A New Ride--But Not Ours

Casa Grande, AZ
Sundance RV Resort

Polly and Vern had invited us to Heber with them to celebrate their 10th anniversary, but we had previously made plans to go to Benson to see Don and Sharon who we hadn't seen since Quartzite.  In not going to Heber, we missed seeing Polly and Vern's new truck.

They came down on Thursday for a visit.  What a gorgeous truck.  They told me when they ordered it that it was going to be brown.  It's a metallic brown the color of our favorite thing--dark chocolate.  It almost looks black in the sunlight.  
Needless to say they are happy owners and look forward to many miles of adventures.  This GMC has many more bells and whistles than their other one.  Vern also has a one of a kind as he has two back up cameras.

The first thing Bill and I both noticed was how quiet this truck is.  It really rides nice.  Congratulations on your anniversary and your anniversary present, Vern and Polly.  

Bill was trying to decide where to put his generator box for the Honda generator.  It is a steel box with cut outs for the cord, exhaust and choke.  You can lock it up and it is bolted to the truck bed.  This should make it a lot easier on the old back, so we aren't lifting it so much.  Also no worries about it getting stolen.  

It was nice to have someone else's opinion on where to locate it in the bed of the truck.  In very short time, the four bolts were drilled and it was bolted down.

It's been a while since we've visited with Polly and Vern by themselves.  There was a lot of talk about going to the 56th Escapade in Vermont.  It was fun letting them know some other friends who will be attending. Since they will be departing for their annual Mexican trip soon, we probably won't see them again until Vermont.

Of course, there was a lot of exchanging places to see and places to park.  I'm worried about having enough time to see all that we want to see on the way.  We still have doctor appointments in April so can't set an actual departure date yet.  

It was nice to have Vern and Polly around as I was waiting for a call from a friend whose husband was having an important procedure.  It did make the time go by quicker.
