Left bright and early Friday morning. Got my coffee, the car filled with gas and on the road. I got to Canmore when the phone rang. Oh yeah, the other couple decided not to take the coach. The phone call is from the sales rep. They had sent the motorhome over to Freightliner on Thursday to get it checked out. Friday morning, it is still there. Apart and in pieces. They have discovered that it needs rotors and one brake line. I can come out and see it, but not drive it. The salesman and I decide that we will wait for parts. We will check next week to see when the parts will be in.

I emailed the ad for the motorhome to Sue and had her have a look. At the price that they are aking, Sue's question was "what's wrong with it?" I told Sue that I was thinking of contacting our friends in Sorento to see if he would go have a look.

The salesman from the dealership called and told me more about the motorhome. It is a 1996 Safari Sahara 35 1/2 ft. It has about 70,034 kms on it. But, another couple form Kamloops is looking at it and has a deposit down until they can see it. Rawlin, the sales rep, has sent me 36 pictures of the rig. I then forwarded the pictures to Sue. Her comment was "Maybe you need to ge see it for yourself.

Many emails latter, with alot more information, a good report from Keith and Lee, I am off to BC for the weekend. It is one way to crash Lee's birthday - Hi, I'm here, got a bed?

We left Blythe on Easter Sunday. Travelling by car sure makes travelling quicker. We arrived home safe and sound April 14. This was earlier than we had planned/expected and we caught our neighbours off guard. Bob was going to fill our water tank on Wednesday, but we arrived on Tuesday.

We had a nice couple of weeks at home before Sue went back to work on May 1. She immediately ran the driving school for the Car Club that weekend.

I starting looking around again at used motorhomes. Not really planning anything, but I need to see what was out there. After all, we had really like the Safari the Bruce and Michele had sold in Blythe. I did find an ad for one on Kijiji for a 1997 40 ft Safari Continental. I requested some pictures and received about 25 via email. The said that I could come look at the unit any time after the long weekend in May as they were going camping in it. I sent another email requesting some additional information, but never heard back.

Continued to look for Safari's, but was not able to find anything that said "Hey, What about me!". I then decided I would see if I could find any Allegro Bus's similar to our friends in California. Well, I found one in BC. And they also have a Safari Sahara. I chat on the computer with the "dealer" and I am told that a sales rep will call. We will see.
