Good Bye Nacogdoches..
Monday morning we were up before the crack of dawn to head on South towards our place at Retama, in Mission, TX. But first we wanted to do some things at the Foretravel factory.
Above Ms Pat is at the “Remod” shop getting some questions answered. She wants to find out about replacing the carpet in our Motorhome with Ceramic Tile. It is all tile already except for in front of the Sofa in the living room. Many of folks are having the Carpet replaced with Tile. We love that....Carpet is OUT....the full tile is great.
Foretravel happened to have one on their lot that they had recently completed and were happy to show it to us. The above picture is how it would look. We were having trouble imagining how we could make the transition between our present tile to the new tile. This is NEAT and we love the way it looks. I’m sure that one day, this will be a “Remod” we'll be looking seriously at. But not now! Foretravel (FOT) is extremely busy and fully booked until way after the first of the year and so is Motorhomes of Texas (MOT). Besides, I told Ms Pat...we’re done!! We’re outta here!! I’m tired of getting stuff done!! Let's RELAX!!!
Those of you that know Ms Pat know that there is no “relaxing” with her. She is always up to something. While we were walking around the Factory, we walked around this Beauty that is a used 2010 they have for sale. It’s a “Phenix”....Foretravel's top of the line. It only has 9,000 miles on it and they have it marked down...to a mere FLAT, COOL, $1,000,000...yes, that's ONE MILLION! WOW!! I was almost afraid to touch it.
This is a brand new one they had. I didn’t get the particulars on it as it wasn’t for sale and appears to be a special order….maybe waiting for a special paint job. See that raised area on the top all the way down the side? That is a Girard awning that extends out for the entire length of the coach. Both sides have one! So did the one in the previous picture….. TOO MUCH!! If you had one of these you would need a driver and mechanic to travel with you. Maybe it's for Carrie Underwood!!!
Anyhow, back to reality. We departed Nacogdoches about 9 am, finally headed south. We had a super, enjoyable trip taking state highways over to federal hwy 77, then went straight south. The weather was perfect....396 miles later at 5 pm we pulled into a little town called “ALICE” and called it a day. The next morning we only had 130 miles to go to our place in Mission.
About 11am we pulled into Retama and it wasn’t long until we were all settled in on our lot. Ah...now for some RELAXING!!! Oh,oh, Ms Pat says we need to clean out the Coach House!!! Here we go….
Yesterday was my Dear beloved Wife’s BIRTHDAY. The calls from kids and emails along with Facebook messages were rollin in. Tune in Sunday and I’ll tell you more about the “SPECIAL” Happy Hour Dale Bruss had for her and the gift she was presented…. It’s NEAT!!
It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!
Thanks for stopping by…God Bless you all.
