Little Graybeard

Graybeard Has Been Sold – Technically We Are Homeless! 

Choices For A New LV

Look!  To the East!  It’s the sun back out in full splendor.  Ah, how nice to see it again.  We also have a beautiful deep blue sky.  Just another day in paradise.

Let’s take a walk around our community.

A parched and thirsty horse.

Anyone up for a bike ride?  I found this so fascinating, the fact that someone could actually bend and shape the wire into the form of a bike.

Cute and simple.

Dig those ears and those eyes.

I find these little metal sculptures so fascinating.  Someone has a real talent, far more than I do.

Today it was time to do some maintenance

on Little Graybeard.  It was time for an oil and filter change, tire rotation and the air conditioner needed some attention.  A few hours later and my wallet was a bit lighter but now we know that the little guy is in good health.

As for the big guy

Graybeard is going to a new home.  My son Paul has decided to buy Graybeard and will be coming out within the next month to take him back home with him to Ohio.  Technically, that means we are homeless!  I don’t believe, however, that he’ll kick us out before have a new rig.  Which we’re working on.

We have narrowed it down to three choices.

A 2005 Newmar Mountain Aire  4023 which we have inspected already and fell in love with immediately.  Indeed, we love everything about it except the price.  Time will tell if we can negotiate something more in our favorite.

Next in line is a Newmar 2005 Dutch Star 3815 whose outward appearance we really like.  In addition it has a number of upgrades that we really like.  It has all LED lighting, new day/night shades, etc.  We’re going to inspect this one this weekend.  The pictures we have supplied by the current owner make it a real contender.  But, as they say seeing is believing.

2005 Newmar KOUNTRY STAR 3910

This is our third contender, a 2005 Newmar Kountry Star 3910.  This coach has just been completely remodeled – porcelain tile floors throughout, new carpet in the bedroom and the slides, one piece washer/dryer, new faucets, etc.   However, all we have are pictures so far therefore we’ll be taking a look at this one this weekend as well.

So, after we’ve inspected the last two, we’ll sit and fill out our spreadsheet listing pro and con’s for each and see where the chips fall.

Our day on The Road of Retirement has come to an end.  I’ve been to the dentist.  We had the car serviced.  We found out today that Graybeard has been sold.  We are now definitely on the hunt for a new  LV.  Wish us well.

Thanks again for joining us today.  We always appreciate your company and your comments.  Catch you again tomorrow.

These are the voyages of  Graybeard and it’s two intrepid travelers.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before

See you on down the road!

  1. I am soooo excited to see or at least hear about the next two units. The fact that your son is buying the RV is good for you, but also good for him because he knows the unit. Barbara will love the washer/dryer. No more dragging the laundry back and forth to the Wishy Washy.
