Bouncing around in NC
We've gotten everything ready at the house for the closing on Friday so now we're getting last minute visits with family. We really hope everything goes smoothly so that we can go to Florida and pick up our new MH. While there are several of you out there who know about our new rig, there are other folks who have gotten curious about my subtle hints so let me announce it here.
While we were at Huntington Beach SP, we e-mailed Lazydays about one of their 2011 Winnebago MH's. A salesman called back and we came to an agreement. With our credit card, we made a deposit to hold it until we can get there in a few days. It was a nice Christmas present to ourselves. Here's the link. Not all of those pictures are quite right but you can get the general idea. Of course, we did not pay full price. We were afraid that it would be gone by the time the Tampa RV Show came around, so we made a reasonable offer. Being the end of the year model, I think we got a fair deal. We plan to pick it up on January 12. Needless to say, we're getting excited!
It's a 2011 Winnebago Journey 40U. It's not our "dream machine" (42 QD), but now we'll have a little cash left over to pay for diesel. Her name is TAWANDA! If you have seen the movie Fried Green Tomatoes, then you may recognize it. There is a review of the movie on Google and a few sentences refer to the scene when TAWANDA! is first shouted out. Here it goes..."I believe that the moral of the story lies, however in TAWANDA & THE BEE CHARMER. From the first time you hear one of the women use the word TAWANDA, it seems to be a cry of liberation. It seems to be equated with being self-sufficient, having worth without defining it by virtue of a man, what you do, how you act, but who you are and how you feel about yourself. TAWANDA! I mean, shouting the word itself almost feels liberating." That kinda wraps it up in a nutshell.
Life is what you make of it...live with no regrets.
