Out With the Old Part II

Bruce asked me to write this posting. He wants me to let everyone know that we sold our Ford Explorer today. He worked hard on marketing it, and is very pleased to have it gone. It will give him a great deal of pleasure to call our insurance agent tomorrow and ask her to remove it from our policy.

The guy who bought it was fourth in line to see it this afternoon, behind three other motivated buyers. It must have been meant to be with this guy, though, because he really wanted it, could pay cash, and, amazingly, the deals with the three people before him fell through.

So, car-selling is done. Now all that remains is to pay off the exceptionally nice man we bought the trailer from (which we will do when the deposit from the Subaru sale clears), and take possession of it.

Meanwhile, I am mulling over stocking the trailer with towels, Comet, and canned chicken, and Bruce is thinking about... guy-stuff. And we are plotting out our trip schedule for this summer.

My mom, who is traveling in Greece at the moment, will be (I hope, happily) surprised to hear we will be spending three days camping with us in Seward over Memorial Day weekend.

Since the kids (Ellie and Evan in particular) are so young, we won't try any big trips this summer. A couple nights here, a couple nights there. Get used to things, figure out what the heck we're doing, and maybe in a year we'll get more adventurous. So, I will finally get to Homer, and perhaps do some fishing on the Russian River.

Well, enough of that. I hope I've satisfied Bruce's ego adequately.

Yeah, we know what the trailer REALLY is...more guest bedrooms to entice recalcitrant relatives ;-)

Congratulations, happy travels, and remember to tie on a spring line when docking.

Don't tell me the thing has a shower? The whole package looks like fun in any case.

It does have a shower-ette. But no jacuzzi tub.

Wow! Thanks for including the layout, I love to look at layouts of everything from houses to boats to (obviously)travel trailers. What a great design for you guys. Room for the family right off the bat, then some extra space for your mom or whoever. How fun!
