Well, we did it. With Joan's retirement coming in June we went out and put a down payment on a travel trailer. It is a 2008 Laredo. It is about 30-feet long and includes many of the bells and whistles.
First trip is scheduled for April and the destination is Kentucky and Arkansas. Just a short test run to learn the ropes. Longer trips are planned for next year.
At least we are doing our part to stimulate the economy. And, by the way, the banks and credit unions were eager to lend us money.
I've attached a photo of the trailer in the RV center's garage where it is undergoing some conversions before we take possession of it. We are looking forward to having granddaughters, family and friends join us on our new adventures.
We're planning on a new blog to keep track of our travels, so stay tuned.
