Here it is! I finally got it home. The mechanic that installed it was very thorough and meticulous. He has installed quite a few of these and stated that the final adjustments were extremely important and if not done properly, it would vibrate and/or pull to one side. After measuring and re-adjusting several times, he took it out for a spin. When he came back he said that with just a slight correction, it will be perfect. He told me I could take it for a spin if I wanted to but it was already 5:30. We had to load it and drive 70+ miles back home to Custer and all I wanted to do was get home. It was after 7pm when we arrived home and we were both worn out. I didn’t even unload it. It was threatening rain and I left it all sealed up inside the cargo trailer.
Here I am all mounted on my new ride. We had just been out for a short spin in Custer State Park. It rode smooth and tracked as straight as a string. I am happy with it and I know Ms. Pat feels much safer. But it is different! I took it slow and easy on my first trip out. I’ll ease into this thing and I believe it will be OK. You don’t lean to turn, you have to push and pull on the handle bars. It was a little hard on my shoulders but I will get used to it and maybe toughened up a bit.
Between both of us having our teeth checked and cleaned, along with getting our eyes tested and Ms. Pat having several Dr. appointments and my having some blood work done, we've been running like crazy. Then added to that, we've been checking out more flooring, kitchen cabinets, sinks, faucet's, table top stoves and microwaves and working on installation of everything. Whew, I wasn’t this busy back when I was working for a living!
At most of Ms. Pat’s Dr. appointments, they just referred her to another Dr. So next week is more Dr. appointments, I don’t know if we are gaining ground or not! At least, we finally have the floor installers scheduled to start on the floor installation next Wednesday or Thursday. We want to get that in before the cabinets are installed. It will be so good to get this floor and cabinets done. Then we can move in and make a “home” out of it. We have also been looking at all the furniture stores for mattresses, couches and chairs, etc. We really don’t want to get any furniture until all the floor is in.
I guess as they say, “it will all come out in the wash” but I am ready! Will there ever be a day we can sit back and say “we are all done”? I sure hope so! But gosh, what would we do then? LOL. Oh, I’m sure we’ll find something.
It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!
