In our last update, we posted that we had just bought a Class C motorhome.
Well, that sure is old news. Covid hit the country, and the world really changed.
Our daughter, Kim and her husband Chris, along with little Ally, moved in with us during these crazy times, and Kim gave birth to our newest grand-daughter Jessie in July.
By August, they found an apartment in the Phoenix area and moved there.
Around the same time, my sister Karen, and her husband Cliff, sold their place here in Yuma and moved back up to Washington. And our best friends Bev & Tim, also sold their place and moved back to their other place in Washington too.
Around this time, we decided to down-size once again. We sold our Class C motorhome (with all my solar gear on it), and traded our Nissan Sentra in and bought a 2014 Nissan Titan pickup truck.
Then we looked for a small travel trailer and found a 2010 Dutchman Sport 26 foot model.
Then I was called to go to work in California to a fire camp. I worked at the Red Salmon Complex fire camp for 23 days. During this time, Donna was called out to a fire camp at Loyalton, CA. She was out for 6 days.
Once we both got back, we set off on our summer trip north to Washington in our little travel trailer.
We had a great time visiting our kids
and got back to Yuma in mid October.
The trailer was way too small for us, and we made a decision to sell our rig and trailer.... and house... and get back on the road full-time.
In November, we sold our little travel trailer and traded our Nissan Titan in for a Silverado 1 ton dually truck.
We are currently looking for a big 5th wheel to buy. Then we will put our house up for sale here in Yuma. I am also selling my 1972 VW Beetle. I think we will end up with a small mini-storage here when we finally take off.
We also just took a quick trip to South Dakota to get our drivers licenses. We are claiming South Dakota as our domicile again.
I have new solar panels, batteries, and inverter to install in the new rig as soon as we get it.
I guess this is the beginning of 'RVing with the Fergs V2.0'.
The Fergs out .......
