Just a few days after hurricane Fay (all we had was moderate rain and winds), along came hurricane Gustav. For a while, the initial track projections had it headed straight for us, but it came ashore in south Texas, and our weather here was not even affected.
Our realtor called us and said that a young family had made an offer on the house, and after a day of back and forth negotiations they had a contract to buy it. Closing was a couple of weeks ago, and we are now homeless (in the traditional sense).
For the past three months we have been living in a 24 foot class C motor home. To say that our living quarters were a bit cramped is a tremendous understatement, so while we were home for the house closing we found a new motor home that we really liked. After some negotiations we are now living in a 38 foot Winnebago Adventurer.
