Leaving Memories Behind...

Just when our patience and time was running out, we got an offer on the house. We thought we would have 30-45 days to close, but the new owners wanted it in 2 1/2 weeks.  The RUSH was on....

Once the trailer was a hanger for our friend airplanes; Jerry made an offer that must have been too good to pass up.  Now will it be big enough to hold all the things we wanted to keep?

Started scratching our heads wondering it it would all this is just a small portion!!

Before getting a contract on the house, Deb was scheduled to have hardware removed from a previous injury.  Surgery on Monday and was packing on Tuesday just to get it all done.  Just no time for recovery! (this picture was taken almost 4 weeks later)

Against all odds and logical reasoning and scraping a few lines in the pavement from a very overloaded trailer made it to Brother Bill's with only one minor issue. We had one blow out on the way up to Oklahoma.  Hope Oklahoma Highway department does not make us pay for the grooves left along the roadway.

All loaded up and ready to head out!

Trailer loaded down with motorcycle, land cruiser, and load of wood under the tarp.  Couldn't have done it all without all the help of friends and family.  Special thanks to David.

As we head out of town, the Jeep broke down in the middle of a three lane road.  Thanks go out to a Lewisville police officer and another gentlemen, which helped push Deb out of the road.

We had things stuffed everywhere in the RV to just to get out of the house. Once we arrived we moved everything to the front just to be able to sleep.

Shiner time!!  Our way to end a heck time and to new beginnings!!


  1. Yeah - you did it! Hope you can find a place to store all that stuff.

  2. Retirement finally arrived!! Woo Hoo!! We finally got all the stuff loaded and thanks to Jerry's brother we were able to park the trailer at his place.

    Looks like you have been see some neat places lately, as I really enjoy your blogs.
