Well, today was the day!
We said GOODBYE to our trailer....
With heavy hearts.
We've never named our RV as others seem to do - I don't know why - maybe because she is a trailer and not a motorhome. I have always referred to it as a HER for some reason - not sure why.
I'm one to get attached to things - places, homes, RVs (strange I know since we have lived in 6 homes in the last 10 years!) and so it was probably hardest on me to say farewell. I didn't sleep well at all last night - sad to say goodbye and wondering if we were doing the right thing! I spent the day reminding myself what had led us to make the decision to sell our great little trailer after almost 5 years.
We have spent more time then most - but less then some - in our little trailer. She has joined us and sheltered us on 3 long winter road trips. We have lived in her full time on and off over the last 5 years for a total of 20 months or so - a long time in a 21' travel trailer.
A LOT of GREAT memories.
But our family is larger now then when we bought it, and after the three winters with it south we realize that a motorhome would suit us better - or at least we THINK it will. We'll see.
I suppose it is a bit hard because we don't have anything to replace it with, not even a thought of what our future RV will be like aside from thinking we are looking for a Class C model.
And so, today marks the end of an era for our little Wood Clan.
The new owners were excited - as excited as we were almost 5 years ago. We are thrilled that they are thrilled.
They promised to take good care of her.
You have been a HUGE part of our family - you have kept us dry, warm and safe and for that we say
Today Interesting Link: This may seem like a strange link but I thought I would pass on the free photo editing site that I use. Often times I don't link sites because I figure that everyone knows about a certain site. Why I think that I don't know - there are millions (or more?) sites on the internet. Anyway, I USED to use picnik but they sold out to Google. I was heartbroken at first, but that was before I found PicMonkey - LOVE PicMonkey!
