No pictures, yet . . . . but exciting news.  I received a call from Rodney Lomax yesterday.  My heart just about stopped when he announced who he was - the sales manager calling use????  I was sure the plant had burnt down and we weren't going to get our Oliver!

But, not to worry.  He called to say they had a build slot open up and wanted to know if we would like to take delivery the first part of December.  Of course, I said yes.  After requesting a Feb 3 delivery, because we were hesitant to travel cross country in the dead of Winter, I was getting nervous about making the trip in February.  The beginning of December we'll be less likely to run into Wintery weather; we might even be able to take the most direct route, on I-40.

Now I have to decide on our options and complete the order . . . . . 60 days cut off our wait time . . . . . yahoo!

That IS exciting news.  And now you are even two weeks closer.  While Mother Nature is sure to do things her own way, you are right that your chances of bad weather are less in early December.  Hopefully it works out that way for you guys,

Packing up . . . . leaving in 32 hours!

Fantastic for you guys.  What days are you going to be in the campground?  We are doping our tutorial on the 3rd and will be there December 3-4.  Decided to take 2 days at the campground to run through everything thoroughly.  Let us know if we'll overlap.  Could have a socially distanced adult beverage - or two.

Great  news! Somebody backed out of their contract, so you are getting a nearly completed hull specced to your options. There is no other way they could advance the date by eight weeks, since that is the current build time for an LE2. Great for you, not so much for the other guy. He was probably charged a 15% cancellation fee... somewhere around $10,000. Ask your sales rep to apply that “credit” to your purchase as mental anguish compensation for your having to alter your travel plans, or at least ask for a dozen doughnuts, the premium kind. 😬

I think your trip will be much safer and more enjoyable. You will see lots of Christmas lights. We will need lots of pictures!

December 3-4, we'll be in Missouri headed to Tennessee.  Will be at Oliver Monday, December 7;  Camping at David Crockett Monday/Tuesday nights.

Favorable weather is allowing us to take I-80 eastward.  We hope to return via I-40.  No set return schedule, but we would like to be home before Christmas.

Will look for you on the road.

My husband mentioned the lights . . . . . I'm anticipating an adventure of a lifetime. 

Leave tomorrow . . . . . taking I-80 route as Mother Nature has provided a window of good weather.  Staying mostly at hotels along the way, but have a couple of airbnb locations on the radar as we near Hohenwald.  Hoping for decent weather as we head home via I-40; campgrounds, KOA, Harvest Hosts for overnights.  Hope to do a bit of exploration, weather permitting;  maybe a return visit to Valley of Fire near Las Vegas if we need to wait out snow before crossing the Sierras (Reno to Susanville via Hwy 395 is the plan).

Will definitely be sharing pictures, here and on the FB group.

Ours will be ships passing in the night.  We'll be on the road already by the time you get to Oliver.  Will have to meet you some time down the line.  Hope everything goes really well for you guys and that you have a great trip.
