Photo taken on my ranch in Montana
After a couple of years absent and feeling very much like Goldilocks - buying big and then buying small rigs. First bought a Dynamax 28SS and while in transit back an RV broker called and asked if I wanted to sell. Heck, owned it about four days and not even home as yet having gone out to New Jersey to pick it up. The broker said his client was prepared to buy it for several thousand dollars over what I paid - sold! Then turned around and ordered an even larger rig - Dynamax Europa.
Then Covid and fuel prices went through the roof, I had to cancel it. Now all is good and have decided really needed a smaller unit so I can get to photo opportunities. The Pleasure Way Ascent can be driven like a car. Parking and turnouts are not a problem! And having owned two Pleasure Ways in the past, know all about them. The other two were: Pleasure Way TS in 2005 and then a Pleasure Way FL in 2020.
The good folks at LA MESA RV in Phoenix flew me in to pick up the rig on Thursday May 25th. Did the PDI walk through. Mark and Neil- sales, were wonderful and professional to deal with.
Would highly recommend dealing with either of these gentlemen should you be in the market for an RV. Since I had elected to take an out of state delivery so as to Beat the local taxes, we departed Friday morning for Gallup, New Mexico. Five hundred miles later I had the keys and started my drive to Silverton, Colorado. Arriving late, 9:30PM. Exhausted.
Silverton at night
Sadly as I pulled in for a nights sleep; as often happens; a glitch - no heat! With tempiture in the low forties and desending. I froze , not having the RV loaded with supplies. Misrable night. Although I had planned to spend a couple of days in Silverton; withour heat was forced to leave and begin the trip home. Being a holiday weekend there was no help to be had. So at around six in the morning went searching for breakfast. Only place open was the Coffe Bar, pleasent place with very good breakfast burritos
Early morning drive downtown Silverton
After breakfast and fueling drove down the "Million Dollar Highway", CO 550 to Ouray and beyond.
Please return for I will have the rest of the trip up in a couple of days
