Cousin Eddie might be at your door soon!

The story you are about to read is 100% true.  And 100% wacko!

Peter was recently on the phone with one of his dad's longtime best friends.  His friend happens to be named John too (irrelevant).  Anyhow, he has this RV ... You know, the BIG kind that has the driving portion attached... a 34 foot, bucket seat, home on wheels.   Pete's dad always wanted one ... this one in particular.  Apparenlty John's kids don't want anything to do with the perfectly functional Cousin Eddie Mobile (who knows, maybe they aren't secret rednecks with a hankering for road adventures).  John decided to GIVE it to US!  Yes, GIVE US A VERY NICE 34-FOOT RV!  

So after discussing this for 5 minutes we thought, "hmm... WHY NOT and HELL YEAH!"   We love our little Airstream, but come on ... Bigger bed, bigger bed ROOM, bigger bathroom, full kitchen, we don't have to haul it behind our car, and IT'S FREE! 

The best part -  we need to go to San Diego and drive it back!  Road trip!  

We have our tickets booked (free because of airline miles) and we are off to San Diego - me, Pete and Matine  -  to pick up our new home on wheels.  The Family Truck-ster. Our first family road trip in our new RV.  Our "proposed" travel plan is below ... This is fair warning to our friends that live in our path ... We will be parking it in front of YOUR house!  (kidding .... sort of)

Don't let Pete drive it on logging roads. A tour of the southeast might be in order.
