So, Yeah. Bought A New Truck

Just like my old truck but on steroids. 2019 Silverado 1500 (again) but with an 8-cylinder engine and better towing capabilities. We don’t take the RV anywhere cause going uphill is so (so!) slow. And expensive.

Upgrades with the old truck and the RV were, well, not nice. Truck would slow way down, downshift to 3rd and stay there. RPM’s 4k to 5k and you could watch the gas gauge go down down down. Semi’s would pass me! Very frustrating.

launch1cTook 4 days for the deal to go through. The dealer set it up to where it’d be under my name only; trying to build up my credit. BUT, the Credit Union said both of us have to be on the loan since my name is on our mortgage too. Shit. Didn’t take the CU very long to approve us: I only had to mention a couple of other Credit Unions that I’m already a member of once.

Have to put at least 500 miles on the new truck before hooking the RV up and taking it for a spin to see just how well it’ll do. So me and the dog got out and about yesterday for a few hours. Nice ride.

Otherwise, just not much going on around here. I spend my days puttering around the house waiting for the Wx to get decent. Is today so me and the Dog took off all our clothes and been doing as much outside as we can. Got up to 80 today! Cool!

We’re getting all set up to attend the Hollie Family reunion this year. I’ll be taking off a couple of weeks early to get the RV down there and SWMBO will be flying in the day before the reunion. Luckily she’ll be able to take a couple of weeks to travel back with me (with a stop in Oregon, Oh to see her folks). Her Son is going to house sit for us.

And that’s really about it. My life is pretty boring and I don’t post as much as I used to. Get busy doing other things.
