John, my eldest son and his wife Lisa, recently went on a cruise. Before they left, they treated their three daughters and their dates to a Braves game, and as you can see they enjoyed the day. They are an amazing family.
All three girls went with them on their 25th Wedding Anniversary and they had a blast together. The rest of us, in the family, call them the "Father Knows Best Family". They are so happy all the time and love being together; I'm so proud of Lisa and John for raising their girls as they have.

|This is the 25th Wedding Anniversary Trip. I can't wait to see pictures of the cruise John and Lisa returned from, yesterday.|
I would buy a new unit. I know there's no insurance that things can't go wrong, but I think I have a better shot at least for a few years with new rather than used. I'm leaning toward the VIA 25Q maybe towing a Jeep Liberty, but haven't discounted the View or Born Free. Our second motorhome was a Winnebago Chieftain. We loved that coach, but we should have gotten a diesel. The third was a diesel, but I hated the lack of inside storage space compared to the Chieftain. My needs are different, now, but I'm convinced that I want a diesel.
I could buy it, now, but I'd rather not go into savings that don't get replaced once on a fixed income because I want to remain independent. Well, we'll see. If you got this far in my dream, thanks for reading. If you have any view points or experience with the VIA, the View, or the Born Free, I'd love to hear them.
This whole idea was scrapped within days. Just not worth the investment at my age, and I'm grappling with the reality that my back will never be the same. I will still manage, somehow, to get to Tennessee in the fall, but after that I think maybe it will be time to sell the truck and trailer. I'll have to be content that I had the opportunities to go west, and enjoy all the memories of those trips.
