Update time - August 25, 2023

 After 9 days camping at the Thousand Trails park in La Conner, WA, we headed back over the mountains to Yakima to be close to our daughter Kim & family.

Kim's In-laws invited us to stay on their property in Yakima. We got parked and were very thankful to have water, 30 amp electrical, and a place to dump right next to us. 

On July 11th, we had a birthday party for Jessie (her 3rd) and a belated celebration for Ally (5 years old). 

Later in July, Donna and I drove our truck down to Yuma and emptied our 10 x 10 storage unit and moved it all up to a bigger unit in Yakima. 

On the 1st of August, we thanked our moochdocking hosts and moved into downtown Yakima to the Yakima RV Park. The housing market was still bad for buyers and we were ready to possibly spend the winter there.

In August, we watched Ally & Jessie while Kim & Chris took a cruise to the Bahamas. Right after that, we decided to pursue a different path towards a home here in Washington. There was nothing in our price range that was decent. So we started looking to just buy a used double wide mobile home in a senior park here in Yakima. And we found one. 

We looked at and fell in love with one. We made a cash offer, $4,900 less than the asking price, and they accepted. 

Bam!! And fast forward to today. We have emptied our storage unit and we are still getting everything organized in our new place. We have now spent 4 nights here. I have a big honey dew list of things to do, but we have a home.

There is even a place here to park (store) our RV. They want just $25.00 a month. I think our plans now are to clean up the RV and post it for sale. Then sell or trade in our truck and get something smaller and cheaper to drive. We shall see.

We even got our Washington State Driver's License. 

It is all coming together...

The Fergs out .......

  1. Nothing wrong with a double wide, since my mother spent a couple decades in hers.
