Well, if all goes according to the grand plan, I should own this vehicle, the VW Vanagon campervan I've not been able to stop talking about, by late tomorrow. This is a view from the back bench seat with both of the tables set up and the driver's seat turned. The lid that covers the stove and sink is shown lifted on the left.
Not having researched used car loans lately, I was surprised to be offered a rate of 12.55% at my bank. I have a lower rate of 5.99% at the local credit union, and really hope I can finalize things with them today, as I'm scheduled to meet the seller (with a check in my hand) at the mechanic's tomorrow afternoon to finalize the deal. I'll leave it there while I go to my conference in Ithaca, and pick it up (all road-ready) when I come back. Insert happy dance here (boing, boing, boing).
If the loan doesn't come through today, the seller is very nice, and I'm fairly certain I could give him some money to hold onto it until I come back. I'd sure like to get it done before I go, though.
In other news, I had dinner with the new person I met online, and it turned into a 4 hour deal, which is always a good sign. It's been great fun so far.
And other, other news: today is the last day of school for Mr W. He's got a half day today, and then no school tomorrow (what on earth were those people thinking?) then is off for a week with his dad, and then to camp and then he and I will likely go to MN this summer to see my brother and his wife.
