One week from today we will be at the dealer to pick up our brand new 2013 Airstream 25FB Flying Cloud! Are we excited? Understatement of the month. Are we busier than normal? Ditto. For the next few days, we’ll be running full speed to check the boxes on one of Janet's world famous to-do lists:

  • Packing our recently purchased items for the galley. The biggie here of course is the coffee pot. 
  • Pack plastic storage boxes with bedding, pillows and other bedroom necessities.
  • Complete inventory and pack tools, hoses, and other items to carry on the road.
  • Gadget had her bath this weekend but according to Janet, she needs a manicure at PetSmart before departure.

The Tundra, aka Louie, is sitting patiently in the garage ready to go. He can't wait to meet Thelma. 

We ordered a new ProPride 3P hitch last week and was assured by Sean Woodruff at ProPride that it would be delivered to our dealer by Friday in time for the Monday morning installation. He has a great reputation for customer service, so fingers are crossed that he's a man of his word.

So, here we are in the final countdown. As I write this I feel like it's all a dream. In just a few days we will standing at the door of Thelma for the first time and at long last, owners of our very own Airstream. 

Hurry clock.
