Heaven and Earth Part II

So, the marriage seminar was good. Some things to think about. But, in the end, the providential tugging helped satisfactorily accomplish another project Bruce and I have been endeavoring towards.

We bought a travel trailer.

It's really kind of weird how it happened. It is the perfect layout at exactly the price we wanted to spend. But for the marriage class that almost didn't happen, we would not have found it.

After the class was over, I casually mentioned to Bruce that there was a trailer for sale across the street from church that I was curious about. We checked it out. It was small, but could fit 6 sleepers, so we made an offer which was summarily turned down.

We didn't feel too bad about that, because a supposedly identical trailer was for sale on the "lemon lot" up on Elemendorf A.F.B. for half the price. So, I headed home in one car, and Bruce headed up to the base in the other car to check things out. I was grumbling that Bruce hadn't already written down the phone number for the trailer's owner during a previous visit, but in the end it was the best thing that could have happened.

He called me from Elmendorf to say that this particular model had one less sleeping bunk, so that it would only fit five. I was disappointed, but we agreed that the right thing would come at the right time and that our patience would pay off.

Five seconds later, it did.

A guy pulled into the "lemon lot" while Bruce and I were talking.

Bruce asked the guy if he was selling: "Yes."

How much? For the exact amount we had budgeted.

How many does it sleep? Up to ten!

So, we bought it. It has the exact floor plan we had most liked, but at half the price of the models we had previously seen.

We are very excited. But, its 10pm, I still have to watch a movie before going to bed. Go to go chill. Will write more later.

Heaven and earth, baby.

Well, when we actually take possession of it, we'll post pics (on or around May 3rd). Meanwhile, check out the April 25th blog posting that AT LEAST has the floorplan.
