It has been over 60 days since my last post and a lot has changed since then! Most notably, we are pretty much full-timing now even though we have not sold our house still. We have spent the past month with my family in Cooperstown, NY. We have decided we do not want to spend any more time than absolutely necessary in the Delaware heat this summer. We have been staying at a nice RV Park called Hartwick Highlands about 3 miles from Coops. It wouldn’t normally be a destination park for us, but it is a good fit in close proximity to the village and my family. The owners are fantastic and the facilities are very nice.
The most significant change in our plans since my last post is that we have ordered a new home. We are trading in our 36′ motorhome for a new 2012 custom-built 43′ DRV Mobile Suites fifth wheel. That’s right…forty three feet! Which also means I have to trade in my 1/2 ton Dodge Ram for a 1.5 ton F-450 diesel with duallys…or a M2 Freightliner. We opted for the F450 🙂
This is not our unit…but it is the same brand/model/floor plan we ordered:
Construction has begun on our new home today and it will take about 8 weeks to complete. More details on this later…I just wanted to post an update to keep this blog alive until I start bogging regularly on the road.
We will be heading to Bar Harbor, Maine; Warren, New Hampshire; New York to visit family again; and Hershey PA for the RV-Dreams rally over the next 2 months; then it’s on to Knoxville TN by October to pick up our new home.
To be continued . . .
