GETTING NEW TRUCK READY TO HEAD SOUTH IN 2013
About our new truck. As most of you know that followed our Arizona Trip 2012 we have a pretty big horse trailer. 40' long with a 16' living area and a 12' slide-out. Ron would limit what I could put into the trailer as we were at maximum weight. So we sold the Dodge that I loved and I could drive LOL and bought a Western Star Semi. Here is a picture of what it looked like when we got it.

|Here is a picture the first time we hooked up the trailer. See the new deck and see only one axle now. |
The smart car will fit right behind the truck.
I don't think I will have to worry about weight anymore. I can feel a new set of pots and pans in my future and yes some cast iron fry pans LOL.
Ron welding the new water tanks these will go right under the new air-ride hitch we had built shown below. It can hold 250 gallons of water.
We hope to leave on January 30th 2013. Ron is retiring from the Vancouver Fire Department after serving 28 years on the 29th of January. I am taking all my holidays then 2 months leave to go south. Once home I will only work 8 more weeks before I too can retire.
This is going to be a great year. Make sure you follow our trips we should have more then normal now that we are retiring.
