Our son, Dan, and his wife Heather, along with our grandtots Allegra and Mason are the proud owners of a new RV! With months of diligent research, and checking out various things like floor plans, construction, towing weights, family-friendly features and of course a bunk house version.... they settled on a new RV!
They waited (impatiently) for the special prices at the big RV show in Green Bay last weekend to make their deal.
Here is what they chose.....
Oh, wait... no.... THIS one!
It has the master bedroom up in the front, and the tv swivels around in that cabinet to face either the livingroom or the master bedroom! How cool is that? There is one long slide that holds the couch (with jacknife sleeper) and the U-shaped booth and table.
Here is the floor plan. They chose a unit with no carpeting... smart move for a young family with two little rugrats and a big yellow lab dog! Lots of room on rainy days for playing inside.
We are sure these triple bunks are the biggest hit
as far as features go with the grandtots!
(whoever sleeps on the bottom bunk will get a face washing from Tiger, the dog!)
We are quite pleased they are going to be joining the ranks of RV ownership! All of our grown kids camp with tents from time to time, but these are the first of them to buy an RV. We already made reservations for a double family site at the big Halloween celebration at High Cliff State Park! We made the reservation weeks BEFORE the kids made the deal, because the kids knew they were going to get this trailer.
May they make wonderful memories for years and years to carry on--- for our grandtots' future of becoming RVers ... and someday sit around their campfire with their kids and their grandkids. As the RVing Torch is passed down through the generations in our family.
Steve's dad, Pa Pfundtner called me yesterday from a KOA near Pensecola FL. He is having a grand time touring around in his new motorhome. Nicky, the rascally dog is his co-pilot. Adeventures abound for him as he has been wandering around the warmer regions and escaping this Wisconsin Winter! He also gave us some GREAT NEWS of a family member who is again declared CANCER FREE after his quarterly check up.... what a wonderful thing to hear!
It's been cold here, as it is in many parts of the United States this week. We are really looking forward to escaping next month to get south and seek a little warmth. It's funny to read blogs about folks complaining about temps going down to 50 at night etc. Oh boy, we would have our windows open and breathing in that fresh air and basking in the welcoming temperatures!
On our first RV trip to Florida we were running around in t shirts and shorts, with open windows and no heat on at 55 degrees. All of the Florida Peoples were freezing, and my folks were huddled up in fleece sweats and had their heater on! Oh boy!
I got something in the mail yesterday.... from an Ebay seller who has a lot of different dog breeds available. She makes these from tiny fibers of sheep fleece and dyes them perfectly to match your breed of dog. They are one sided ornaments, the back side is all felt with her tag you can see if it rotates. I decided to hang it from the mirror in our car.
Today is going to be a busy day... I have to run to the local bakery and get some nice kaiser rolls for a luncheon at Steve's workplace at High Cliff State Park. It's a "goodbye" lunch to a beloved ranger, Rob, who is transferring to another park further north, closer to family. I baked up some pans of brownies and lemon bars to take along. Rob is the Ranger who set us up to be camphosts last August at the park. Ranger Linda made up sloppy joes and there will be some other items brought in by other attendees. Plus a few gag gifts to send him on his way....
After that is over at the park, I have to zoom home, to let the dogs out one more time, and then load up my sock machine and tools. Some fellow sock crankers are gathering up in Green Bay. One gal is having trouble with her machine and asked me to check it out for her. So will see if we get her cranking yet today.
It's snowing lightly, and just above 0 now, so I guess the car will feel nice and warm as I buzz around today on my tasks.
