Enterprise Log, Life's Log. 2006 was great, can I have another?
02-24 Last Wishes
This was the year of the upgrade: I sold Enterprise A, a 1995 Rialta
and bought a 2004 Gulfstream BT Cruiser to become Enterprise B. There
was no doubting I liked the lifestyle and figured it was time for more
room and more reliability. The BT Cruiser, at 27 feet, is still small by
today's motorhome standards but is dramatically more room compared to
the Rialta. Of course that entails a trade--no more drive-through's, for
Tim Kaiser and I took the new BT Cruiser on a short shakedown cruise
North of Chicago and managed to get in a fair amount of flying. Ahhhh
it's nice having a full sized refrigerator and a shower I don't have to
pull out of the wall.
The BT also has a lot more power, scoffing at anything that
Illinois can present and even making good time climbing the mountain
mommas of Colorado. Of course I pay for that at the pump. She don't like
passing up a gas station and it's an expensive stop.
Pictured right above is Tim Kaiser in San Diego before setting out on
the return mission to Chicago with Enterprise A. Below is yours truly
flying a broom at year's end in Phoenix with Enterprise B.
Overall it's been a most welcome upgrade and I hope for many more
years of enjoyment.
