I too am glad it worked out for you. Now with the Sunday delivery instead of Saturday that's one more day for snow to melt.

The new delivery date will work much better for a few reasons. Looks like a high temp of about 40 compared to 18. Next week will be high 30's and allow me to chip away the sides of the driveway so I can at least get it temporarily parked. I never included a picture of my driveway. I feel kinda stupid...but then...I really thought that the weather was going to have an abrupt change for the warmer. It had to. Usually does and especially by this time in March. Nope didnt happen. I was wrong. We still could get some good snows ahead too but this cold has been a real different one for sure. So glad I have a wonderful dealer who is willing to be so adaptable to make things work better for me.

After we purchased our Georgetown I realized that we had not spent all the money necessary to keep it. The first thing was putting in a 14' gate on the road after I almost got stuck backing through the 12' gate while being "directed " by my son-in-law. He discovered his father-in-law knew a few bad words! Next it was reconfiguring the driveway so I could turn the beast around without knocking the porch off or bashing the side of the house. Then we needed a 50 amp pedestal (I hand dug the ditch to save money). Then I tore down 1/2 of my 20X40 pole barn to make it wider and higher on one side. Then the next year I extended the barn an extra 8' to better cover the motorhome in storage. Then I bought an air compressor and a.......well you get the idea. Looks like you might begin your wallet desicating purchases with a tractor?

Ohhh I definitely don't deserve all of this! Wait a sec...I thought the good behavior gifts came from the guy in the red suit?!

The gifts/packages have been coming quite regularly so far this year..
Popup Gizmos, Rhino Flex Sewer Hose, RV Awning Tie Downs, RV Screen Door Cross Bar, B-D RV Battery Locks, Bal X-Chocks, Mattress Toppers, LED Awning Lights....

The big one to come is clearing, levelling and building a pad to park the new trailer next to the house. How did I ever come to believe that I was ready to camp and wouldn't need anything for the new camper...after all I did lots of camping last year in the popup and didnt need to buy anything!

Whoah whoah whoah there big fella! Memorial Weekend?? Are you crazy! I can't even call that an optimistic prediction. Rather..the way the weather is looking...its pure fantasy!

So good to know that another of my fellow Minnesotans is struggling thru this winter with me. Soooo good to know I am not alone!
