Happy Saturday evening everyone. Today has been a busy day for us today. Rob mowed and cleaned up the yard after taking Jackson on a long walk, Trisha cleaned house, and has spent a good amount of the day over at her mom's house taking care of her.
But today was also a bittersweet day for us here at team R&T. You see, we've been sorta beginning to think about a replacement for Truck. Well after his walk with Jackson this morning, Rob went through the pile of mail on his desk and saw a very special financing offer from Ford on new trucks. He showed this to Trisha, and a plan was hatched to go look at a new truck, and to see if we qualified for this special offer.
So about eleven this morning, we loaded up in Truck for what was to be our last ride together, drove to the Ford place. Rob already knew the exact truck he wanted, and had already filled out the credit application online. We got there, introduced ourselves, and as they say, "The rest is history."
Now we loved Truck, and had just had major services done prior to the summer driving season. In 8 years of driving us everywhere, Truck had never left us stranded. But Truck had pulled the Pop-Ritchie, and Pod on many a camping trip. One being a six and a half week cross country 8,000 mile adventure, two trips to Goshen, IN, numerous trips to the mountains, beach, several trips to Kentucky, and well you get the picture. With plans we have for several long trips next summer, we felt it was a good time to shop for Truck's replacement.
We suspect that new TRUCK will also be the strong silent type, but will be a welcomed member of team R&T. In fact, the two trucks were parked side by side at the dealership as we moved our stuff from one to the other. We're just betting that Truck told TRUCK all about the adventures that lay in store, and that Truck was already looking forward to a new home with some nice people.
We'll leave you tonight with some pictures of Truck. Pictures of TRUCK will be following soon. Thanks for checking by and as always.....
Until next time, stay safe out there......-R,T&J. (And TRUCK)
