Moving Forward

We are making progress towards the final goal. So far,everything we have put on Craigslist has sold. Albeit there have only been a few small items that we have posted. We have done so well preparing for this eventuality that we are down to just the basics. It would be a little premature to get rid of everything now. We still have two months to go.

We did sell one big item today. We are now down to one car. We sold Brenda's car today. It was starting to have a few issues that would start costing more then we were willing to spend on it.

Last week, the battery was dead yet again. We knew it was going to be the alternator and we didn't want to mess with it. Since the battery was new, we jumped the car and took it to the auto parts store we bought it from. Since it was still under warranty, we got a new battery. We figured we had a very short window of opportunity to sell it as a running car. We went to the car wash and cleaned it all up then came home and took some pictures and posted it on Craigslist. Within 5 minutes we got a hit. They came by about thirty minutes later and bought the car.

We also got more of the mechanical issues dealt with. We just have a few more projects and she will be road ready. We hope to get all that done in the next few weeks so we can get another chance to take it out and get to know her better.

So far, we have put very little money into the RV. We are truly seeing what a good deal we got. So much so, that some of the projects that we were going to wait and do in Florida will probably get done before we leave.

We are feeling good about everything. I am learning that no matter how much worrying, fretting and trying to plan, life is going to happen on its own time frame. In the end, everything works out for the best.

Two months and we are on the road......
