After spending the last week packing Mayhem, giving away things on craigslist (hint: list it for free and 20 people will call before you can leave the room; list it for a fair and reasonable price and you’ll hear nothing but crickets chirping for days) and furiously cleaning our apartment, we turned in our keys and waved goodbye to our homey beach pad.
The plan was to have Kali drive Mayhem to the dealer while I followed behind in our Matrix to help provide a buffer when switching lanes. In most places drivers are kind enough to move the hell out of the way if a big rig puts on their blinker, but in San Diego everyone takes that as a cue to speed up and pass… even if they’re quite a ways back. Anyhow, ranting aside, we were heading to the dealer to pick up the towing dolly we had shipped to their location so they could assemble it and then show us how to hook it up and use it.
We did it… we bought our new home! For the last few months we’ve been wandering around RV dealerships and trying to decide which floor plan and basic features we wanted, and it’s all finally come to fruition.[..]
