Moving Day

Dubach, LA

Friday was indeed moving day.....From our 2014 Cedar Creek our 2016 Open Range.

We arrived at the dealership shortly after 9.   A short time later the skies opened.   So they moved our new rig under a shelter and placed the Cedar Creek next to it.

The rains stopped.   Leaving lots of mud behind.

Our daughter D'Juana drove 2 hours from near Houston to help in the move.  Thank You!   After a couple of hours my back ached, I hurt everywhere.  She never slowed down.  Hey... I have 27 years on her.

Lots more inside storage.  Lots less basement storage.  Len says he will make it work.  Today he is cleaning our some stuff.

After taking a lunch break at Chili's we worked til around 4.

At that point it was just find a place to put it and close it up.  We had an appointment to meet with the financial manager and write a check, ouch.

Finally we pulled out at 5:30 headed to northern Louisiana about 285 miles away.   After driving about 150 miles we found a truck stop in Carthage, Tx. and pulled in the for night.  We parked right behind the Dennys and slowly walked like old people in for dinner.

Up again at 7 and off for the reminder of the trip.   We arrived at the United Methodist Outdoor Wilderness Learning (OWL) Center  about 10:30 and were greeted by our team leaders Everette and Elizabeth Easley.   Two other couples pulled in a few hours later.   Last night it was BBQ at a local place in nearby Ruston, LA.

This morning it was church in Ruston and then Italian.

Today it was more organizing.  And Len got the TV's set up with our DirectTV system.

Tomorrow we start our 3 weeks volunteering here at the OWL Center.  I am thinking the lifting and moving got us ready for whatever lies ahead on this project.  Or maybe not.


  1. You two are like ever ready bunnies!

  2. Your both will need some R&R after all this and the OWL center job is done. Hope you enjoy your new home on wheels

  3. Let's hope that your backs don't tighten up too much on you.
    Your new home looks great.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  4. That was great that your daughter was able to help. That kind of moving is a lot of work!

  5. Most people think that because we live in such small quarters, we don't have much stuff to move. It is indeed amazing just how much stuff we accumulate and how we squirrel it away in the storage that is available in an RV. A lot of work!
