About half a dozen hummingbirds are battling for food throughout the day right above our heads. Here are a few photo's....

We made it

We arrived in PA two days ago and are so glad to have finally made it. We'll be working here through the summer and will continue posting blogs and lots of pictures each week. The RV wasn't able to make the trip unfortunately so we're saving money to have it repaired at the end of the summer. Our RV adventure is probably over but new adventures are just beginning! Stay tuned!!!

Sweet relief!!!

We sold the RV! Well, almost. After posting it on ebay a second time and lowering the price again we got several emails and sold it this afternoon. It should all be finalized on Thursday. Its exciting that we're done with the RV yet sad to let the fulltiming dream go. But we need to move on and figure things out. Heading to PA is still a top priority and we'll probably take Amtrak out next Monday if all goes according to plan.

UPDATE: The buyer pulled out of the sale so we're having the mechanic diagnose the problem and go from there. Figures.

We came back to Loveland after having Chevy look into why the RV was running on the hotter side. They did a pressure test and found an air pocket in the coolant lines but it didn't fix the issue. The RV is running fine around town but warmer on the highways. It could be as simple as the radiator needing cleaning or not. We posted it on ebay for $20,000 with no reserve for 5 days to see if anyone is interested. Now we're just waiting. If we don't get any interest we'll post in for 21 days and then head to PA.

Attempt # ??????

Josh and I are going to give driving to Pennsylvania another try today. No luck trading the RV in for a truck and trailer, the dealer would only offer us $10,000! which was an insult and josh told them so. Needless to say we haven't heard back from them. We've had a lot of interest in the veggie oil aspect of the RV and have had a great time showing people how it works and taking them to get oil from restaurants. When people have seen how easy it is, and FREE!, they've started seriously talking about getting conversions done for themselves! I just think it's the coolest thing when you talk to someone who never even knew a diesel could run on plant oils and then next day they're totally into it. Our route to PA will take us thru Nebraska on HWY 80 (we're only taking the highways from now on), into iowa, thru chicago area, cleveland OH, and then onto Tidioute, PA. We'll be working at for the summer. It's a great place in the middle of the beautiful Allegheny National Forest and would love to hang out with some fellow RVers. I believe there is an RV park in the next town over and lots of tent camping. Give us a shout!

Another Update....

Yes, we're still in Loveland, CO and currently looking to trade the RV in on a new dodge ram 2500. We should know sometime today whether or not it's a deal that the dealership can work or not. When we're not playing Mario Kart Josh and I are planning out different business ideas. As soon as we know what's going on we'll post.
