Tumbleweed Is Excited

(Avon Park, FL) Hi 85 Lo 58 – Hi Everyone! Tumbleweed here… you know, Jim & Dee’s house on wheels? Jim & Dee are a little tired from all the work they’ve done getting me ready for our trip tomorrow, so I thought I’d take over the blog today.

I’ve been sitting here in one place for four months now, and I gotta tell you it’s been getting a little boring. My wheels, brakes, and springs are starting to feel a little stiff. And my legs are starting to cramp from being in one position for so long. We’re finally leaving tomorrow, so it’ll feel good to stretch things out a bit. Jim & Dee have been working hard getting me all spiffed up, stowing, reorganizing, dumping, and flushing, They did a good job; I now feel lean and mean and ready to roll!

We’re moving out tomorrow morning around 9am. We have an appointment at an RV hospital near Tampa for me to get a complete check-up. They’ll be checking a total of 28 different things on me. If you’re interested in what they’ll be checking, you can see the list here. Once that’s done we’re heading to Ocala, about 125 miles from here. It’ll be a short day, but we’re easing into travel mode.

So I’m excited to get moving again. Dee is REALLY excited. Jim is a little more low key, but I can tell he’s excited too. I think I’ll mess with his head tomorrow morning by refusing to bring my slides in.  Hehe  Better not… he’d freak! :)

That’s it for me. Dee will be back to writing tomorrow. Until then… I GET TO MOVE!!

Hi "Tumbleweed", I can see you are all getting very excited.
But haste makes waste, so don't do anything rash now! Don't get your wires in a twist, (you don't have knickers, so you can't get them in a twist), and get your guardians safely to your next destination.
Happy Trails, From "TranStar", Penny's motor home.
