|Ally our 2016 American Allegiance|
This was not my idea, I was quite satisfied with our Excursion, but Jerry wanted newer, better, it had under 62,000 miles which is nothing on a diesel, but he wanted this upgrade, tag axle and a hundred other things, newer. He began to develop a litany of things that would have to be done to fix the Excursion, and admitted it would cost way less than the new coach, but that he felt it was time to upgrade .

what a siege and chore unloading and loading. We were loaded up
for winter, so it took days to transfer stuff.
Back to Ally, Jerry spotted this American Coach and had been on the lookout to upgrade, even though we really liked our 2008 Excursion. I was reluctant to do this, spending really big buck$ and then some, but I should have known that once he starts on looking at a new vehicle, it is going to happen. Well while we were in Sefner, he couldn't get the right deal on the price of this new coach nor on trade in for ours. I was relieved but his mental wheels kept on churning and turning. So we went on to Texas, Port Isabel where we intended to spend the rest of February and early March. That is another story entirely and although the weather was fabulous there along the gulf, that border area is just not a place I care to revisit. The RV Park was old and very cramped, so that we couldn't look out our windows without seeing the wall of another coach or trailer squeezed right next to us. That is jut not the way we like to live, so we were waiting out February and wiser for the experience.

We traveled to Goshen Indiana in May to a Pushers annual event that Jerry has wanted to attend for some time. Another long story and one chronicled on Facebook. We have some home projects under way including taking down 3 of our magnificent big ash trees from out back, victims of the emerald ash borer that has devastated this region. I had new quartz counter tops put into the kitchen and am still waiting on the tile for the backsplash. After I debated and pondered and made my decision, the contractor later advised that the tile was on backorder and there would be a 8 to 10 week delay. So although the counters were done end of April, we are waiting. Surely this will end, but I decided to wait, After all it took me 3 years to do this project that I have been thinking about and took me a month to decide on both counters and backsplash. So waiting and keeping busy at home, gardening, weeding, and life. This is the update for today, last photo of the happy man in our new vacation home.
