Well today was our final goodbye day to the Moho; our trusty home on wheels that safely moved us from coast to coast for the past five years (well four and a half). We traveled along flat desert highways, winding mountain roads and scenic bi-ways all over the USA and Canada. We saw incredible landmarks, witnessed some amazing wildlife and were awed by the wonders of Mother Nature across the continent. We met interesting folks from every walk of life and forged some forever friendships along our way. How blessed are we?
The memories and experiences we enjoyed are irreplaceable and we remain truly grateful for being so fortunate as to have had them. Our lifestyle was often the envy of our friends and family; many who joined us periodically for a week or two on our journey. Even as we part with our home on wheels we have formed another friendship with the new owners, Nancy and Rod from Alberta.
Because of the many components that come with a motorhome of this caliber, we spent an evening and the best part of a day going over everything with them. They are excited and looking forward to having some adventures of their own in the rig. I am sure it will be as loved by them as it was by us and no doubt they too will create some wonderful memories.
In case you are wondering, after being unsuccessful at finding a buyer by listing the Moho on the various RV sales sites and having a horrible experience leaving it with a consignment lot in Langley, we finally listed it in a 7 day listing on eBay. There were 28 watchers, one buyer and many emails and contacts just minutes before the auction closed. Rod and Nancy were the successful bidders and our eBay fees were a “whopping” $125.14, a far cry from the hundreds we shelled out at the various “for sale” sites in the fall.
Here is a picture of Rick saying a “tearful” goodbye to Rod, Nancy and the Moho at the BCRV Park in Burnaby where it was parked for two nights.
Goodbye Moho; you were a wonderful roof & ride and we will miss you! Continue to have an amazing journey with your new owners, Rod and Nancy!
