"Wait, you guys bought a WHAT?!"

After months of daydreaming and talking, we finally took the plunge. It was a three hour drive to Naples, and we missed all the Labor Day parties, but she is totally worth it!

Our vintage 1987 GMC is completely original inside, and the layout is perfect for us. The paint is a little weathered, but it just shows the many adventures she has been through. Can't wait until next summer when my husband and I set off cross country for three months toward the west coast! But until then, it will be lots of beach days and camping trips.

I am so excited to be a part of the SMB community, and can't wait to see where the road takes us!

That is crazy cool. I thought for a minute that picture was a Corona Beer advertisement. Congrats and welcome.

Thanks! And who knows? Our trip is taking us through Nevada next summer. Maybe we will see you out there! Looking forward to seeing other rigs on the road. Not many SMB's around here; just old people in Lincolns.

WOAH! Small world! Any areas local, or just around FL, that you suggest for a weekend trip?
