|Going over the bridge -- Glorious Sky|
When we arrived at the seller's place, he and his friends were waiting for us. We all introduced ourselves and both Joe and I had a good feeling about these guys. They just seemed very down to earth and decent folks. Within a few minutes, the caravan was on the way to the old farm house. We led the way, followed by the guy in the minivan pulling the purchased camper, followed by the seller and his friend in the little Honda. When we turned on the radio in the Amigo we were treated to the Beatles' "Let It Be," and I decided that was a really good omen. First stop was the gas station to put air in the camper's tires....they were pretty flat.

With tires filled, we proceeded to the old farm house. The day was glorious and the two rivers we had to cross were quite beautiful, with the sun's rays glimmering off the water's ripples. I took pictures of the day as we drove, and took pictures of the camper behind us, in the side view mirror. We collected quite a little caravan behind us, so, when we had to opportunity, we pulled into another gas station, to let the other cars by.

Once back at the old farmhouse, Joe directed the parking of the camper in an out of the way place, where it will undergo its repairs and transformation into its next life. And then, for the next two hours, we chatted with the three men, one 46, one 36 and one 28 years old, all in need of work, and all possessing skills we could use. We showed them the projects on which we were seeking bids -- both small projects and huge projects. They promised to get back with us with bids.
