We Are Home

Had a fabulous dinner with Mary and Gene last night, she marinated flank steaks that were so good, we had a salad, rice for the ladies, potatoes for the men.  Mary likes to say she can’t cook but we know better, in their younger days Gene did most of the cooking but now that he isn’t in the best of health, Mary does the cooking and she does a great job!

We fired up the new motorhome this morning and headed out of Spokane about 7am.  Making frequent stops to rest and check out the motorhome, we got home about 6pm.  I made a Costco stop in Bozeman to pick up some fresh fruits and vegetables.  It is close to 500 miles to Spokane from here and that is just a little too far to drive in one day when you are driving a new to you motorhome.

But, the motorhome did just great—climbed those mountain passes every easily, Michael was passing every other motorhome and semi on the passes and he said the coach ran like a dream.  The refrigerator works—always a concern when buying an older RV and Emmi likes it—she slept on the sofa all the way home.

I went out and took a few photos but it is just a little too dark to see very much but here they are—there is too much furniture in the living area, we haven’t decided what we are taking out—chair or couch but something has to go.  The recliners are very comfortable and a nice soft leather as is the couch. 



Interior2 There is lots of counter space, the raised portion of the counter back by the mirror you see on the right is over the washer/dryer which we may remove.  The carpet is in very good shape and the kitchen and bathroom floors are dark granite (I think) tiles—beautiful.  It does have a front entry door instead of a mid-entry door—I didn’t really want a front door but everything else about the coach I like!

Sadie and Emmi A photo of Miss Emmi tormenting Sadie, Mary and Gene’s English Cocker—she seems to be saying, “come any closer kid and I am going to show you my teeth.”  Sadie tolerated Emmi very well I thought.

It is good to be home, the deer had lunch, breakfast and supper off my flowers and shrubs in the front yard but other than that, everything seems to be fine on the home front.

  4. Great looking Motorhome, I see some kind of dome on top, did it come set up for Sat TV? With Mike's mechanical knowledge it should do just fine for you guys and he can make any improvements you want. Good Luck and a long happy future with it. be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

  5. Sounds like the deer enjoyed your little trip as well. Enjoy your new winter home. :)
