It's a sweet bacon... and I like it for german beans...but don't care for it plain.

Annie didn't like it much. I hadn't thought of it for beans but bet you're right. I had some Cherrywood smoked the other day. Now that was better. As for maple... that's long been my favorite next to my eggs or waffles.

Hi Elizabeth and Mary,

Glad to know you made the right decision for you. Sometimes it's easy because it's so obvious. Other times, it's just difficult to decide! Sounds like you came to your conclusion fairly easily.

As far as decisions, we took a round-about route to our DP. We looked at 5th wheels for a few months, then decided to go with a Class C and looked at those for a few months. Finally, some of these sick, twisted, RVM yayhoos talked me into looking at Class A diesel pushers. So, we looked and drove and looked some more. Herb & Barb and Wayne & Earlene looked at several DPs for us, too. Wayne and Earlene checked out the one we ended up buying. We've had some cosmetic work done on the interior and plan to have a bit more done. We still have to replace the radiator and one tire. After that, we should be good for a while.

Our investment was not that much, so we will be able to upgrade in a few years if we want to.

But, like you, we are happy with what we have. Kate would probably be happy with Bow till we die. I'm the one who will be wanting to upgrade every few years! She has to hold me back; otherwise, I'd be trading coaches every other year.

Looking forward to meeting the two of you one of these days.

Mel (& Kate)

On the other spectrum, I studied up for about 1 year, and bought the second one I looked at on a whim. I was out west on vacation looking at RVs recreationally. Go figure....
