It’s Who You Know…

…and perhaps even more so in a small town.  And we know Jimmy, or Jim, as everyone else calls him.  Jim and my brother worked together, so Jim has been here for decades.

One of the deals with a trailer is you need a place to store it.  It seems like no big deal, but it was a big deal and a cause for stress because we did not have a place to store her up here because everyone was full!  So it looked like Bishop was going to be her home.  Not exactly convenient, and I wasn’t thrilled about her sitting outside in 100 degree heat.

Jimmy to the rescue!  He happens to be friends with the couple that owns Mammoth RV Park.  Even though their storage was full, they have a few spaces they reserve for family and friends (at a super inexpensive rate!)

Stress relieved, problem solved!  Now comes the good part.  Jimmy also knows a couple that has two hangars at the airport, and he thought maybe they were looking for a tenant.

He passed along their phone number, we did a meet and greet at our Airstream.  The next thing I knew we were at their hangar striking the deal.  And as you would expect in a small town, all on a handshake!  The icing on top of the cake, the couple that owns the hangar are super nice, so now we have one more connection in town.

Her first home.  Happy to have a spot, but concerned about lack of security, squirrels crawling up underneath and fornicating, high altitude UV rays punishing her beautiful body, pine sap and pollen, birds shitting all over her, and spiders nesting inside her.

Her new home.  Can you see the difference?

Nice.

  1. Seems like you guys are living a “charmed life” these days!! So happy for you. Good things happen to good people.

  2. Sigh, what a relief! She looks cozy with her new friends & nice view too. I was wondering where she was gonna live while you kids were hanging at the condo. Did you name her yet?
