Thanks, Grant.  I have to admit, we're pretty darn thrilled with it!  All real wood inside, such good quality workmanship, and just barely enough miles to be broke in. . . it was a lot of money for us to spend in this type of economy, but we just knew that we would regret it forever if we didn't purchase that coach.

It was a little scary to buy something like that and then take off on a 3000 mile trip instead of getting to do a shakedown trip, but what the heck, Larry and I have never shrunk from an adventure.  We're hiding out in LA for yet one more day, then back to Quartzsite, and on towards home. . . . not too quickly, but more quickly than we'd like.

Looks like Oklahoma got hit with another ice storm and then 4-5 inches of snow on top of that, so I sure am glad we're out here enjoying the 60-70 degree weather!  I had our girl shut down our office completely on Thursday and hopefully, she'll be able to reopen on Monday if the roads clear up.  My son went to our house and turned the heat up to 70 and cut the power to the well, hoping that we'd survive any moderate term power outages, the rest is just up to fate.

Anyway, thanks again Grant, I sure appreciate the compliment.  Christy

Well, we were running down the road one day (you know this is how ALL of my stories start, right?? Cheesy) on a day outing, and as we headed towards Indio, CA (which is, I'm informed by my mom, the date capital of the US), I pointed out to Larry that we were SOOOO close to LA, we might as well take a few days and visit the sights! 

So, we grabbed the Jeep and made a quick dash for LA, staying on Hollywood Blvd for two nights, then moving on over here to Santa Monica for another couple.  We head back to Quartzsite tomorrow, and will consult with our friends (yes, believe it or not, we actually do have a COUPLE of people who still claim us), and decide when and where we head next.

It's been a hoot and we've had a great time, ESPECIALLY teasing our families back in Oklahoma, who've had to deal with yet ANOTHER ice storm, can you believe it!  Anyway, that's what up with us!  Christy
