376  Main Forum / General Discussion / Picking up our 2552 on Wednesday on: April 27, 2013, 07:56:15 am
Woo Hoo - we are so excited! We'll drive out to Elkhart on Tuesday and will probably be sitting on their doorstep like homeless waifs when they get there in the morning on Wednesday. We're booked into the Shipshewana campground for two nights for system testing and any tweaking it may need then off we go for a casual meander back to Maryland. Our nanny cat stays home this one last time then she'll go where we go. She took her first "walk" in her harness and leash yesterday. That's going to take some time but at least we were able to pull it off with minimal blood loss and stress. We made it all the way from the front door, around the house and in the back door. Baby steps - the only way to go.

Well, soon we'll be asking all those newbie questions and, hopefully, somewhere down the line, we'll stop being newbies and will know enough to answer a few on our own.

EEEEEEEEEEEEE - so excited. (This is Holly typing - John would never squeal like a girl).

I was also about to suggest the factory. My 2004 Prius had THREE PAGES of translations for the beeping, blinking and glowing warnings (they cut back starting in 2005, thank goodness.) The guys at the factory probably moved your vehicle at least 8 times since it got to their lot. I imagine they would have checked out the beep to make sure it wasn't complaining about something they did wrong.

I sent an email question to Amanda at the office and received a reply from Karen stating that Amanda is no longer there and questions can be sent to Karen or Kermit.

McFadan Clan,

That's excellent! We look forward to meeting the west coast cruisers also. Bring your woolies, just in case. I don't think Northern California gets as nippy as Northern Michigan might.

For those experienced reunion people out there, how many PC owners usually attend? I'm terrible with names so if I may have to take notes... and track aliases for those with different screen names. I'll be so confused.

There is TOO a "Good Fairy". There was a picture of her on the 40th birthday card my sweetie gave me. The card said

"Every year on your birthday the good fairy taps you on the head with her wand and makes you one year older... (open the card)... OH MY GOODNESS - she must have beaten the @%$& out of you"

- Isn't he just too sweet? It took me a long time to cure him of that gaggy romantic stuff. Sometimes I wonder If I cured him a little too well.

Tom, no worries on the shopping with me. I HATE shopping, UNLESS it is on Amazon or for the granddaughter. Now, browsing a cool store... I'm good with that. Plus I expect I'll be cured of any packrat tendencies by the time we empty this house out and hit the road. And we won't have a house to ship stuff home to. If we buy it, we better plan to haul it around the country in the PC for a year.

Sue, that looks perfect - We might have to hit it going and coming back.
Thank you!

Does anyone have recommendations for the journey to the Petoskey reunion? We expect to be in far eastern Maryland (almost DE/NJ) for Labor Day weekend. Current plan is to roll west to drop the granddaughter off in Frederick, MD; overnight near Deep Creek, MD on Monday; overnight in family's driveway in Cleveland, OH on Tuesday; overnight ???? midway up Michigan on Wednesday; then on to the reunion for check in on Thursday. It is only 6 1/2 hours from Cleveland to Petoskey according to Google Maps but in the interest of leisurely RV living, we'd prefer to split that trip somewhere in Michigan. Does anyone have recommendations for something midway between Cleveland and Petoskey?

After getting ALL our dates on the calendar I realized that the Friday of Labor Day weekend, August 30th, is our jumping off date. Our plan is to hit the road for a year so the reunion will be our first "long" trip of our year away. Yee HA! About 4 more weeks until we get the PC then 4 months after that for the trip. With so much to do in so little time, it should go by quickly but it does seem to drag.

We hope to meet many of you at the reunion.

I forgot - they told us that Phoenix covers your first year dues and the paperwork is in the glove box when you pick up your PC.

For Intervec Phoenix Club Info go to main forum page, Links and Contacts (near bottom) then subject - Phoenix Cruiser' s Owners Club. They put on the reunion. I emailed for info and they were very responsive.

We plan to sign up once the PC is actually in our possession (3 or 4 more weeks of waiting). I can't speak on fall weather but we were there in June two years back and a mini tornado type storm hit us while were on Mackinac Island. We were so very glad we were getting pelted with wind blown rain at the fort and not sitting on the ferry. There were downed trees and police blockades when we got back to the mainland. Yee HA! How boring vacations would be without a little pick me up now and then from Mother Nature.

We hope the weather is moderate enough to slide up to the Upper Peninsula after the reunion. We were there for two short days in June and it was beautiful. We'd like more time to explore and enjoy.

And last, but not least, we also are looking forward to meeting more PC owners and hopefully putting faces with some of the names on this forum.

Ron, I tried to not respond, but couldn't help myself. There is an old saying that "just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get me" - Well, the same goes for crazy. Just because you got that one right, doesn't mean you aren't crazy. Personally, I recommend embracing the craziness within, I did.

Ah, Billy, the quest for perfection has been fulfilled! That is so very good to know. Smile

We plan to travel with our 17 year old calico cat, Snickers... for a full year. It will be interesting. She gets stressed by change- like moving a chair to a new spot in the living room. She also gets severely stressed out if we go away so we can't leave her anywhere. My theory on calicos is that their brains are as scrambled as their fur patterns. They are super sweet, though. We have a game plan but no idea if it will work. First step is a harness in case we have to fly with her or take her out without a carrier or walk her in the woods (she has been known to stalk deer - they aren't' quite sure what to make of her). She only had the harness on twice so far, but my face has healed nicely so it is time to give it another go. Next step is a soft sided carrier. I found a cool one on Costco.com that zips to expand and double the space that we hope will fit behind the driver seat on the 2552. Hopefully she'll take to that so I won't have to pry her off John's head as we travel down the road. Once we get the PC we plan to visit it with her and maybe spend a night or two in there without turning it on so she can adjust to the new space. A few short test drives later, we'll be cruising with a happy, well adjusted psychotic cat - at least that's the plan. Oh, large quantities of catnip might also be on board.

If anyone has experience with psycho fireballs in an RV, please pass on any suggestions. We'll probably need all the help we can get.

When I first heard the Ford Transit was replacing the E-Series vans I started noticing them on the road and thought NO WAY! Then I researched a bit more and found the the vans I was seeing are the Transit Connect. These are the baby cousins of the bigger, commercial Transit vans that are coming out. The bigger vans are still smaller than the E-450 as already stated.
