New Home Base

I've told everyone about buying my lot at Deer Run RV Resort in Crossville  TN.  Love it here and this time of year is just the best.  Our colors on the Plateau are beautiful and from what I hear better than the Smoky Mountains.  But you all just keep going up there and increasing that traffic from the interstate to Pigeon Forge and leave us in peace!  LOL

But I digress.  I have purchased a park model for my lot and it is going to be delivered tomorrow, Thurs.  It is a Gulf Stream Conquest Lodge Series 398DL3.  I don't have pictures yet but as soon as she gets home, I'll post many pictures both inside and out.  I'm really excited and I love this place so much that I'll be glad to call it my home base.

As if that's weren't enough changes for me, I also downsized Somewhere to The Whim!  I saw and fell in love with the 21' Coachman Freedlander 2100CB.  We worked such a deal that I'll be traveling in a much, much smaller rolling home.  It has one slide and is on a Sprinter chassis and a Mercedes Diesel engine.  It will be interesting to see how Sedona and I adjust to such a small home for a few months at a time.  Again, pictures of The Whim when I get her home.  My BFF, Debbie, suggested the name.  She said you bought it on a whim and you can travel on a whim so it just seemed to be the name for her.

Now the fun has begun.  Since Sunday I have been taking everything out of Somewhere and putting it in my building.  For the next few days/weeks I'll be setting my new home up and trying to decide what to leave and what to take.  I am exhausted tonight and I'm not finished and the weather is not cooperating either.  The temps are plummeting.  Tonight is going to 39 and 35 tomorrow night.  Highs in the 50's which wouldn't be bad if the rain and wind stop.

Well that's a quick update on what's going on with me.  In addition to all of the above, we are getting ready for our Halloween party in the park Saturday night.  From what I hear it's a big deal, the campground is full and all the cabins and trailers are rented for this night.  Sure hope I have purchased enough candy.  No costume for me this year, just a little too much going on for me.  Look out next year.

Later...

I am so very excited for you!! Look forward to seeing pix of your new home base, and then really seeing it one of these days. Rest tonight because it sounds like a full day (again) for you!! And I'm not surprised there will be a party Saturday night! After all, you always are where the parties are....or you make them happen in some cases!!

Love the name - The Whim. Sure reminds me of you! Can't wait to see photos. You sure moved fast once you decided what you wanted. I think you will love The Whim.

We've been in Crossville for a week now and getting ready to move on Wed, we stop here every year.
Don't know how familiar you are with the area so here are a few links of stuff we've found in the area.
