We Moved Into A New Home!

 

Our gate closed and we were released on Jan 19th.  We went to the company RV park for a few days, but there were 10 other couples  waiting for a gate.  With things slowing down in the oilfield, due to the falling price of oil, we decided to head east.

Mom & Dad have been wanting to downsize into a Class C Motorhome since our trip to AZ & Utah last summer.  Most Fulltime Rvers we know, think they’re crazy for downsizing, but Mom wants a more comfortable way to travel.  She calls the 5th “The Beast” 

The 5th wheel is great for when we’re sitting in one place, gate guarding for an extended period, but it’s a lot more work to set up and break down when traveling.  Also, it doesn’t have an onboard generator and we like to boondock overnights at Wal-Mart’s or casinos, like we used to do in our first Motorhome.  Anyway, there was a Class C they liked in Florida, so we went to look at it….and they bought it!  It’s a 2010 Jayco Greyhawk

Phoebe finally decided to try hers out.

Then I tested Lucy’s… it was a little small, but I made it work.

Lucy isn’t really interested in hers yet, but she never really slept on the couch.  Lucy likes to be held or lay on the recliner footrest, if someone’s sitting in it.  Right now she’s standing in Dad’s lap browsing Facebook or something.

  1. Our Mom keeps downsizing also. I don’t think Dad is too impressed with it though. I think as long as she lets him have two boats there isn’t much he can say. I like your new home. Tell your folks to get you steps up to the bed like we have. Works really good. Have fun at Grandma and Grandpas.

    We are so excited that you will be here tomorrow. Lucy and Cleo will get to meet everyone for the first time and there will be lots of play and treats. Hope you like your new motor home and have safe travels with your Mom and Dad.
    See you soon!
    Gracie and Cleo
