Our “Changing” lifestyle…

Most of you have heard by now that Our Teton and Volvo Truck are SOLD. The couple that came and looked at it for the second time last Sunday decided for sure to take it and left us a sizable deposit.
I know I should be jumping with joy and I am relieved and happy it sold so fast, but It was by far the most comfortable full timing rig we have ever had. It was Special to us and was our Dream Home. We designed and had it built to our complete specifications. It will be sad seeing it go. The new owners will pick it up on Aug 20TH.
Meanwhile we are scurrying around and trying to get our things moved out so it will be ready to go. That is 9 days away and sounds simple enough. However our Granddaughter Shala McFall is getting married this weekend in Lincoln, Nebraska… We couldn’t miss that for anything in the world! Rollie and Gina, Ms Pat and I were all going to the wedding which is 550 miles away, about a days drive. However, another delimina is the fact that we have NO HOME. No place to live!! 
So,,,Bless their hearts, Rollie and Gina have decided they must stay here and get the “Cabin” ready for us to move in so we at least have a bathroom and place to sleep. I know they were looking forward to going to the Wedding and we were excited to have them. They are putting in long hard days working on the place and we are so grateful for their loving dedication. It means so much to us, we never could have done it without them.  Ms Pat and I will leave very early this Friday morning and drive to Lincoln and hopefully get there in plenty of time to attend the 7pm rehearsal. Saturday at 5:30pm will be the wedding, then the next morning we will leave early and drive back to Custer. Whew, talk about a whirlwind trip,,,wow! 

With all this going on, I am trying to find us an RV. Everything I see is always a long distance from us and considerable more traveling is going to be necessary to find the one we want….. We are looking for a Motorhome. One that is a few years old, but in good shape. Probably some thing that is in the 40' range. We are mostly interested in a Travel Supreme or a Tiffin product. I have several spotted and it seems they all are in Texas. If anyone is in the Fort Worth or the Houston area and could look at a couple for me, it would sure help out. Mainly just to let me know if its worth traveling there to see them…..

Probably shortly after our Teton is picked up on the 20TH, Pat and I will get in the car and head out to find just that "RIGHT" Motorhome . About the same time Rollie and Gina want to go up into Montana and visit with some friends and see some of that beautiful country…  So stay with us and we will keep you posted on every ones progress..
Rollie and Gina’s Blog will keep you up to date with the progress on the Cabin…..Rollie and Gina's Blog..

We can't help you out in the Texas area, but if you find anything in the Tampa area (Lazy Days) in the next few days, we can help you. After that, we can check out rigs in the Tallahassee or south Georgia area. I know that's a long way from where you are, but if you find anything, let us know.

Maybe in a few years you can take over our 36' Itasca Suncruiser with it's one slide and an already built computer desk. But for now, we still have a use for it! Travel safe to Nebraska and back!

Congratulations on the sell of your Teton and truck. I am sure the new owners will be so proud and take good care of it. I also know it is with mixed emotions.

We are in Georgia (near Atlanta) so if you need us in this area or even Alabama just let us know. We will do anything we can to help.
Hope you find the perfect rig!!

You guys drive carefully as you make your way to and from the wedding. Have fun!!
