Waiting to Exhale (michael)

Waiting to Exhale We left our home in Tombstone for the last time... Just 20 miles from there seems like 2 hundred. We arrived at Western Horizons Resort St. David and was greeted by a friendly face at the front gate. A little paperwork and we were headed to our site. I am only 2 mins from parking and the rush goes through me. Wow, we built a home on wheels in 3 months. Will everything work? Well, leading up to this point our friendly neighborhood plumber changed our deal and said he would finish for $255.00 more. Well, spit on that. I don't know what is wrong with that town! Is it me? To me, a deal is a deal. How can one sleep at night when they say they will work for an agreed upon fee only to hold your dreams or life hostage. Well, again I say SPIT on THAT! It's like I can't breath. There it is, our moment of truth. A simple 40' long strip of gravel, a power plug, a hose bib, cable and sewer hole. It's only a standard RV site but to us, it is the moment of truth. It's shake down time. Mrs. Jones glided into the spot and I shut her down. Christi yells out the door, "I need more power captain!" I plug the ole girl in and hit the breaker. The electricity flowed through her veins and no breakers popped. I hooked up the water and the water flowed at our will. The cable came in loud and clear. We still have to get propane and a 3 inch spline to hook up the sewer. I'll do that tomorrow. That king size bed is gonna feel good. AAAAHhhhhhhhh!!!! Goodnight Bob (BOTN) All the Best, Michael & Christi P.S. Camera is still dead......Soon. See our other Blog;http://michaelhargisshow.blogspot.com/


  1. On my way to work so Time is short as I read my favorite Blogs "out there". Glad to see you made the move. What a whirlwind of details it took to get you into Mrs. Jones. Great Job holding it together, being optomistic and determined. There will always be "little things" to do now but you are now disconnected from the majority of the folks out there with new Horizons.

    I think back to the 1st morning I awoke in the Bluebird, cranking up the Generator ( In Rest stop ) brewing coffee, watching the sunrise, realizing that this was my new Home. I said Tom...You must be Crazy...Crazy Good. I wondered if I had made the right decision to follow my dreams. Well 20 years later...All is Good! It's not a perfect situation, but What's Perfect?

    Wishing you and Christy the Best of Times.
    Get your Camera fixed...Miss your awesome photo progression.

    Just a thought...If you can upload your photo progressions to a web site (like picasa) I would down load them, put them to your choice of a song you sing, & make you a Mrs. Jones Vid that you could share with Family & Friends...."All the Best" Tom & Carol

  2. Can't wait to follow along on your land cruising adventures. All the best to you from a boat family preparing to go (again) soon!

  3. Congratulations! It's been fun reading about your preparations and now the pay-off! Here's wishing you a wonderful maiden voyage!
