Dreaming Big

Happy Valentine's day to all of you celebrating and happy Monday to those who are not. We don't usually do the flowers/candy/dinner thing and would rather spend our time together doing something we both enjoy. This year part of our celebration consisted of spending Saturday at the Minneapolis RV show.

I lost count of all the campers and motorhomes we toured. All I know is that we should have never started with the big Class A motorcoaches. After looking at those, the smaller Class C's are very disappointing. A has come to the decision that when it's time to upgrade, we're going with the big rig. She was especially interested in this one.

We would buy used of course since most of these new cost more than our house! The thing is I can just see A behind the wheel...and if you ever see me behind the wheel you better get outta my way!

When we arrived at the show it was early and still kind of quiet but as the afternoon progressed it became busier and people...well people just became more of their disgusting selves. Who walks into an RV and farts? The stench of BO was so overwhelming in a few areas that we had to leave. Seriously people, soap, water and deodorant are cheap...use some!

This past week we booked our first big RV trip for the summer and we're heading east. Off to visit family and friends. We rented a car so we can take off on a couple day trips but we're not really sure where we are heading yet. Maybe east? Maybe south? Who knows but that's the fun part. I'm sure we'll find something to get into.

I sent A an email card this morning. I always wondered what I would look like as a blonde.

Jude-Knowing my sweetie, I knew upgrading was inevitable!

Jess-Unfortunately not making it as far a Savannah this trip...but it's on my list.

Tommy-A said she used to have a mullet...I've seen pictures but she was in fashion then. :)

Your upcoming trip sounds great. I am so sick of damn Ohio, I can't tell you.

Love to you and A.,

CO@50-Welcome and thanks for the comment. Stop by to visit anytime.

SB-I am heading through your way. For me it's nice to leave this flat swamp and return to the hills. Love you as always and hope you're feeling better.
