Ok, in the last blog I said be ready for the next big news. Well are you ready?- drum roll please.
Well new to us anyway. It is a 2008 Chevy 3500 dually extended cab, 26,400 mi.
On June 28th when we pulled out from home we had taken camper and 2004 truck to get weights.
We were a fair bit overweight on the truck and tire capacities. In debate we thought it best to find a dually to give us a better safety factor.
The 2004 had served us well for 5 years. Maybe I shouldn't have weighed it, we would probably have kept it.
Buying the truck was a tough decision to make, but for many reasons it was the right thing to do.
One thing, I knew the 04 truck had been in an accident before we bought it. When getting the trade price I
was told it was a roll over. Guess that explains the noisy air infiltration by doors.
So I am excited to hit the road with it. It will be the first time we have had a vehicle with the fancies.(leather,elec. skylight,premium stereo,etc.).
I just told Wendy we will be eating wienie water soup for a while. ' )
It will be a learning process driving a dually, but now I will start getting that extra exercise I have been meaning to get. Nothing like parking at the further points in parking lots or maybe down the block : )
Wendy told me we are getting a truck with hips. Boy I laughed and can't get that out of my mind.
Thanks to Harry and Jessica setting us straight on removing verification to post comments. It should be easier to comment. We are not the most savvy on this, but learning as we go.
Welcome new member Travelbug Susan, it is neat to read others adventures to.
While waiting for the hitch installation we took a nice stroll by Dubuque, Iowa. And we managed to stay out of the luring casinos.
Years ago we had seen a house maybe just moved or about to be and they had strategically placed what looked to be witches legs. ala Wizard of Oz. I always wished I had taken a pic. So now I try and make the effort to go back and get the shot. You may never go that way again.
Thanks for checkin in.
