Still waiting......but it's all good!!

Image
Well, we are still waiting for our RV.  We were told, the other day, that it might be the first week of August, now.  That would be wonderful!!!

We understand that they are a small company and we'll take quality over getting it super quick!  They have had some delays and are working hard at getting caught up, but they will not compromise quality just to get something done faster.

We have spoken to a lot of people that have either bought one of these RV's or people that are currently waiting for theirs and they still maintain even with the longer wait, they would much rather buy from The RV Factory and know that they take their time putting units out, than a manufacturer that puts out thousands a week.

We just talked to a guy here in the park, at lunch, one day, who is currently broke down because of a big manufacturer that will not take the responsibility for the problem on their motor home but blames it on one of their vendors.  And, it has to do with the hydraulics, so it&…

Some random photos while driving to Yuma again!!

Image
Now that I was able to get my photos uploaded, I decided to just post a bunch that I took when we were making our way back to Yuma, AZ on July 2-3.
We saw signs along the highway about the Largest Wind chimes and we needed to take a break, anyway, so we pulled into this adorable town called Casey, IL.
They had the prettiest light poles along the streets into town.  Cute buildings, too!  

 We found the largest wind chimes.  We got out and across the street, was the largest rocking chair.  You can see how big it is by our truck that is parked across the street.  It is HUGE.



Then, we went in search of the largest Mailbox and you could walk up steps to stand inside, but we opted not to do that.

Across the street was the largest Pencil.  

And, just up the street was the largest bird cage.  A kind lady told us to get inside and she'd take our photo together.  

Somewhere along the way, in MO, I think, was this store.  We got there just as they were closing.  But, we were able to use the…

Dealing with some family issues

We are still in Yuma, for now.  We have been here since early morning on July 4th.  
David's Mom passed away a little before midnight, last night.  We are trying to decide what to do next.  We have some difficult decisions to make....as needing to come back to Yuma when we were already just four hours away from where we'd pick up our RV....has put a  real strain on our budget.....so we have to think this through very carefully.   
Our 5th wheel isn't ready yet and we haven't had any word as to when it WILL be ready.....so we are sort of in limbo!
Please pray that we can make the right decision for us....and that our 5th wheel gets finished soon!!
We know that God has everything under control......but it's just hard to be patient at times :-)  We are wondering if there is someplace else we can go to help out or work till the unit is ready to pick up.  I guess God will reveal that in His own time.
And, I know better than to pray for patience....lol  
I have a lot of …

Some interesting things in OH

Image
Our friends, Rita and Floyd took us to Jungle Jim's in Hamilton, OH.  What an awesome place to visit.  If you get a chance to go, you have to go!

This is at the entrance.



Then, you are greeted with this sign....too funny!

They even have cute stop and go lights inside.

 Checking out the different cheeses.  I couldn't believe how many types and from different countries.

The following were things I had never seen in a grocery store before. Boar's Heads
Chicken feet
Ducks heads.....not appetizing at all.

Beautiful produce section
And, the entrance to the bathrooms were hysterical.  I could have spent hours and hours and hours in that store and still never captured all that is in there.
I am really behind in posting to my blog.  
We have sort of had a few glitches in our travels.  First off, our RV isn't ready and won't be ready till possibly the end of July.
But, with that being said, it's a God Thing, as we got a call, on July 2nd that David's Mom was dying …

Waiting on our RV

Image
We are currently in OH....waiting on our RV to be finished.  It's going to take a little longer than we thought because of some shortages in inventory.

But, we are staying with friends and enjoying visiting them and seeing the landmarks around their city.

On Thursday, we took our friends, Rita and Floyd Holmes, and drove 4+ hours up to Elkhart, IN to tour the RV Factory, where our 5th wheel is being made.   Our sales rep told us it was in the assembly line.  So, I was so excited to see it.
Elkhart, Indiana

Upon entering the lobby, we were greeted with this sign
Then, we all took a tour of the factory, including Annie.  Our friends, from Ohio, went with us for the day.
This is our Sales Rep giving us the tour and explaining each phase of the factory and how the units are put together.  Very interesting.   David and Annie took up the lead.

She explained how they do all the wiring, plumbing, put in all the braces (about twice as many as most manufacturers), insulation and all the oth…

Tennessee to York, to OH....catching up!

Image
Oh where do I begin?

I think the last update was when we were in Tennessee.

Since then, we have been to York, PA and visited with my Cousins there for about 5 days.
We took Hwy 30 and went through Gettysburg, PA on our way to York.  We didn't take time to stop as we thought we'd be visiting it later.  We didn't end up going there but hopefully the next time we visit.

We did get a little tour of York by my Cousin's daughter, Kathy.  She showed us some of the different landmarks of their city.

One was the 1st Capitol of the US, York, PA





The Articles of Confederation were drafted and adopted in York, though they were not ratified until March 1781. York styles itself the first Capital of the United States, although historians generally consider it to be the fourth capital, after PhiladelphiaBaltimoreand Lancaster Then, we saw some of the 'row houses' as I call them.
