WOW how time flies when your having fun!

Well, it's been 11 months since our last post, how did that happen?  Simple "LIFE" what I mean is in the last year so much has happened so many great things that the blog went to the bottom of the priority list. HOWEVER that will not happen again!  I think there is a great story to tell and share with everyone.

So here we go,

Time to go shopping!

With out going too far in the weeds on how we got to the point of buying the motorhome, it's important to hit the high points.  We literally made a very tight budget and stuck to it, we saved every penny we could and picked up as much work as possible, we stashed all of the money from the Yard Sale and were able to hit our budget by late October. 

So we have just shy of $10,000.00 and we need to buy a motorhome big enough to live comfortable with our 3 pugs.  There are a lot of different avenues you can use, what we decided was to keep our eye on Craigslist.  You would be surprised at the truly great deals you can get on a motorhome or trailer through Craigslist.  I have to say that we received some help from a good friend of ours who does a lot of Shopping and "Flipping" on Craigslist.  It was mid November when my buddy called me and said, "YOU'VE got to check this rig out" he sent me the link and listed was a 40' Fleetwood Bounder Motorhome.  The asking price was $8,500.00.  It was located about 30 miles from us so going to look at it would not be a big challenge.  We called him and  it was still available, (Quick note, if you see a good deal, DON'T Wait) so we set an appointment for in about an hour to go check it out.

More to come!  Next we will go look at the Motorhome
