On June 4th I left Kentucky driving my RV known as Leggs. The trip is mostly unplanned, it will be interesting to see where I end up. Let's GO!

Last time we talked I was wasting time driving through and around the massive construction of a 2nd bridge to carry I-65. I bought the tripod (when I asked #1 Installer about WHAT tripod, I asked him if they were all the same - universal? I was told yes. I bought the ONLY tripod this huge place carried and felt good. And I was also feeling good (shortly the courts may ask you to verify this under oath) knowing BEN was an RV owner himself and my installer.
So I drove back to New Albany, Indiana NEXT DAY. Yesterday the guy (BEN) showed up right on time in that 4 hour window. I arrived a bit early and grabbed some fast food. I unpacked some stuff I had stored underneath and put it away in the RV. He showed up 3 hours after I got there. I do admit I learned a lot just sitting there.
Then I see the van approaching...Direct TV. New driver No Ben. The New Guy was stunned when I asked if he knew it was for an RV. He admitted that was a first for him. I told him the back story, and he said I got the wrong tripod.
He called the boss.
All I emphasized when I was being “SOLD” was RV. RV that moves. Tires. You know RV mounting is tough? Are you sure? They did not understand.
There was a flurry of calls. Ben got in the loop. Finally the installer told me if I got a certain antenna from someone out there, they could probably do the job. He also suggested I call a big local RV dealer and see if they had any suggestions.
I called Direct TV and directed them to cancel the “TV”.
Now I am looking into a few streaming deals. All a slave to the telephone tower proximity.
Today I went and registered LEGGS. It went pretty smoothly. I had all the paperwork my story was pretty basic. Guy living in Louisville with an Alaska drivers license buys an RV in Indiana from a guy who just died. YADDA. When I walked up to the lady at Motor Vehicles, waiting in line for over an hour, I told her I felt like I was taking the last few steps of a long journey. I asked her BE GENTLE. She was. I am now licensed and legal.
4 weeks ago I was talking to a dealer about the tow dolly. He was out of them and he was expecting a bunch of them soon. I called him a couple days ago and he was still waiting. Any minute.
