Our Opulent Lifestyle Ends

Millennium Coach has a brand spanking new, right out the box, 2013 Prevost (pronounced Pray-vohs) motorcoach on display at Hearthside. It’s a beautiful coach, that’s for sure, but we’d still prefer a Newmar, Tiffin, or Winnebago. That thing is way over the top and guess what?  It broke down on the way north and was two days late getting to Hearthside. Wow, we know how much it costs to repair our rig; wonder how much it costs to fix that buggy?  It now appears that we have a couple things in common with the Prevost owners – the sewer hose and dealing with breakdowns along the highway.  Oh, by the way, this is one of the cheaper models; only 1.9 million.

“They” brought the coach from Florida to Hearthside for a photo-op.  Both Millennium and Hearthside will be using the photos for promotional purposes in brochures, magazines, and other advertising.  As you can see, both the “motorhome” and the “campground” are in a budget league that is by far greater than our income level supports. 

Well, we’re “fixinto” leave our opulent lifestyle behind and move back into the real world.  After spending two months here, we have some real good ideas for the owners of the Friendly Faber Family Campground.  I wonder how long we’ll have to wait for Ray and Pat to implement the changes?  They may have to cut down some trees in order to build our Pergola.  And we’re looking forward to that nicely landscaped patio right outside our front door.  How about a waterfall, Ray?  Hang onto your hats, you guys, we’re on our way with lots of great ideas.

It’s time to start packing our bags, to hitch up the wagon, and to mosey on down the trail so . . .

May God Bless  - - - - - - - -


  1. Being around the kids is far more opulent than living among the over the toppers. If I had a Prevost, I would be embarrassed to have 'jelly' in the galley. I wonder how many of the neighbors up there are retired auto workers. Travel safe.

  2. Wow! I'm afraid that coach will only be in our dreams!
