This half week has been a whirlwind of good decisions and bad decisions and highlighted my impulsiveness….that part of me I really try to control.
It all started last weekend when Kim told me that some mutual friends are selling their pickup and travel trailer because they are through camping. We have been talking about trading in our sweet little hybrid camper for a 5th wheel and this made all of my dreams come true.
To sweeten the deal, they are selling their f250 pickup set up with a 5th wheel hitch. He has been wanting to dump his Nissan Titan pickup since we bought it in 2011….especially after I ran it into a concrete flower planter a year ago.
So…..we took the Nissan to Carmax to see what they would give us for it. Much better than expected…great. Money for the new combo…this is when my impulsiveness kicked in. A nice Toyota Camry with low mileage and now we will sell the Juke.
Driving off the lot, I realized it was a mistake. Nice, nice car but now we had to sell the juke and I don’t want to sell the Juke! CArmax has a no questions asked 5 day return policy…so we got up yesterday morning and returned it. We had used equity from the truck and some extra money on the debit card which made the transaction extremely easy and we left Carmax very happy.
I keep looking at pictures of the trailer and imagining myself coming to visit you and you and you. I’m thinking it is going to be a great summer!
Until next time…..
