Thank You…and…Happy Trails!

“I want it. It’s exactly what I want.” And with those words, my heart sank. The reality set in rather quickly because next came,”Guess we better get her hitched up.”  WAIT…this is too fast! I was totally unprepared to see our baby hitched up behind a strangers tow vehicle. The anxiety was almost more than I could take! I’m not one to get super attached to my stuff but, this was different. Gut wrenching, instant grief and then I felt grateful to have had her. She was so pitiful when we brought her home, I never dreamed she could be so beautiful. I must admit we both feel a little bit, OK, a lot of satisfaction in knowing we saved her. We had no idea how much she would give back though.  So…Thank You and Happy Trails to our 1976 Overlander! Disco on!

  1. Awesome! So happy/sad for you! You SHOULD feel good about giving her new life! We were just saying a few days ago, “if we could sell our trailer fast, we would buy Dan & Steph’s!” Now we don’t have to think about that….Congrats, you two!

  2. You really put me in that moment. You did a good deed. You mad her pretty so she could go back out into the world. Part of your love and energy goes back out there with her. 🙂
