Good-bye SQ

She was big….

 

She was a big girl. Twenty-five feet long with bulging sides. Her awning powered out itself–all you had to do was push a button. She was fully equipped with a stove, refrigerator (with freezer), full bathroom, a bed that was always made up. She was cozy when stormy outside. She was reliable. Sometimes. She faithfully took us more than 35,000 miles across our beautiful country.

Our “glamper” the SQ, is waiting for someone to adopt her.

 

 

 

Glamping wasn’t our thing…

 

Yes, I’m talking about a vehicle. I’ve written about her on our multiple trips. Yup, I’m talking about the SQ–the name Jim dubbed her. We decided we were ready to say goodbye to her. There was just too many little nerve wracking things that cried for attention. After much conversation and prayer, we decided that “glamping” just wasn’t our thing and we sold our SQ. Today we signed the papers. I said to the acquisitions manager, “I’m kind of sad to sell.”

 

She matter-of-factly said, “You enjoyed it while you had it. Now you’re on to other adventures.”

 

We made other plans….

 

That’s just what I needed to hear. This isn’t death, it’s just something different. Another tomorrow. Another adventure. So we decided to celebrate. Yup. We drove next door to Calamity Jane’s and enjoyed a Country Burger, completely slathered in gently sautéed onions that practically fell off the plate. As we knifed and forked our way through the burger and ate the best crunchy fries we’d had in a long time, we made plans for our next adventure. It won’t be in the SQ, but it will be on the road. We’ll find a little cabin or B & B to stay in. We think the North Cascades would be enjoyable……what do you think?

 

Jim’s taking the SQ for her last drive. She’s on to other adventures, too.

 

We loved you….

 

It’s an end of an era. I’m a little relieved. A little sad, but as long as Jim’s by my side, I’m fine. Goodbye SQ, we loved you when we had you. Hope someone sees you and realizes you’re just the right vehicle for them.

In New York State. She won’t be our ride any longer, but we’ll be together.

 

 

What’s next? Stay tuned!

  1. SQ will be on the road again with new people to transport as she hums along the roadways of our beautiful USA!

  2. God bless you both as you adventure on. I understand the feeling. We have kept our camper and after 5 years or more of not using it, we are looking forward to parking her by Fort Peck Lake. Saying goodbyes to things that we love is always hard but it’s all about plan B. We love you and I’m sorry we didn’t get to meet SQ the times you tried. With my renewal of health Roy and I are enjoying life close to home and close to those we love so dearly. A cabin in the woods does sound good though. Enjoy this time and each other. Love you both, Carol

    • Thank you Carol. Who knows—Montana’s not that far away. Love you Cuz.

  3. Many more adventures to go…

  4. Often think of our small motorhome and where it has taken its new owner. We had such fun with it for 15 years.

    • Thanks Marilyn! We have the memories–nothing better!

  5. On cold mornings I’m betting a charming B&B or quaint hotel will be lovely.
    Loved your stories from the road but your cruise updates have also been good. I’m betting the new adventures will be MORE than satisfactory.
