My son came up for a visit yesterday and we had a great conversation. I mentioned that he has never had a ride in our last motorhome and we have had it for a year and half or so. I then suggested that since it could use some fuel, let's take it for a ride and get some diesel. That idea went over well and I disconected the electric, the wife locked the door on the house, and my son walked up to open the gate. My wife and I got into the RV and we drove it up the driveway, through the gate, and picked up our son. Then I headed down to get some fuel. That hundred gallon tank was pretty thirsty. I have been going to fill it up for quite some time because I don't like the condensation to build up in it. Normally I stop and fill it up just before I get home from a trip. I don't know why I didn't do that the last time out.
Anyway, we drove over to Cleveland, TX and picked up 59 south. Got off at the Splendora exit and I pulled over and told him he could drive it back home to Cut & Shoot. I think that made his day, since he kept saying that it was "nice, real nice". My rig only weighs 29,500 pounds loaded, but since he has a commercial truck driving license, I was impressed that he thought driving it was "nice". This was the first time he drove anything with the wheels so far behind the driver's seat, but he did a perfect job and even told me a few things about it that I didn't know. He got it back home and parked. It was a good day. Any day out in the rv is a good day for me. That was the first time since I purchased it that I got to ride in right seat. I told him I would hire him as our driver, but he has really good job and I know that my "dollar a day and found " would not be sufficient (grin). Now, you all have yourselves a great day, you hear?
