AUG. 22, ’14 ARKANSAS TRAVELS & EATING AT THE PIG & WHISTLE!!

AUG. 22, ‘14
HELLO FROM BEAUTIFUL HOT & DRY BRANSON, MO. USA!!! I GUESS THIS IS AUG. & WE ARE SUPPOSE TO BE HOT– & WE ARE!!!    🙂
WELL- YESTERDAY GARY & I DECIDED TO HEAD OUT & LOOK AT A CLASS “B” MOTOR HOME! SINCE WE HAD A NEW ROOF PUT  ON OUR CLASS “C” MOTOR HOME WE HAVE NOW– THE CHEMICALS FROM THE  NEW ROOF – WE HAD TO HAVE PUT ON IT–I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO GO NEAR THE MOTOR HOME –WE NOW HAVE-BECAUSE OF THE TOXIC CHEMICAL SMELL FROM THE NEW ROOF. OH THE JOYS OF MCS!!!!!!!  🙂
SO WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING ON THE INTERNET FOR CLASS “B” MOTOR HOMES– THAT ARE MORE THE SIZE OF A VAN- PLUS A BATHROOM & BED & REF. & STOVE- ETC- ETC–& CAN BE PARKED ANY PLACE & NOT HAVE TO HAVE A TOW CAR BEHIND YA– TO BE ABLE TO LOOK AROUND WHEN YOU TRAVEL, ETC.
SO WE ARE NOT SURE IF A CLASS “B” IS WHAT WE WANT OR NOT– OR IF WE WILL EVER BE ABLE TO GET RID OF THE TOXIC CHEMICAL SMELLS IN THE CLASS “C” WE HAVE NOW- OR WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO–
BUT YESTERDAY WE GOT UP AT 5:00 AM– (I KNOW I HAD FORGOTTEN THERE WAS A 5:00AM– SINCE RETIREMENT!!!)     🙂
AND WE HEADED OUT  INTO THE HILLS & HOLLARS OF ARKANSAS TO LOOK AT A CLASS “B”– WE FOUND ON THE INTERNET!!

WE ASKED ALL THE QUESTIONS & LOOKED AT ALL THE PICTURES OF  THE MOTOR HOME ON THE INTERNET & THEY SAID “PERFECT CONDITION“- ETC. ETC.!!!

SO WE HEAD OUT TO ARK. WITH A PACKED PICNIC LUNCH JUST IN-CASE THERE IS NO PLACE TO EAT– ETC.!

TALKED TO OUR INSURANCE AGENT BEFORE WE LEFT SO IF WE BOUGHT WE WOULD BE INSURED ON THE WAY HOME– MOVED MONEY FROM SAVINGS INTO CHECKING & PRINTED OUT A “BILL OF SALE” &  WE WERE ALL SET TO BUY –IF WE LIKED IT!!
SO WE DROVE SOUTH & THEN BACK EAST  INTO ARK TO A TOWN CALLED HARDY, ARK. WHERE WE MET THE FOLKS WHO OWNED  THE RV. AND THEN WE FOLLOWED THEM  FOR A DISTANCE & THEN ONTO A GRAVEL ROAD– WE HAVE NOT DRIVEN ON A GRAVEL ROAD IN YEARS– BUT THIS WAS SIX MILES OF BAD GRAVEL BACK INTO HELL & GONE!!
WE GOT TO THE RV & THEIR “PERFECT CONDITION” & OURS WERE NOT AT ALL THE SAME-  THE GENERATOR DIDN’T WORK &  THE REF. WAS NOT WORKING & THERE WAS A ROCK BREAK IN THE WINDSHIELD– & I COULD LIST ABOUT 145 OTHER THINGS WE DIDN’T LIKE OR WERE NOT WORKING-

SO WE SAID THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR SHOWING IT TO US–AND HEADED BACK HOME. IT TOOK US 27 MINUTES TO BACK TRACK ON THAT SIX MILES OF BAD GRAVEL ROAD BACK TO A HWY!!

WE STOPPED IN THE TOWN OF HARDY, ARK. & IT IS A LITTLE TOWN FULL OF ANTIQUE SHOPS & WE DECIDED TO EAT AT THE “PIG & WHISTLE“– EXCELLENT CHOICE– SO IF YOU ARE EVER AT HARDY, ARK. WE TOTALLY RECOMMEND THE BEER BATTERED FISH & CHIPS SERVED ON NEWSPAPER & THE MUSHY PEAS!!

FISH & CHIPS SERVED ON NEWS PRINT WITH  “MUSHY PEAS”!!
WE THOUGHT ABOUT GOING BACK HOME BY WAY OF MAMMOUTH SPRING AS WE LOVE THAT AREA OF ARK. AND LOVE MAMOUTH SPRING–

BUT WE WERE BOTH TIRED & DECIDED TO GO BACK HOME THE WAY WE CAME– THROUGH MOUNTAIN HOME & YELLVILLE & HARRISON, ARK. THAT IS ALSO A PRETTY DRIVE.
SO WE HAD A NICE DAY TRIP &  BEAUTIFUL VIEWS & FUN DAY & VERY GOOD LUNCH–

BUT NO MOTOR HOME CAME HOME WITH US!! SO WE ARE STILL LOOKING & DON’T KNOW IF WE WILL BE ABLE TO GET RID OF THE CHEMICAL SMELLS IN THE ONE WE HAVE THAT I WILL EVER BE ABLE TO USE IT AGAIN– OR IF WE WANT A SMALLER CLASS “B” & SELL THE ONE WE HAVE– BUT WE ARE STILL LOOKING & GARY IS WORKING ON GETTING ALL OF OUR STUFF OUT OF THE ONE WE HAVE –IN-CASE WE DO WANT TO SELL IT!!
WE THINK IF WE HAD A SMALL CLASS “B” RV WE WOULD USE IT MORE & NOT HAVE TO TAKE A TOW CAR WITH US WHEN WE TRAVEL– TO BE ABLE TO LOOK AROUND. SO WE ARE STILL LOOKING AT   THE DIFFERENT STYLES OF  CLASS “B”S & STILL DECIDING!!

IF WE WON THE LOTTERY & MONEY WAS NOT A PROBLEM– I AM SURE WE COULD FIND SOMETHING WE LIKED!! BUT SINCE WE DON’T BUY ANYTHING UNLESS WE HAVE THE MONEY– FINDING USED IN A GOOD CONDITION WITH NO CHEMICALS SMELLS & PERFUME & SCENTS IS THE PROBLEM.
AS GARY BRINGS MORE & MORE OF OUR “STUFF” OUT OF OUR RV WE HAVE I WONDER HOW ON EARTH I GOT ALL THAT STUFF IN ONE MOTOR HOME!!!   🙂
AND BECAUSE OF THE TOXIC CHEMICAL SMELLS  OF THE RV- GARY IS HAVING TO DO ALL THE WORK OF LOADING UP WHAT IS IN IT & THE CLEANING!
THE TEMPS HAVE BEEN TOO HOT EVEN FOR OUR DAILY GOLF CART RIDE DOWN TO THE LAKE– AS WHEN THE TEMP IS 100 & FEELS HOTTER IT IS TIME TO STAY INSIDE IN THE AC & I KNOW I AM A WHIMP BUT I DON‘T TAKE THE HEAT ANYMORE.
STAY COOL– WE ARE PRAYING FOR RAIN & COOLER TEMPS HERE IN BEAUTIFUL BRANSON, MO USA!!!!

About sondasmcschatter

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!
