Another weird feeling

We previously blogged on what a weird feeling it was to spend a few nights in a hotel while our fifth wheel was being worked on. We are now experiencing another weird feeling since for the first time in 2 years and 2 months we are driving a car instead of our Ford F-350.

If you recall we dropped the fifth wheel onto the pickup a few months ago. Except for the sick feeling that we got when we did it and the damage to the truck bed we got off pretty easy. The damage to the fifth wheel was minor, a couple busted screws and some caulking was all that was needed. Our dealer must have felt sorry for us because they did not charge us for the repairs.

We were still able to drive the truck so we continued on our journey until we were going to be at a place long enough to get the truck repaired since it is a 2-3 week job. So yesterday we dropped off the truck and Enterprise Rent-a-Car picked us up. After riding so high in the truck we feel like we are in a go cart we are so low to the ground. It feels like we are falling when we get into our seats and we have to pull ourselves up just to get out. All kidding aside there is a safety issue with the car. We are so used to the gigantic mirrors on the truck and the visibility they provide that the tiny mirrors and visibility with the car will take some getting used to.

Bob has been under the weather the last few days so there are a few blog entries to catch up on so stay tuned. Bob will be blogging while Jo is driving around Goodyear in the rental car since she does not do much driving otherwise.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. I drove our son's car a couple of times this last summer and I know exactly what you mean. The hardest thing for me was getting up and out of it. Maybe you'll get lucky and they'll get the truck done early. Sure hope so.

  2. I get the same feeling everytime I switch from the motorhome to the toad.

  3. I know what you mean hope thay get it done early. Good luck...
