Today we left Des Moines at 8 to head to Sioux City to pick up a 2001 Ford Excursion (our tow vehicle) and an RV in Sioux Falls, SD. Things worked out with the Excursion, but not with the RV. 🙁
The Excursion is definitely a change of pace for us, and it needs some work; that made for an interesting ride home. The craziest part was when we were filling up the tank in the Excursion and as it neared the top diesel started spilling everywhere. I guess there is a hole in the fuel hose. I will add that to the list. . .
For the record, we have been driving a 2001 Mazda MPV for about the past 10 years. The replacement vehicle we purchased is from the same year and actually has even more miles on it.
We made it home around 10, tired and worn out from a long day. The Reagens are out of town so all of the kids slept in the same room as us. As we were going to bed Rose said, “Goodnight, Elliot. I love you.” That was definitely the highlight of the day.
