Live your dreams, and worry only about things you can influence - the rest is going to happen anyway!


What’s funny is, on one occasion my husband, Nooch (nickname)
said “What did Marty do in this case”?!! Haha!

So, if your reading this, your probably wondering how Brad got “involved” in this journey.. I had posted the trip as it was happening in a private Facebook group, and added Martin to the loop. He saw a location I was at and told me to lookup Brad....
-Sorry Brad!!

Not only did I look him up! We planned to visit him after Nashville!!
Thankfully he gave me his number, because, after driving for a while and stopping for gas, we went to start the engine and it wouldn’t start!!!! He explained what can happen to these engines when they get hot.. Hubby (Nooch) did a few things and voila! We were up and running!!

1977 Argosy Driver Wiper mechanism needed!

Day 4. I really was looking forward to meet Brad, Peanut and "no name 74" !

It took us a while to get to his place-won't even go into detail.
I listened to GPS as opposed to Brad's directions.

Our first time driving at night and In the Rain

It was raining. Our lighting was very dim, and the drivers windshield wiper kept stopping en route. Someone had to navigate thru the working wiper!
(separate wiper motors)

Do they still sell the motor?

Yep, the motors are still available. If Manouch decides it needs to be replaced I can post a link to a replacement online.

Are the LED headlights installed yet?!

Finally made it to Brads.

AND Rosie and Peanut..(74' no name is stored indoors)

It’s been 2 months since my last post, needless to say we’ve been busy!! Since our heater core went at our initial test drive, I just figured I’d find one on the way home.. YA RIGHT!! . En route after Kentucky the weather had changed and it was FREEZING.. we stopped to get a 12v heater. Which we used as a defroster.. oh. Did I happen to mention we has a lot of problems with the driver side wiper.. kept getting stuck.. here my husband, Nooch driving in a snowstorm, on the highway with only a bit of a peephole from the 12v defroster.. he kept pulling over to fix wiper, it kept getting stuck.. .. I became the co-piolet.. #staytuned Click image for larger version

Good Luck charms?! Depends if one thinks like a pessimist or an optimist..

I’m surprised I didn’t throw them out the window after the 2nd freezing-sleepless night.

Again, I thank you for being my co-pilot and keeping me sane...

I wonder if you ever said “we will probably laugh about this one day”..🤦🏼*♀️

Sane is a relative term

I'm not sure I've ever uttered those words. However, it would be nice if they end up being true!

I definitely felt like I was going IN-SANE.
