All of the insurance money came in. A total of $7000. This can buy a it van that might last us a couple of years, or get us a motor home off of Craigslist.
But not both. We need both.
On the one hand, getting a motor home will allow us have a place to sleep once we make it to Texas. We have a loft in the shed that we were going to make into a bedroom for Nathan.
On the other hand, we also need a vehicle that will fit all eight of us. It would be difficult to take hour home to church every week. And forget our monthly family trips to Tyler for bulk shopping. The scion can only seat 5, including the driver.
We could make two trips to church in the small car, but going out to games, school functions, and church functions would be very difficult, if not impossible.
So one plan is to get a Motor home. Take that with us to Texas, then see what we can do for a car. Actually we will be looking for a house there, too.
The one we are looking at at the moment is close to $10000. It’s nice, but I don’t think we will be able to talk them down enough to purchase it outright. We will see tonight.
