So busy from mid August thru September… time to blog!

Although we did not write much ~ we had a very eventful August & September.  After the wedding, we headed to Lilburn GA & the Stone Mountain RV campground.  We were wildly busy actually.  We had an appointment at National Indoor RV center to test drive an Entegra Anthem and we ended up test driving a Cornerstone – the 600 horsepower model – and buying a beautiful 2016 Entegra Cornerstone 45 B on the lot. It is  equipped with the full shower bath & 1/2 bath which was a key point after the higher horsepower. The interior lights,audio & shades operate off the Vega system on a dedicated iPad – which is very cool & convienent.  It has beautiful interior with medium dark cabinets and a light beige leather L shaped couch. The kitchen & bath counters are a light granite that complements the wood nicely. And there is a tile floor throughout with just a small amount of carpet in the dinning area!  My allegeries will be positively affected. We stayed around the area for 10 days to make sure everything worked right and to get me driving lessons!!  I now drive the coach half the time and have over 400 miles under my belt already. We hired a trainer who was very good and made some good suggestions. He taught me how to back up,parallel park and negotiate turns in traffic properly. The more practice I have the more confident I get but I actually enjoy it more than I though I would. 😎

We also plan to change our towed vehicle and have an all while hard top Jeep Sahara on order for delivery mid October. We decided that would be a better vehicle for our travels West and to Alaska in 2017-2018. Also it will match the new coach better than the CRV and be able to be towed at speeds over 70 mph unlike our current tow.  Here are a few interior photos:

Living space is great and we can seat up to 8 people as needed. The bathroom has a convenient double sink and well proportioned shower. The driver & passenger seat turn around 180 so the can be used in the salon area. Great lighting & darkening shades – a tempurpedic matteress – all make sleeping onboard a joy.

Although we had not intended to make this purchase we believe it was a good decision and will offer many years of comfortable safe traveling.
