOD !

Good luck with your situations, the fuel pump should not be that big of a challenge to change.

Welcome Jen..

At the moment I'm no loner on the road (This should change in 2-3 years) but for now I'm stuck in S.E. GA.. If you ever get down this way.. Look me up and I will suggest a camp ground and perhaps buy you dinner at the whatever are they calling it this week restaurant (3 owners since I got hear last year).
Home is where I park it!
