From the Frying Pan to the Ice Box!!

Here we are HOME!!! Hallelujah !!! This is our NEW HOME sitting right where the old one sat.  We made it home Sunday after a nice 410 mile trip and the timing was "perfect". We backed into our spot and I hit the air level button. The Foretravel gently leveled itself and Ms Pat put the slides out.  I looked at my watch...3:30pm.  Happy Hour in 30 minutes....PERFECT! Whew!  It was a long trip but it was worth it.
We were lucky to be welcomed home by our good friends Mark and Dale Bruss. They have been traveling the western US all winter and we were expecting them. Fortunately for us, they arrived a few days before we did and we asked them to watch over the place. It's neat to be welcomed home by good friends and someone to enjoy Happy Hour with.  Plus, Dale had a great supper all planned and prepared.  God is so good to us.  Thanks so much Dale and Mark.

My title "From the Frying Pan to the Ice Box" about describes our situation. The "Frying Pan" was where we were in Texas for the last 2 weeks with the temperatures above the 100's and the humidity about the same. Then when we arrived back here in Custer and it was like the "Ice Box". Monday the temperature only got up to 53 deg and Tuesday morning the low was 32 deg.  What a change!   Suddenly it's FALL!!!  Summer 2010 is OVER, seems like it happened overnight.

It's unbelievable that we only have about 3 weeks left before we head back south. Where did the summer go? We still have so much to do. However, it will just have to wait.  It will be here when we get back.  We did accomplish an awful lot. By the time we get this rig all loaded up and ready for the winter, it will be time to head south.

We have so much to learn about our new Foretravel home. We found out on the Foretravel Forum that a few of the members are having a Rally in Colorado Springs on Oct 4th. That would be a wonderful opportunity for us to look and learn and ask questions. We hope we can get things together soon enough to make it.  It will push us but we're getting used to being pushed,  so we'll give it a go.

It is a GREAT WEEK!!!

Thanks for stopping by.........Hope to see you Sunday.

Good to see you had a safe trip home, now it will not be long and you will be headed south again. I hate to see the summer go, but we had an extremely hot one here in MO. I also hate the thought of an early winter as I will be heading north in October instead of south, to help my younger sister after her surgery. It not uncommon for kids to go halloweening in the snow in the area of PA. where I'll be. (Pocono Mountains).Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

That new rig looks pretty good sitting in your old spot. I'll say you got a lot accomplished this summer - sold the old rig, built a new apartment and bought a beautiful motorhome!

That rally sounds like a great idea if you can make it. A few discussions and tips can sure save a lot of problems and questions down the road a bit.

Glad to see things are going well for you all. The motorhome looks very nice and comfy.... I can see Miss Mega Kitty thinks so too! Safe journey.

You are home, hurrah! We can hardly wait to get home to Benson; one more week of this motel stuff. Then we'll be leaving in about 2 1/2 weeks for a rally of our own. Are we running somewhat parallel paths?

I'm so glad you made it back safely. Like Rick said, you two have had a summer of accomplishments.

Now you get to go relax and catch up on laundry in your new apartment.

Life is good. :)

Your new home looks great in its new location. I'm sure you two are excited to be on the road, and hope you can make it to that Foretravel rally. There's nothing like learning about your rig from other owners.
