Location: Dome Rock Road West side of Quartzsite, Arizona
Slept fairly well last night. Woke up at 4:30 but fell back to sleep and didn't wake fully till the sun came up around 7 o'clock. It is going to be another beautiful day just like yesterday. I'm hoping for a phone call today, but not expecting one.
Yuma and I had our breakfast and walked around the area a little bit. I have two projects to do. One: hook two 100 watt solar panels together and get them going and two: fix a water leak in one of the outside bays. You know which one I picked.
I hate dealing with water leaks. I can never seem to get them really fixed. Maybe slow the leak a little but never fixed. I'm just not a plumber and never want to be. I'll do this one tomorrow. :)) So, to keep busy I worked on the two solar panels and managed to get that done. I'm happy with it.
Then I decided to run over to Blythe, California to the Albertson grocery store. Only about 20 miles away, so didn't take long to get there. Poor Yuma was down to his last can of dog food, so it was a must.
On the return trip I took a few pictures of I-10 going through the Dome Rock Mountains.
When I got home around 2 o'clock and making plans to go to another Happy Hour with my friends, my phone rang. I'll be darn if it wasn't Kenny! He said that the owner had accepted my offer and to come down to his office at my earliest convenience to get this deal done.
Poor Yuma is stuck in the MH again as I head out the door. I think we both Kenny and I felt a sense of relief. We sat there for a good half hour talking about our pasts and how we got to this place in our lives and laughed about the events of this last week and how it turned out fine in the end. I took my camera but forgot my memory card, so no pictures of this momentous event. Darn!
He's happy, I'm happy and hopefully the previous owner is happy. I didn't try to low ball, I just bid based on Nada book value with what I thought was a fair bid.
Only took about two hours to wrap it up with most of it just us getting to know each other better. Kenny is a great guy once you get to know him with an interesting history.
Once I got home to the MH and relaxed, I think the adrenaline finally wore off and I started feeling down and somewhat depressed. I guess that is normal when you have been keyed up for a number of days.
There was one issue with the White Lion that I learned and don't like but it isn't a show stopper. However, it will lead to several thoughts and discussions on how to remedy in the next coming weeks, so it isn't all over yet. I do now own the beast, so don't fret over that.
Anyway, with that teaser out of the way, let's cover what happens next hopefully. RV LifeStyles is now going to take the White Lion back to their shop and go over it with a fine toothed comb and fix everything they find wrong, down to replacing the old wiper blades. At the previous owner's expense thank goodness.
This should take about a week. Once that is done, they will call me in and their expert coach inspector, Susie will go through every aspect of what they did and have me give the coach a final inspection of everything and sign-off. She will also go through all the bells and whistles, buttons and switches to make sure I know how everything works. Think I'll bring some dirty clothes to wash when we review the washer/dryer combo. There is also a 90 day guarantee on everything so if I have a problem on the road, I can bring it back to have it fixed.
That was the happenings for today. I want to thank the commenters that gave me their thought and ideas. I appreciate that immensely. I answer every comment, so be sure to go back and read my response if you like. If you ask a question I will answer.
I also know there are many of you that read my blog but do not comment. I am glad you take the time to read and hopefully enjoy the Great Southwest through my eyes. You also get a tiny look at my personal life too.
The adventure continues. See you later.
