Morning visit

A morning call alerted me to the fact the Roger and Donna and Harley and Annis were on their way to the Don-West Flea Market and would be making the normal refueling stop at Cracker Barrel. Never missing a chance to eat at Cracker Barrel I met them there for breakfast. Very good time with old friends.

Yesterday I showed the start of the house move out of the park and here is the whole story.

The truck and their equipment arrived about 8:30.


First they slid I-beams in place on either side of the house.


After securing cross beams the wheels ware pushed into place. 

and secured


Then the front end was jacked up


and chained to the tow truck.



Then chains were used along the length of the RV to secures it to the I-beams.

Ready to roll at noon.

The convoy assembles.

And here we go.
  
The end.

Today we finally have some sun ant the temperature has reached 62 degrees, this makes a good start in enjoying the good life.

  1. Great timing on your part to make it to the Cracker Barrel at just the right time! Now that they have moved that house out of the park, does that mean there is an empty spot for rent there?

    1. The is an empty spot, but it needs some work before it is rentable. Easy to be on time getting to Cracker Barrel and there is no penalty for being early.

    1. From what I've observed, it's a lot more involved after they've sat for about 15 years.

  3. Bet you could have bought it cheap. Imagine what the cost was to move it, problably more than it was worth.

    1. Actually it was donated to a mission and the mover is a member of the congregation. I was told it was being moved for $600, but then the unit might not be worth $600.

  6. Love, love, love the catfish at Cracker Barrel. Terry doesn't eat the catfish but fills up on dumplings there. It's a mighty great place. Wish they had some of these in Washington too but we've been told labor costs are too high there. Bummer!

    1. If you leave a Cracker Barrel hungry it's your own fault.
