Okay I think we are almost there. We flew to Knoxville Tn yesterday and looked at the Big Horn we had found on the internet. We found it to be all that we had hoped for. We are adding a 2nd a/c in the bedroom, a lighting package and surge protector. We are scheduled for pickup on Sept. 25th. So unless the stock market crashes today or tomorrow, it should be a go.
We plan on leaving Tx on the 22nd and although we don't have a route yet, will arrive in Knoxville probably on the 24th and stay in a park close by. The day we pick up, we are to stay onsite for the night to be sure everything is working okay. The owner then puts us in a campground for two nights in Pigeon Forge. Hopefully all will work out fine and we can then take a few days to drive to Santa Rosa Beach, Fl for our arrival at Topsail on Oct 1st..
If anyone is looking for a Heartland RV, RV's For Less is definately a place to look. The owner is the best we have come across. He seems to have all the answers and actually told us he knows the units so well that he could build one from the ground up. I believe it! He will take all the time you need to sit and just ask away. We feel very comfortable with our purchase. He actually told us things about our new Dodge Ram that the dealership didnt tell us about. We can't wait to get back there and soak in all he has to teach us. We arrived back home last night about 7:30, tired but excited from a full day.
This morning we headed to Best Buy. My laptop has been acting up lately. Norton has been bothering me with all kinds of reminders for quite some time. Most recently it has been shutting down on me when I close a program, and the last few days I couldnt open an email or send one. Rick from the chatroom told me it sounded like a Norton thing because it kept saying Symantec has encountered a problem. So off to the Geek Squad we went. They ran a program to test it and also removed Norton for me. They assumed I had a virus and if I did it would cost $199 to fix. Yikes... We went to lunch and when we came back they said no virus detected. Yeah.. I asked what I owed and he said no charge.. I couldnt believe my ears.. So hats off to the Geek Squad. I am now home and all seems to be working okay. Can't imagine why Norton was causing all those problems. Will keep the fingers crossed.
Resting the remainder of the day. I am still exhausted from my 5 days of work. I start all over again tomorrow unless it rains.
