Week 701 - We are Blessed! - 01-19-2020
We are Blessed!
For those who read weekly, you know our house is for sale. We are blessed. No, we have not sold the house yet, but that will come soon.
When we first bought the MotherShip we thought it would be fun to see some of the USA. We had no idea that we were full time travelers and would never stay in our house again. But that is what happened.
We traveled 14 years and 127,765 miles visiting all the states and 5 Canadian provinces . . .

But, this week we checked off another bucket list item. We joined the Mileage High Club!
Now, we know what you're thinking. We really shouldn't be sharing this. But, we can't help to think this is great: Being rewarded for just doing something we enjoy.
We were so good, we actually got a medal for doing it. It is not something that many people in a motorhome do, so we are blessed.
Cummins issues medallions for each 100,000 miles you complete. We're at 127,765 miles and while we doubt we'll make 200,000 it will be fun trying.
Okay, gotta go and show the house to another potential buyer.
We are blessed, love Pete, Ellen and Mandy
