I actually did a blog post last night – around 10:30 pm! But for some reason I kept getting an error message when I tried to upload it from Live Writer. Then I saved it (I thought) so I could close LW and open it back up. Nope, it didn’t save, so I lost the whole post. And I was just too tired at that point to start over.
We have spent our first night in our fiver. It was wonderful and also a little scary, as we had a severe thunderstorm warning in the county here, and tornado watches in some counties around us. We were still too excited to get a lot of sleep as we were awake a little after 6 this morning. So here I am, trying this blog entry again!
Back to yesterday…
We started off with a cloudy day, which basically would turn out to be the recurring pattern for the whole day. We would drive out of it, and it would get sunny, and then a while later, we would drive back in to another stormy area.
Around 5 o’clock we stopped at a Wal-Mart to pick up our supplies for the week. That took a while, because we had to pick up stuff for meals, but also condiments etc. And then we headed for RVs for Less dealership lot.
It was quite strange heading into a deserted dealership lot. No one was here to greet us except the guard cats! They were pretty friendly though.
And then, there it was…our first view of our new fiver…
What a great moment!
It seemed so strange to open the door and step in to OUR new fiver.
And then it was time to unload the truck.
We finally sat down around 8:30 to have our first meal in our fiver – a sandwich we picked up at the store.
Yes, Harry is as tired as he looks.
Our new truck did awesome (Max – short for Maximillian). This was our first substantial trip with the truck. We traveled a total of 816 miles from NY to our last fillup in TN. We filled up three times with a total of 48.75 gallons, which gave us an average of 16.74 mi/gal. The trip cost us $191.02 for fuel. We expected to spend more, so that was awesome.
Our most surprising moment of the day…
I was making our bed.
And then I pulled back the bedspread.
Let me give you a closer look.
Yes it is!! Our lost, but not forgotten camera!!!
Is that amazing, or what? As much as I joked about buying the fiver so we could look for our camera, I NEVER really expected to find it. haha I still can’t believe I really found it.
And that wraps up my recap of yesterday – what today holds in store for us, I’m not quite sure. They are supposed to start working on our truck at 9 am. I’m sure that Harry will be doing more testing, and I will be doing more unpacking. Should be another exciting day!
I will let you all know tonight!
P.S. After reading Phyllis’ comment, I realized that some of you may have missed the story of my lost camera – so here it is.
