Its OFFICIAL,,,,,,,,,(almost)

I love the good ole' USA!
This is one of my favorite pictures of Ms Megabyte2........She was born in Texas and Loves the USA!!
Below she says " When do we eat?"
She has added so much to our lives, I can't imagine what we would have done without her.   She enjoys it out here in the Black Hills of South Dakota, too. But I sometimes wonder if she isn't thinking about our "New House" back at North Ranch in Arizona. I know we think about it a lot.  She loves the big screened-in porch and we do, too.
This is how we left the living room. The 1.5 inch thick insulated shades are all down and the furniture is covered with sheets. We have the Air Conditioner set at 89* and the automatic watering system comes on every 5TH day at 4:00AM.  We can't help but miss it a little bit.  We enjoyed it so much for the couple months we lived in it before we headed up here to the Black Hills.  But it is most comforting to know that our good friends and neighbors, Paul and Nancy Wilson, are keeping an eye on it for us. We know they will alert us immediately if anything goes awry. They stay at North Ranch year around nowadays and they love it.
We moved our porch furniture into the utility room.  The place is insulated real well and it has a large attic fan that is thermostaticly controlled. It will be interesting to see if the A/C has to run very much. I notice that it has already gotten pretty warm down there....  100+

Well, it is now OFFICIAL.   Our beautiful place in Texas is FOR SALE............. as is our TETON 5TH wheel and VOLVO TRUCK.  We haven't exactly gone "public" with it yet, but as bad as we hate to, it will be done soon. It is hard  for us to do.  This is our "Dream Rig" and is the most comfortable full-timing rig we've had.  Here are the links if anyone wants to get an early preview:

3903 Lark Drive,  Retama Village

3903 Lark Drive, Sales Brochure

2005 Teton and 2001 Volvo

We scanned a list of the options and upgrades for the Teton and put them in the Web Album Folder.  If you know anyone who might be interested or if you need more info, give us a call.

We know you have not been as happy at Retama Village as you have been elsewhere, but Pat loved the place. Is she OK with the decision?

I suspect you aren't entirely hanging up the keys, but will get a smaller set of keys, yes?

Good to see Mikel's picture on your sidebar.

I'd hate to be selling that beautiful truck and 5'er too, Mike, but sometimes we just 'gotta do what we gotta do'. I'm sure you'll have lots of offers soon on all the properties you are selling. Good luck and it's great that you still have your new place in North Ranch to look forward to.

Will you be selling your place in the Black Hills

Mike McFall said...

No,,,not selling the place here in the Black Hills. Will probably die with it,LOL.....We have 5 or 6 people that have told us they would like to buy it, for several years now.. Not going to sell our old Lot in North Ranch either, will keep both places in AZ and this one in the Hills. Just the Texas property is for sale....
Sorry I didn't make that clear....

I have always found vehicles are like old friends. A feller kind of bonds with his stuff & there is always a slight tug at the heart & a silent goodbye when you watch it disappear down the road for the last time. with it goes many pleasant memories of fun days gone by. But alas, it's time to move on & look for that next best buddy down the road & get on with mixing up some great new memories.......10-4:))

I know you have been talking about it for a while, but it seems the time has come. Good luck on getting everything sold.

Both your properties and your equipment is always kept in such nice looking condition, it really shows the pride you have. It would be real nice to see some close-up photos of your truck as well, what model & year is it, etc. Having a nice co-home base in SD & AZ means you could even get by with a well equipped Class B coach that would allow you to boondock while visiting friends as well. You have lots of really neat options.
