Day 175 - Water Toys

Saturday, May 23, 2015

As if we didn't need any more things to do in advance of our vacation, we drove down to Sacramento and bought a boat!



It had been pending for a number of weeks, and when the Sale Pending notice went away, Steve called right away. The boat was available again, and we snatched it up! The price was great, and there were a number of other parties that were also interested, but we got there first and our offer was accepted. We will pick it up in a couple weeks after we get back from Kentucky. It's a 2001 Crownline 180 Bowrider, and we took it out on Folsom Lake today to try it out. It rides great and has a lot of pep. We won't be using it for anything but cruising around the lake, but it will still be great fun!

We leave before breakfast tomorrow morning to make the drive across country. We are planning on stopping for the night in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The van is loaded to the hilt, but that seems to be the way we roll. My blogs will be short and sweet the next couple days, but will try to keep posting every day. Don't want to stop now!

Have a great Sunday, friends!
