I know that things have been up in the air for Deb and I but We are in the process of loading up the truck and heading back to Arizona. We were going to leave Friday but they say snow is coming up the coast{Noreaster} So giving a couple of days to clear the roads we now plan to head out Monday.
Our computer has alot of information you and other sites have given to us so I can tackle the MH when we get back. We haved lived in a tent for 3-4 day weekends before so this won't be to bad. I figure a couple to three weeks and we will be able to move back in the mh. Then I can use the tent as a portable workshop. Cabinets and counter tops are easy if you have the right tools. I have two friends, a couple of cousins and Deb to help me. The Home Depot is about 5 miles from me and there is a Local hardware a couple of blocks from us too! I did some work back about 6 years ago or so and was getting things ready for the home to be finished when all the fun started last year. I talked to my cousin the other day and it is dry under the cabinets and bed so I can start by getting that ugly carpet that was originally in the MH out. The main floor has tile down and is in good shape, so my cousin says. I have to check all the cabinets for any water damaged parts. I used Polyurethane on all the cabinets so they may be ok too. I'll get some pictures when I get down to where we see any damage. This should be fun and any rate and we will know that things are right. I will post later when we get closer to home and will let you know that we are safe. Dan

Sounds like a nice direct route to Arizona! Almost as bad as the time my kids were planning a trip to Texas and plotted their trip using a Cracker Barrel map...

Hope you don't hit much snow on the way out. Travel Safe.
