A little story and a big thanks to Doug and all!
About a year ago I had to sell my 8 emp due to family circumstance. Thought the dream was dead and almost sold all the tools...
So as these things go, the family circumstances changed... decided to move from Southern CA to Eugene OR....cheaper living
. Oh well, dun deal.
So we packed most of our stuff on Christmas day 2006. Dec 26th, woke at 3:15AM to smoke alarms, that's right the house was on fire! Got out with minutes to spare, wearing only boxer shorts.
Luckily every one including pets survived. House, not so much.
So we salvaged what we could and moved, oh yea, U-Haul broke down en route
Needless to say the stress of moving, fire, broken truck, new job, buying first house and dealing with the rainy winter up here was taking it's toll.
Now the point of all this is to say thanks to Doug and all of the members here for creating such a great community. Through all this mess, I kept checking in and reading the posts trying to stay connected. Dougs photos on the home page really served as inspiration to keep the dream alive.
So the good news is...... wait for it...... on Friday I drove up to Vans and picked up my bran' spankin' new RV-8 tail kit...Woooooo Hooooo!
Spent the weekend counting, and drilling, and clecoin'. And yes I'm happy as a Pig in Poo.
Thanks again to all for creating a great extended RV family. Without it I might just have sold them tools.
