We did some cleaning and organizing in the morning. Then we went to town. The truck wasn't ready, so we went to an Antique Mall to look around. The State Farm agent called while we were there and said the papers were being faxed from Nevada. We found her office right away. She was so friendly and helpful. We signed all the paperwork, took the check and went back to the dealership. The truck still wasn't ready. Everybody at the dealership loved Daisy and wanted to see her each time we back (again). We went to lunch at McAllister's. It was so tasty! We liked the sign that said something to the effect of "Tipping is not necessary. We pay our employees well to do a good job. If you leave a tip,
it will be donated to a local charity." How about that? Back we go to the dealership. No truck. The salesman says it is ready and he will go over to the place installing the hitch and pick up the truck personally. While we're waiting, the manager decides that now we can sign the papers for the truck. At last, we hand over the check, make our down payment, and get the temporary tags. We'll mail the paperwork to Nevada for the Nevada taxes and registration.
When we're done, the truck is back and it's time for the salesman to "deliver" it to us. He takes us on a test drive and shows us the bells and whistles. Then in the parking lot of the dealership, he goes through the OnStar and the XM radio for their free trials. HOOOO! Then, we put everything from the little loaner car into the truck. Finally, at about 5:30, in the rain, we head back to the camper to celebrate and relax!
We went to sleep dreaming of our newly purchased freedom!
