  • The ride from hell!!!!!!!!!!

    Well,the ride from hell took a whole 13 hours , through snow ice sleet etc.
    But we made it and it was well worth it, the van sits in the driveway filthy...

    Jamie from wagntails went through every little detail which was very overwhelming, and cant recall half of it lol..... Thank God for the owners manual.....lol

        I was wondering if you were able to pick up your van. I was thinking of you during last week's storm, hoping you had already got the van. I couldn't remember when you were picking it up and couldn't find the thread. They do give you alot of information all at one time, but don't worry, if you have any questions you can simply call them and they will be more than happy to help you. (And of course you can come here).

        Did you fly in? Did they pick you up in the WNT hummer?

        So, do you absolutely love it? Can you believe its yours?

        Good luck finding a place to wash it. Hopefully, you'll find a truck bay big enough. Once you start driving the van around for appointments you'll probably discover one, along with all types of businesses you've never noticed before.
        don't find yourself up a creek without a poodle.

              That's why I wanted to wait till March/April to start...NO SNOW!! But I didn't think about Michigan springs....oops. Well I won't know till I get my outline out to the banks anyway...which may FINALLY be soon. I need to get back to working on my Box plan so I'm prepared for the next step.

              Congrats and glad you made it safely. Good luck in starting.

              Good question, did you fly out? Did they pick you up? Did you pick it up the day you flew in or stay somewhere overnight? Was the plane expensive?

                  Congratulations!

                  It was a wonderful experience for my husband and me when we journeyed to SouthBend, Indiana. Does everyone cry the first time they see their finished unit or was it just me? Jamie was AWESOME! Guess what? If you have any problems or questions even 6 months or after....he's STILL awesome!

                  Praise God you made it home safely. We only had blinding rain at one point in New Mexico, where ALL the traffic had to pull over for about 20 minutes. Then there was a REALLY scary hour in Northeastern Arizona through winding mountains and sheer drop offs, hundreds of feet in the air. I was so thankful my husband drove through that, since I was phobic just sitting in the passenger seat.

                  All in all, it was the experience of a lifetime. The best is yet to come for you!

                      Welcome Home

                      I thought of you the other day after I saw your flier on the bulletin board at WaWa on 539 & 528. You sure you want to come out my way? Not much business down here. 3 groomers and a kennel or two around. I ususally have to leave "Dodge" to get clients. The ones around here are fairly infrequent. I have a few monthly appoints here though. Its dog eat dog around here.
