Today, I made one more visit to the dealership where my rig is located. I needed to take a few more measurements to ensure that I have scaled down enough to fit my things in the storage or “basement” areas of the RV. To my extreme pleasure, everything that I am keeping will fit just fine with a bit of room to spare!
Knowing that I had achieved my storage goals, I ventured down the road a couple of miles to Camping World. My purpose was to get the final quote on the after market add-ons that I will need to fulltime comfortably – – these include solar panels, rear and side cameras, in-motion satellite and a winterization package. I was ecstatic when I discovered that the final cost would be a few hundred dollars under what I estimated!
After receiving the good news, I couldn’t resist exploring all of the goodies that Camping World has to offer – – so many items that will be useful and help to stay organized in the motorhome, but also, dozens of items that I could have been using in my brick and mortar homes to keep things as tidy as I like to keep them. Who knew?!? Well, any-who, I picked up a couple of small items that I couldn’t resist and made my way to the counter…
The gentleman at the register asked if I was, “a member.” Trying not to sound like a rookie, I said, “I’m a Good Sam’s member.” This was the answer he was looking for – – whew! I went on to tell him that I didn’t have my card with me and he asked for my phone number. Voilà – – there I was in the computer! Somehow, that made me feel like a kid in a candy store even moreso when I saved a few bucks with the members only discount – – all official and stuff – – LOL!
My Lola and I left the store and headed to our now temporary domicile. Today was definitely a great day! I’m no longer taking baby steps toward the goal – – I’m now in a full sprint and the finish line (or starting line, depending how you look at it,) is in clear sight!
