Out of the camper

Well with a glad and sad heart,I sold our 5th wheel over the weekend.As I've posted last year I lost my wife of 48 yrs to cancer. We loved to travel and see the country,and we did get to a lot of places. After she died,I lost the interest of going.Just no fun by your self.I did take the camper out for a three day trip to a lake we liked to go to.Just was really lost in that 42'. I decided to sell and I did.I had a bunch of tears when the new owners pulled it out of the driveway. It was her pride and joy.The good thing is it's going to Table Rock Lake.In Shell knob.We used to go there 3-4 times a year when the kids were little,back in the day.Stayed at Lunker landing. Any ways,I think she would be happy with that.All y'all have a safe and fun time with your travels.Now to sell the the "Big Black Heifer"

So sorry to hear this.... one of life's hard decisions. My B-I-L took his unit to a consignment RV seller this past weekend. He had a stroke from which he appeared to recover but his trailer backing skills have diminished.



Here's hoping for good fortune in the future with bright and sunny skies ahead.

Very sorry to hear of your loss. Camping creates memories which then become treasures.
