The day is here. Today we got our Barth. And being near the Ugly Betty RV Resort and Pet Emporium (UBRVRAPE) just had to drive from Atlanta to Appling, GA to ask Nick to educate us on what we bought! And we got a bonus: As we speak I'm sitting in Rusty's spot at the counter in Nick & Donna's kitchen, (well-fed, I might add), with the Barth sitting just outside Nick's workshop where The Captain usually parks. Life is good.

We also found out this coach won't start unless you put your foot on the accelerator.

Pictures to come.

Lou

Lou and Barb,

We're really happy for you. It's great that you were able to stop by Nick's and get a primer.

Great - have a safe trip! Stick around UBRVRAPE a day or two if you can, to get acclimated before heading off to TN. If you have a problem enroute, it's better to have one on a weekday when services are easier to get.

Here is proof that at-least Lou & Barb were at UBRVRAPE with someone's Barth.

Hey, I got the month, date, and time correct. That's 3 out of 4, 75% correct. Ain't that a passing score.

Imagine arriving at a campground at 11:30pm with generator running, office closed, fogged-up windows due to the high humidity, trying to read a map left for you by the office lady who wrote over some of the "street" names, making several wrong turns and having to watch yer wife in the backup camera waving a flashlight around like you're about to run somebody over, finally finding your spot and having your newest neighbor reminding you how loud that generator is, and (all this after)having driven your new Barth motorhome 530.0 miles in 12 hours.

[All of this is fun when you're 30 years old, but what the heck is a 72 year old (as of about 90 minutes ago) newbie (talk about a contradiction in terms) doing this time of night behind the wheel of a 33' rig he only took possession of on Friday going up and down the lanes never having done so in any campground ever? ("Man. There's a lot of metal around here!")]

We made it to Louisville, KY from Nick & Donna's in one swell foop.

As others have stated on this post, Nick is The Man. Here he and I are putting our heads together trying to figure out why the fresh water tank won't load.



What a help. Thanks, Nick! Now I can spend the rest of my BD sleeping and then traveling the other half of this journey.

When I get rid of this glaze in my brain I'll post more pictures. In the meantime, I have to say it is great to now be in the ranks, and Barb and I look forward to seeing again those of you we've met before, and meeting those of you we haven't. On the road, of course!

Lou you should be sleeping. 90 minutes ago confusion it's your Birthday!!! Happy Birthday!! Speaking of sleeping it looks like you and Nick are in the first picture. Before I read the caption I was thinking strange spot for a nap? ROTFLMAO
Glad your down for the night and found your spot. All the instructions in the world don't prepare for the the quirks life throws our way.
I'm up because the breaker kicked on my houses air conditioner so I was out in the pouring rain checking the compressor before starting back up. 84 in the house to hot for me to sleep. Sleeping
All is working now so I'm headin to bed. Good Luck tomorrow and do more pictures. I should talk. I took zero of DBarth at the lake.
