Our new accessible, RV, Limo, tailgate vehicle was delivered 2 days before the trip. 600 miles from Elkhart, Indiana to Memphis, Tennessee and perfect. We load up to head to a Tigers game and 5 minutes on the road the “coolant low” indicator lights up and I smell the leak. Towed to dealership at 9pm. picked up Friday at 5pm, left for Destin at 10am Saturday. Super nice van but still a typical machine. I used to get a kick out of my mother -in-law when she said “I don’t understand my car was fine yesterday”. That’s because yesterday it wasn’t broken 🙂

The first trip was 2000 miles, 10 days in destin, 3 days at Weichert Convention in Orlando, and a night in Destin on the return. We expected challenges and problems along the way but had confidence it would work out fine. The van met all the needs of the trip. A few people got sick for a day or so, the weather was a little cold and cloudy, but overall a great trip. Good food, great scenery, and a lot of quality time with family, friends, and coworkers. Miramar Beach, Grayton Beach, Seaside, Seagrove, Lake Bueno Vista, Universal Studios, St Joe’s, Mexico Beach, Panama City, Watercolor Inn, and of course the Crab Trap, just to mention a few stops.

Our 2 newest recruits are pictured from the convention.  Tyler Bowman image3and Kyle Beard.  Tyler had a listing that sold while we were gone and Kyle is close to taking his test.  These young guys got a lot of attention at the convention.  Tyler spoke to Jim Weichert twice!  What a trip they had!  A beach house, 4 days at a golf resort in Panama city, Weichert convention and the Alabama Arkansas game in Tuscaloosa on the way back to Memphis.  No flats, no running out of gas, or lost keys…which if you know these guys that is a successful trip!

I am really looking forward to sharing all the info with our agents so that we can continue to improve our service to customers and clients.
