All Things Nuwa!

On Nov. 23, 2022 we purchased a Nuwa (pronounced “New Way” as in “New Way of Camping” coined circa 1965**) Hitchhiker Premier 5th wheel to replace the very tired and worn out Hurricane class A in which we’ve been living for the last 5 years. Myrtle – which is what we will be calling our new home – may only be 1 year newer but the quality of the unit is WAY higher than the Hurricane! It’s a much more high-end unit from a quality manufacturer, and it shows! As time goes on I will be updating this page, first to share our first day with her, and then as we* make little changes and add our furniture and the various little touches those will also be here. I hope you will share in our excitement as we move into Myrtle and get this party started!

*We, in this case, means our lovely helpers who come weekly (or more, if needed!) to do and help us do all sorts of things, in addition to Pete and, to a much lesser extent, me. J&E will be doing a whole lot of the work as we prepare Myrtle for occupancy, and move in.

Nov. 25, 2022 – A Thorough Cleaning

We have a young couple that comes here every week to help us with the heavy lifting and cleaning and all sorts of things; there isn’t much they can’t do from felling dead trees and cutting them into firewood to hanging Pete’s antennas to moving things or organizing everything from cupboards to sheds, besides the basics. They are an enormous help to us in so many ways…anyway today they gave Myrtle a thorough cleaning, and this is the walk-through Pete and I did after they left.

Nov. 25, 2022 – So Why Myrtle???

Pete actually chose the name. He wanted it to be a female name since Junior is a male title, and he knew the story…

When Casey was little and I was a single mom working 2 jobs, on those evenings when I was home I had some down time after she went to bed. So when she’d get up for something, and start to talk to me – “Mom…?” – I’d tell her, “I’m off duty right now, I’m not Mom, I’m Myrtle.” To hear my little girl call me Myrtle in her sweet little voice always melted me! Those were precious times and precious memories, and I hope that we will have the same (albeit they can’t be quite as precious as those times with my baby girl!) living in Myrtle.

Nov. 23, 2022 – Myrtle Comes Home

The following photos are in chronological order, from the time we left the seller’s home downstate until just before dusk. After we came back from supper it was sure strange to see this monster sitting in our yard as we drove into the driveway!

Today is the day we finally bought our new-to-us RV! We’ve lived in motorhomes for over 7 years but needed something bigger and with more storage and a better layout to replace our current tired and worn out abode. After a year of searching, we were finally blessed with THIS!
